What is Ontological Coaching?
Ontology is the study of being. Ontological Coaching works from the premise that as humans we ‘show up’ in three inter-related areas, namely our language, our moods and emotions and our body. When life is not working the way we want it to, then it can be because one or more of these three areas are resulting in us either seeing, thinking, feeling or acting in a certain way that is not helpful. The role of an Ontological Coach is to be an observer of the person being coached, to ask useful questions and to reflect back what they are seeing in order for the person who is being coached to change the way they are being to a more helpful way.
Why use an Ontological Coach?
Often workshops provide useful content, but knowledge without application is wasted. However, even when knowledge is applied people can get stuck in a certain way of being and not be able to apply the knowledge learnt. A skilled coach is able to work with a person to identify where they are stuck and provide them with the tools to move on, in order to achieve the result they want.
How to Use an Ontological Coach?
The most common way that people engage Franca is by attending one of her courses related to being a manager and wanting to explore in more detail the application of the content. It is normally recommended to engage in 4 coaching sessions spread over 2 months, in order to obtain the best results.
