Ontological coaching is a powerful coaching methodology that sparks a transformation in individuals. In this approach, coaches focus on the 'way of being' of the client, which is the dynamic interrelationship between the client's language, emotions, and body.
I start every coaching engagement with a behavioral assessment for my clients to see their behaviors and habits on paper. Since habits and behavior can be changed, this assessment serves as a perfect jump off point to designing our coaching engagement together. We build a mindfulness around autopilot behaviors and create a practice around behaviors they're interested in building to become a more well-rounded leader.
