EcoCoach coaching and its types – how do they differ?

EcoCoach coaching and its types – how do they differ?

Recently, interest in personal and professional development has been growing intensively in Poland, and motivational speakers are gaining particular popularity. The profession of a coach is still new in Poland and evokes various emotions among others because it is not yet legally regulated. Nevertheless, more and more people are deciding to use it, or think of it as a new, interesting career path. There are many good comparisons and definitions for coaching. In English, “coach” simply means “trainer”, although it does not fully reflect its definition. More often, coaching is divided into two types – business coaching and life coaching, due to the goals that can be achieved. At ecoCoach, we specialize in two types of coaching, namely: business coaching and executive coaching. So what makes each of them different?

12 steps of transformation from EGO- to ECO-team

12 steps of transformation from EGO- to ECO-team

The way humans are organized is constantly evolving. Looking at reality from the perspective of a hierarchy is no longer the optimal and most effective model of relating to reality. More and more companies (eg Wikipedia, Spotify, BlaBlaCar) rely on the assumption that each participant in the network or service is equally important and can play the role of both user and creator. The same applies to modern turquoise management companies, where the hierarchy and divisions into “top” and “bottom” cease to exist. However, not everyone is ready to function in the company without a boss and abandon the hierarchical pyramid. We cannot enter the Turquoise World on the basis of “I pay, I take, I don’t care about the rest”, but rather with the approach “I’m responsible, I make decisions, I co-create the organization”. Traditional companies have traditional organizational structures and usually show less spectacular results. Modern companies are modern management methods and usually above-average results.

Trust and transparency

Trust and transparency

I first came across the name “turquoise organizations” exactly a year ago, after being suggested to me twice by two different people to read Frédéric Laloux’s book, in two different places and at different times. While reading the book, while still the president of the management board of igus in Poland, I had a kind of enchantment because the practices that I was doing with my team in Poland at that time were similar to what Frédéric Laloux describes.

Tired of constantly implementing LEAN? Switch to turquoise

Tired of constantly implementing LEAN? Switch to turquoise

Hardly anyone remembers now that the origins of the modern method of management in factories – Lean Management and Lean Manufacturing – can be traced to William Edwards Deming’s departure to Japan in 1947 and his lectures for Japanese engineers in the 1950s. Is LEAN still the most modern management method? Has technological progress, globalization, universal access to knowledge, social media and companies based on the collaborative economy not mean that LEAN management methods are a bit of a mouse? For some, NO, because they still defend the good old hierarchical structures, long-term LEAN implementations and the CEO out of necessity taking GEMBA walks. For some, YES, because they notice how quickly the group of turquoise companies is expanding, relying on flexible structures, self-organization, employee involvement and the company’s 100% based on a human being with his fullness.

Haven’t you ever thought about throwing this whole LEAN implementation away? To throw away is a constant explanation to new employees that when you say 5S, you do not mean your smartphone model, that when you mention that you are going to do GEMBA, you do not say anything about your face and when you notice MUDA it is not related to boredom at work . Do not worry. You weren’t the only one who had such doubts.

Corporate Solar System – Turquoise Organizational Structure

Corporate Solar System – Turquoise Organizational Structure

Will we function in completely new types of organizations in five years? In companies where employees are independent, they do not require a supervisor and the structures are far from the traditional hierarchy?

Heraclitus of Ephesus (4th century BC) said, “The only thing that is constant in life is change.” Nowadays, thanks to enormous technological progress and wide access to knowledge, this change is no longer permanent. The changes accelerate much faster than before and are no longer linear, but exponential. The intensive development of our civilization in recent years is largely due to very fast computerization and computerization.
