Narratives of Practice: Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging in Coaching
What are the narratives that influence your practice? How is your narrative and practice changing in response to the diversity that you encounter? Executive coaching is a global practice that is growing across geographical, cultural, social, political, and socio-economic borders. As practitioners, we have an opportunity to look more deeply at our practice and ask ourselves broader questions. Where do our frames of practice arise? How is diversity present or excluded in our practice and research? What are we noticing or learning from the diversity we encounter in clients, teams and systems? What is the impact of diversity on the dynamics of the coaching relationship or presence of the coach? This session will explore our diversity experiences, individual and collective learning, and the potential implications for coaching practice and research.
1. Share experiences around diversity and learn from the experience of others;
2. Reflect upon the impact of diversity on the dynamics of the coaching relationship, and presence of the coach; and
3. Consider how diversity generates or challenges professional development.
