Coaching Leaders : Chapter 6

Coaching is a partnership between a leader and an individual who reports directly to him in which the coach focuses on helping the direct report optimize his or her potential. Coaching activity is non-judgmental and involves teaching.

This process aims at helping people build abilities, knowledge, and skills. An effective coach knows what questions to ask while evaluating a situation, or assessing problem behaviors, or calibrating his own coaching capabilities.

Coaching can be classified into two types: performance management coaching, and performance enhancement coaching. Coaching ensures the personal development of the workforce while creating a positive emotional environment.

It usually brings about better results, because emotionally positively charged people certainly strive to accomplish the tasks expected of them. Often the behavioral characteristics required to be a successful coach and a successful executive are not the same.

Hence an executive coaching somebody might need changes in his/her own behavior along with changes in the behavior of the person being coached. Coaches with a long-term outlook, who are concerned with saving valuable resources for their organizations, are found to be more effective than coaches who expect immediate benefits from their coaching. Those who take a long-term view do not get bogged down by personality conflicts.
