Mentoring a Behavioural Coach in Thinking Developmentally: A Dialogue
O Laske International Journal of Evidence Based Coaching and Mentoring 2008
In this paper, presented largely in the form of a dialogue, I outline the mental processes required for engaging with the Constructive Developmental Framework (CPF) (Laske, 1999). From among the varieties of process consultation potentially benefiting from using CDF, I focus on coaching. I speak from experience with CDF, rather than primarily in terms of its theoretical foundations. Using one example, I convey a ‘feel’ of how developmental coaching works in practice once CDF has been learned and internalized by its user.
