Event description

Description

“You’ve made me realise I can do things. Just by making me think about it.”

A heart-warming yet not unusual piece of feedback from a coaching client. But this client was a prison inmate at the time.

Coaching in prison – does it get more extreme than this? Yet Clare McGregor, founder of the charity Coaching Inside and Out and author of Coaching Behind Bars, maintains that coaching inmates of prisons is very similar to coaching executives in boardrooms, albeit in more punishing circumstances. The familiar techniques of overturning assumptions, exploring strengths and values, and setting goals can bring about extraordinary transformations and rekindle hope even in such a bleak environment. This thought-provoking and entertaining event will be a combined format of presentation, storytelling, discussion and questions. Clare will challenge your assumptions about who coaching can work for and the session is guaranteed to push you out of your comfort zone and to stretch your approach to coaching.

Clare McGregor is a Cambridge classics graduate who now knows there’s more potential in any one of our prisons than in an Oxbridge college. She began working on social inclusion for clients including the Department of Health, the Home Office and Ministry of Justice. Then, after 25 years developing services for people in crisis, she focused her energy on coaching prisoners and those at risk of offending. Clare is the founder of Coaching Inside and Out, a social enterprise committed to unlocking the potential of men and women within the criminal justice system. For further background on Clare and her work see this Guardian article.

Clare did a similar event for us a few years ago. Here’s what people thought of it!

The overall story is inspiring as she made a big change in her life to help women in prison. Her style of delivery is honest and transparent. Really enjoyed the successes stories.”

“One of my favourites ever. Clare was compelling in the way she told her story. Loved it.”
