Building a coaching culture: the LEAD framework
Passmore, J. and Crabbe, K. (2023) Building a coaching culture: the Lead model. The Coaching Psychologist, 19 (2). ISSN 1748-1104 (In Press).
While much has been written about the importance of coaching cultures, the literature has focused on the benefits of building a coaching culture, with less attention paid to the practical details as on how individuals and organisations move from benefits and conceptual models to practical actions. In this paper we will explore the debate about the nature of a coaching culture, offer a definition for practitioners, explain its significance as part of a wider HR strategy, set out a framework, and provide a 12-step roadmap as a guideline for HR manager and OD change managers to help guide their implementation of a coaching culture.
