Towards the Whole Human – The Holistic Dimension in Transformative Coaching
In the fourth presentation of the Transformative Coaching series, Nick explores and unpicks the holistic dimension.
In “Towards the Whole Human – the Holistic Dimension in Transformative Coaching”, he will propose a framework that embraces the individual in their whole system.
In effect, Nick asks us to consider our clients as both an individual system, mind, body, spirit, but also part of a wider system, of family, work, society and beyond – not as an ethical standpoint but as an ontological one. The nature of being of that person and the extent to which that being is shaped by and responsive to the wider systems.
We ignore these at our peril when we treat our clients as disconnected decision-makers and guardians of their own destiny and, Nick suggests, this is why coaching so often fails when the client engages back in the real world.
