I coach my clients with questions as tools that probe and examine conscious beliefs and subconscious assumptions.  My coaching may bring these to light or reframe them with you so that you may choose what behaviors and beliefs you want to change for progress toward your goals or objectives, with no judgment by me whatsoever.
Many of our family and cultural and religious conventions are based on three bases of human psychological dynamics that are called Nature/Nurture/Choice, or “N/N/C”  {see my last blogpost}.  The idea is they are a unified oneness that is you, while any one may be dominant or virtually eliminated in any one visible or behavioral stage or state of your life, lasting from a moment to a day to a decade or a lifetime. They are dynamic, not immutable  as they mix in each of us.
Good coaching is consistent with this pluralistic worldview because it does not ever advise or direct you according to the coach’s like or dislikes, their morality (short of any intent to harm yourself or others).
Morality also may be found on a spectrum embedded within (y)our N/N/C.   Our understanding of N/N/C has grown very complex in the 21st century.   The lines between N & N & Choices are diverse and pluralistic in our post-modern world.  Morality always has, always does, and always will, derive from spirituality/worldview because that is what our stage and/or state of consciousness tells us is right and wrong, good and bad.   Humans embody conscience as the seat of morality in their consciousness by definition (and ‘conscienceless’ psychopaths like a Stalin, a Hitler, a Pol Pot, or ISIL only prove this point by how they morally outrage the rest of us.]  Countless laws complement the function fo our consciences.  With a religious ‘god’ or without such a deity, our worldview belief systems are ‘how’ we form our moral compass and consult them daily in all kinds of decisions, and especially in crises.
Good coaching is consistent with this pluralistic worldview because it does not ever advise or direct you according to the coach’s like or dislikes.  Practiced well, their morality is irrelevant because a new global worldview, religious or not, hold an essential morality that recognises and affirms diversity.   No one law can be applied universally to matters of human conscience while by virtue of diversity and pluralism freedom demands the right for all to choose….
Good coaching acts on this same basis.
