Abstract

While initially used in the sports field, coaching is currently considered a domain at the intersection of various disciplines (e.g., andragogy, psychology, behavioral sciences, consulting), which is defined by different theories (e.g., adult learning theories, counseling, psychotherapeutic approaches, and positive psychology). Coaching is primarily conceptualized as an adult learning strategy, using focused conversations between a coach and coachee, where the coach acts as a catalyst for the coachee’s learning process in relation to their goal/issue. Change processes are facilitated by the coach through the use of effective questioning – derived from counseling - meant to assist the coachee in order to formulate realistic goals, overcome obstacles and implement effective steps in reaching their goals.
