Manager as Coach

Lack of recognition plays a significant role in this disengagement, leading to unhappiness and reduced productivity. When employees feel undervalued and disconnected from company goals, turnover rates can soar.

At BasilTree, we help organisations determine the unique parameters that define their culture and are vital to their employees being engaged. These become the basis for curated and customised surveys and other means to assess where the organisation currently is in its culture and engagement journey.

BasilTree’s approach towards leadership coaching focuses on “facilitating positive change through impacting leaders’ thinking”. We strive to bring about this mindset shift in our participants such that they go from measuring to enabling performance of individuals and teams.
