What's your focus on coaching and where does it start?
People do respond too coaching. When asked what kind of leader someone wants, very often they will say "someone who is a good coach." We like coaching. We benefit from gentle guidance and persistent insistence on improvement.
But where does it start? With goals? With targets? Does it start with charts and plans?
Coaching doesn't start with performance; it starts with a relationship of understanding.
As a coach, work on understanding first. As someone being coached, work on understanding first. Coaching starts with understanding.
