Methodology – Integral Coaching

Coaching can only lead to sustainable long-term solutions and changes if it addresses the important aspects of your respective issue. I like working with the integral coaching approach which functions like a “map”. It’s very well suited for staying on top of things in complex and dynamic situations.

The following aspects will be considered:

The coachee's...

  • personality, values, inner beliefs and emotions
  • physical and psychological status quo, behavior and behavioral patterns

The coachee’s environment... 

  • corporate culture, relationsships, values, collective beliefs

  • structures, procedures and processes, financial, human, temporal, technical resources

 

There’s a wide variety of methods and tools to work with and I always apply these to the relevant questions, issues and goals in the respective coaching process. You will …

  • develop an understanding of what drives you and of what you need in order to stay content and motivated.
  • become aware of what is important to you, of what gives you purpose, in life in general as well as regarding your work, and of what fulfills you.
  • define which skills and resources you’ve developed over the course of your life stations, and which ones you are viable for the future.
  • find out what prevents you from taking certain steps and from coping with your situation in a target-oriented manner.
  • find a way to incorporate conflicting and contradictory needs and find a “proper place” for them

Practical examples for integral coaching

Example 1:
If your personal values, strengths and motives are not in synch with those of your working environment, this can take its toll on your motivation and performance. It can also have a negative impact on your communication with colleagues, superiors and clients.

Over the course of your coaching process, you will identify your personal values and strengths. You will begin to see what’s really important to you, which in turn makes it easier to take a clear stance. You now have an inner compass at your disposal, for directing you when it comes to systematic changes and impending professional decisions within your given situation.     


Example 2:
Time pressure, sickness rates and continuous multitasking are typical stress triggers in working environments. Specific inner drives such as “I always have to…”, “under no circumstances must I …” add to the stress level. Learning to recognize and put into perspective these inner drives and related emotions enables you to reassess your priorities and to stand by them in a more confident way in front of others. You will be more at ease and your performance will improve.

Coaching-Evaluation of a client regarding "methods and tools"

“I had read a great deal about Ms Pachabeyan’s methods on her website before I began coaching, and I expected them to be effective. But the actual impact came as a surprise all the same: I never would have thought I’d experience such a profound change within a relatively short time period.
I’m attributing this to two of Ms Pachabeyan’s approaches in particular. On an intellectual level, she recognized my profound curiosity and explained all her methods very carefully, thereby giving me a great basis for my own work. On an emotional level, Ms Pachabeyan was able to assist me with remarkable empathy by helping me see and begin to dissolve a number of my mental blocks regarding difficult issues.”
