Assumptions of Coaching: You Can Change and Develop Yourself
Francielle Nunes, Entrepreneur, Brazil, Member
Since the 1960s, human studies, psychotherapy and philosophies rooted in oriental traditions like Zen Buddhism and Taoism created more interest for self-reflection and spiritualism, self-knowledge and humility, valuing, protecting and respecting human beings.

This slowly resulted in an increasing focus in business management on coaching, both of individuals and teams.

Coaching emphasizes the power of the human being to change as well as the importance of continuous self-development through ongoing education. Below are some of the most important assumptions of coaching:
  1. People know more than they think themselves.
  2. People have unexplored resources that can improve their performance.
  3. Asking appropriate, stimulating and objective questions is more valuable than commands and controls.
  4. Every mistake represents an opportunity to grow.
  5. Challenging and achievable goals encourage people to do their best.Sign up
