An executive coaching
initiative that is helping senior Barclays’ employees become more productive is
to be featured on the Money Programme on Monday evening.
David Ross, managing director
of executive coaching company Performance Unlimited, has been working with
Barclays for three years to address personal development needs and maximise
employee productivity. Ross’s latest task was to coach Paul Morrish, Barclays’
new savings and investments director. The focus of Morrish’s coaching was to help
him become more results driven in order to drive short-term business
performance, create and manage situations of conflict and develop a broader
variety of coaching styles.
The coaching sessions were all
recorded on camera for BBC2’s Money Programme to be shown on Wednesday 5 June
Morrish said: "The
coaching has definitely helped me achieve my objectives. I know that I am now
able to do far more in less time. I have had lots of positive feedback from my
colleagues since the coaching and they have noticed a difference in the way I
work, which is helping them become more productive too."
Ross commented: "When Paul
and I started the coaching sessions, he was more focused on relationships than results. The coaching helped him meet
his development needs which has had a positive impact for Barclays. Paul’s
improved clarity as a coach has made his team more productive as a whole which
in turn will have a positive effect on the business."
