Coaching in community based organisations
Coaching in community based organisationsManagers in community based organisations operate in a complex world with responsibilities to stakeholders as well as the usual range of organisational responsibilities. Managers often report to Boards or Management Committees and need to achieve the delivery of high quality services with limited resources. Many managers want to get better at what they do and want something specific and focused on them and their work. This requires something different from a training programme.
The Spelman Group works with the manager to set objectives making use of Lominger competencies to achieve a clear focus. This ensures that goal setting for subsequent coaching sessions is sharp and relevant.
What happens in a coaching session?In coaching sessions the manager outlines a dilemma or situation and the coach listens and contributes questions designed to develop clarity. The coach brings knowledge of the environment that the manager works in. As well as actively listening for content, the coach looks for patterns of behaviour and those "aha" moments when the manager recognises something about himself or herself and sees a way forward. There is a strong emphasis on encouraging reality checks and identifying options as part of the coaching process. This is essential to ensure that the quality of decision making regarding next steps is sound and agreed action is sustainable.

Through the process of coaching, people usually extend and deepen their learning, improve their work performance and enhance their quality of life. This naturally has benefits for the organisation as well.
