Zagadnienie „zmiany” a możliwości wykorzystania coachingu w edukacji dorosłych
THE ISSUE OF “CHANGE” AND THE POSSIBILITIES OF THE INTRODUCING COACHING INTO THE EDUCATION OF ADULTS
Languages of publication
The question of change appears both in the anagogical discourse and in the coaching practise. Coaching has been continually gaining popularity as a method of personal and professional development focused on the planned and conscious changes made in the lives of the adults. The theory and practise of adult education also relate to the lifelong, non-formal education and development. Therefore, the authoress of this article presents the possibilities resulting from mutual cooperation of those two disciplines. The aim of this article is to search for the place and significance of coaching in adult education. The authoress presents the basic elements of coaching practice, such as: coach-client relations, a model of coaching communication, as well as coaching models and tools. She presents the advantages and possibilities of introducing those elements into the education of adults – in the context of change, illustrating the text with quotations of the real coaching clients. She also emphasizes the limitations of coaching practice, which however, do not eliminate the advantages of using this model in andragogy.
