We have moved past what my mentor Dr. Stephen Convey calls the “knowledge worker age” and into what I call the “Coaching Revolution.” The Coaching Revolution is driven by the belief that either you are a coach, you have a coach or you don’t want to be coached. If you don’t want to be coached, then be prepared to be left behind.
So what is the difference between coaching and consulting? Based on my perspective and background, coaches do more than ask clients questions and let them figure out the answers on their own. As a former championship high school basketball coach, I have learned great coaches do three things very well: They make us have conversations we don’t want to have, do things that we don’t want to do and become something we didn’t think we could become.
