Coaching Through Transition Through The Lens of NLP
This session will add to your existing coaching toolkit by sharing, exploring, and reflecting on how different Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques can support you when working with clients around trust, resilience, and well-being. Key areas to explore will include how to grow and maintain trust in ever more complex, fast-changing environments where the boundaries of home, work, organisations, and systems seem to be blurring. We will also look at how clients can be supported to transition from self and organisation to system, creating a sense of belonging at a larger scale. For more information please click here.
Introduction to coaching skills for managers
The aim of this workshop is to give managers some simple tools and thoughts that will help them adopt a coaching approach to managing their people. On the global stage of leadership and management, coaching is firmly recognised as a must-have skill set for any leader. The benefits of coaching include greater employee engagement, increased motivation, reduction in health and safety incidents, increased productivity, greater overall efficiency, and many other benefits that are widely reported. Within this workshop, we look to make the art of coaching simple and accessible for managers, but also relevant to the life of a manager. This is not a coaching course – it is a manager development course that looks at coaching. For more information please click here.
CPD Coaching for Wellbeing
Coaching leaders and practitioners in health and social care is important and sensitive work, and never more so than as we come to terms with the global pandemic. The nature and purpose of coaching relationships and conversations are arguably shifting for both coach and coachee. This virtual workshop provides protected ‘headspace’ and ‘thinking time’ for you in a peer group of coaches to explore current and emerging challenges and possibilities in your coaching practice.

Coaching Skills Refresher for Coaches Masterclass
In the workshop, you will get the opportunity to pose the questions and dilemmas you have faced whilst you have been coaching. We will work on some of the myths in the coaching system that suggest coaching has to be complex. In fact, we will experiment with the simplicity of coaching, which is actually the coach’s best friend in relation to succeeding with transformational conversations for your client.
