Approach to Coaching: I start off by developing a close relationship to the group/individual and let them know that I consider myself to be an advocate on their behalf. I try to listen as much as possible and see what they consider to be their biggest needs and try to learn as much as possible by asking questions and not coming in with any presumptions about them or their work.
