Are you working in a "coaching culture?"

Do you work for a company with a "coaching culture?" According to a study by Bersin & Associates, organizations that effectively prepare managers to coach are 130% more likely to realize stronger business results and 39% stronger employee results through engagement, productivity and customer service. Additionally, organizations whose senior leaders "very frequently" make an effort to coach others have 21% higher business results.

Companies that DON'T have a coaching culture may be less innovative because they are unable to take advantage of the full range of ideas and knowledge at all levels of an organization. They may lose key employees by not adequately developing them and keeping them sufficiently engaged. They may not meet current strategic goals because they do not effectively harness the collective capabilities of the employee. Find out if your organization is winning at this or is in danger of being left behind.
