Newsletter September 2019
We hope you had a wonderful summer, and managed to enjoy some rest!
Casting your mind back before our August break, we were pleased to welcome reputable executive coach Georgina Woudstra to our event in July, who delivered a workshop on "The Art of Team Coaching".
Georgina opened the session by getting us to reconnect with our reasons for becoming a coach and it’s underpinning philosophy, continuing to reflect in small groups the different role of trainer, consultant, facilitator and coach in the context of team coaching, and the ethical dilemma but common situation when these roles crossover.
The majority of the session saw a live simulation of a team coaching session made possible by nine brave volunteers from the Group. The simulation was paused at various points to share observations from the wider group, reflecting on different aspects including the dynamics and dance amongst the team, holding the space and agenda, and drawing on the sensory data coming up for the coach.
Georgina shared her vast knowledge of this area clarifying the role of the team coach and core competencies and how this may vary through the timeline of the coaching relationship.
Thank you Georgina for creating such a participative and insightful session.
We are excited to share the events we have scheduled for the rest of 2019 below, and please watch this space as we will shortly be reaching out to ask for submissions for our 2020 workshops.
