Systemic Coaching: Delivering Value Beyond the Individual
Coaching has achieved a great deal over the last forty years in terms of individual personal benefit, but going forward it needs to focus more on how it delivers value beyond the individual coachee to all the coachee’s stakeholders.
Professor Peter Hawkins has been one of the leading pioneers of Systemic Coaching, Coaching Supervision, and Systemic Team Coaching. His new book with Eve Turner “Systemic Team Coaching - Delivering Value Beyond the Individual” (published by Routledge in December 2019), has received acclaim from many of the world’s leading coaches as well as organizational clients. Peter runs training in Systemic Coaching and Systemic Team Coaching all around the world from China to America and from South Africa to Scandinavia.
The webinar series will present the approach and models for working systemically as a coach, including multi-stakeholder contracting, ways of bringing the stakeholder and ecological focus into the coaching work and ways of using supervision and evaluation to ensure maximum impact from coaching. The series will be highly interactive with the opportunity to ask questions before, during and after each webinar.
Speaker: Dr. Peter Hawkins, Professor of Leadership at Henley Business School, Chairman of Renewal Associates and President of Academy of Executive Coaching.
Dates: Thursdays, 6th, 27th February and 19th March 2020
ACT Based Coaching
Many of our clients’ problems arise as a result of them getting stuck in their thinking, their avoidance of unwanted thoughts, feelings and sensations, their lack of clarity over what really matters, and some of the unhelpful beliefs they hold and the stories they tell themselves about themselves. This is known as psychological inflexibility.
Our clients quality of life, health, wellbeing, and performance may be significantly improved if we can help them develop, and apply, the skills of unhooking themselves from their thinking, allowing and accepting (not necessarily liking) their feelings and sensations, taking committed action in line with their values, whilst spending more time in the present moment with the ability to see their life from the perspective of the observing self (in contrast to their narrative self). This state is known as psychological flexibility.
In this webinar series we will provide an introduction and overview of how to help your clients – and yourself – cultivate and apply more psychological flexibility.
Speaker: Dr. Tim Anstiss, Director of the Academy for Health Coaching; Doctor, Trainer, and Educator
Dates: Tuesdays, 26th November, 3rd, 10th, and 17th December 2019
