Coaching is a business process just like project management, Agile, Waterfall, Six Sigma, etc. To have a Coaching Culture, everyone has to remain in the coaching conversation.
The foundation for a Coaching Culture includes two things:
- A common process
- A common language.
In turn, these two elements create common expectations. As your organization implements a Coaching Culture, you will start to hear people referring to parts of the process and using common terms in their daily conversations. In this way, a Coaching Culture takes the guesswork out of communicating in the workplace.
If the goal is transformative change, a Coaching Culture is essential. And for a Coaching Culture to truly work, it is essential for everyone to work from the same framework and processes. Beyond that, a Coaching Culture requires that all involved fully participate. Your leaders, managers and their employees develop the skills to make this possible.
- With a Coaching Culture, there is a common mindset of continuous growth and development. This dialogue increases and focuses communication and creates a culture of collaboration rather than command and control style of management.
- Accountability becomes possible and even prevalent because the focus is on what is working versus what is wrong.

Thank you for making the management training and “Coaching” journey possible through People Biz.,Inc. Both Deborah and Alicia have left an indelible imprint on my life. As a result, I have been professionally and personally transformed into a “present” leader within my organization. I am thrilled to be part of positive change at IV and to share this experience with others. Through this process, I have developed strong working relationships with others who attended this course. Together we will strengthen the IV culture towards possibility and courageous action!
