The Erickson coaching approach is based on a solution-based methodology. It is an advanced model that integrates the coaching profession with a highly sophisticated set of techniques for personal growth and development, using a comprehensive approach that helps individuals, managers, and teams act in accordance with their highest individual and corporate vision.
The approach is based on proven techniques, tools and processes that support transformational change through a creative partnership between coach and client. The coach leads the client to a positively framed future outcome through a systematic process that fosters confidence in the client’s internal resources and skills. Coaching is a zone where advice doesn’t exist and a field of action for a set of activities and action steps to be taken by the client.
International Coaching Federation (ICF) has acknowledged the Erickson approach.
Cognitive Behavioral Coaching (CBC) is a systematic approach which is scientifically based and rests on the theory and practice of cognitive-behavioral therapy and empirical psychology. The aim of the CBC is change and action. CBC has found wide use in the business environment as it focuses on personal and professional development and empowerment of individuals and teams.
Progress is accomplished through a partnership between the client and the coach and by using different cognitive, behavioural and imaginative techniques. The mutual goal is for the client to be empowered in a short period to act independently towards achieving their full potentials i.e. to continue reducing the difference between what they are capable of and what they actually do. CBC is a good tool for achieving effective change and to increase both efficiency and job satisfaction, as well as in other areas of life.
International Society for Coaching Psychology (ISCP) has acknowledged Cognitive Behavioural Coaching.
The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® (LSP) method supports thinking, communication, and problem-solving techniques for individuals. As a strategic coaching tool, it leads to different insights and perspectives on a complex problem through a playful approach.
This method is more appropriate for candidates who are less prone to visualization and introspection, often from the technical professions.
