Hello mihaÃ ̄. Are you talking about the high expectations of the manager/coach or the person being coached? Either way, I agree that „immediately high expectations“ are not very helpful. But these expectations lag behind the attitudes of those involved – this is not a feature of formal coaching itself. Any effort a superior makes to truly coach their employees is a step to allow the potential to make discretionary efforts and improve performance. Effective organizations are usually those where managers listen to their employees and ask research to raise awareness and create a sense of personal responsibility in action. Over the past few years, as a coach, my thinking has evolved in this area, especially when I was introduced into the concept of formal/informal and explicit/implicit coaching.
