What is the Difference Between Coaching and Managing?

Tight deadlines, endless meetings and hundreds of emails – the life of a manager is hectic enough without adding coaching to the mix. But taking that extra effort will benefit the bottom line.

Erickson at the ICF Conference in London, UK

Each year in May, International Coach Federation (ICF) celebrates the annual International Coaching Week. It's a week-long celebration of global events, activities, and pro-bono services that aim to educate the public about the value of professional coaching and offer more insight into results and progress made through the coaching process. The ICF believes that local events can contribute to a massive global impact, a belief Erickson shares with our mission "Changing the world, one conversation at a time".
