Creating a Coaching Culture

“A coach is someone who tells you what you don’t want to hear, who has you see what you don’t want to see, so you can be who you have always known you can be.” — Tom Landry

Mentoring and Reverse Mentoring have made strong in-roads in our multi-generational workforce, and they have their place in a professional development plan. Coaching adds another dimension through techniques and a guiding partnership that allows all levels of the organization to alter their interactions to inquiry; enhancing learning and leadership development. Moving from an “or” environment to “and” through mentoring, professional development opportunities, training, AND coaching enhances our colleagues’ career progress.
