This article reports on a phenomenological study that examined middle managers beliefs about organisational coaching and their coaching practices. The study also investigated middle managers’ conclusions, drawn from the relationship between these two objects. Two unstructured in-depth interviews based on participants’ coaching experience were conducted with each of four middle managers who came from different Lithuanian corporate organisations. The article provides a more thorough understanding of middle managers’ views about their own beliefs and their coaching practices. It is expected that managers of all levels and those who provide coaching training in organisations, would benefit from this study.
