We know from numerous research studies, in addition to anecdotes from executives, managers, and employees, about how effective coaching is in the workplace. As a result of the success of coaching and the ROI (return on investment) it brings, organizations have recognized the value in building a culture of coaching. A culture that offers employees, at all levels, the opportunity to grow their skills, enhance their value, and reach their professional goals.

In an organization with a coaching culture, coaching is considered as a strategic business model and critical talent management tool. To ensure successful results that go beyond skills training that increases employee engagement and retention, an organization needs to develop a comprehensive coaching plan that addresses both current and future needs. Ensure everyone from senior executives to entry-level employees understand the value of coaching to the organization and build coaching as a regular activity and competency for managers and internal coach practitioners. Coaching is key in having a successful leadership pipeline.
