Coaching can help us reinforce the idea that doing the job and learning about the job are not separate, competing activities, but rather part and parcel of the same activity.

I wrote a recent article for Training Zone on the importance of bringing coaching into a business.

I believe the best way to introduce a learning culture into an organisation that hasn’t had one previously is to begin with coaching. Doing it this way dispels the notion that learning is simply about ‘going on a course’ and instead helps embed it into your everyday activities. 

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