Event description
A programme for coaches who want to guide online clients to develop a new intelligence in Nature.

About this event

Coaching leaders outdoors brings new insights, embodied change and clarity about what's most important. The dynamic experience of working in Nature deepens the coaching inquiry. It connects with our somatic, collective and spiritual intelligence. Sustainable change happens in an inspired way.

Online working and the scale of challenges we are all facing makes that outdoor experience more important than ever. But how do you do outdoor coaching when you can't walk out together? Outdoor Intelligence for Online Coaching is a 9-week programme that shows you how.

What you'll get

You'll learn how to guide clients in developing their own practice of working outside that becomes a bridge into the coaching session. It extends their coaching experience beyond the one-to-one conversation. That means you can offer clients a unique online experience.

What you'll get is

  • A one-to-one 1/2 hour session with Fi in which to explore and plan how to integrate this into your coaching practice.
  • Confidence in setting up and managing a 6 session coaching relationship, working with the outdoors. During the online sessions, you'll have a peer coaching relationship in which to coach and be coached using an outdoor practice.
  • Experience working with a range of approaches for the clients to develop their own insights during time outside.
  • Opportunity to work with your own practice working outdoors.
  • Collaborative peer-learning to develop the programme material.
  • Your own coaching with a peer coach to experience your own outdoor intelligence.
  • Participation in the Outdoor Intelligence monthly book club.
  • Participation in the Outdoor Intelligence monthly Council - a 1.5 hour session to deepen your connection with this work.

What participants have said about it

‘Fi’s passion and enthusiasm shone through at every session and created a really special space for the eight of us to share and explore this way of experiencing human development. A powerful experience that I have introduced into my coaching process and way of working. During the programme we were immersed in nature whilst working remotely from each other online, experiencing what we are encouraging our clients to experience.’ Darren Hilton, Tapping the Source.

'As someone who has worked in the environmental sphere for most of my career, the programme transformed my approach to coaching. It has enabled me to embrace the wider wisdom of natural systems and tune into the restorative enlargement that nature offers ... with a deeper, holistic, resonance. I loved it and would absolutely recommend to anyone who is curious about bringing the outdoors into their coaching practice.' Catherine Andrews, Executive Coach.

How it works

5 x weekly 2.5 hour online sessions 10-1230 GMT starting Wednesday 5th May 2021. Sessions are held every other week. During these sessions you will

  • An interactive briefing on a themed aspect of coaching outdoors. This will be recorded and posted in our online space.
