Reaching our Full Potential
Axiom’s research over the past 30 years clearly shows that one thing employees want most is to be heard. People at their core want to be valued, and being heard is perhaps the most critical component. This is where a shift from “managing” to “coaching” can make a huge difference.
Shifting to a coaching culture furthers your ability for every employee to reach their full potential. When leaders act as coaches, they unleash more potential in their teams, while allowing their teams to take on more accountability. It is often tough for leaders to transition though … leaders often feel valuable themselves by having the answers and making the decisions. Letting go can be difficult.
Axiom works with organizations to help make this transition easier through leader learning, practice and reflection.
Axiom’s coaching model focuses on 5 core coaching skills:
- Powerful Questions
- Active Listening
- Empowering Feedback
- Guiding Action
If you believe it’s time for your leaders to truly enable their teams to reach their potential, then it’s time to explore supporting them in creating a coaching culture.
