Setting the Brain to work in Coaching
Like the rest of the known universe, human beings are essentially energy systems. From this perspective, coaching is about how to get energy flowing. This has profound implications for the practice of coaching because it directs attention to aspects of individual that have not previously had a scientific frame of reference.
This webinar series offers an introduction to this new knowledge and how it can be used. Participants will see how they can bring such knowledge and neuroscience into strengthening their own coaching practice.
Speaker: Dr Paul Brown, Clinical and Organisational Psychologist, Executive Coach and Supervisor
Dates: Tuesdays, 2nd, 16th and 30th April 2019
Coaching Leaders for Purpose
Today’s VUCA world requires different leaders, those who are Ethical, and Authentic as well as Radical (embracing change) and also Caring. We call this type of leader, a “Transpersonal Leader”.
This webinar series opens a pathway for coaches to experience their own journey to model transpersonal approaches, in order to enable clients to become excellent 21st century leaders who are able to lead in a VUCA world. It offers a high level of interaction and reflection with some practical tools to generate insights for both coaches and their clients.

Dates: Thursdays, 2nd, 9th, 16th and 23rd May 2019
Mapping Motivation for Engagement
Engagement strategies enable people to be the best they can be at work leading to increased performance, productivity, and profitability. But this can only happen if they feel involved, well-led and valued by those they work for. Developing the right attitudes, behaviours and outcomes are intrinsic to employee motivation and engagement.
If coaches, trainers, consultants and businesses have a framework and a tool kit for mapping motivation then they have an opportunity to create the right type of environment to harness the full potential and capability of employees, to drive success in an organization.
Speaker: Steve Jones, MD of Skills for Business Training Ltd.
Dates: Tuesdays, 4th, 18th June and 2nd, 16th July 2019
Ontological coaching is an approach that focuses more on the who than the what, more on the being of the coachee than their goals, for the sake of supporting clients in achieving sustainable transformation.
In this webinar series, we will be exploring the three core components of this structure of interpretation – language, body and emotions – and how to work with our clients to help them transform in each of those three domains.
Speaker: Aboodi Shabi, Lecturer in Coaching and Behavioural Change, Henley Business School
Dates: Thursdays, 27th June, 11th & 25th July and 8th August 2019

Motivational Mapping for Coaching
Motivational Maps provide an insight not only into what motivates individuals in their career, they shed light on potential internal conflict interfering with the clarity of direction and they also highlight potential mis-understanding with those with different motivational preferences.
During this webinar, our Coach, Bevis Moynan, will use a live example of a client’s using a motivational map to help both inform career clarity going forwards and also shed light as to the use of motivational maps as part of the beginning of a coaching journey.
Current statistics shed light on the value of this approach with 64% of people leaving their boss rather than their job (Forbes) and over 60% of people disengaged within work (Gallup).
Speaker: Bevis Moynan, Director of Magenta Coaching Solutions

Collaborative Conversations with Masters: The Power of Reflection
A leader today is faced with a range of conflicting demands on their time and can often struggle with priorities and paradoxical messages about what is important. Coaches can support them by building their resilience and shaping their coping strategies, one of which is the use of reflection. Increasing numbers of prominent leaders are proactively “pressing the pause button” during their working week citing the activity as a key productivity tool.
This webinar will focus on how to build resilience and outline how reflection can become a powerful tool. You will have access to the latest research from Henley Business School on how reflection can support leaders and a case study on how a group of Operational managers responded to a period of regular reflection
