Amazing to see journalists from an HR specialist magazine writing stuff like this. Let me quote from the first part of the article, then go read and weep!

Singapore – Many companies are jumping on the bandwagon to implement online training programmes for their employees but the question of whether this modern means of coaching has optimised learning remains.

Oh really? Whose question is that?

Clearly someone who has no idea about the difference between training and performance coaching. This is symptomatic of the trend in the last five years for the term “Coaching” becoming fashionable.

Is it good that companies are now more aware of coaching? I suppose so. Yet so many managers these days say “Oh yes, I coach my staff.”

In actual fact they are still failing to grasp the concept of Profitable Leadership™. What they are doing is still being leadership bankrupt by telling their teams what to do and how to do it. Just like before, only now it has a new label.

You can find out what real Profitable Leadership is right here.

On the bright side, the rest of the article is good, but then they are quoting someone who knows what they are talking about. So ignore the headline and read the rest of the article here.
