I am writing this on the SQ flight leaving Chennai. I just attended a 4-day Strengths-finder coaching class in Chennai last week. This marks the start of my journey of professional coaching. I am not sure how good I will be or whether it will become one of my professional pursuits. But learning this new skill is exciting. More importantly, I am amazed the similarity between coaching and consultative selling or facilitation. The required mindset is similar. In short, it is largely about ‘Ask, Not Tell’ Coaching is about empowerment. A good coach should avoid telling his / her thought. More importantly, it is about helping the coachees finding their own ‘solutions’.
Well, with this blog also named the same, well, how could I resist to know more about coaching!!
