Psychological Dimensions to Transformative Coaching
In the third presentation of the Transformative Coaching series, Nick sets out to examine what we mean by the psychological dimension of the Animas approach and how we work with it in a meaningful yet non-directive manner..
In tackling the theme, “Psychological Dimensions to Transformative Coaching”, he will explore why transformative coaching is fundamentally an inside job that emerges from psychological awareness meeting real world behavioural change and the resultant paradigm shift.
With traditional forms of coaching focused on behavioural change, transformative coaching intentionally seeks to create this paradigm shift through reflexive learning, exploration and experimentation and Nick will share how the Animas approach seeks to achieve this. Indeed, the Loosening Up process of the Animas model builds this psychological exploration into the coaching early in the journey..
The psychological dimension then is intrinsically related to real-life experiences yet remains clearly differentiated as an area of exploration in transformative coaching. It is the secret sauce that makes transformative what it is – a loosening of the self-image, beliefs, assumptions and worldview that shapes our encounter with the world.
