Coaching Distinctions for Leaders
Written by Michaleen K. Lewis MS-OD, PCC, CPLP
As the leader of your organization, you are tasked with creating a focused, productive and engaged workforce for a higher level of success all around. You've probably attended an array of workshops, podcasts and have read numerous books on how to complete this challenge. The vast definition of an "expert" on the topic of coaching can be confusing. What is your approach; would it be best to be a coach, a mentor, a consultant or a counselor for your organization? In fact, what is your definition of coaching and other related experts? My experience as an ICF Certified Coach has taught me that the greatest value to an organization comes from a leader who is also an effective coach; one who coaches in every 1:1 and group encounter. Coaching is all about WHO WE ARE BEING as a person. This article will explain how true this is for you and how YOU can make the best use of your time and resources coaching across our diverse workforce populations.
