Analytic coaching: In search of insight

  • Erik de Haan

Abstract

In analytic coaching, ‘understanding from the inside’ is central, in the form of a joint journey of discovery by coach and coachee. The aim is to increase the coachee’s insight into his or her own issues and problems. The coach does not pose as an ‘expert’, or even as someone who has acquired a large measure of self-knowledge or insight into human nature. The coach’s position is rather that of an ‘empiricist’ — someone who has already trodden this path of insight and understanding — and of a ‘companion’ on the journey of discovery. Preparation for analytic coaching consists mainly of acquiring deep understanding of your own coaching issues from the inside.1
