Coaching is more than a skill or a technique for individual and team development. Embedded in the process of ongoing communication and relationship building, coaching delivers practical, common sense approaches to developing people and services, and is a powerful way to unlock potential and create high performance. Most importantly it places people at the top of the agenda, in action not just in word, and is an essential leadership style of the high-performing company culture of the future.
