Better Conversations Every Day™

A feedback culture starts with better conversations at all levels of your organization.

More powerful than strategy and more persistent than vision, the culture of your organization either enables sustainable performance or subverts it. And a coaching culture of feedback can be the key differentiator that puts you ahead of the competition.

Frequently Asked Questions About Coaching Skills & A Culture of Feedback

Many organizations expect leaders to provide on-the-job coaching and hold them accountable for developing others. Being able to give effective feedback and coach direct reports is a vital tool for developing talent and meeting performance goals. Leaders with coaching skills are able to hold candid coaching conversations that create psychological safety, build shared understanding, and promote follow-through that creates growth and leads to meaningful change. Honing your coaching skills gives you the necessary tools to build relationships, break down silos, sustain performance, and promote better business outcomes. Coaching skills are also important because they help build trust, collaboration, emotional intelligence, and resilience within your organization. 

A coaching conversations training program will help build your coaching skills and increase your comfort with delivering feedback. When many people at an organization use coaching practices in their everyday interactions, it helps to create a common mindset, skillset, and leadership language, shaping a productive culture of feedback. 

A culture of feedback improves not only the way employees interact with each other, but also the interactions they have with customers and potential clients. It yields more productive dialogue, shared understanding, and robust solutions by creating an environment where people feel free to uncover unspoken reservations, explore assumptions, and stress-test ideas. Quite simply, better culture starts with better conversations

Building a culture of feedback involves much more than providing different types of coaching in the workplace. A feedback culture focuses on creating an environment of candor and psychological safety by shifting unwritten rules, values, norms, behaviors, and practices to spread a coaching mindset and coaching skills and practices throughout the organization. That way, a culture of coaching becomes infused throughout a company and its identity.
