Rather than interjecting and solving the issues, a coaching manager would look to provide support, challenge, feedback and guidance.Managers can also use this skill for example during team meetings to enable the team to take responsibility for their activities.More than 70% of organisations with any formal leadership development activities use coaching as an important part of that (Zenger & Stinnett) .
Coaching raises awareness, and an awareness of balance is coming to the fore.

To summarise these definitions for the purpose of this report, mentoring is the passing of knowledge and a directional approach, coaching is the facilitation of learning and in doing so non-directional.
I hope that the reader will accept my condensed definitions for this purpose.
In this report I am going to investigate the topic of coaching in the workplace.
