Leader as a coach
Flat hierarchies and decentralized decision-making structures place high demands on the competencies and responsibilities of all employees.
Acting as a coach, executives address the central requirement of an agile leadership: they see themselves as a service provider for their employees. Important is leadership at eye level with the goal of allowing employees to act and decide in a self-organized and responsible manner. In the role of a coach, managers concentrate on the resources of their team. They help them to help themselves and offer guidance without taking their responsibility off them or pursuing personal interests.
Coaching rarely succeeds intuitively for managers: in addition to personal competencies, communication skills and methodical expertise, the ability to master and reconcile the different roles of supervisor and coach is required.
