What is coaching?
Dr Michael Hall & Michael CW Chang
There are numerous definitions and the Meta-Coaching’s definition is:
“Coaching is the art of facilitating an individual or organisation to an agreed upon outcome via a conversation like none other by mobilising inner and outer resources and getting to the heart of the matter in order to develop, unleash and actualise potentials.”
Some benefits of coaching include:
(1) Enables us to transfer skills and learning from training room to the workplace.
“Rackham N. at Xerox Corporation conducted research that shows that 87% of newly learned skills can be lost when there is no follow-up coaching after the training.” The Coaching Controversy, Training and Development Journal, 1979.
(2) Enables us to tap into unused and wasted human resources.
“The coach’s job is exactly like that of managers, to translate the purpose of the team (winning) into appropriate effort (performing at one’s best). No coach in his right mind would waste player talent by not using them fully or be satisfied with compliance rather than whole-hearted effort.” (Gary English)
(3) Enables us to take corrective action before a problem arises.
“Corrective coaching needs to spring into action when certain attitudes and behaviours point to serious problems down the road. Performance problems and dissension inevitably arise in workplaces and must be dealt with promptly and intelligently. (Nigro)
(4) Offers a new paradigm for adult change, learning and management.
“As a new paradigm, coaching offers a new approach to personal transformation and renewal. Coaching invites us to think about change in terms of becoming more, refining and adding new skills, focusing on direction and outcomes, and receiving feedback as information for continuous improvement. As a paradigm, coaching presents and implies numerous frames that support the process of transformation as a positive experience. Unlike counselling, therapy, and even consulting, coaching does not imply there’s anything wrong.”
“Meta-Coaching is a conversation like none other, that gets to the heart of things by finding the frames that create your reality and systematically show you how to change what you want to change and unleash your potentials.” (Michael Hall)
