Invites us to question, smile at and react to the topic of professional coaching: offer, positioning, risks, expectations etc. from the point of view both of the coach and of the client. Alix de La Tour du Pin has been a coach since 1995. She has observed drifting tendencies in coaching. She invites us to reflect on the risks of this fabulous profession, whose contours are sometimes still fuzzy.
Influenced by multiple dimensions of the social sciences, distinct from therapy, training and consulting, the coaching profession is not always easy to circumscribe. This book has no claims to be exhaustive. Its aim is simply to caution and to generate smiles.
