Coaching, empowerment and health : A literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Begreppen coaching och empowerment har blivit mycket populära. Coaching är att hjälpa människor att lyckas. Empowerment översätts på svenska med egenmakt och maktmobilisering. Syfte med denna studie är att undersöka hur coaching kan hjälpa till att främja empowerment och därmed bidra till att öka människornas hälsa. Frågeställningar är: Vilka samband finns det mellan coaching och empowerment? Hur påverkar empowerment människornas hälsa? Kan man öka individens hälsa med coaching? Uppsatsen grundas på en litteraturstudie. I resultatet analyseras elva vetenskapliga artiklar. Resultatet visar att empowerment och coaching har mycket gemensamt och att båda främjar människornas hälsa. Coaching kan förbättra självförtroendet (själv-efficacy), självkänslan (self-esteem), självmanagement, coping, autonomi, empowerment, smärt- och stresshanteringen, ledarkompetensen och den emotionella intelligensen. Coaching leder till en attitydförändring som underlättar livsstilsförändringar och höjer livskvalitén. Coaching främjar människans Känsla Av SAMmanhang (KASAM) som innebär mer hanterbarhet, begriplighet och meningsfullhet i livet. Studiens slutsats är att coaching är ett sätt att göra empowerment. Diskussionen behandlar skillnaderna mellan empowerment och paternalism, emotionell intelligens och dess betydelse och hur coaching påverkar hälsan. Dessutom diskuteras sambandet mellan psyke och kropp, betydelsen av coping och hur coaching främjar ledarkompetenserna. Slutligen behandlas coaching i kontexten till empowerment och Känslan Av SAMmanhang (KASAM).

Abstract [en]

The concepts of coaching and empowerment have become very popular. Coaching enables people to make positive changes in their lives. The Swedish translation for empowerment is “the mobilization of power”. The aim of this study is to explore how coaching can help to promote empowerment and thereby help to increase people's health. The research investigates the following questions: What is the link between coaching and empowerment? How does empowerment improve people's health? And finally: Is it possible to increase the individual's health with coaching? The essay is based on a literature review. It analyzes the results of eleven scientific articles. The results show that empowerment and coaching have a lot in common and that both promote people's health. Coaching can improve self-confidence, self efficacy,self-esteem, self-management, coping, autonomy, empowerment, pain management, stress management, management skills and emotional intelligence. Coaching leads to a change in attitudes that facilitate lifestyle changes and improve the quality of life. Coaching encourages people sense of Coherence (SOC), which means more manageability, comprehensibility and meaningfulness in life, which leads to the conclusion that coaching is one way to do empowerment. The discussion deals with the differences between paternalism and empowerment, emotional intelligence and its importance and how coaching affects health. It discusses the relationship between mind and body; the importance of coping and how coaching promotes leadership abilities. Finally coaching is treated in the context of empowerment and the sense of coherence (SOC).
