Coaching is a conversational activity that aims to support people to learn and develop, therefore enhancing their ability to achieve more of their untapped potential.
This way of understanding coaching highlights how it is perfectly aligned with the purpose of educational organisations. By highlighting the "self-directed" nature of the interaction, we are distinguishing coaching from mentoring.
Coaching is not about teaching--it is about creating the environment in which people can learn for themselves by connecting with their natural curiosity.
In this edition we hope to offer you some insights and practical tools on how to best introduce coaching in education.
