Happy International Coach Week to you all!
The theme for ICW which runs from 16 May – 22 May 2022 is Reimagine the Future and it gives us all a chance to celebrate and reflect on coaching today and into the future.
This year Open Door is celebrating with a very special collaboration featuring Natalie and CEO of Proxima Strategy Anita Green, joining us from Abu Dhabi to present:
Organizations Reimagined: transforming the future with coaching

Exploring key questions around coaching in organisations
As we reflect on coaching today and into the future, we can think about:
- Why is coaching important to our futures?
- How can an organisation design and implement a coaching culture?
- Key lessons on the implementation and outcomes of organisational coaching.
Each of these themes is explored on the webinar. You can watch it here or listen to the podcast. We also feature the Coaching Culture Framework from our Diploma of Organisational Coaching (10835NAT).
Why is a culture of coaching important to our futures?
A culture of coaching is important to our futures because:
- We need to bring out the best in people and to empower high performance
- In addition, we want people to take responsibility – because we can’t do it all ourselves
- Furthermore, people don’t like being told what do to all the time – they want agency and autonomy over their roles and responsibilities
- Not only that, we need our people to be innovative and to speak up
- We want happy, productive workplaces
- It’s great being a part of a high performing organisation
- Finally, we want people getting out of bed and loving what they are doing
Coaching enables all of these things that are important; and more.
Open Door’s Coaching Culture Framework
The implementation of a culture of coaching needs a structure and a plan. As featured in our Diploma of Organisational Coaching (10835NAT). Open Door’s Coaching Culture Framework is used as the basis of implementation. Importantly, as Anita discusses as the key framework that underpins the rollout of coaching at Air Force.
Other important lessons shared:
Anita takes the time to detail other lessons. Those that are critical to the implementation of coaching including:
- Importantly, the link that coaching has to the organisation’s values and vision
- In addition, the identification of champions who will advocate and role model coaching
- Furthermore, setting up centres of excellence
- And a balance between structure and the need for coaching to evolve organically
Every week our team of experts present “Coaching Cafe” webinar with topics for Managers, Leaders, Business Owners, and everyone who wants to be a better workplace coach, leading their teams to higher productivity, better outcomes and a happier, healthier workplace.
