Coaching and professional support is increasingly seen as a must-have for managers and emerging leaders.  While sometimes coaching might commence following a particularly stressful period, it is our view that all managers and leaders should have access to good quality support before problems arise.  Once the need for coaching has been recognised, common questions arise.  What happens in a coaching program?  Is it confidential?  Is it psychotherapy?  Is there a curriculum?  What will they get out of it?  Is it expensive?  How often do you meet?  Are you a psychologist?  What management experience do you have?  Why am I paying for this?  How will I know it is working?  Can you help us with other organisational issues?  Should I provide training before problems arise?  What if I pay for their development and they leave?
