Creelman Research Supports Coaching Ourselves
I’ve long been a fan of Henry Mintzberg and even in the early days it was clear to me he had something special with CoachingOurselves. I have authored a number of CoachingOurselves sessions and also help companies get started using this technique.
What is It?
CoachingOurselves uses semi-structured meetings to give managers a chance to reflect, learn some relevant management concepts and keep their department on track. Once managers get the hang of this approach they don't need a facilitator; this keeps costs down.
Every organization applies the technique in its own way. Some use it as a better way to develop managers; others as a way to support change during a merger; and some individual managers use it just to improve the productivity of their own team.
Gary Hamel points out that there have been few innovations in management. I think this one is worth knowing about. You should see it in action. Please email me or call +1.647.215.6095 and I can help you get a sense of what this technique can do.
