Using Business Coaching to Uncover Hidden Talents

Business Coaching Identifies Needs

In articles such as Understanding Employee Needs and Meeting Them and Business Coaching and Matching Various Needs we have already seen how business coaching can play a valuable part in not only finding out what employees and managers need and expect from each other in the workplace, but also how the two different sides can work together to come up with action plans which aim to help fulfil these needs more than is currently taking place.


A Manager Can Learn Much More About Their Employees in These Coaching Sessions

But business coaching can also have another additional benefit. During the course of the regular but largely informal discussions that make up business coaching sessions, a manager will often find out more information about their employees than they would ever do if the only time they saw them was when there was a problem or issue to sort out. It can allow the manager to find out interests or abilities which the person has outside of work that could be utilised at work.


Using Business Coaching to Uncover Unknown Skills and Talents

A classic example is a manager who discovers that one of their employees teaches a class or coaches a group in their spare time. This probably means that they have many of the skills required to be an effective trainer and actually get a sense of enjoyment from teaching others. With more training they would probably be able to become an effective trainer teaching others within an organisation such as becoming a health and safety trainer for instance. Not only will it be easier for the business to utilise the existing skills of a current employee instead of finding and taking on an additional person, but it is also likely to increase the happiness of the employee if they are able to do and get paid for something at work which they enjoy doing in their free time!
