How much of coaching your employees is guiding them, how much is teaching, and how much is asking the right questions and listening to the answers? As a coach, you have the opportunity to guide people to greater career growth, professional achievement and personal satisfaction while supporting the goals of your organization. Stepping into a role this important takes some preparation, background and, perhaps, even coaching itself.
