EMCC Reflective Questions


Answer Questions

The session is based on the principle that is used mostly in Southern Africa and other parts of Africa. This is called “Ubuntu” which means “I am because We Are” . Used in coaching Ubuntu ensures that the coach really sees the client.
In South Africa when you greet a person you say SAWUBONA, meaning I see you, I see everyone who has contributed to who you are, I see your dreams, hopes and aspirations. Using Ubuntu in coaching entails presence for both Coach and Client. It is based on bringing out the following Cs: Compassion, Courage, Curiosity, Connection, Commitment to Action

  1. How the coach ensures presence and brings out both Being and Doing in the client.
  2. Integration of Head, Heart, Hands (Intellectual intelligence, Emotional Intelligence, Instinctual intelligence), bringing out the whole person.
  3. Process applies Systems Thinking “I am because We Are”.
