Coaching is a form of individual learning which helps people to progress in their professional development — their ‘career.’1 In this chapter we examine how coaching fits in with individual learning styles and individual careers. We also explore situations when coaching is perhaps not the best answer. As a coach, reflecting on the coachee’s learning can help you emphasise the autonomy of the coachee and so avoid becoming too involved yourself. Finally, the role of the coach is to encourage the coachee’s autonomous learning process. The coachee remains the owner of that process: (s)he will have to go through it in person!
