coaching works.


Coaching is a healthy and strategic conversational model that goes beyond the surface in order to tap into the strengths, creativity and commitment of an individual, allowing that person to aim higher and achieve more than ever thought possible. 


A coach spends more time listening and asking questions

while a manager spends more time speaking and giving directions.


A coach invests time in observing

while a manager makes quick assumptions.


A coach uncovers issues to get the root of a problem

while a manager takes the quickest route to deal with the surface symptoms.


A coach helps direct reports accept responsibility

while a manager assigns blame.


A coach supports employees in developing their plans

while a manager gives them the plan and tells them to follow it.


A coach is committed to long-term success

while a manager is concerned about immediate results.
