Breakdowns to breakthroughs: an ontological approach to thought loops and growth edges

Breakdowns to breakthroughs: an ontological approach to thought loops and growth edges Purpose – This paper aims to focus on an ontological approach to executive coaching and transformational learning. Design/methodology/approach – The paper is largely drawn from the methodology for ontological coaching designed by Newfield Network. Concepts are applied in actual coaching examples. Findings – The paper finds that through a transformational process of reflection and deliberate change, we can create a new coherence of self to meet and transcend challenging circumstances. This is consistent with double‐loop learning. Originality/value – This work explains in concrete terms and examples how the ontological approach can be applied to expand knowledge and engage in transformational learning. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png VINE Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Purpose – This paper aims to focus on an ontological approach to executive coaching and transformational learning. Design/methodology/approach – The paper is largely drawn from the methodology for ontological coaching designed by Newfield Network. Concepts are applied in actual coaching examples. Findings – The paper finds that through a transformational process of reflection and deliberate change, we can create a new coherence of self to meet and transcend challenging circumstances. This is consistent with double‐loop learning. Originality/value – This work explains in concrete terms and examples how the ontological approach can be applied to expand knowledge and engage in transformational learning.
