Well said - coach (or teach) the person, not the skill.

How about this for a definition of the difference between teaching and coaching: the act of teaching has a defined endpoint – remember a fact, pass an exam – whereas coaching is more open-ended and strives to show the way to the next improvement.

Or – teaching aims to put something (facts, skills) into the student; coaching aims to draw somethiing out.

With apologies to all of the excellent teachers who are, by these definitions, top class coaches (as well as top class teachers) after all…
