Which learning theories underpin your coaching philosophy and practice?

Posted on: 17 Nov 2023

Since its inception, coaching has had a multidisciplinary foundation. From sports to business, from psychology to education, coaching is a synthesis of borrowed theories, techniques and tools. While most coaches are not aware of the theoretical origins of their practice, one discipline that many claim to be at the heart of coaching is learning.



This issue of Coaching Research in Practice reviews a recent paper that examines the relationship between learning and coaching. Given that the process of learning in coaching was the focus of my own PhD, this is a topic close to my heart. This article therefore offers coaches an opportunity to deepen their understanding of the learning theories underpinning coaching, thereby bringing learning processes closer to the hearts of more coaches, whilst in turn, boosting the credibility of their practice.


Be quick! This issue of Coaching Research in Practice is freely accessible to all ReciproCoach members for one week.
