The article deals with the scientific discussion on coaching in the business context. On the one hand, the need for qualified human capital is increasing; on the other hand, the possible requirement profiles of employees are becoming more and more extensive. Given the prevailing framework conditions in human resource development, a need for action in terms of innovative approaches can be assumed. The number one success factor is and remains the human being. The main purpose of this research paper is therefore to investigate to what extent the topic of "piracy" can be implemented as a complementary approach in coaching processes for business and management. The relevance of this problem is that there is insufficient scientific literature on innovative approaches to coaching and thus a need for new impulses can be assumed. From the author's point of view, integration is therefore possible, as almost everyone is likely to have a positive association with the topic of pirates. For the research, a literature search was first conducted. In the subsequent conceptual work, an approach was developed to embed and apply the context of pirates in existing established coaching elements, such as the Logical Levels (according to Robert Dilts), goal work or the theme of values. The results and practical implications of this contribution are concrete approaches to make the potential of this approach recognizable and usable.
