The job of a coach or a manager, is to help someone who is rational and wants to change, learn how to actually do that by helping them to overcome their instinctual responses so that they can change. The science of how behaviors are shaped and molded, behavioral conditioning techniques known as operant conditioning, is really useful knowledge for a coach or manager.
