With the rise of ChatGPT, we asked the Bot a few questions about how ChatGPT/ similar kinds of AI Coaching may change the landscape of executive coaching industry. We are amazed by its depth of analysis and think you might find it interesting too.
It has been on everyone’s lips for a while now, but I heard it out loud for the first time in a client meeting last week: “we are preparing for a recession”.

If you are reading this blog as leader or business owner, the message is clear.

In this blog, I would like to share with you three major areas of how psychology transformed my coaching and why you should bring psychology into coaching.
I don’t subscribe to the “coaching is not psychology” school of thought. In fact, I think that it is a false dichotomy. And in recent years I’ve come to the conclusion that this false dichotomy is harmful to the coaching profession. In this blog, I will argue that coaching is a form of psychology and that it is a good thing.
