Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the Coaching at Work IQ Matrix:
- Workplace Coaching: The first branch of the map explores what workplace coaching is and how it can help support the growth and development of the organization. Coaching, essentially, creates the conditions for setting higher standards of excellence across the organization. It allows you to get the very best from every employee in the role they play.
- The Workplace Coach: Effective coaching requires a very specific approach and a very skilled coach. This second branch breaks down what it means to be a workplace coach. For instance, a workplace coach must have certain traits and qualities. They must understand how to read people’s psychological tendencies. And they must know how to use feedback and direction appropriately.
- The Coaching Process: The final two branches of this map explore the six-step coaching process. This process can help guide staff members from a problem to an effective solution that meets organizational goals. The six steps of this process include: (#1) Identifying performance goals. (#2) Analyzing a coachee’s current reality, strengths, and performance. (#3) Exploring potential options and obstacles. (#4) A commitment to taking action. (#5) The implementation of an action plan. (#6) Reviewing progress made toward desired outcomes.
Stick with these principles, memorize, and incorporate them into your organization’s culture and practices, and you will very quickly find that an investment in coaching will pay back ten-fold with increased productivity and higher standards of performance across the organization.
