We often associate organisational development with supporting people to achieve the goals of the organisation. But when it comes to developing individuals we often find that traditional interventions and incentives aren’t effective in achieving the engagement and motivation that we know will be critical for the business to succeed.
Enter coaching. Proponents consider this relatively new approach to developing people to be highly effective and indeed critical in building stronger, happier and better performing organisations. But how to build an organizational context for coaching that aligns these initiatives with a greater organizational purpose and ethos?
Doug Silsbee is a global thought leader in the fields of presence-based coaching, leadership development and resilience. His work integrates deep experience in the development of individuals and organisations using mindfulness, interpersonal neurobiology, and developmental psychology. Doug was at IMI this week giving an IMI Masterclass on Presence-Based Leadership so we took the opportunity to catch up with him to ask him to distil just six words of wisdom from his broad experience working with individuals and organsiations.
We found he had a very clear and concise message for business.
