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.
For those new to our work: An introduction to Integral Development Coaching, with Lizzie Winn and Janeena Sims
A session specially designed to learn about our approach to coaching and experience new methods for working with yourself and clients. At the end of the session we often have time for a 30 min coaching demonstration, working with someone from the audience.
For those who’ve attended our courses: Phenomenological Listening, with Justin Wise
How can we listen and respond more skilfully and powerfully to the way of being our clients are expressing when they're with us? What happens when we stop listening to our clients - and ourselves - from the ideas we have about them, and instead listen from the midst of our lived, in the moment experience? Listening this way is foundational to integral coaching but not often talked about in depth. Join us for a morning workshop for graduates of our courses that will blend inquiry, practice, and an exploration of phenomenology - the philosophy which has had such an influence on our way of working with people - and which is intended to support you in working more skilfully with your clients, and with yourself.
For everyone: The practice of making books: a way to develop artistry, expression, and authorship in our lives, with John-Paul Flintoff
John-Paul Flintoff is a writer, journalist, coach, educator, and author whose books include How to Change the World (published with the School of Life), The Family Project: A Creative Handbook for Anyone Who Wants to Discover Their Family Story - but Doesn't Know Where to Start.
He is fascinated by the power of the hand-made as a way of expressing ourselves, making art, and becoming authors in our own unique lives. 'Making', he says, 'is a meaningful way to engage with a world in which we increasingly need machines to read things. What’s wrong with eyeballs, or fingertips (for braille)? And what can we do about it?'
In our special afternoon programme John-Paul will bring his wisdom, insight and playfulness to bear in an experiential workshop of interest to any of us who want to find new means of expressing, creating, and understanding ourselves.
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.
