A step-by-step guide to supercharging the coaching culture inside your organization, from the New York Times bestselling author of The Oz Principle and The Wisdom of Oz.
Coaching is the most effective method for boosting human performance. Studies shows that it increases productivity by 88%. Coaching, however, has become increasingly exclusive due to the high costs of external coaches. Managers, responsible for coaching the people on their teams, are overburdened by an ever-increasing span of control with little time to coach. The solution: extend coaching to the masses, so that everyone, at every level in the organization, can get the coaching they need, when they need it.
A fresh take on a traditional model, Get a Coach, Be a Coach combines decades of first-hand experience with real-life stories and practical exercises. Drawing on over 30 years of advising senior management all over the world, authors Roger Connors, Jeff Adcock, Kelly Andrews, and Seth Connors offer a bottoms-up strategy: Self-Directed Performance Coaching. Unlike most coaching styles, this innovative approach puts the Learner, not the Coach, in charge of the learner-coach relationship.
Self-Directed Performance Coaching is for anyone, from brand-new hires and middle managers to senior leaders and C-level executives, who seeks to boost performance. All you have to do is:
• Identify your Most Important Thing, whether it’s that pitch you want to deliver or client you want to impress,
• Find a Coach who's a Level Up, or someone who has already acquired the skills and experience you need,
• Coach your Coach, or guide your coaching relationship to meet your specific learning needs, and
• Be a Coach, and share your newfound expertise with the next generation of Learners.
This book is for all who want to create a thriving coaching culture within their organization.
