"Coaching is a love affair with questions" ... Julio Olalla
Talking About is an ontological coaching group that was formed by Jacqui Chaplin and Chris Chittenden in 2005. Jacqui and Chris have been involved in the ontological coaching world since the 1990s.
Our vision is to CREATE NEW THINKING in the world with the aim of addressing the major challenges we human beings face today and help people achieve the outcomes and relationships in life they desire in all the domains of their life.
We aim to achieve our vision a revolutionary approach known as the "Ontological Approach". This approach is a deeply aligned way of understanding the human condition and the way we relate to each other. The Ontological Approach has its roots in many disciplines including the philosophy of language, the biology of cognition and is aligned with the latest findings in neuro-scientific research. As with findings of much of today’s neuro-scientific research, the Ontological Approach provides new and surprising insights to many aspects of human conditions, our relationships and the challenges of organisational life.
We offer the Ontological Approach to both organisations and individuals and provide practical and transformational approaches to each.
