Do you want to support people at all levels to grow professionally so they can have a powerful impact on their teams and the organisation? Do you believe creating a culture of trust, open-hearted conversation and courageous leadership will empower organisations to perform better and make a bigger impact?
More and more organizations in the Middle East region and around the world are recognizing the value of building a coaching culture to ensure they stay ahead in a global, competitive market place.
Empower World spoke with Mohamed Eraky, Workplace Coach ILM, NLP Practitioner, Human Centre & Design Thinking Expert. He shares his experience on introducing a coaching culture into a large organisation in Doha.
Mohamed shares how teaching senior leaders about the power of coaching and supporting them to experience what it can do for them is essential when developing a coaching culture.
Mohamed says “Leadership is not about telling people what to do, it’s about empowering others by asking questions and supporting people to discover the ‘how’ by themselves…. ask them how can they inspire themselves and in turn how can they inspire others”.

The pursuit of mastery is never ending- being open and flexible to redesigning ideas and implementation will ensure the continued grow and success of the people and the organisation.
