Sustainable Development through


with Psychological Mindedness

in person and virtual

An Overview

Research indicates that 70% of the leadership coaching engagements meet limited success because leaders are often not able to persevere on the stated coaching goals – because of emotional, relationship or situational barriers existing at that time. The boundaries of Coaching engagements or the skill of the coach may limit the focus on the stated competency development only.

Experts have also drawn clear boundaries between coaching and counselling, and rightly so. Certified counselors are needed for barriers presenting in the form of psychological disorders. However, there is a clear differentiation between psychological disorders (to be addressed by certified psychologists) and situational, contextual, anxiety, emotional and relationship concerns, which, as per experts, can be addressed by coaches.

In fact, our coaching experience of over 2 decades and research indicates that a “whole” approach to coaching may be more effective. An approach that integrates Coaching and Psychological Mindedness”, may be useful in cases where the development is needed for competencies and emotional and relational barriers.

This approach recognizes that:

A coaching mandate will ONLY be successful if it is driven by the coachee’s whole motivation and choice

Barriers to coaching effectiveness often present in the form of situational and relational challenges in the coachee’s environment

Identifying these barriers and facilitating the coachee’s navigation through these, is the catalyst for powerful coaching impact

Therefore, the approach of coaching with a psychological mindset, while not transgressing into the areas of disorders, squarely addresses the obstacles of effort and motivation of the coachees

Psychological Mindedness (PM) is a trait which has at its core disposition to reflect upon the meaning and motivation of behaviour, thoughts and feelings in oneself and others. It is a critical requirement for both the coach and the coachee. It has its genesis in the work of Carl Jung and Murray and has been built on, successively through the decades by other experts and is finding its place in coaching.
