Event description
Expand and build your compassion skills and cultivate it through coaching practice to enhance behavioural change and wellbeing.

About this event

Join Hilary McLellan and Dr Ashleigh McLellan to enhance and build on compassion in coaching practice.

Developing your Compassionate Mind

In a world where behavioural change is no longer a choice but a daily demand, we are all likely to experience increased anxiety and stress as uncertainty plays a greater part in all our lives and the lives of our clients.

The research and psychological evidence of developing a compassionate mind for increased wellbeing and performance is well documented but primarily applied in the world of clinical psychology.

Hilary and Ashleigh have worked together to create this unique two day online course for Coaches as an opportunity to build on the knowledge and experience of our Entry Level Workshop.

Who is this training for?

All coaches, mentors and supervisors who coach for behavioural change and want to build on their skills gained in our previous Entry Level Workshops.

What is it about?

Regularly the biggest challenge faced in behavioural change is our own self-critic, what it says, how it says it and the values and beliefs it forms in our deeply set unconscious behavioural habits. The first step is to release our ability to bring about the change we want. This happens when we develop a compassionate mind.

Compassionate, people-centred leaders are ahead of the game and at the forefront of developing the new generation of competitive advantage. Far from being ‘soft and fluffy' or a weakness, compassion guides leaders to be courageous, strong and emotionally intelligent.

Day one

We support and guide you in a safe environment to:

Explore and deepen your understanding of the principles of compassion.

Share and build learning around what we understand makes us uncomfortable, anxious, scared or shameful.

Take part in further experiential learning, using psychological models and exercises to develop your own self-compassion.

Reflect upon the impact of this learning and how you want to present yourself as a coach, mentor and/or supervisor.

Day two

We support and guide you in a safe environment to:

Share learning and build further steps you can take to cultivate compassion through your coaching practice.

Develop your authentic approach to compassion focused coaching.

Practice coaching using a selection of the models and exercises from day one.

Reflect upon the impact of your learning and your practice as a compassion focused coach, mentor and/or supervisor.

Fee includes PDF pack of course materials and follow up webinar to help you embed your practice.

This is the second of two Compassion Focused Coaching Workshops - our Entry Level option takes place in September 2021.

To continue to find ways to support coaches during these uncertain times, we are proud to be committed to healthy online learning.

Accordingly, we will contract with you to ensure regular breaks and give full permission for you to stand and move about during the sessions.
