A day-long event open to all.
In the morning there are parallel sessions for those new to Integral Development Coaching and those who've already attended our training. After lunch, both groups join together in an enlivening exploration on the special topic of the day.
We invite you to join us if:
- You’re curious about coaching, particularly our developmental approach to coaching, and wish to bring it into your work or life as a coach, consultant, leader, or coaching client.
- You’re thinking about joining a professional coach training programme and would like to meet faculty and graduates, and get a strong ‘inside’ feel of the nature and topics of our courses in integral development.
- You’re interested in the lasting development of people – yourself or others.
- You’re a current student or graduate of any of our programmes – and you’d like to connect with others and continue your learning.
An introduction to Integral Development Coaching
A session specially designed to help you find out if our approach to coaching is a good fit for you and learn new methods for working with yourself and clients.
This session begins with an interactive presentation on the work of Integral Development Coaching, during which you are welcome (and encouraged) to participate with questions and discussion. At the end we often have time for a thirty-minute coaching demonstration, working with someone from the audience (perhaps you’ll want to volunteer to be coached).
Afternoon: A special afternoon workshop on 'Exploring Spontaneity' with Tracy Elster
To be fully present and freely express ourselves in the moment is a rare and wonderful phenomenon, in a world where so much is scheduled and there is a pressure to be productive. How can we give ourselves permission to just ‘be’ whilst staying open and responsive to our environment?
The workshop provides a safe space to let go, play, express and connect more deeply with ourselves and others. As professional performer and Dramatherapist, Tracy Elster calls on both her performance experience and mindfulness techniques to facilitate spontaneity and release,using an array of exercises including improvisation, imagination and play. The workshop will include body work, creative expression and Meisner Technique (an acting method which encourages impulsiveness and responsiveness in equal measure).
When & Where
An integral approach to coaching
Our integral approach to coaching is a powerful way of working with people that aims to make a pragmatic and profound contribution to individuals, organisations and society. Our coaches become skilled at working with clients in a way which frees them up to bring their intentions into their work and wider life with dignity, humanity and skilfulness.
