Paradoxical coaching: Moving with defences

  • Erik de Haan
  • Yvonne Burger

Abstract

The paradoxical approach is eminently suited to tricky coaching situations in which ‘things are not going smoothly‘ where, for example:
  • The coachee does not appear to accept the coach whole-heartedly.

  • Initiatives appear to get bogged down.

  • In one way or another, the coach feels constantly challenged — to be a better coach or to give more, less, or cleverer advice.
