“Coaching as a tool

for staff development

and organisational growth”



HRD practitioners should be provided with specialised ‘coaching’ skills to objectively and positively guide and assist managers-

• in identifying their shortfalls in respect of CMC competencies;

• locating appropriate solutions;

• determining the personal, team, departmental and stakeholder outcomes and benefits; and

• creating a receptive and conducive environment for the effective and enduring transfer of the new skills and knowledge.



The distinction between Coaching and Mentoring is seldom made within the Public Sector, and thus expectations and effort, to capacitate in this regard may often diverge. SAMDI’s modules to cater for the CMC, People Management and Empowerment, are a case in point, as it only provides a Mentorship training portfolio, when Coaching capability is the more pressing and impactful. Separate modules are required for Coaching and Mentoring.


Types of change interventions







training teaching

bringing a person to an acceptable level of proficiency by practice and/or instruction.

passing on of information, skills and knowledge

helps to develop cognitive skills and capabilities

counseling therapy

Counselling - repairing a person broken by past hurts, experiences.

Therapy deals with psychological issues such as phobias, trauma or obsession etc.

consulting advising
Consulting/ Advising

It is the process by which an expert in a specialised field analyzes, diagnoses and suggests solutions to the problem.

Depending on the terms of reference consultants can fix problems ‘for’ or ‘on behalf of’ the client or present the client with different options for the client to choose.


Mentoring is about passing on experience and knowledge by the one who has more experience, knowledge, insight, tricks of the trade etc to a protégé. Mentoring originates from the Greek mythology about Odysseus who entrusted his home and the education of his son to Mentor. With regards to his son, Odysseus is said to have instructed Mentor to ‘Tell him all you know’.

Mentor offers guidance while the mentee actively executes the suggestions and advises of the mentor. One feature of mentoring is a one-to-one relationship between a mature mentor and a young mentee, established to help the young person to achieve his or her goals.


Coaching is non directive facilitation art.

A coach –

sets specific goals and objectives,

sees what you need to do to achieve them,

works with you on target setting, professional and personal development, expansion of your skills base, and

offers practical and relevant advice and guidance.

We believe our coach-mentor solution is the key to unlock the potential of government in South AfricaWe do not think the solutions to the challenges facing government are simplistic – however, we do believe that coach-mentoring is a vital missing piece of the puzzle. Why? Because coaching is in essence the most powerful ingredient of effective leadership, and without effective leadership, we are not going to make the South-African miracle a reality.
