After a number of years working in the coaching industry it was clear to Tim that one to one coaching and coach training did a great job at developing individuals however did not often bring about organisational change. This raised the question, how do organisations develop a coaching culture, particularly if they have a number of remote, possible global, locations. This also raised the issue of the cultural dynamics across an organisations population and how coaching needs to meet this difference to deliver a consistent outcome.
With this in mind Tim teamed up with Stuart Haden, author of “It’s not about the coach” to create the Embark coaching culture diagnostic tool. The only tool in the world that allows organisations to create, assess and develop their coaching culture over a set period. The Embark diagnostic divides coaching cultures in 9 manageable dimensions giving both a strategic and operation framework to deliver bespoke coaching culture solutions to organisations of any size.
