Higher employee retainment is a result of an executive coaching partnership that shows the power coaching can have on the exec and the company as a whole. Keep reading Arden Coaching’s post to find out how coaching can help you to retain employees, starting with the executive and branching out to other levels and departments.
Inspiring the Executive
Most directly, executive coaching can help your company retain the executive who’s participating in the coaching process. Setting your executives on coaching’s path of enhanced perspective and leadership development often gives them with a renewed sense of purpose in their positions.
A common scenario in which organizations turn to executive coaching is in the case of an executive who may feel burnt out within their role. Executive coaches are trained to help executives evaluate their current performance and determine what strategies work well and which ones cause friction. A coach can also open the executive to more effective solutions to workplace challenges.
Showing that the company is willing to provide a coach’s support for the executive helps them feel more invested in their own success and the organization’s success.
A Retainment Ripple Effect
At the executive level, a lot rides on the systems and structures that are put in place. When you increase the emotional intelligence of the person in charge of an entire department, that department is more likely to stay intact, promote change, and move forward.
Even subtle changes in the way in which an executive interacts with others can work to shift the outlooks and lift the spirits of employees throughout the organization. A once closed-off leader who now takes more time to listen to others and consider their points of view will instantly elevate the employees around them.
Improving an executive’s leadership skills can also help him or her prepare for when an employee leaves in the context of retaining others. When employees lose peers with whom they have strong connections, they’re more likely to wonder if they should follow suit.
Coaching can be especially effective in helping executives develop the confidence they need to lead their department in uncertain times. With these new skills, execs have everything they need to do a turnover turnaround, setting the organization on track to cultivate the greatest resource they already have: their employees!
Commit to Making a Change
Developing an executive’s leadership skills can help them find a new sense of purpose in their work and inspire their teams to do the same. If you’re looking for a better way to retain your company’s talent from entry level to executive, a coaching partnership could be the push your executives need to take your organization to the next level.
