Are you ready to accomplish something important? Are you ready to help others do the same? Either way, coaching is the key to making it happen.

What Coaching is NOT, #2. Coaching is not Training

Coaching is not training. As someone who does both for a living, it’s clear to me that while both aim at helping the coachee or trainee change for the better, coaching assists the person being coached to learn from their experiences during the coaching process while training is designed to help training participants be exposed to specific content and maybe work with it inside a training experience.

In both cases, learning is the result. Coaches support their coachees to look back at what they’ve been doing in their day-to-day lives and to inquire into those experiences to discover lessons learned.  Training is more predictable and is based on learning objectives.
