Inside this Book – The Concise Oxford Dictionary defines the verb to coach as to ‘tutor, train, give hints to, prime with facts’. This does not help us much, for those things can be done in many ways, some of which bear no relationship to coaching. Coaching is as much about the way these things are done as about what is done. Coaching delivers results in large measure because of the supportive relationship between the coach and the coachee, and the means and style of communication used. The coachee does acquire the facts, not from the coach but from within himself, stimulated by the coach. Of course, the objective of improving performance is paramount, but how that is best achieved is what is in question.
Inside this book –Coaching for Performance PDF Book by John Whitmore – Here lies a paradox, because the manager traditionally holds the pay check, the key to promotion, and also the ax. This is fine so long as you believe the only way to motivate is through the judicious application of the carrot and the stick. However, for coaching to work at its best the relationship between the coach and the coachee must be one of partnership in the endeavor, of trust, of safety and of minimal pressure. The check, the key and the ax have no place here, as they can serve only to inhibit that relationship. Can a manager, therefore, be a coach at all? Yes, but coaching demands the highest qualities of that manager: empathy, integrity and detachment, as well as a willingness, in most cases, to adopt a fundamentally different approach to his staff. He will also have to find his own way, for there are few role models for him to follow, and he may even have to cope with initial resistance from some of his staff, suspicious of any departure from traditional management.
