More speed, more complexity, more inter-dependency – the world around our organisations is changing in radical and unprecedented ways. Organisations are looking for ways to build up their capabilities to meet the challenges of globalisation, digitalisation, and scalability. – What can coaching offer here? Individual coaching has always its place, but it does not necessarily reach out wide enough. We also do more and more team coaching and its impact can be quite big. But to really be able to tackle the challenges ahead we need an organisational approach to coaching, we need Organisational Coaching (OC). This means that we need to be prepared for building coaching interventions on a larger systemic scale. OC is coaching focused on the whole organisation. Partnering with the client means here partnering with the change needs and ambitions of the whole organisation.
