Coaching Challenges Workshop (half day)

For practicing coaches

In this innovative workshop, Coaching Challenges draws on cutting edge practices from the field of Generative Coaching to boost your coaching practice. It builds practical coaching skills that takes any group of coaches to a more advanced level of skill and understanding. Coaches will be introduced to the key elements of generative coaching including 'coach state' and bringing more presence and increased self-awareness to their coaching practice. 

As any practising coach knows, all sorts of questions and conundrums arise during coaching conversations with clients.

This half-day workshop for groups of experienced coaches explores a wealth of coaching challenges, such as:

  • What to do when the client doesn't have very clear outcomes
  • What to do if the client says someone else needs to change?
  • How to move the client out of content and story and connect with their deeper aspirations  
  • How to manage a client who doesn't seem committed to their coaching outcomes
  • What do you do if the client says nothing’s improving?
  • How to bring coaching back when it goes off piste during a session
  • The above are examples of what can be covered.  We will tailor the workshop to the needs and suggestions of workshop participants.

We work with:

- Discussion of points of principle and practice

- Demonstrations of cases

- Rehearsals to explore possibilities

The result is a rich mixture of answers and insights into the challenges that occur either regularly or sometimes spectacularly in any coaching practice.
