The definition of coaching, in a business context, has the two following aspects:

  • Coaching is an approach to management — how one carries out the role of being a manager.
  • Coaching is a set of skills for managing employee performance to deliver results.

As a coach, you develop and possess various skills and efforts that are aimed at guiding employees to achieve high productivity and positive results.

The more you manage as a coach, the easier you’ll find coaching as a manager because you’ll be putting those skills into practice.
