Coaching Is About Teaching The Executives To Do Things

Most executives enroll for a coaching session believing that

they will be taught about the right ways to do things.

However, the primary objective of coaching is to help these

professionals find the most appropriate solutions to the

It is important for the executives to understand that coaching

is different from training and focuses more on helping the
