Shadow Coaching® is a coaching method by which the coach is present but does not intervene, they simply observe the operations or working situations in which the learning partner  is involved. Once that operation or situation has ended, the coach provides feedback  on what they have observed, often in line with the specific topics the two are tackling in their coaching relationship. Operating this way – “in the heat of the moment” – often proves highly effective in terms of understanding and learning. It is a Donna Karlin registered trademark.
