Coaching is not the same as mentoring, training or managing.
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.
In sports, coaches encourage and enhance the talents and skills of individual athletes to contribute to a winning team effort. At the same time, the coach’s skills and talents are elevated to take on new, exciting challenges. It’s no different in business.
Becoming a good coach has both personal and professional rewards. A good coach can empower others to be more productive, achieve individual goals, and contribute to the company’s vision. At the same time, an employee with good coaching skills is also on a journey of self-development; thus, they are usually more productive and effective, better able to work with peers toward common goals and thus more promotable.
