Coach Yourself First- A coachs guide to self-reflection

Times: 18h15 Registration and Networking

18h30 Session begins and finishes at 20h00


As a new coach beginning to practice at the turn of the millennium I was enthused by the thought of a lifelong learning journey in my chosen profession. I developed my approach to self-reflection over many years of reading, researching and academic leaning which culminated in an MA in applied coaching. I found  excellent generic books on the topic of self- reflection and specific chapters in coaching books by thought leaders in the profession. However I could not find any book which specifically focused on guiding coaches and coach supervisors in developing their ability to self- reflect using a variety of creative approaches. This was the embryonic catalyst for my book upon which this interactive, experiential learning workshop is based. 

My hope for participants is that they can see a link between the theory relating to reflective learning and the content of the workshop and this enables them to consider their own journey of self-reflection in their practice. I will share tools and techniques which aim to provide practical guidance, tools and techniques which match a variety of learning styles. This will be an experiential learning workshop with opportunities for the audience to try out a variety of creative self-reflection approaches. My expectation is that the workshop will enable fellow coaches to learn more reflectively and become better practitioners in the service of their clients. Specifically participants will learn how to use creative approaches and tools to support their individual journey of self-reflection.
