Coaching, not an easy business


It never occurred to me that coaching is actually challenging and tough at the same time.
When coaching is all about "not giving answer" and all I want to do is panning out options to coachee.

Understanding and helping someone is so much different than implanting seed so that they can think for themselves, because everyone knows the answer to their problem. The tricky part is how to make them draw it out on their own, and imposing on someone else's problem does not make it easier to solve.

Sometimes it is not about experiences, some problems only requird simple solution.
Sometimes the more we know, the less likely we find the answer.

Well, I just came across this thing......

 simple answer

...Coaching is a very good and necessary practice for leader/manager in order to manage the entire business without having to go into detail of every single thing that runs the organisation.

It is best to empower people and enable them think on their own. Just like Paul said, manager's job is not fixing everyone's problem, let them come to you with a solution.

I believe people will be proud if they think they own the answer, the solution, and that'll motivate them to higher performance level.
