Coaching for Transformation
In this presentation, Transpersonal Coach Jevon Dangeli introduces the 3 cornerstones of transformation in coaching.
Coaching may serve as an escalator toward transformation by incorporating perspectives and processes that promote expanded states of consciousness.
A transpersonal approach in coaching can help one to identify how they create their perception of reality, while establishing a widened awareness that includes a new, tangible and desirable reality, as well as ways to integrate this into one’s life.
This 17 minute video presentation covers:
- Can coaching lead to transformation?
- What might such coaching processes involve?
- Which criteria promote transformation in coaching?
- What is the value of transpersonal perspectives?
Transpersonal perspectives expand one’s self-construct and world view. This may be of value in coaching through generating expanded states of consciousness and integrating these in the context of everyday life. This way of coaching – beyond the ego – can help to transform a crisis into a spiritual awakening, which in turn can be leveraged in order to bring more resourceful perspectives and constructive solutions into challenging situations.
“Transpersonal Coaching Psychology (TCP) is the theory and practice of coaching that takes a holistic and integrative approach to supporting client growth and transformation. This is achieved through an individually tailored process helping the client to identify what provides them with a sense of meaning and purpose and, in turn, to support the client to find ways of purposefully expressing this – in their work, their personal life and within relationships. From a TCP perspective, the role of the coach is to support the client to develop a more expansive sense of self and, in so doing, to help the client access the necessary resources (social, emotional, psychological and spiritual) that will help them attain their fullest potential”.
– Robin Jordan (Forensic Psychologist)
TCP involves shifting attention to create the space for transformation to happen and then generating willingness to integrate the client’s new awareness into the context where it is most meaningful to them. This can be considered as a bio-psycho-socio-spiritual approach to coaching that helps clients resolve issues concerning the body, mind, relationships and spirituality.
Jevon’s transpersonal coaching methodology combines Transpersonal Psychology with Mindfulness based interventions and the holistic applications of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) in order to achieve sustainable outcomes. These three complimentary fields have been synergised into one seamless Transpersonal Coaching Model.
