Welcome to the web pages of the “Hamburger
The „Hamburger Schule“ is
a systematic explanation of autonomous coaching. Autonomous
coaching means that the coachees are able to analyse themselves within
context with the aid of the coaching process and to develop alternative
actions which can
satisfy the subject they wish to change for the future.
The “Hamburger Schule” regards coaching approaches which
are not part of this process as
authoritarian coaching, since coaches make a diagnosis and an evaluation
influence the realisation process of the coachee with their “own
point of view”.
According to the “Hamburger Schule”, autonomous coaching
is based on the theory of selforganised
coaching and combines theory with training as well as the specific
and activities of coaches.
For everyone interested in coaching, the „Hamburger Schule“ offers
an abundance of
information which helps understand, to reflect upon and to continue
developing coaching and
the training of coaching.
Quality standards or ideas on quality for coaching and the training
of coaching are not
consistently systemised at a practical level. Agreement and a common
coaching and, therefore, the training of coaching are only present
at a high abstraction level.
Amongst these are the following three valuable assertions:
- Coaching is help for self-help.
What does this fundamentally mean when trying to understand help
and which definitive processes, understandings or activities in a
are indeed help for self-help?
The responsibility for the process lies
with the coach. The coachee is responsible for developing solutions
and for the results.
What is process structure and how is it legitimised? Who develops
(alternative actions) in coaching and how are these developed? Who
for carrying out these solutions and how is this perceived?
Coaching is not psychotherapy (in the sense of the treatment of psychological illness).
In general, the provision of solutions is made at a practical level
as therapeutic counselling. But what is the alternative?
The way coaching is understood at the “Hamburger Schule” is
based on practical experience, scientific reasoning and
pragmatic solutions. Our theory of self-organised coaching
describes and explains how and why a lasting self-learn-concept is
the core of the meaning and effectiveness of coaching.
The understanding of coaching according
to the „Hamburger Schule“ is
based upon freedom.
