Coaching is not merely a technique to be wheeled out and rigidly applied in certain prescribed circumstances. It is a way of managing, a way of treating people, a way of thinking, a way of being.
As a leader of others, you have two key tasks, delivering the results of the research/business group and growing your researchers / students to become more effective in delivering the results. Growing others can be done via various directive and non-directive management/coaching techniques.
