January's Forum with Claire Pearce
New Year - create your theme - writing workshop
I've been running writing workshops for the last 2 years and really enjoy encouraging and inspiring people to write.
My New Year workshop is where it all began, about 10 years ago when I got my friends around to create our themes for the year. Now I've developed the workshop and incorporated more writing exercises into it and offer it more broadly. No-one needs any experience, knowledge, or even interest in writing as all exercises are guided.
The workshop isn't about resolutions or goals, it's more about capturing a feeling or a tone - our theme - that can guide our decisions in the year ahead and help us feel that, whilst we may not always be behind the wheel, we're at least in the front of the car.
The workshop consists of writing exercises, reflecting and sharing whay we've written (always optional) with each other. Workshops are intended to be (and always are) fun, encouraging and supportive.
As well as facilitating workshops I coach people and write. I publish a blog which keeps me moving forward and developing my writing.
Co-coaching provides an opportunity to reflect on your coaching style and to experience and experiment with new coaching techniques. It is a three way learning opportunity:
- Being coached by others
- Observing others being coached
- Coaching others on their coaching technique
- Gain multiple perspectives from a range of coaches
- Professional network of options and shared strategies
- Access to overlapping and distinct expertise
- Create a better foundation to coaching
You can discover an amazing range of coaching methods and styles that have developed to satisfy different needs and circumstances, and so benchmark your own practice.
The forum is open to members of the Association for Coaching with any level of coaching experience. Non-members can attend up to three sessions as an introduction.
The forum offers the opportunity to meet others who work within a range of professional coaching roles. Our meetings are used to network, share ideas and experience whilst learning from one another. This offers the opportunity to;
- Be coached by others
- Observe others being coached
- Being the coach
- Receiving and giving feedback
Our meetings typically include an introduction and group discussion which is followed by small group work in which we rotate to use our practical coaching skills, act as a coachee and provide reciprocal feedback. Through this process, we can reflect on our own and our peers coaching practice whilst developing new approaches to our work.
Participating in Co-coaching will give you:
- A CPD certificate for each forum you attend
- Access to a network of like-minded people to share ideas and resources
- A 'super-view' of your coaching practice
