A team needs a leader. A coach leads a team. A team wins when the individual players are operating in unison at their highest personal level of competence and confidence. One weak link in the chain and the team suffers, so a coach will work with individuals to be their best, knowing it fulfills a higher purpose. With the full infusion of so many generations now in the workforce, with their varied skillsets and backgrounds, has there ever been a more pressing time for good coaching at work and less dictatorial managing? Yes, that was a rhetorical question.
