Coaching is an essential skill these days. We need people in command to be more of a coach than simply being a manager or leader. Even as a parent or family member or as a friend you can be a coach. This book begins with author’s own story of how he got the opportunity to start one-to-one coaching.
Fundamentally, one could say, coaching is a simple process – you have to help someone move from point “A” to another point – it could “B” or “Z”! How to do this? The title of this book gives it away – WHAT GOT YOU HERE WON’T GET YOU THERE! Looked at this way, coaching is simply the process to identify WHAT IS NOT BEING DONE and then help GET THAT DONE!
