Coach Foundations

The Columbia Approach to Executive and Organizational coaching is theoretically grounded in the Science of Human Performance and is based on what we call three coaching foundations of:

  1. guiding principles
  2. coaching competencies
  3. a three-phased coaching process (Jackson 1991 & Maltbia 2001)

This multidisciplinary approach to coaching emphasizes integrating theory with practice drawing from psychology, neuroscience, organization development, business management, and leadership research. Click on any of the three elements in the graphic above to learn more about each.
