#302 – Coaching with Integrity: How to Cultivate Inner Change in Your Organization

HR Power Lunch

​​Coaching – helping individuals build knowledge and skills to reach their own and organizational goals – has become central practice in growing organizations. The old model of pressuring behavioural change toward organizational goals has not worked well, as evidenced by large workforce turnover and employee dissatisfaction. The new model of coaching with integrity keeps the employee’s agency and choice at the center of the process, and so mobilizes people’s natural motivation as they build their capacities and grow with the organization.
