Coaching critical to productivity, finds new study
Nearly 37 percent of employees say they never receive career coaching
Growing numbers of staff say their boss is not a good career coach as the majority in a new study agree coaching improve job performance.
Nearly 37 percent of employees said they never received career coaching, while 18 percent were coached by their boss only once a year, according to a new study of 500 UK office workers by recruiters Robert Half.
The majority of those polled said benefits of career coaching include improved motivation and overall job satisfaction.
“As departments continue to be tasked to do more with less, companies embracing and cultivating effective leaders will not only get the most from their existing teams, but will earn the reputation as a great place to work, helping their attraction and retention strategies,” Phil Sheridan, managing director of Robert Half UK, said
Robert Half said it had identified four types of coach with their characteristics and what steps coaches can take to get the most out of their relationships with their teams.
The four types include the definitive coach, who tends to be natural leaders. The collaborative coach, who shows excellent listening skills and are good at fostering cooperation among diverse groups. The persuader coach who is typically an “ideas” person and the diagnostic coach with organisation and careful planning as their hallmarks.
