Learning outcomes : To enable coaches to help their clients :

  • Differentiate problems from paradoxes
  • Map paradoxes
  • Recognize where they are, currently

  • Creatively and continuously generate ideas to balance and achieve BOTH objectives


Design: Interactive and skills focused. Participants will map paradoxes and reflect on how they can help their clients better achieve balance in BOTH and AND thinking rather than EITHER OR

Topic: Ontological Coaching and a brief about the two models –Part two.

This session will be a recap of part one where we discussed Ontological Coaching which is based on an exploration of the clients' interpretations of the world and their way of being. By its very nature, this approach to coaching is a philosophical one and supports coachees in a reflection of who they are, rather than simply setting goals and achieving them.

Another aspect of ontological coaching is the emphasis on the transpersonal element: we are not individuals growing up in isolation, but are shaped, as we will see, by the world we are immersed in. Ontological coaches, take a systemic perspective and claim that an individual cannot be effectively coached without some understanding of the world and the systems which the coachee inhabits in.
We will then continue the learning of Ontological Coaching and the two models which are:

  • OAR Model and the
  • BEL Model
