Module V – Coaching Versus Managing

Module V – Coaching Versus Managing

In this module we examined the differences between coaching and managing, explored some of the challenges that often makes it easier to manage as opposed to coaching.  We explored the need to help organizations make the shift from managing to coaching in their quest to develop self-correcting, and self -generating employees who are positively engaged.  We also explored the various limitations to employing coaching in the organizations and practiced some innovative and creative opportunities and vehicles for coaching such as “coaching up”, integrity and planning.
