Coach-Ing methodology is intended to support new generations of engineers. The aim of Coach-Ing is to provide tools, scenarios, and strategies that contribute to their individual training and to the collective training within the profession. The Coach-Ing methodology has been experimented and statistically validated by means of a large number of on-the-field activities, which have been conducted at the Council of Engineers of the Province of Rome and in some of the most important European high tech enterprises working in the Defence sector.

Coach-Ing blends the strategies of traditional coaching with the systematic and programmatic approach of engineering, culminating in a non-conventional model allowing the development of new creative and innovative abilities. The method guarantees to recognize the same level of the participants without any difference in approach, neither as a function of origin, sex, age, previous experiences. The experimentation allowed the identification of important results in a large number of samples, in terms of adaptability to new social contexts, new work environments, changes in professional paths, greater awareness of one’s role, and strengthening of individual qualities. Numerical indicators will be illustrated and discussed, which have allowed us to evaluate and quantify - always at a statistical level - the improvement found during Coach Ing processes to find the best way for their life project. By means of Coach-Ing, Engineering and Coaching co-operate to create innovative, individual and collective, solutions.
