A methodological framework and guidelines for coaching individuals into strengthening their inner-self and their self-direction ability will be developed. This tool box will contain helpful tools for coaching in different occasions and contexts. The attitude of the coach in the meeting with his coachee and his concerns will have a central place in order to achieve a resource-oriented coaching, a “back-to-logic” (exploration motivation) rather than an “away-from-logic” (avoidance motivation). For personal development, it is decisive to work with targets that trigger positive emotions (i.e. mood, mental excitement). Positive emotions increase the motivation for action and implementation, while negative emotions weaken motivating target effects. Therefore, a respectful, non-judgmental and resource-oriented approach supporting a benevolent-accepting and open self-exploration of the client will be addressed and promoted on three broad areas:
- theme-oriented interventions,
- development-oriented interventions,
- process-oriented interventions.
