When it comes to leadership development, are you a manager or a coach? It is much easier to be a manager, but if you are looking to develop the talent of your team, you must be a coach.
Coaching is not about having the answer. It is a mindset of helping others find the answer! Coaching is different than managing:
- Management is facilitating people, product and process. Managing is mapping and directing.
- Coaching is optimizing the potential of people.
Coaches are “shiner” finders. They are people potential junkies. They know that if a person has the right mindset, then learning new skills and processes will be easy. They inspire people to explore their internal motivation. They help tie a person’s work to their own values and higher purpose.
Coaching requires patience, time, preparation and commitment to the person you are coaching. Coaching is a gift we give and when we are being coached, it is a gift we must be open to receiving. Your success reflects your effort and commitment to developing your people.
