The G.R.O.W. model

We know that people are promoted into positions of management mainly due to their technical ability. This can encourage them to be the problem solver for others that, in turn, means that people in their team depend on them for solutions. Adopting a coaching mindset helps leaders of teams build capability so that people are willing to offer other ways of solving issues and think of new ways of doing things.
