Is learning to coach now an essential skill?

Even before the COVID-19 virus changed the way we work forever, there was a realisation that the old style of communication was becoming less effective, especially with Millennial staff and Post-Millennial students. Here’s what the Harvard Business Review study reported November 2019 in the article ‘The Leader as Coach’ by Herminia Ibarra and Anne Scoular, which is equally relevant to educators tasked with engaging, empowering and inspiring learners:

“As a manager, you knew what needed to be done, you taught others how to do it, and you evaluated their performance. Command and control was the name of the game, and your goal was to direct and develop employees who understood how the business worked and were able to reproduce its previous successes.

Not today. Rapid, constant, and disruptive change is now the norm, and what succeeded in the past is no longer a guide to what will succeed in the future. Twenty-first-century managers simply don’t (and can’t!) have all the right answers.

To cope with this new reality, companies are moving away from traditional command-and-control practices and toward something very different: a model in which managers give support and guidance rather than instructions, and employees learn how to adapt to constantly changing environments in ways that unleash fresh energy, innovation, and commitment. This is dramatic and fundamental. The role of the manager, in short, is becoming that of a coach“.
