Coaching or Managing
Steve blogs about how some coaches are becoming players, thereby undermining the manager's capability to develop expertise.
I hope this trend is stopped, and soon. Obviously that means that some executives have no idea what a coach's role is and that the coach is insecure about his/her ability to build a trusting relationship with the client and so probably wants to show that he/she can play too.
These relationships will not result in either independence or interdependence. They will spawn coaches and clients who are satisfied with the status quo and dependence. It'll be great for the coach's short term billing, but the consequences for his long term trustworthiness would take a beating.
