Editor's note
In the first of a month-long series of features on coaching,
Tony Dixon asks why, as more companies are investing in this
form of development, UK plc is still facing a dearth of talent?

Starting from the controversial viewpoint that coaching is
fundamentally not about problem-solving, Tony sets out a
thought-provoking piece that examines who should (and shouldn't)
receive coaching and why leaders don't always understand the
expectations and values inherent to their roles.
