The article explores misconceptions about coaching. One perception is that coaching is about development but the truth is it is about development and leadership. Another misunderstanding is that it is an activity that requires time. Instead, a coaching conversation only requires less than a minute. In order to provide effective coaching, there is a need to establish the natural capacity of those being coached to make them more productive, independent and responsible.
