L&D leaders understand the ways in which coaching can transform their organizations, from helping to create more inclusive leaders to increasing productivity.
So why are so many businesses only providing leadership coaching to their most senior leaders? Often, it’s because they rely on manual processes to deliver their programs.
In 2023, coaching software is available that enables L&D teams to streamline and scale their coaching. In our new playbook, we explain how L&D leaders like you can use coaching software to achieve a more holistic coaching strategy – ‘Leadership Coaching 2.0’.
What is ‘Leadership Coaching 2.0’?
Leadership coaching was once solely used as a remedial tool. When businesses began to realize the benefits coaching can bring to leaders and the organization as a whole, they started to take a more strategic approach to coaching. But even today, coaching is often limited to senior leaders.
‘Leadership Coaching 2.0’ is the ideal state of enterprise leadership coaching. It means creating a coaching culture. It means providing coaching for leaders at every level. It means maximizing the impact of coaching across your enterprise.
5 priorities for ambitious L&D leaders
If you want to harness the power of coaching and achieve the ideal state of enterprise-wide development, you should focus on making your coaching programs:
- Scalable – so you can provide every leader with consistently excellent coaching
- Visible – so you can track their progress in line with your goals
- Strategic – so you can strengthen your succession plan
- Inclusive – so you can develop leaders from all backgrounds and levels of experience
- Measurable – so you can demonstrate the impact your coaching is creating across your organization.
This is much easier if you have the right leadership coaching software at your fingertips.
How can coaching technology help?
If you want to take your leadership coaching to the next level, you need a holistic technology platform at the heart of your organization.
A single, all-in-one solution that enables your coaches to schedule meetings, send resources to clients, and have visibility of each coaching engagement. A solution that your leaders can use to choose their coach, complete assignments, and look back on – and add to – their coaching journey as they rise in the company.
Most importantly, a platform that makes it simple for you to view leaders’ progress and scale their coaching programs, while honoring the transformational and confidential nature of the coach/client relationship that is at the core of leader growth.
