Suggesting vs. Questioning

On his blog today, Fred Wilson wrote about two kinds of coaches or advisors.

Type 1 often asks:

Why don’t you try this?

Type 2 often asks:

Why do you want to do that?

He broke out these types of coaches as way to remind founders and CEOs that they need to think about the kind of coach they might want or need. I think it’s also important — for founders, CEOs, and other leaders — to think about the kind of coach they want to be.
