·         The EU HERMES-project on coaching in Driver Education(weblink)
Hermes = High impact approach for Enhancing Road safety through More Effective communication Skills for driving instructors. HERMES is a European project (2007-2010) in which experts from 10 European countries collaborate in developing new and more effective methods for driver education.
The full output of this project is free available in German and English via this link. (DVD, Manual, Scenario’s etc.). The EU is considering translation in all EU-languages. Coaching following HERMES-principles differs sharply from the often used buzz-word coaching in top sport and competitive business: Coaching is a learner-centered method that engages body, emotions and mind to create inner and outer awareness and responsibility with an equal relationship between the learner and the coach.
