Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing —Tom Peters.

Coaching skills are increasingly more important for leaders in today’s world.  Gone are the days where employees obediently follow their managers orders, without much questioning.  With a new generation of professionals in today’s workforce, leaders have to use a different approach in handling and inspiring these younger generation.
