What happens before, during and after a coaching insight?

Posted on: 24 Oct 2019

Regardless of the goal, the aim of every coaching session is to generate new insight. Furthermore, the responsibility for this is shared between coach and client. Yet even though insight is arguably the goal of coaching, there is surprisingly little research that examines this core process.

This issue of Coaching Research in Practice reviews some recent research into insight events in coaching sessions. It sheds light on a structure for insight emergence, as well as on the before, during and after events and the interplay between coach and client during the insight process.
