I am a manager in a company that has decided to institute a "coaching program" for all employees. Everyone will be assigned a coach who will help them with their career and personal goals. One of the rules of the program is that "your coach should not be your manager".
My problem is that I am already coaching my directs! Does anyone have any experience with coaching programs like this? How does it align with what you as a manager are doing in terms of your team coaching?
