Effective coaching in all sectors - health, executive, performance, relationships - has a developmental dimension. In this way, the emphasis on development cuts across the sectors of coaching. However, attunement to the cultural context is key if developmental coaching is to avoid being formulaic and having a colonizing effect.
The course will explore theories and models of adult development as they apply to coaching practitioners. Most models currently in use emphasize cognition and are culturally centered around western modernity. This course provides a balancing emphasis on relational development by drawing on pre-modern cultural codes. This multidimensional understanding of development is essential to actualizing the possibilities of Metamodernity.
