Abstract (Summary)

At the very heart of coaching is the art of listening, from which the natural byproduct of making others feel valued may be derived. One of the main functions of coaching is to help develop a narrative that will unlock an athlete’s potential. This study gathered 31 undergraduate participants’ responses to a coaching philosophy called Narrative Based Coaching (NBC) with the purpose of developing stronger perspectives of their own narratives within the participants. Results of the study suggest that using philosophical coaching approaches such as NBC to enhance students’ narratives can be beneficial to overall wellbeing, thus supporting the presence of coaching centers on university campuses to boost student potential inside and outside the classroom.
