Our guiding manual during this course: ‘E-Coaching: Theory and practice for a new online approach to coaching’ is underpinned with a theoretical framework that introduces a new model on people development (the ABC-model), inspired by the GROW model of Graham Alexander, and a new text based coaching method inspired by the Politeness theory of Brown and Levinson. Among other topics covered are the implications and strengths of working remotely, increased frequent contact moments, social anonymity and the power of writing.
