Is Your Coach Helping You or Wasting Your Time?

Some coaches follow a model of coaching that says you should not provide the answers to your coachees. You should help them find their own answers by asking them the right questions. This is complete crap.

Coach or therapist?

Executives hire coaches because of their expertise. Imagine me asking a CEO, “Well, what do you think you should do?” I’d be tossed out of his or her office in a nanosecond. If this is how your coach operates, then I’m not sure why you are paying this person a cent. You can hire my mother for free and she’ll do the same for you.
