The idea of the leader as a coach is not new. The athletic coach is commonly used in literature on leadership and management. Coaching is not just telling people what to do; it also involves helping them to achieve their fullest potential. Successful coaches have to assume a variety of roles such as leader, listener, teacher, monitor, problem solver, supporter, tutor and challenger.
As a leader you must view coaching from two different viewpoints:
One proven approach is the GROW model. GROW is an acronym standing for:
A useful metaphor for the GROW model is the plan you might make for an important journey. First, you start with the map: With this, you help your team member decide where they are going (their Goal) and establish where they currently are (their Current Reality).

Priority management has always been referred to as time management, well the myth is there is only so much time, we cannot add minutes to an hour, hours onto a day or days to a week, weeks to a month, or months to a year.

From the time we enter school we are asked, “What are you going to be when you grow up?” Or whenever you meet someone new, chances are one of the first questions both ask is, “What do you do?” We spend more than half of our waking hours at work, so our jobs actually become our identities. The question becomes why not enjoy the work that you do? Instead of defining yourself by your job, why not do the opposite? Find a job that suits you, and do what you are. Do what you naturally enjoy most.
