Abstract:

While this article focuses on the PM as coach, there is also the trainer as coach. As PM, your coaching responsibilities are much greater and cover a much broader area. 1 Managers coach their people as a part of their job, although a training coach can come from another functional area. 2 Coaching takes place within the formal manager-employee or trainer-trainee relationship. 3 It usually occurs in the workplace or an environment designated for training. 4 The focus of coaching is to develop individuals within their current job-to increase specific skills, knowledge, or understanding they need to fulfill their duties. 5 Managers tend to initiate and drive the relationship this is true even in the trainer-trainee situation. 6 The coaching relationship may last a long time but it is finite, ending when an employee has learned what was being taught-though it can, of course, continue for new skills. 7 Managers have wider responsibilities as a coach than others.
