may be defined as helping someone individually to learn better work
skills and strategies, to “retool” an attitude, or to inspire
greater participation. Coaching
is done in a variety of ways: A coach may act as a counselor, a
sensitive listener, a modeler of behavior, a trainer, or a confronter.
Jim Earley identifies five primary attitudes that all good coaches
They care about the people who they work with,
The strongly believe that individuals can learn to do better,
They realize that mistakes are part of learning,
They give freely of their expertise and experience,
They remain upbeat and optimistic even when the learning is difficult.
