Coaching is NOT:
Direct guidance, when vested in power manager tells to a subordinate what to do exactly to achieve results
Consulting, where a client is given with ready solutions on defined performance indicators
Mentorship, when a senior expert shares their knowledge and wisdom with a younger learner
