When to Bring in a Professional Coach

As you would expect, here at Rook Tree we would say that the are all sorts of reasons why you would benefit from bringing in a professional coach and they aren’t all related to poor performance, or preparing for a job application.  Therefore, we were interested to find an article in the Harvard Business Review by Robin Wynn describing other occasions when it would be useful to bring in the expert.  Such as;

  • if you’ve lost sight of when (and where) to draw the line with colleagues
  • to focus an unruly team member
  • when someone ‘doth protest to much’ about not needing a coach (we all know someone like that, don’t we!)
  • when you have an obvious rising star in your team

We like this very accessible article published on 20 February 2015.
