Coaching approach

My personal philosophy centres on a belief in human potential, combining humanitarianism with the need for ground-breaking performance and leadership at all levels of society. My basic coaching philosophy is grounded in Rogerian/Socratic principles with the coach a sophisticated facilitator of reflective learning, though I can be semi-directive where needed. Working for clients in complex, strategic or critical situations, my main focus is on systemic transformational coaching involving the ‘7-eyed model’ of therapeutic and coaching supervision (ref. Hawkins and Smith, 2006). This links the intrapersonal, interpersonal and systemic factors affecting client performance. It provides a safe, open space for self-challenge and experimentation and enables the client to form a comprehensive system view. I recognise that models are only models and work flexibly and intuitively for outcomes.
