What is a Coaching Culture?
Let's start by explaining what a coaching culture is (in our opinion). Watch this video extract from a recent webinar that we ran entitled
'The First Steps to a Sustainable Coaching Culture'
7 Ideas To Help Build A Sustainable Coaching Culture (White Paper)
As the modern workplace environment continues to change at pace, the need for a more enlightened approach to management has never been more urgent.
No longer will people put up with the traditional, desk-thumping ‘command and tell’ before packing their bags and moving on — instead, retention has become the focus for most employers.
And with that focus, comes the need to engage people differently so that they’ll stay for longer than the projected average of less than two years for Millennials...

Benefits of a Coaching Culture
We have worked with many organisations helping them introduce a coaching culture across their business, and have seen 1st hand the wealth of benefits gained from having leaders use more of a coaching style in their everyday interactions. Here are just a few real examples from our clients utilising this new management style:
“Quicker delivery of a project into the business. Once fully embedded it is worth £1m per annum savings.”
“New cashing-up procedures that allow for cash payments has generated increased revenue of c.£700 per day in one outlet!”
“Because our Team found the best way to anticipate the works, we haven’t had any claims from tenants – saving overall €300-€500k”
"The positive moment is realisation that a command culture is not the only way to get improvements! Coaching and development will help sustain long-term results, not just short-term fixes."
“Working with the Operations Team helping them solve their own issues relating to labour management – saved £4m YTD”
“Halved annual sickness rate, saving around £2,000 in shift cover”
“It allowed me to get the most out of a talented, eager but inexperienced graduate. The completed project probably saved us c£50-£100k. The ongoing benefits to the business are unquantifiable.”
Creating win/win relationships with external suppliers and Unions
“The supplier .. couldn't understand the impact they have on our operations if the service goes wrong. Taking up a coaching approach stopped the e-mail tennis and we now meet F2F to resolve at monthly intervals. I am adopting the approach to help support a win / win culture.”
“Long-term issues have been resolved through a change of approach, including certain discussions with trade unions and, what had been reoccurring, weekly delivery issues, including a reduction in operational cost, delivering 11% YOY improvement."
Other benefits of utilising coaching style of leadership include:
- A proactive and solution based workforce

Something to think about
"I never cease to be amazed at the power of the coaching process to draw out the skills or talent that was previously hidden within an individual, and which invariably finds a way to solve a problem previously thought unsolvable."
"Business coaching is attracting America’s top CEOs because, put simply, business coaching works. In fact, when asked for a conservative estimate of monetary payoff from the coaching they got… managers described an average return of more than $100,000, or about six times what the coaching had cost their companies."
