Do Organisations Dream? Transformational Coaching for Social Pro-gress.
The session will explore what it means to dream collectively and how coaching can contribute to supporting this principle at the individual and group (organizational) level through methods like backcasting.
Based on over a decade working as a doctor including in population level health (research, policy and strategy), I will share a perspective on how coaching can evolve to become a method to help individuals evolve their personal agendas to serve wider social needs.
During the workshop we will explore the global context in which we coach organisations and professionals that work within them, linking their challenges to global trends (like climate change and rising levels of chronic disease) and helping clients to find fulfilment by:
- Moving beyond individual-focused approaches to systemic approaches in coaching
- Articulating “me goals” alongside “we goals”
- Learning to deal with uncertainty and wider factors outside individual control to make career decisions aligned with the leadershipneeds of the 21st Century
Amina Aitsi-Selmi qualified as a medical doctor from Cambridge University and went on to develop a career in global public health over twelve years as a junior doctor, then consultant (NHS and independent). She has worked at local, national and international level including with the UK Department of Health, Chatham House and the United Nations as an expert operating at the science-policy interface. Her speciality areas include obesity in low- and middle-income countries and global disaster risk reduction in the context of sustainable development on which she has published widely. Eventually, her career evolved into providing Transformational Coaching for women, doctors and professionals who want to use their talents to make a difference in the new global economy. She is the lead of the Royal Society of Arts Coaching Network.
I have delivered the session “Do Organisations Dream” to an audience of managers and leaders (about 40) at the bank Societe Generale. Throughout my career, I have spoken widely at national and international level as a doctor and expert.
