I learnt this today:
The Chinese word for coaching is 陪導 (pei dao), made up of two separate words – path or journey, and inch.
So, literally . . .
“Journeying together, one inch at a time.”
This reminds me of so many good, positive thoughts around coaching . . . of rapport-building, of developing, of working closely with someone, of working it out.
And also that while coaching may sometimes be a slow process, it’s a powerful one.
