Tim Gallwey founded the modern profession of coaching with his book: The Inner Game of Tennis. In this video, he explains his approach.
Tim Gallwey’s Inner Game method is the foundation of the coaching methodology we use at Brightlife. He is the ‘grandfather’ of the modern profession of coaching – and while it is a very broad profession, with many different approaches, many are aligned to his thinking.
I found this fantastic video of him sharing his reflections on what coaching is all about, and what makes it effective. It is simple but profound and inspiring – and a great reminder that coaching is always in service to the individual’s learning – creating self awareness, self direction, and most of all choice. This is a distinctive methodology that is not shared by all providers of what passes for coaching in a crowded marketplace.
The video explains better than I could ever hope to, what we seek in our work with our clients, what our intentions are towards them, and what we aim to unlock within them so that transformational learning takes place.
Watch his video and be inspired. And let me know what you think!
