Coach as ‘Pair of Hands’

What happens if you acquiesce to being an extra ‘pair of hands’ on your coaching assignment by agreeing to do things for the coaching client.

What might it look like if you resist doing ‘staff augmentation’?

Note: A J-Curve visualization is different, that represents the dip that occurs when learning something new.  This is a model on the coach’s impact on a team/organisation overall.

No apologies offered for the hand drawn nature of these drawings.
