The article presents the role of trust in coaching treated as a systemic intervention in an organization. The author refers to the thesis that all organizations are dynamic systems striving for a balance between stability and change. In the author’s opinion, the balance in the human system is maintained by specific „energy” which takes an informational-emotional form in this case.
