The purpose of this chapter was to develop a strengths-based coaching model conducive to a multicultural environment. The model integrates a psycho-existential, positive psychology and person-centered approach (PCA) to provide an ecosystemic view of human nature. The approach focuses on enhancing, predicting and utilising individual strengths and on its various underlying constructs (e.g. happiness, resilience and meaning in work) in order to enhance individual performance and facilitate well-being. A meta-theoretical literature review was used in order to develop a ten-phase strengths-based model for workplace and executive coaching. This chapter focuses on the coaching process.
