Coaching is one of the most effective methods of enhancing performance. It involves deliberate and specific activities that are designed to help people develop their skills by learning on the job. A good coach leads highly productive teams who are keen to learn new skills and as a result significantly increase the cost effectiveness and efficiency of their department/organisation.
Being able to recognize and implement the characteristics of a good coach will help you to accelerate the individualís progress by providing greater focus and create an awareness of possibilities. Coaches concentrate on where individuals are now and where they want to get to in the future. The coaching process depends on the person being coached taking responsibility for their actions and making their own decisions, not the coach providing the solution.
