Why is Coaching Important?
In the new era characterised by constant VUCA, resilience becomes a precious competency for any organisation in order to be able to thrive during times of uncertainty and crisis.
At the same time, the workforce composition mix is changing as more Millennials are becoming decision-makers and as more members from Generation X are joining the workforce. These new members have different values, beliefs, thinking and ways of working.
Given the new business environment, organisations are realising that employees’ development and capacity-building is no longer a luxury.
The new business imperatives place significant demands on all employees. These include more complex work, longer hours, and fewer resources to overcome the new challenges. For companies to grow and thrive in the new era, leaders need to shift leadership, or the management of a team, from themselves to others. New employee competencies are needed for an organisation to be able to deal effectively with crisis and unexpected change, and at the same time digitally transform itself in an effective manner. Ultimately, it is about the coach and the coachee living a co-created and shared experience. Implementing a coaching culture throughout the organisation is now more critical than ever!
