Coaching From the Inside: Developing Talent

Overview 
 
Executives around the globe are focused on developing new and existing talent. The value of providing coaching to managers has received a lot of attention over the past 10 years. But how can companies offer coaching without incurring the high cost of hiring executive coaches for every person who needs it? 
 
One area of coaching that shows great promise is the use of internal expert coaches who provide professional-level coaching to managers within their own organizations. This newer approach develops individuals within the organization who can be trained to provide a more formal approach to coaching. 
 
This short recorded presentation covers the following key topics:
  • A model for developing the “Coaching Manager Mindset”
  • Ways to coach people effectively using existing talent as coaches 
  • Suggestions on how to implement a coaching program given the existing culture of the organization
  • Benefits of developing an internal coaching capability 
​This recorded presentation provides a preview of a few of the topics covered in Babson Executive Education’s program Coaching Inside the Organization: The Certification Program for Internal Coaches​, beginning on August 3.
