In chapter two, Sanmuga Nathan, PhD presents a description of innovative coaching model termed known as the non-linear pedagogy coaching for understanding. In chapter three, Zuzana Birknerová, Miroslav Frankovský, Lucia Zbihlejová, and Martin Birkner verify a new, original methodology known as AC – Assessment of Coaching – to identify differences within it.
