Leader as Coach: Bringing Out the Best in Your Employees

Coaching is the investment in human capital that opens the door for individual and organizational performance improvement. It is an investment of time and care into the life of another individual that prepares them for the challenges that lie ahead. The challenge may be a project that needs completing, a new job that needs tackling, or the selection of a new career path.
