Leaders who Coach (And Are Coached)
If you're trying to launch a coaching culture in your organization, every leader has to both be coached and be coaching someone else. This is the only way for a coaching culture to take deep root.
A working example of this comes from Bishop Mike Rinehart of the Texas-Louisiana Gulf Coast Synod of the ELCA. During a recent exchange in a stream of Facebook comments, Bishop Rinehart laid out his leadership philosophy:
Did you see the simple questions that started this exchange? Who are you coaching? Who is coaching you? This simple mindset starts you on the way toward a culture that draws the best out of the people who are connected.
As you seek to launch a coaching culture, how are you building coaching skills that leaders can pass on? What transferable coaching skills are you pouring into the leaders around you? How will you know it's working?
Leaders who commit to coaching and being coached consistently draw the best out of themselves and the people around them.
This is how a multiplication movement of leaders is born in your church or organization!
