About this Event:

Clients often commence coaching to deal with particular challenges or improve specific performance areas and these also can be opportunities for deeper growth and transformation. To celebrate the launch of Ben’s new book, Adventures in Coaching, Ben will be sharing 3 key ideas to make your coaching more transformative and bring greater depth to your work. 

This will be an interactive event involving explanation of the ideas, coaching examples, small group discussion, practical exercises and Ben will read some short passages from the book. 

In this Virtual Event you will learn:

  • The difference between practical problem solving and focusing on solutions and working with a Client’s thinking, feeling and ideas about a problem.
  • Questions to help clients separate their thinking about a situation from the actual situation.
  • When is helping not helping? How do we recognise when a coaching conversation may be disempowering a Client? How do we as coaches empower Clients and foster self-reliance instead of dependence?
  • The difference between 1st and 2nd order change and how to identify this.
  • How to create opportunities for 2nd order change and greater transformation.

Speaker Bio

Ben Dowman has degrees in Psychology and Mathematics and is as qualified teacher and NLP trainer with 20 years’ experience as a leadership consultant, coach and facilitator.  

His work is about helping people and businesses to work more effectively and improve results through leadership development, impactful facilitation and individual coaching. He is told that his work is successful because it deals with peoples' beliefs and values as well their knowledge and skills. Ben recognises the importance of peoples' conscious mindsets as well as the patterns of communication and thinking that people and organisations are often unaware of and his approach aims to balance intellectual understanding and knowledge with direct personal experience and significant 'a-ha' moments.

Ben has worked with many clients over 20 years, numerous small business that are unknown to most people and some bigger names which have included leaders and teams from O2, NHS, Network Rail, The Law Society, Lloyds Bank, Airbus Group, Vodafone, Rothschild and The UK Royal Air Force. Ben has also been lecturer at the University of Cumbria for the Masters in Coaching degree and taught on the ILM Coaching and Mentoring programme. 

His interests include cycling, swimming and rock climbing and I regularly travel in pursuit of sunshine, smooth tarmac and mountains.
