Coaching is one of the oldest forms of learning, used originally by our hunter-gatherer ancestors to develop the survival abilities of their youngsters. In fact, everybody receives and provides coaching in many key moments of life: however, this is not always done in a very effective way. This manifesto would like to offer as many people as possible the opportunity to become a better learner. Better learners are going to make the world a better place to live in.
In the manifesto you will find a few basic tools that can enable you to start learning through a coaching relationship in a business context. The approach is practical, explained through examples, anecdotes and exercises that you can easily complete by yourself: don't be afraid to try the coaching techniques!
Coaching is for everybody who wants to become a better performer.
