CHOOS­ING THE RIGHT IN­TER­NAL COACHES

New Straits Times - - Klassifieds -

Q:We plan to build a team of in­ter­nal coaches within our man­age­rial team to speed up the growth of the younger ex­ec­u­tives in­stead of leav­ing their devel­op­ment to their line man­agers. We are wor­ried that if we do an “open in­vi­ta­tion” to get those in­ter­ested to re­spond, this may end up with the wrong ones ap­ply­ing for it. I am, there­fore, think­ing of scout­ing around for the right ones and ex­tend­ing an “ex­clu­sive in­vi­ta­tion” to them. What do you think of this method, and what should be the cri­te­ria to get good in­ter­nal coaches? - Coach Cham­pion

A:This in­deed is a big step for­ward for your or­gan­i­sa­tion in be­liev­ing that coach­ing can be pow­er­ful in de­vel­op­ing your peo­ple. It is a good idea to make the se­lec­tion of in­ter­nal coaches an ex­clu­sive af­fair as it would at­tract qual­ity ones to join. How­ever, you need to be mind­ful that want­ing to be one is not enough, as be­ing ca­pa­ble of play­ing this role is equally cru­cial.
