Through coaching, the project managers can develop these important soft skills in real time, while managing the project.
- Companies that adopted a coaching approach, report significant improvements in productivity, increased communication, faster goal achievement with less effort and reduced staff turnover.
- Coaching is a partnership focused on the client’s success. The coach will ask questions to empower the client to arrive at the best solution. In contrast to the coach, a consultant provides a specific solution and goes away…. while the coach will ensure that the client develops the capability so that they think and solve the problems on their own. A coach does not have to be an expert in the field coached.
- Mentoring is similar to coaching, but the Mentor is an expert in the field and will transfer his expertise to the client.
