This paper aims to help coaches better understand their approach to coaching and to help those being coached to have a sense of options in selecting a coach. And, to overview the field of coaching and offer a typology of approaches.
This paper lays out the purposes of coaching, then review two models or approaches to coaching: behavior vs. results. Then goes through the steps for doing each.
This study finds that there are two ways to approach coaching, each with pros and cons and a clear methodology.
We could study these two approaches.
We could help coaches do their work better and help those selecting coaches make more informed decisions.
No one has contrasted these two approaches to coaching and laid out the methodologies for doing each approach. This should help coaching move to a more rigorous definition of models and approaches.
