Many believe they are great at coaching however too often, managers aren't, instead they are providing step by step instructions on how to do a job, and in some circumstances, they do the job for the employees.
Coaching is key to an effective performance management program. Without this development aspect, employees will fail to realize their true potential. Not only will the company suffer, but so will the employee and the manager. Understanding the do's and don'ts of coaching is key to becoming a successful coach.
