The way coaching has been dominantly practiced for the past forty years is a symptom of an instrumental and reifying logic that prevails in organizations and society today. We believe that it can be otherwise, and that coaching can also be a remedy to support a more sustainable society. In that perspective, this article draws on various sociophilosophical movements, including that of the sociologist and philosopher Rosa, to offer a frame of reference for the examination of relational ethics in coaching. Through this analysis, we propose to distance ourselves from coaching practices centered on the protection and fight of egos in order to consider a practice of “coaching the unavailable,” which revises the orders for visibility, mastery, reachability, and usability. In sum, this paper is an invitation to pursue a subtle equilibrium in coaching, between a relationship of control of, and resonance with, the world.
