Despite executive coaching's high profile, few managers coach well or even at all. Many equate coaching with giving advice and little else. Coaching involves much more than just talking to people; it requires posing intelligent questions that inspire your employees to talk about their thoughts, their work and their concerns. Managers can use a proactive questioning process to learn what's going on with their employees (or family members, for that matter) and help them upgrade their skills, reach their own solutions and understand their own actions. Michael Bungay Stanier, the first person honored as Coach of the Year in Canada, uses the construct of seven essential coaching questions to teach managers how to coach effectively. getAbstract recommends his manual to all managers, aspiring business coaches and any practitioners who might welcome a refresher.
