Coaching Models and Processes

Coaching is advanced development for advanced results.  The coaching relationship revolves around the model and follows a process.  A model is a description of how the coaching relationship works.  A process is the step-by-step methodology for the coaching relationship.

The chapter on Coaching Models and Processes in Coaching Perspectives VII lists examples of models and processes, discusses pros and cons, then moves into brainstorming ideas for defining your own model and process.
