Coaching by Managers and by Leaders

I've been a long time manager in multinational companies and I am since 8 years a self-employed business coach. As a professional coach I support my coachees in finding their own solution of their own problems. Their solution is completely neutral to me.
Managers and leaders can use coaching methods and attitudes to help and facilitate their co workers to find solutions for their problems and questions. But by definition a manager/leader can't be a coach as such solutions must be accepted by the leader - he/she is not in a neutral position.
So coaching from a leader's perspective facilitates solution focused thinking, participation and "growing" of the coworker - if the leader wants to develop the coworker. In some cases leading is the preferred method (e.g. emergency situations, new co workers, single time opportunities, etc.).
