Exclusively for coaches with at least two years’ experience, whether Meyler Campbell qualified or not, these brand new workshops will help you integrate a deeper understanding of a variety of selected techniques and methodologies into your coaching practice. They will be given by external experts and will be a blend of training and participative discussion of how you can apply what you’ve learned with your own clients.
The first of our brand new Masterclasses for experienced coaches looking to enhance their skills base will elaborate on the practice of relational coaching. An enabling relationship between coach and client can be taken as an essential prerequisite for effective coaching outcomes. But the term ‘relational coaching’ is used here to signify something much more radical. A foundational premise of this approach is that change and development emerge unpredictably in the coaching relationship. It challenges the view of coaching as a process of learning and applying skills in pursuit of pre-determined objectives, and puts a premium on the coach's capability to be aware of and work with the emerging relational dynamics. This workshop will explore how these ideas resonate with participants’ experience, and take some of the coaches’ current cases as a way of testing their application.
Our Master Coach for this event is Professor Bill Critchley, an organisation psychologist specialising in Top Team Development, Executive Coaching, and Complex Change. An expert in gestalt and relational coaching, Bill is the founder of the Ashridge MSc and the Ashridge Professional Doctorate in Organisation Consulting. He remains a faculty member of the Ashridge Masters in Executive Coaching and now runs his own independent consultancy, as well as being an active and experienced coaching supervisor. His main interest is in enabling people in organisations to have the lively and straightforward conversations they need to have in order to bring about useful change.
This Masterclass will immerse you in stimulating discussion and refresh your coaching toolkit. Bill describes ‘the interaction between two people as a crucible for change’: his Masterclass will be a crucible for learning, so come along and see what refinements you can make to your coaching work as a result!
