The ongoing #Covid19 pandemic has unveiled how little we are doing to sustain our organizations in the future. Unpredictable change and disruption can come in the most unexpected ways and times. Organizations, leaders, and employees all need to be better equipped to deal with the existing and forthcoming dynamic environment. Competencies that made leaders successful in the past are longer adequate. Leaders are unable to cope with the fast pace of change. These are times when leaders and individuals need #coaching to develop new capabilities to enable themselves, their teams, and organizations to grow and thrive in the #VUCA world of today and tomorrow.
The culture of coaching helps build a culture of resilience
The American Psychological Association defines resilience as “the process of adapting well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats or significant sources of stress — such as family and relationship problems, serious health problems or workplace and financial stressors.”
Defining the word more simply, #resilience, according to Merriam Webster, “is the ability to bounce back from change or challenge.”
The Covid19 #Pandemic has been one of the biggest challenges facing a whole generation of leaders. Resultantly, the new leadership skill set encapsulates being mindful, self-aware, and able to cope with new challenges while maintaining wellbeing and continuing to lead your people effectively. Coaching can help develop these skills to overcome ongoing challenges and improve performance.
Let’s look into a few challenges faced by most leaders today, where coaching can help them bounce back from the situations.
- Balancing remote working needs while providing everyone fair access to communication, support, development, and inclusion.
- Transforming crisis – transpired from lost opportunities – by developing a progressive mindset and seizing subsequent opportunities.
- Boosting your team’s morale while keeping up your own, showing intense energy – all the time!
- Establishing a culture of problem-solving, resilience, processes, team-spirit, and coaching.
The future of leadership is coaching
At Regal Unlimited we believe that fostering mentorship and coaching culture at work is integral for companies to survive the pandemic and the way ahead. The shift to remote working spaces requires us to focus on employee development as central to better communication and collaboration within teams. With more employees spending time alone and limited face-to-face interactions, we need to support and make time for morale-boosting, team building, and positive interactions between teams. Our leadership coaching programs support leaders to drive more engagement and motivation to help employees understand the value of aligning personal goals with those of the organization
Our Executive and Leadership Coaching program, certified by #ICF , is designed to equip senior leaders to make better decisions, drive strategic initiatives, maximize critical thinking and develop a proactive attitude towards work. It also inspires individuals to maximize their personal and professional potential. Further, organizations opting for #executive coaching for their key talent observes a visible positive shift in employee engagement, interpersonal relationships, and most importantly, improved employee productivity with excellence orientation.
As companies assess the impact of Covid-19, we, at Regal Unlimited, propose to assist leaders & executives and facilitate them through the new #crisis at work. The opportunities and the tool-kit provided in our coaching programs help develop a skill set to adapt and create positive changes within an organization and address concerns and “put out fires” effectively. As we examine the workforce’s return to the workplace or even remote work setups, we must rise to meet challenges with optimism and find potential in the processes and people involved.
“Capable leaders, backed by credible coaching, support their teams with empathy & inclusiveness, and create a collaborative effort that results in a value-driven work-life that inspires action.
