    The present paper deals with the question how coaching influences personal development. It is based on theoretical principles of narrative and neurolinguistic coaching and the synergetic generic principles of theory of complexity. The narrative and NLP coaching model is described considering six criteria: basic features and assumptions, principles, goals and tasks in the coaching process, competences, skills, features and role of the coach, interventions and criteria of success of the process. It focuses on the comparison of similarities and differences of narrative and NLP model, as they are described and compared in detail. By indentifiying their similarities and differences the understanding of their characteristics is deepened, which gives us the basis for the implementation of the models in practice. In the empirical part the study case of five processes reveals the usage of interventions. The verbatims of the most typical sessions are analysed according to the synergetic generic principles. The purpose of the empirical part is to discover the impact of coaching on various areas of personal development of the clients (self-esteem, relationships, education and work). Furthermore, it shows the key elements, characteristics and interventions of coaching process, which contribute to the changes and shifts in the personal development of the clients. Moreover, in the empirical part I deal with the question which characteristics and interventions of narrative and NLP coaching contribute to the effects of coaching and what the synergetic analysis of verbatim shows about the process of the clients' personal development. Qualitative method of analysis of coaching sessions is applied as five study cases as well as the evaluation of the processes by clients and coach. The assembled data contributes to the analysis of clients' personal development in the processes of co-creative coaching in integrative model. Research reveals that the integrative model of narrative, NLP coaching and synergetic generic principles present the effective and holistic approach to personal development. Namely, all five clients have improved their self-esteem, deepened close relationships and they have become more efficient at work or in school. Changes and shifts in their development have been caused by many factors. However, the crucial one is the trustworthy relationship between the coach and the client and also the narrative and NLP interventions applied according to the synergetic generic principles. In conclusion, the integrative model contributes to the conscious personal development, as all three approaches are intertwined and are therefore even more efficient than each of them separately.
