This book proposes third generation coaching in a form where the coach and the coaches are less concerned with solutions and more concerned with creating space for (self-)reflection through collaborative practices. Offering a revisited and innovative approach to coaching psychology, advantageous for learners and practitioners alike. It marks a new trend in coaching and has a special profile, based on the acknowledgement of changes in society, learning and knowledge production, as well as leadership. The author’ s concept of ​​coaching distinguishes itself from the existing models (pop coaching , GROW model, etc) by offering a fresh analysis of our society – a society that is characterised by diversification, identity challenges, abolition of the monopoly of knowledge, lifelong learning, the necessity for self-reflection, etc. These societal changes are the basis for the existence of coaching and its prevalence, but they must also be the foundation for the way we employ coaching.
