Track 1 Intra/Interpersonal Space Coaching Demonstration: How to coach with vision thanks to Socrates' Maieutics?

Abstract: As a coach, you want people to find their own way of being at their best. Five hundred years BC in ancient Greece, Socrates invented maieutics, « the art of giving birth » to the truth in the one you are coaching, as a spiritual midwife, by asking questions. My intention is to elicit and demonstrate the process of maieutics, how you can model it and apply it to get positive results.
