The notion of GROW coaching can make us believe that asking questions is all there is to coaching, but this is simply not true. 

I recently wrote an article for the guys at Training Zone about the GROW model.

Many management training courses focus on the GROW model as a way to teach delegates how to coach, but this seldom works and it’s time we equipped managers with the right skills to coach effectively. 

Have a read of the article and let me know what you think.
