ATD's Best On Coaching
Coaching is widely misunderstood, often mistakenly equated with mentoring. There are thousands of books, articles, and courses offering suggestions about the best ways to coach people, filled with forms, assessments, step-by-step programs, surveys, and feedback processes. These are all valuable resources, but the key to coaching is understanding that the focus is on helping people develop expertise and confidence as a facilitator. This publication is for talent development professionals who manage the learning function, internal coaches and consultants, subject matter experts, and individuals interested in establishing a coaching culture in their organization.
