Decades of coaching corporate organizations and their teams, Louise Evans created her 5 Chairs 5 Choices methodology.  
Additionally, the extension of the body of work created by Marshall Rosenburg in Non-Violent communication was a source of inspiration for the creation of 5 Chairs 5 Choices. More about Louise Evans and her work can be found here. 

5 Chairs 5 Choices: The red chair represents the jackal. The yellow chair is the hedgehog position. The green chair is the meerkat. The blue chair is the dolphin, and the purple chair is the giraffe.
