WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN

People are not managed: processes, projects and outcomes are. Your manager’s functional role is to clarify objectives, obtain input, coordinate effort and remove obstacles so your team can contribute to organizational goals.


Your manager’s coaching role is different from their functional role. Instead of clarifying directives, they listen, ask questions, and help you form your own plans to develop in your career or to address other work-related challenges or opportunities.


Managers may listen, ask questions, and help clarify goals and actions in both roles.
The difference is, work is managed to deliver results, you seek out coaching to develop capabilities.
