As the craft of coaching becomes more accepted as a development tool for all employees, the HR professional can broaden their understanding of coaching to take advantage of this exciting opportunity to influence the next evolution of their organization's management potential.

Many HR professionals think coaching is just another name for what they have been doing for years - helping managers and executives increase their ability around working with people to ensure the organization runs smoothly and effectively. Focus is typically organizational and may include providing individual feedback, direction, advice, guidelines, etc. 

HR Coaching, as it has evolved, has the HR professional partnering with the leader and focusing specifically on his/her individual development. Organizations often hire outside coaches to fulfill this need. Typically the focus is on partnering with the individual to determine their desired outcomes; then assisting them in setting goals, asking questions, growing their skills at their pace, sharing knowledge, and etc.

  3. Why developing your own skills is key
