Coaching is a vital component of any business that aims to be a winner in the new economy. However, unless coaches are clear in their own minds exactly what their function is, and why they are performing a coaching role, they may do more harm than good. Therefore, it is important to understand how coaching originated as a business tool, and the ways it impacted traditional managerial attitudes and behavior.
