THE INDISPENSABLE BOND BETWEEN ‘HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT’ AND ‘THE COACHING WORLD’

As an HR lead, what’s your style? Authoritative or collaborative? 

A company’s culture is vital for holistic enhancement.

Throwing commands at your team may not go a long way. An organisation’s management led by communication and passion creates a smooth and efficient work experience.

Employees need to be coached. Coaching builds a conversation which empowers employees to resolve on their own. Coaching is a fruitful method in employee development. Work of an HR professional is to maximise human capital.  A coach facilitates the overall growth of the company, improving employee relations. Coaching aids a smooth work environment and enables in reaching both personal and organisational goals.

Why Coaching for an HR?

HR professionals in different roles stay invested in resolving human and behavioural issues. Their time and energy could be used for better organizational productivity when they step in as a Coach. 

Career progression decisions, team coalition, and other behavioural dynamics need the nudge of a Coach. Coaches promote a coaching culture imbibed with intrinsic values that align with organizational growth. For an employee, working with a coach can give you the edge you need to improve your work skills, discover your strengths, and achieve your goals.

HR: A BASE OF LEADERSHIP COACHING IN AN ORGANISATION

HR has a colourful feather on their hats, with each colour representing different tasks they have to undertake in order to build up the organisation and reach the next level. From making strategies and plans for years to come( multi-year plan) to recommend people to identify talents in the company, to resolve conflicting situations, look upon the finances and several other colours of feathers that keeps on changing with projects and plans.

Working with a coach can give you the edge you need to improve your work skills, discover your strengths, and achieve your goals. Coaching is proven to work when these two factors are present: you are willing to grow, and there is a gap between where you are now and where you want to be. 

For an organisation to have a coaching culture, there are four essential steps to it:

  1. CULTURE BUILDING FROM TOP TO BOTTOM

It all starts at the top. Managers, leaders and HR’s will have to first be the torchbearers to bring in the culture in the organisation. Coaching will have to be a part of every strategy, meetings and chats, as an HRM taking the reins of an inspiring spokesperson each day and giving the motivation to the employees, will eventually lead to everyone working as a team of partners resulting in improved employee performance and overall growth of the company.

        2. FOSTER COACHING LEARNING

As an HR professional, it would be a responsibility on your shoulders to inculcate the coaching principles and understanding in each and every employee, by setting up virtual learning sessions or classrooms, coaching them more, the better it will be.

       3. APPLICATION

An HR coach can help employees implement what they learn. A business plan towards the organisation can be created by keeping the coaching principles in mind and can be worked upon to achieve great heights and individual goals with the partnership of an employee and HRM coach.

       4. LEAD BY EXAMPLE

As an HRM coach, it would be your responsibility at first to hold employees together and show them you have their best interest in mind, by complimenting them on their achievements, by showing them you value their efforts towards the organisational goals. 

Coaching culture can help align each employee’s personal goals with organisational goals. As an HR, it would be a smoother work environment for you if coaching culture is in the roots of the organisation, several conflicts can be avoided and ‘I’ perspective can be changed into ‘WE’ perspective, and employee performance can be improved and match the company's expectations.
