Steve, a good snappy view of coaching and your third point is essential. No one mechanism has a monopoly on success and that certainly includes coaching. An additional point: if coaching (or any other intervention) might work now it may not necessarily work in the future. Always make sure to revisit your list with brutal honesty.

Hello, Aohanian

Pleased to read your take on #3. This relates to the old saying, "If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail."
Learning takes place in many ways; coaching is just one. At the same time, effective coaches should be able to diagnose other learning options as part of their client engagement. There have been more than just a few times when I've had to look at a client and say, "the right thing to do is attend an executive finance workshop at a major business school as well as getting specific coaching on (drumroll) your wardrobe, if you want to be an executive at this company." That meant that some of the money allocated to me would be reallocated.

However: I have never lost the long-term business as a result of stepping aside for the short run and having them do the right thing.

Thanks again, Aohanian
