Coaching in the workplace must engage three sides of personal development in order to effectively address behavior and create meaningful and lasting change: the personality, the emotions, and culture.
Each of these three facets plays an inter-related part in forming our behavior and habits in the workplace. Change will involve all three areas, too. In Learning That Sticks, part 1, we describe how changes in workplace behavior are a good measure of the effectiveness of coaching.
When we coach or facilitate workshops, we are constantly thinking about these three important areas of personal and team development, and how they inform our facilitation and communication.
