This paper aims to focus on an ontological approach to executive coaching and transformational learning.
The paper is largely drawn from the methodology for ontological coaching designed by Newfield Network. Concepts are applied in actual coaching examples.
The paper finds that through a transformational process of reflection and deliberate change, we can create a new coherence of self to meet and transcend challenging circumstances. This is consistent with double‐loop learning.
This work explains in concrete terms and examples how the ontological approach can be applied to expand knowledge and engage in transformational learning.
