While we often hear wages are the largest expense for a firm, what we don’t hear enough about is how investing in employee success can save money. In our increasingly globalized world it can be difficult to effect the kind of change you want to see in your organization. Moreover, with the increasingly multicultural teams we find even here in Japan, it can be difficult to lead a multicultural team successfully and cohesively. In a poll by Gallup, as much as “67% of employees say they are sometimes or often or always burnout out by work”. This means it’s quite likely some of your employees fall into this category, and you could be losing out on productivity. Especially in times like these where employees look to management for answers, you want the security and peace of mind to know you’re taking your employees in the right direction. In situations like these, it’s time to embrace new solutions.
Google conducted an extensive management study that helped identify the secret formula to being an effective manager. After analysis of expansive data, Google concluded that the top one important trait of an effective manager is that he/she “is a good coach”. Why is it important for managers to be a good coach? Coaching is a viable support for evolving and expanding human potential, and it empowers individuals to attain their greatest potential from their own desire and volition. Research by McKinsey says, “when employees find greater intrinsic motivation, they are 32% more committed to their work and 46% more satisfied with their jobs”. When managers are transformed into great coaches, there is significant impact in the workplace.
Take a look to the right to see a list of the most valuable benefits as reported by the ICF (International Coaching Federation) from an introduction of coaching to an organization. Participants reported back on how they had felt they improved after receiving professional coaching. More than 50% of participants who have been successfully coached reported improvements to their business management, time management, and team effectiveness. Moreover of those same participants, an incredible 70 percent reported improvements in their work performance, and a whopping 62% saw an improvement in their workplace opportunities from coaching. And not only does coaching show improvements in the workplace, but in your personal life as well. Simply take a look at the second graph below which highlights improvements to personal life such as increased self confidence, better work life balance and improvements to wellness. Circling back to the beginning, if your employees are part of the 67% experiencing burnout, coaching may be just the change you need.
More than simply seeing a change in personal results, we see a change in the numbers as well. One participant, after six months of incorporating coaching techniques, reported a 60% decrease in overtime, saving the company money and freeing employees up to live more vivid and fulfilling lives. One Hong Kong CEO said that after one year of implementing coaching skills they had increased their profits 2.5 times and decreased their turnover rate from 12% to just 2.5%. Not only did they increase their revenue and grow their business, but staff turnover was reduced, thus the overall quality of the workplace environment likely increased as well. According to the ICF Global Coaching Client Study, ROI for companies investing in coaching was 7 times the initial investment with over a quart of companies reporting an ROI of 10 to 49 times.
