Coaching is popular. Meanwhile there is a broad variety of approaches that are supposed to help in a business context — from systemic to solution focused to agile. More and more people see themselves as professional helpers who have a lot of expertise to offer.
The problem is that most coaches focus primarily on individuals and teams. Applying the Flight Levels Model calls for organisational support though. For helping the whole enterprise effectively we need at least three capabilities. 1. a systemic understanding of coaching that can cope with different levels of complexity 2. social skills to foster open communication and trustful relationships. 3. a set of tools and techniques to drive change.e.
- You want to build your Flight Levels Coaching on a solid concept of professional help
