Coaching, Passion, Coaching with Passion, Coaching Model, COME Model


            Passion is a keyword of my coaching profession and also the key word of my study. My coaching experience has evolved around this term. My research started from exploring    and investigating the meaning of the term “passion” in the view of successful coach as the first research objective. The second research objective was to develop a model for coaching with passion and the last research objective was to explore the effectiveness of the developed coaching with passion model. The researcher applied pragmatism paradigm as the philosophical guideline to the study. The phenomenological strategy integrated with the Five-Phase T&D process was used. The researcher collected the qualitative data to find the meaning of “passion” by interviewing 5 notable coaches in Thailand then developed a coaching model that was embodied with passion which is called Coaching with passion through a five-phase T&D process. The model development was achieved through the ongoing field-coaching practice with 5 coachees. The researcher has applied various aspects of coaching integrating with the concept of passion in order to develop a prototype model. The prototype was put into the practice and was repeatedly revised; finally the model of coaching with passion was confirmed. The final part of the research was to assure the effectiveness of the model. The research results were as follows:         1. The “passion” meant to do something with a strong desire, love and happiness. Other definition was that “passion” is fear that drives a person to do thing.  It started at the beginning stage of thought and continuing to other steps until achieves a success. Moreover, it was a willing to develop the outcome for a better in the future with more creativity. The result of doing thing that could support other people to establish a feeling of happiness          2. The coaching with passion approach consisted of four components which work interactively together, they were: 1) current: the coach must find the current aspect of a person. 2) Outcome: the coach must initiate a person’s dream and ways to achieve it. 3) Motivation: the coach must stimulate, motivate and induce the energy of the person, and 4) Energy: the coach must create alternatives, inspiration and energy to achieve the set goal.            3. The coaching with passion effectiveness after the implementation was that the model could generate different desirable characteristics of the coachees namely: self-knowledge, self-confidence, courage to design his/her own life, happiness, decision making, self-caring, being patient, discovering new chance, power and creativity, and being a giver.          The researcher has suggested that coaching with passion of the “COME model” can be used by many different professions in order to help individuals to be successful in what they have failed before.
