What are the benefits of coaching?

  • General Improvement in Performance
    • Coaching provides attention and focus from an outside viewpoint. This generally leads to an increase in performance by the one being coached. If that is not the case, this could be an indicator about fit and a need to make a change either for the sake of the individual leader, the organization they serve, or both. Coaching in this way can even be a type of “job fit analysis.”
  • Raising Awareness and Feedback
    • With attention also comes feedback. A good coach not only knows how to offer useful feedback, they share it effectively and work with the leader whom they are coaching to help facilitate growth. Put another way, a good coach, through feedback, helps a leader fully lean into and express their expertise.
  • Responsibility and Accountability
    • A coach is someone that not only trains or instructs, they also help hold a leader responsible and accountable to themselves. They provide accountability by providing feedback to the leader and allowing the leader to process and learn from what they are experiencing.
  • Encouragement
    • The best coaches may not always be positive, but usually they find a way to positively encourage the people they are coaching. In coaching leadership, this means the ability to identify strengths and to be honest with feedback, but to also take experiences (good or bad) and help leaders drive to a deeper sense of success and purpose.

Working with SCC, I was able to realize my own potential and am now directing several homeless youth programs here at Pillsbury House. They helped me to see my own potential to grow from a competent youth worker to someone who was capable of managing and directing a successful program with a sizable budget.
