The coach does not use people as his means whereby he achieves a result, he uses the result and the task as his means whereby he enables people.

Care and Growth Applied – Coaching:

A key requirement of the Care and Growth model is that a leader uses the task or result as his means whereby he enables people. Most managers find it very difficult to see more in this statement than a linguistic trick. This model will change your experience of this statement from a trick to a solid methodology.

It will define what changes when the coach makes the principle deliverable in the relationship with the subordinate, a change in the competency of the subordinate.

It aims to help you use the routine job of a subordinate as a gymnasium to affect a change in competency, identify a learning opportunity per subordinate, and structure your reporting relationship with each subordinate in such a way that the deliverable of the relationship will be the person's growth, ultimately affecting this change over time.
