The Osmosis of Coaching
As coaches we believe we are helping people develop around whatever topic they bring to the conversation, and we are!
But we are also helping them to experience and assimilate the skills of coaching for their overall development.
Like osmosis, coaching creates an atmosphere in which, through gradual and unconscious assimilation, a leader begins to model what they have experienced.
And this changes the way they lead!
So don’t be surprised when those whom you coach begin to assimilate the principles of coaching in their leadership.
The power of coaching can have ripples well beyond what we often anticipate.
