The essence of coaching is helping leaders to understand their own style, identify their dilemmas, look carefully at their relationships, and then to transfer their insights and learning into results for their organisation. This accelerates their ‘arrival’. It is always customised and yet the stages are generic. The coaching is based on a collaborative relationship with the client, their boss, the HR manager and the coach. The coach uses a wide variety of behavioural techniques and methods to help the client achieve the goals they identify together. I believe the most important thing the coach does is to listen ‘to’ the client, providing a non-judgemental atmosphere in which to learn at a deep level.
