What is a management coach?

A person skilled in listening, asking questions, being a thinking partner, holding up a mirror to blind spots, and helping you to build your capacity as a manager. She works with you to prioritize your time, clarify your goals and the goals of your staff  in order to implement your work in alignment with the overall purpose of the organization. A coach helps you identify and work through self-imposed limitations so that you can step into the best version of yourself. Coaching focuses on helping you build the capacity of your employees by not doing their work for them and by learning to ask good questions instead of the more common route of just telling people what to do. Management Coaching is designed for managers slammed with ‘too much’ who need to block out focused, one-on-one time working through pressing management issues with someone they can confide in and trust.

Every manager can be re-energized and benefit from one-on-one time spent with a person who fully supports their management evolution
