The term intervention is derived from the Latin word »inter-venire« which means "to intervene, (to step in between), to interfere, to interrupt, to interpose, to mediate."

Interventions are specific remarks or actions on the part of the consultant that are aimed at bringing the client (the company, the department, the team, the coachee) closer to her goal. In conjunction with a change process, interventions also include all measures (training seminars, workshops, statements of the board, processes, assessment tools, etc.) that are being taken in order to reach the goal.
