Abstract: Leadership is often considered a desired way of managing things. It reveals specific personal characteristics through which leaders involve people into processes. Coaching has to do with a specific way of interaction between a coaching manager and the people receiving the benefit of it. In fact, a coach behaves like a proper leader and a coached individual like a follower. At the same time, leadership is different from coaching. Main objectives of this paper are the following: • to explain the leadership process in relationship with coaching • to provide a set of measures to develop life coaching from leadership way of thinking • to identify the young generation’s perception on coaching The study reveals similarities between leadership and coaching, as well as differences and contributes to a better understanding of these concepts, based on a literature review. The research based on a questionnaire explains the effects of leadership on coaching process based on the students’ perceptions. Therefore, the paper includes a case study for higher education sector.
