Coaching is an essential part of being a manager and leader. Coaching skills can be applied to a variety of situations. Common coaching situations involve the big picture view of identifying a general path, or a more detailed view of improving performance in specific areas. In all situations, coaching is about tapping into a potential that would otherwise be idle, and using it for the benefit of the employee and the company.
