THE KNOWLEDGE-BASED APPROACH
What is it?
Knowledge-based coaching is an approach that involves adapting theories, knowledge, and traditions from a whole range of disciplines and applying them to the coaching engagement, as and when appropriate. These may include theories from leadership, psychology, change management, and organisational culture; knowledge from spirituality, family systems, sustainability, and mindfulness; and traditions from self-help and the human potential movements.
Why is it important?
Working from an extensive knowledge base allows the coach to shape a strategy for working with the client based on verifiable, credible resources, and to serve the client’s needs with greater focus and precision. For good reason, coaches with a knowledge-based background have a distinct marketing edge.
