Teach Your Team to Fish

Coaching Knowledge Workers Effectively

As professionals, we are trained advisors. People come to us for answers, and they expect us to have them. When it is our team members who come to us for answers, what do we do? If we are like many leaders, chances are, we give them the answer.

As someone once said, “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” Let’s teach our team to fish! While providing the answer (giving them the fish) may be effective in the short term, our long term organizational success is best supported by growing and developing our team (teaching them to fish); that is, coaching them effectively to build their problem solving skills. This supports our evolution and effectiveness as leaders since we can then, in turn, spend our energy on more valuable activities critical to the organization’s success.
