The traditional workplace culture is rapidly becoming outdated. Technological advances, employee expectations, and new ways of working and collaborating amid the pandemic have all impacted how we see the workplace and what we expect from it. Companies that still follow the traditional approach are at a critical point and risk losing their employees to companies that adapt to the future.
The ‘Great Resignation’ trend, while not as apparent in India as in the US, is still affecting some companies. They are struggling to find and retain top talent, putting themselves at risk of falling behind competition and becoming irrelevant in the long run.
How can organisations future proof themselves against this trend? Start by adopting a coaching culture.
Leaders develop a coaching culture when they use coaching skills to facilitate daily conversations. Engaging in active listening, showing curiosity, asking questions that invite other perspectives and providing feedback objectively and without judgment are examples of these skills.
