Training and Coaching

I spend most of my time training managers and leaders to be better in their roles. I'm always curious about how people want to take what they learn in their training forward into one-to-one coaching. They will pick on something very specific in the training (such as dealing with a difficult person or taking a strategic leadership decision) and then the coaching will become almost completely swamped by that one issue. This is fine in one respect as it can focus on an issue that needs resolution but it can also make for a narrow perspective in which the client starts getting that difficult person on issue out of perspective. This is important for the coach to control especially if you take a client led approach! You really have to ask perceptive and sometimes difficult questions so that the client doesn't get too bogged down in this.
