Coaching, mentoring and the sibling organization

Coaching, mentoring and the sibling organization The sibling organization is a stage in the development of organizations following the uncertainty created by downsizing and restructuring. People feel the need to invest in self‐preservation, perhaps at the expense of collaborative effort, risk‐taking and shared learning. Organizational defensive routines limit growth and creativity. Morale is depressed, job satisfaction is reduced and performance goes down. To counter this post‐change depressive effect, a new contract of mutual investment and respect needs to be created between the employee and the organization. A coaching style of management combined with independent mentoring support can provide the vehicle for a climate of two‐stranded development where both the needs of the individual and the needs of the organization are aligned. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Industrial and Commercial Training Emerald Publishing

Abstract

The sibling organization is a stage in the development of organizations following the uncertainty created by downsizing and restructuring. People feel the need to invest in self‐preservation, perhaps at the expense of collaborative effort, risk‐taking and shared learning. Organizational defensive routines limit growth and creativity. Morale is depressed, job satisfaction is reduced and performance goes down. To counter this post‐change depressive effect, a new contract of mutual investment and respect needs to be created between the employee and the organization. A coaching style of management combined with independent mentoring support can provide the vehicle for a climate of two‐stranded development where both the needs of the individual and the needs of the organization are aligned.
