Leaders in organizations become “eligible” for coaching often based on their level, given that coaching is considered expensive.
However, my view is that by the time they become “eligible” it might be a bit too late.
Young leaders around the age of 35, with a long run way ahead are best poised to benefit from coaching.
That younger people benefit from a directive style of learning and older people from a non-directive style is no longer valid. Everyone benefits only from a non-directive style.
