Having a sense of how coaching is influencing thinking and practice is integral to not just building trust, but also agency. Agency, as Biesta, Priestly and Robinson (2015) state, is not “something that people can have – as a property, capacity or competence, but something that people do.” Agency is not devoid of feedback however, it is an important process that catalyses reflection and seeks to strengthen relations through dialogue and using information. As a core tenet in the coaching creed, feedback from coaches, to coaches can prove an invaluable source of provocation and growth irrespective of whether the dialogue and data reveal affirmation or challenging news.
