About this course
Chances are that if you don’t know what psychological ideas influence your coaching (also your psychology, your OD practice, your counseling, your facilitation – basically all the helping relationships) your coaching is influenced by the dominant psychological thinking (either where you studied, or your culture, or even in society).
This is not a problem, per se. The problem comes in when practitioners (psychologists, coaches, and other) see their take on things as the only valid take on reality.
Well, there is often even the lack of an awareness of there being a ‘take on’ (or lens) of things. Such practitioners, but all of us regarding many things in life most of the time, have merely adopted the reality with which we have been presented.
This is something that this course in the psychological fundamentals of coaching attempts to change without having to enroll for a psychology related degree.
