Our ‘Self as Coach’ work begins ‘at home’ and by ‘home’, we mean ‘one’s internal landscape’. It’s unfortunate that not all coaches choose this journey, but those who do, will gain a clearer framework for getting to know themselves, exploring their multiple layers, and awakening their latent abilities so that they can better foster the abilities of others.
Pam McLean’s ‘Self as Coach’ approach interweaves six broad dimensions of ones’ internal landscape into the fabric of great coaching through “using the self as an instrument”. A key dimension of developmental coaching emphasizes the whole person. This comprehensive self-work helps to create lasting improvements--unlike more common remedial, tactical, or performance-based programs, which often only function as short-term solutions.
Whether you’re an emerging or experienced coach, whether you want to grow your own leadership skills or develop them across an entire organization, Self as Coach can help. With its proven methods, and near-universal applicability, that can help you uncover lasting insights.
