The intellectual/human capitals, the ideas and people aren’t transposable from one culture to another. The values of planning and management, the specificities of each place, of each manager, of each team should be considered and respected in their individuality for them to gain ground and flourish. Although it is implicit that Coaching regards these statements, as Coaching is focus on client’s agenda, client’s needs, client’s values…, Coaching is delivered by Coaches that are not more than human.
As Coaching is spreading around the world, we are observing some discussions around cultural awareness in Coaching and about the applicability of Coaching Frameworks within each context. Although the integration of a cultural perspective into Coaching is very much at the ‘pioneering’ stage.
