Semi-Directive Coaching

What is Semi-Directive?

           - When the coaching is sometimes Directive and sometimes Non-Directive

Semi-Directive Coaching in the Bible

"Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ." (1 Corinthians 11:1)

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.'" (Matthew 22:36-42)

Semi-Directive Coaching in the Bible

"Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father." (John 14:12)


Why is Semi-Directive Coaching needed?

  1. Sometimes a client needs a basic amount of directing (learning and information) before being able to take a more active role in the progress towards some goal.
  2. Often, in directive-only coaching the client can lose motivation if the progress to a particular goal is too structured, too directive. Too much motivation is supplied by the coach.
  3. Semi-directive coaching can be more responsive to the clients needs. Directive when needed. Non-directive when needed.
  4. Semi-directive coaching can speed up the coaching progress while still maintaining most of the benefits of non-directive coaching.
  5. Semi-directive coaching can supply the Christian Worldview foundation if that is missing in the client.
