About this Event

Do you need to be like me in order to coach me? with Sheldon Daniel & Lizzie Cho

Please note: This event is open to anyone with an interest in Business Coaching and/or Leadership Development.

Virtual Connecting: Following this webinar, there will be an extra 30 minutes added to the session for an opportunity to virtually connect with your fellow attendees.

Engaging with “diversity” can be fraught with uncertainty and generate cynicism. However, the issue is becoming a critical issue for the modern leader especially since it is increasingly shown that there is a link between top-line financial performance and a more diverse company leadership (McKinsey & Company (2018), Delivering through Diversity).

But whilst acknowledging the importance of diversity on the leadership agenda – is it, or should it, be an issue that impacts the coaching relationship and effectiveness? Can a man coach a woman on “any issue”? Is a white man the “best” coach for an expatriate black African C suite executive? Should a gay man coach a gay client? Does this really matter when coaching is a client-focused, clean listening process that aims to move away from focus on coaches' subjective experience?

This webinar session with Meyler Campbell Alumni Sheldon Daniel & Lizzie Cho will help attendees explore these views and encourage more expansive thinking on these questions. Their fundamental aim will be to show attendees that, considering diversity within the coaching relationship matters – and coaches need to reflect and make conscious their own relationship with various elements of difference if they are to manage the issues effectively with clients.

Sheldon & Lizzie will offer an interactive session focused on helping attendees become more aware of the issues that might arise and develop some practical tips on how to handle the challenge of structural differences between yourself and clients.

Attendees should come ready to be challenged, share, explore and maybe even have some fun – all the while learning by listening from a "different" perspective.

Sheldon Daniel brings to coaching over 20 years of corporate experience of operating with energy multi-national companies on strategic communications, external affairs and reputation management. A former Director of Corporate Responsibility at BP Group, he is a proud ‘product’ of the Caribbean, with an understanding of corporate UK. Using his multi-disciplinary disposition and experience, Sheldon helps individuals think differently about thorny issues in leadership and communications - delivered in a flexible style that can be direct, humorous and creative. As a coach, Sheldon prides himself on addressing the challenging leadership issues - by asking the questions that reveal the unsaid, unconscious and uncomfortable - with a different ‘voice’.

Lizzie Cho is CEO of London-based charity Nova New Opportunities and undertakes a variety of Board roles. Lizzie is driven by a passion to work with those on the margins and talented outliers to achieve their potential and shine. Within her leadership roles, Lizzie focuses on developing the emotional competence and effectiveness of the individuals, teams and organisations whilst managing the complex and commercial realities of a business with the compassion and empathy of the purpose driven environment.
