Coaching to get results!
Can you remember the TV programme ‘Beverly Hillbillies’? Well, there is a great story from American guru, Zig Ziglar. Apparently at the turn of the last century a Texan farmer had to put his land up for sale because he was struggling to make a living. An oil company approached him and offered him a royalty on every barrel if they could drill on his land. The farmer had nothing to lose and the drilling started. Zig goes onto say a gusher came out and it made the farmer an instant millionaire. Or did it? Zig has this terrific way of making you think. Could it have been the farmer was a millionaire before they struck black gold? He was sitting on an untapped fortune. He just didn’t know it!
Applying the same principle to people...maybe we already have all the resources we need? What potential riches and strengths are we sitting on that are just waiting to be tapped into? And it’s not just about you! What about the potential of the people in your workplace?
Coaching is all about tapping into reserves we already have. Employee engagement is a hot topic in forward thinking organisations and this is how you can increase it in yours.
