What is ICF / Erickson coaching?

"ICF / Erickson Definition on Coaching:
Coaching is the ambition of a 100% confidential, client-focused conversation.

The definition including entry will be a bit longer:
"Coaching is the ambition of a 100% confidential, client-focused conversation,
With lasting effect because,
focus person (conversation partner / customer / coachee)
owns all goals, goals and purposes "

With "owns all goals, goals and purposes," we emphasize that the unique new contribution of client-focused coaching, compared by the elderly "-ing - relatives: counseling, mentoring, teaching and leading
Is an "Extreme Client Ownership
to all clients decisions and actions".

Jan Georg Kristiansen, Norway's first (2005) ICF certified MCC coach comments; -"ICF Coaching is like an athletic branch, where the success criterion is the level of giving the customer the full thinking and opinion space, ie maximum" respite room ", in natural" competition "with me as a human being; But here I am your coach, not your supervisor, mentor or counselor. In my opinion, coaching offers something new and unique in the communications discipline, not already offered by the older "-ing's - relatives: counseling, mentoring, teaching, advicing and leading; by it's ambition to fully, 100% focus on the client.

Erickson books in Norwegian (Jan Georg Kristiansen)

"Coaching in schools – personal guide" (2005, Pedlex, Marit Klyve, Jan Georg Kristiansen, Pål Riis) With extracts from Erickson’s result oriented toolbox for coaching and mentoring, this book demonstrates why and how coaching behavior, coaching and mentoring in the years 2002 – 2007 changed the school, and how leaders, teachers and pupils succeeded in study and work. Chapters 5 and 6 describes methods, techniques and steps used in development of a new leadership team and teachers at Ullern secondary high school.

"Professional dialogues - Coaching and relationship thinking in schools" (2008, Universitetsforlaget, Pål Riis, Jan Georg Kristiansen) A study book that lets you follow Ullern secondary high school in Oslo from the brink of catastrophy to success. A very important ingredient was developing a culture of professional dialogues in all parts of the organization. Today effective leadership and day-by-day learning and development of all pupils presupposes that todays leaders, teachers and councilors are highly competent in human communication skills, are able to talk with – and not only talk to – the individual pupil, parent and co-workers.
