What are the Benefits of the Whole Part Whole Methodology?

The question this week comes from Alan, and was submitted in the lead up to a PDP Members Webinar.

“In your experience what are the differences (pro/cons) of the whole part whole methodology. USA coach education is moving away from simple to complex, good/bad?”

Structure of the discussion

  • What is meant by whole-part-whole?
  • Benefits of it? Limitations?
  • What is meant/implied by simple and complex sessions?
  • Other session structures?
  • Planning your week/month to offer variety
