Coaching Beyond

Are we ready to step outside our comfort zone of business as usual and integrate climate realities faced by our clients into our work and navigate a more positive future?

This course is for you if you:

  • Are a business leader, coach or supervisor who cares about climate and biodiversity and the future of our planet.
  • Have begun to realise that we have a role to play in the fragility of our planet.
  • Are likely to be feeling a discomfort and questioning you own values and purpose.
  • Are looking to explore new avenues for your coaching business aligned to your values.

The course will:

  • Provide ways of being as well as tools and techniques and insights.
  • Provide time to listen, reflect, learn and experiment together with other like-minded coaches and supervisors.
  • Leave you feeling inspired to have a greater positive impact on the world around us.
  • Support you with clear next steps for integrating this into your coaching practice and community.
  • Inspire you to act on your values and bring them into coaching and supervision conversations.
  • Allow you to be yourself in a safe space. The mastery of coaching comes with practice and experimentation.

You will discover:

  • Where you feel uncomfortable and how to stay in ‘flow’.
  • How to role model being true to your values whilst raising concerns which reflect the world around us today and for the future.

You will reflect on the following questions:

  • How do difficult, edgy conversations feel to you now?
  • What is your own response to climate change and biodiversity loss?
  • How can you bring hope and challenge whilst holding a safe space for your clients?
  • What impact does your coaching practice have on you and on others around you?

Business leaders are aware of the need to adjust their ‘business as usual’ models in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the climate and ecological crisis. Coaching, like all other service professions, is now asking itself what is needed for the profession to be ready for the future. Are we asking the right questions? How can we have a greater impact in response to what the world needs?

This course will support business leaders, coaches and supervisors working with business, government, civil society and network leaders to ask relevant systemic questions and navigate a more positive future.

Why Now?

2021 has given us all a time to reflect on whether we are relevant and future fit. What is our legacy? What is our role in service of others as coaches? As we emerge from the pandemic at different speeds in different parts of the world, we realise how interconnected and how vulnerable we all are to things outside our control. The pandemic is an early warning of what is already present in the world in the form of an unstable climate and increasing biodiversity loss.

In November 2021 – the UK is hosting the world’s most important climate summit (COP26). Some are involved in the “race to zero”. The course will not be bogged down in the “what” of the climate crisis. It will focus on how to engage in a timely manner with clients wherever they are in their awareness; and support their transition to a more life-affirming culture.
