Non Directed Coaching Approach

This coaching approach asks to be invited into conversations to discover and support the thinking of the leader. Through careful listening, reflection, and the provision of strategically designed "I wonder" questions the leader processes their thinking.


It is  their thinking that will refine their conclusions thus crystallizing their objectives, priority areas for focus, and strategies for intervention.


Access to the organization where the leader serves to observe the circumstances and unique aspects of culture that are in play may be helpful.


"Leaders are people who are clear about their person and their purposes ... who take the initiative to promote their influence with intentionality and integrity." (Mitch Seeley)
