All great business leaders have had at least one good coach or mentor to help them develop to their full potential. Unfortunately, in this day of “lean organisations” and hectic schedules, many professionals cannot get the level of coaching and mentoring they need to meet their own developmental goals.
Sadly, some managers do not have the skills or abilities to coach their people and in many organisations around Australia and New Zealand too many managers are spending far too much time behind their desk working on ‘very important reports and strategies’ and not enough time with their people coaching them.
And yet research has repeatedly proven that Coaching develops the capability and skills your people must possess in order to be successful in their role and critical to future business success.
The KONA Group has therefore developed executive coaching programs with a strong strong emphasis on follow up coaching to ensure any training content is implemented and reinforced on the job and/or in the field and not left in the ‘classroom’
This follow up coaching will focus on the individual needs of your team to help them transition them to the ‘next step’, be it with your Management and Leadership team; Sales and Marketing People, or HR and Operations
Coaching effectively takes individuals to the level of capability the organisation requires within their role and is conducted over a period of time utilising a combination of workshops, one-on-one ‘on the job’ coaching, goal setting and continuous monitoring or mentoring. Coaching is also utilised to implement the new knowledge, skills and methodologies people learn during workshops. It has been proven that the benefit of supporting a ‘training’ programme with ‘coaching’ increases the traction of information learnt by 80% ensuring a sound return on the investment.
Regular Coaching will implement the ‘theoretical’ information to ‘practical application’ and also stop the workshop attendees going back to their old habits
