Barefoot Business and Personal Coaching Course

Module 1

27th – 30th January 2017

Here are 5 Brilliant Coaching Topics i learnt on Module 1 of Barefoot Business and Personal Coaching Course:

#1 – Human Given Needs

Human givens approach is grounded in an evolutionary understanding of human nature. It proposes that evolution has endowed all members of our species, regardless of race or culture, with a common set of innate physical and emotional needs along with a set of innate physical, emotional and psychological resources. [1]

#2 – ABC Model

The ABC Model is one of the most famous cognitive behavioural therapy techniques for analysing your thoughts, behaviour and emotions. [2]

#3 – Locus of Control

Within psychology, Locus of Control is considered to be an important aspect of personality.  The concept was developed originally Julian Rotter in the 1950s.

Locus of Control refers to an individual’s perception about the underlying main causes of events in his/her life.  Or, more simply:

Do you believe that your destiny is controlled by yourself or by external forces (such as fate, god, or powerful others)? [3]

#4 – Self Determination Theory

Self-Determination Theory (SDT) is a theory of motivation. It is concerned with supporting our natural or intrinsic tendencies to behave in effective and healthy ways. [4]

#5  – Iceberg Model

The Iceberg Coaching Model addresses how a person represents themselves in the world (exposed part of the iceberg) and what their motivations are (unseen, submerged part of the iceberg). [5]
