Understanding ourselves and our own coaching style is essential before we are able to assist others. Birth order can stimulate some fascinating insights into ourselves as well as our clients. The natural leader; the fairness-oriented peacemaker, the playful buddy; the fixer of all things. Others may not respond appreciatively to our style, which often results in doing it more! And, as a result, difficulties can arise - which is often where coaches come in.

In this workshop we will explore your experience of where you came in the birth order in your family. What did you conclude about how to be in the world with others? And, as a result, what did you become good at? How aware are you of how this impacts your coaching style - and how you might adapt this for differing clients and their ‘presenting issues’?

Whether in a corporate environment, 360 follow-ups or in relationship coaching, … we will explore how to recognize classic scenarios and how to best tackle them.

This event will provide an interactive environment to practically explore the dynamics of relationships, whether these are related to corporate coaching, relationship coaching or every-day life.  Do you ever get exasperated at your coachees?  Are coaches at a loss as to why they are labelled irresponsible? Or are they always confused with life and lack direction … “life, don’t talk to me about life” 

This event is suitable for everyone. We all have relationship dynamics that can be affected by challenges that, without awareness, can be invisible to us, and that with additional insight can seem a whole lot easier to diagnose.


Rosemary Napper is a Training and Supervising Transactional Analyst, qualified in the Organisational, Educational and Counselling fields of application. As an only child, she was and remains curious about what makes people tick. TA provides some excellent maps for understanding both communication. the individual and systems. Our family system significantly impacts each of us in our own ways - and Rosemary's TA training. Supervision and practice in coaching, consulting, learning and organisational development as well as therapeutic counselling, bear this out. 

Rosemary is a TA trainer and supervisor in three separate fields of transactional analysis application: organisations, education and counselling. She is based in Oxford, and provides learning from her workshop, and also internationally: TA for coaches is an annual event in Brazil, and also regularly in India, Japan, and in different parts of Europe.

Originally working in marketing and then in Adult Learning and Development, she is particularly interested in how adults learn, and builds on ideas of Kolb and Mezirow from a TA perspective. She has authored a number of works exploring these ideas including TACTICS (2nd edition 2014 with Trudi Newton); the TA chapter in the Sage Handbook on Coaching(2nd edition 2014 also with Trudi Newton) and a chapter on coaching and the impact of organisational culture in Lifescripts (2010 ed:Erskine published by Karnac).

Rosemary has trained as a Counsellor and a psychotherapist and is also a BACP accredited counsellor, and has explored many other theoretical approaches in depth: NLP, CBT, Solutions focussed; Positive Psychology; art therapy; and so on. She is particularly interested in relational ways of working, and how the wider culture and systems influence individuals and groups, and the philosophical ideas of co-construction and emergence – all from a down to earth and practical point of view!
