I hope the title caught you by surprise as it was intended to but there's actually a seriousness to the title. I teach leaders how to coach their employees and often I get the question how did my coaching career start. It really started, all joking aside, from doing really stupid things.
What does this mean, being proactive? Can you define it? Can you describe it, specifically? This aspect of being proactive is one we hear from managers all the time. When we press them for a definition they struggle a bit and here in lies the opportunity! There is no doubt people who are proactive will typically be better with time management, project completion, client engagement, etc.
