Today, coaching is considered a critical leadership and management competency. In applying for a management role, it is highly likely that you will be asked to share an example of a time when you successfully coached someone and when you secure the role, coaching your team will be an expectation and possibly a KPI (key performance indicator).
When you are a people manager, coaching needs to become a natural characteristic within you and the good news is, it can be learned. Most managers understand the value of coaching, but often find it challenging to implement due to time constraints.
Coaching can be incorporated into your management style.
