Why coach-based training for organizations is becoming a necessity?
Today we have huge accessibility to all the information we need by a click of a button. Its not like it used to be years ago where getting the right information was a quest by itself.
If you want to know more about anything, you can just ask Google or any other search engine and you will be flooded with information, that's besides the tons of free resources and online education in any field that is available today.
Our awareness has expanded tremendously in subjects that we know and in many that we are not even interested in.
Therefore, the real problem is not knowing it is actually applying what we already know, and want. Training alone is not the answer anymore.
By Working with a coach or a mentor you will have a trusted someone working with you on what you already know and want to have manifested in your life.
Similarly in organizations millions of dollars are spent on bringing the latest in functional and leadership related information to the members of the organization, nonetheless the rate of success in implementing those is not measuring up to the expectations behind the investment. Which is obviously implementing this know-how into the business to thrive.
Accordingly, the question becomes How can I guarantee that people in my team or even myself apply what we had learnt and want to implement to enhance our business.
Leadership and executive coaching is merely about that. By having a coach assisting me through the process of actually changing what I said I want to change and to hold me accountable, till I reach my goals is an accelerator to the learning and implementing what I learnt process.
Many organizations today are moving towards group coaching to maximize the benefits of training and to minimize the investment per employee.
Therefore, coach-based training is becoming a viable solution, where instead of assigning a coach to work with one person or two, the coach will be working with a number of employees, or managers to master the targeted leadership competency.
And since the training is not only about information and (don’t get me wrong here) information, latest methods and research are extremely important, nevertheless coach-based training leverage coach-based tools to facilitate learning and actual implementation of the information into our daily practice.
In this context I have to add that follow up is extremely important in this whole process whether in 1-1 sessions or group coaching sessions to guarantee individual commitment.
Which means there has to be a mechanism of follow up process in place in any group coaching engagement.
