Effective coaching and mentoring promotes creativity, performance and resilience, giving organisations a competitive edge and an effective way to operate within an environment of continuous change.
Successful organizations recognise that managers must be able to coach their employees and each other, and have included coaching in their management/leadership development.
Increasingly, organisations are realizing the many benefits of developing talent through coaching and mentoring. Since LMA first began conducting its Leadership Employment and Direction (L.E.A.D.) Survey in 2000, the development and coaching of others and building relationships (both internal and external) have featured amongst the most important leadership competencies expected of leaders. The most recent findings affirm that these remain two of the five most important competencies in the eyes of employees.
Today companies are turning to coaching and mentoring to harness the value of internal employee resources to develop others, which saves time, cost, and increases overall employee satisfaction.
The impact of coaching and mentoring within organisations is proven. However, effectively coaching and mentoring others or establishing programs for coaching and mentoring can still be a challenge.
