On inquiry, the groundwork of coaching and consulting
De Haan, E.
International Coaching Psychology Review, accepted / in press, 2013
The purpose of this study is to go to the heart of the consulting and coaching intervention and to explore what is its core active ingredient. In earlier articles (De Haan, 2011 & 2012) I introduced two basic ingredients in terms of their historical understanding: transference and reflective-self function. This article hopes to demonstrate how underpinning these important dynamical ingredients of executive coaching there is a still more fundamental faculty, that of basic inquiry.
