Richard Platt's curator insight, June 14, 1:02 AM

While all leaders in this model exert influence, their methods and focuses are largely different.  The levels are: 

  • Direct leaders use face-to-face continuous contact with those under their command.  Direct leaders are typically experts in the domains of knowledge and skill that their team uses. The “orders” they give are specific, their time frame focus is short, and because their span of control is smaller, the consequences of their actions are relatively contained. Often at this level of leadership, following a consistent process and strict adherence to “rules” is desired.
  • Organizational—organizational leaders influence a team of sub-teams, without direct contact with the majority of their down-line employees.Strategic—strategic leaders must influence a team of organizations, often geographically dispersed, with little direct contact with most team members.  The organizational leaders must bridge the gap between direct and strategic. Their focus is on medium-term outcomes, and they should operationalize the strategy (i.e., develop the plans and allocate resources) and focus on process and innovation.
  • On the other end of the spectrum, strategic leaders are focused, understanding the context of the current environment, evaluating the long-term impact of choices and setting the strategic direction of the entire organization. More potent than giving direct orders, leaders at this level need to focus on collaboration and alignment for unity of mission.

Five Steps to Integrating Coaching into your Talent Management Strategy

Five Steps to Integrating Coaching into your Talent Management Strategy | The Daily Leadership Scoop | Scoop.it

Now more than ever, there is a great opportunity to bring coaching into organizations. According to Gallup’s study on the global workplace, only 13% of employees worldwide are engaged at work or are psychologically committed to their jobs and likely to be making positive contributions to their organizations. Therefore, 63% are "not engaged." If this is the case, then why not integrate coaching into your talent management strategy, not only to increase employee engagement, but to achieve other talent development goals such as developing certain competencies like problem-solving, strategic thinking or filling your talent pipeline with ready-now talent for upward or lateral assignments?

In order to integrate coaching into your talent management strategy, Renee Robertson recommends the following five steps should be taken.

Good sense in this piece about how to make coaching a way of life - remember, it's a philosophy before it's a technique!
