Effective one-on-one coaching is a critical task for leaders at all levels. It is clearly one of the best methods to develop your people. Effective coaching inspires in others an internal drive to act ethically, without direction, to achieve goals. Effective coaching drives performance builds competence and confidence, and ultimately enhances trusting relationships. The best coaches help people find ways to make things happen as opposed to creating excuses why they can’t.
