What Coaching Is

What coaching is in a coaching cultureYesterday, we began our discussion about creating a coaching culture by examining why companies are striving to do so in our post titled, 6 Reasons Companies are Creating a Coaching Culture.

  • A way of being with another individual that promotes reflection, self-discovery and openness to taking more effective actions
