Coaching or Teaching. What's the difference?

Updated: Jan 6




“A true natural servant automatically responds to any problem by listening first.” LYSSA ADKINS

Teaching is explaining something to someone. The person wanders off, their problem resolved, and the knowledge imparted. Teaching is centered on the subject.

Coaching differs. Coaching is dictated by the student. Coaches focus on the development and guidance of students.

Coaches give the individual the skills to solve the problem themselves.

Coaching requires discipline and practice.

Coaches use questioning techniques to, raising awareness, to encourage the individual to think clearly and creatively.

Coaches get students to think creatively, to uses senses instead of thoughts, to build the skills, movement, and confidence to make better decisions and movements.

Coaching is about helping the student bring out what they already have or know. And that’s how coaches help students change without dictating the change themselves.

Learning-by-doing beats theoretical teaching every day. Practical experience of solving an issue brings true development. In the teaching example, the person will come back to the teacher with similar problems in the future. The skill of the coach is to develop the individual to handle any situation, making the right decisions independently.

Teaching is about sharing knowledge while coaching is about drawing out knowledge.

Teaching is about sharing expertise, drawing from experience, and offering suggestions. “I’d consider this to reach your goal.”

Coaching asks questions to guide the coachee. “What would it take to reach your goal?”

Coaching is a cycle; the job doesn’t end after instruction. Coaches begin by teaching students; they then observe how and what the students learn and then re-evaluate the teaching approach to provide a better understanding. and provide efficient learning solutions.
