22 November 2016: Developing Your Coaching Model

Coaching effectiveness is enhanced when coaches hold a clear model and approach to coaching (without forcing this on their clients).  Whilst coaches may undergo similar training this is assimilated alongside the beliefs, experience and preferences that make us all unique. Consequently no two coaches are the same and we suggest that each coach has their own unique coaching model (whether they know it or not).

Our CPD event seeks to celebrate diversity in coaching and offers a framework for coaches to uncover and develop their coaching identity and approach. We offer three of many distinct coaching approaches to highlight diversity and support reflection and development of coaching practice.  

25 November 2016: EMCC Creating Quality Thinking Space

The aim of the event is to consider the question “How do we develop independent thinking to enhance performance?” Participants are introduced to the ten components of a Thinking Environment and consider the value they can bring to a variety of situations. Opportunities will be offered for participants to experience the creation of a quality thinking space with their peers.

Inspired by Nancy Kline, Karen Mason will facilitate an event giving you the opportunity to consider and experience how to create a quality space in which your clients can do their best thinking.

During this experiential CPD event you will:

  • Consider key attributes for creating a quality Thinking EnvironmentTM, useful when coaching, mentoring, in meetings or in your wider work and life.

  • Experience quality thinking time to develop thoughts about a topic that is important to you.

  • Practice your coaching / mentoring and create a quality thinking space for your client.

There will be opportunity for peer coaching / mentoring, to work with live topics and explore how developing a Thinking Environment can make a positive impact in your workplace.
