What is coaching?
If you are not familiar with coaching, this quote usually helps to clarify how coaches differ from other types of support:
“Managing is making sure people do what they know how to do.
Training is teaching people to do what they don’t know how to do.
Mentoring is showing people how the people who are really good at doing something do it.
Coaching is none of these – it is helping to identify the skills and capabilities that are within the person, and enabling them to use them to the best of their ability.”
