Has Coaching Become Too Technical?
Alec McPhedran, United Kingdom
I have been researching coaching for a number of years - partly in the hunt for the 'simple but effective' set of tools. The more I read, the more I seem to get confused.
In my early learning of coaching, it was quite straightforward - grow and a set of quality interpersonal skills. The results were successful with my clients and life was good.
I ventured into a level 7 executive coaching and mentoring qualification and fear I am losing the plot. So much so that I have had coaching supervision to get back to what I do best as opposed to what others think we should be doing.
For the majority of jobbing coaches working with middle managers, has coaching become too technical?
