Chapter 2 presents an overview of the eight main theoretical approaches to coaching and their variations as they appear in the literature. These are: cognitive, behavioural, and cognitive-behavioural approaches (which also include smaller theoretical streams such as rational emotive behaviour therapy, multimodal approach and mindfulness coaching); psychodynamic/psychoanalytic approach; transactional analysis approach; existential approach; humanistic/person-centered approach; neurolinguistic programming (NLP); Gestalt psychotherapy; and solution-focused approach to coaching. The presentation of each of these approaches starts with an overview of the conceptual/theoretical background and origin of the approach, followed by a discussion of its application to coaching and particularly executive coaching, and (where such information exists) a discussion regarding evidence of its impact.

Keywords:   cognitive-behavioural approaches, psychodynamic, transactional analysis, existential approach, humanistic approach, neurolinguistic programming, Gestalt psychotherapy, evidence of impact
