Coaching, in its truest essence, is about facilitating intentional change from wherever people find themselves to where they want to go. How does a Coach bring a holistic perspective that takes into account the whole iceberg rather than tinker with what’s showing above the waterline?
Guided by powerful lenses like the Paradoxical Theory of Change, Self as Instrument of Change and Wisdom of Resistance, the Gestalt approach to Coaching transcends and integrates the Coachee’s current way of being as the vehicle for deep change.
It honours the current reality of the Coachee and leverages it as the springboard for transformation. The Gestalt approach provides a safe container that allows Coachees to appreciate where they are, where they are headed, and the journey that’s going to unfold. It takes strengths-based conversations deeper and helps Coachees make decisions wisely and sustainably.
