You can link to the coaching advisor content from a textarea field in either development goals or learning activities:

When clicking on this link, the window that appears shows the competencies for the employee's role, which the user can then drill down on to find coaching advisor content to include in the text field (like the coaching advisor behavior on a review form):

To enable/disable linking to coaching advisor content you would need to engage your Implementation Partner or open a request with Cloud Product Support via incident (Component LOD-SF-CDP-SCR), as it will require a Configuration Change in the XML code of your Development Plan or Learning Activity templates.
