Topic : Integrating the art of visual coaching into your coaching conversation.

Approximate 80% of the world's population use visual as their primary sense making mechanism. Before we learn our letters as a child, everything is a visual. Even as an adult, as we move into the creative parts of our brain for goal setting, sense-making, etc, most of us see images in our minds' eyes.

What if that inherent visual ability of the human psyche can be worked into your coaching practices? How will it look like? How much further will your client be able to go, if he/she is able to communicate thoughts and ideas otherwise challenging to put into words?

Visual Coaching encompasses the integration of visual tools into your current coaching methodologies that potentially brings about richer and deeper dialogue with your clients, that goes beyond breakthroughs limited to using just words in regular sessions.

Take away & learning outcomes:

  • Awareness of the power of visuals in coaching
  • Basic iconology and visual metaphor usage
  • "Live" visual coaching experiments with one another
  • Tips & tricks to get you started.

COP: Parent Coaching-Finding our unique Parenting Solutions

Coaching for Parenting is a Community of Practice support group designed for coaches seeking to bring coach-like approach into their relationship with children and themselves as parents.

The demands of juggling personal, professional and family obligations combined with an increase in social isolation and expectations, have led to a need for greater support for parents. Often stock answers offered by many parenting programs feel inadequate to really shift the dynamics at home.

What if there was a way to communicate to our children without the need to ‘control’? What if there was a way to inspire responsibility in children from within? What if there was a way for parents to reprogram our own minds at a deep level so that the way we think of our children and parenting shifts from within?

Coaching for Parenting aims to explore these questions with a heartfelt aim to create greater peace, freedom, and choices for families, and to truly clarify and live through shared family values and goals.

Join us to be a part of a support group where we can develop our parenting through a structured coach-like approach. This CoP is facilitated by Halbert & Avni, who will draw upon their personal experience as parents and coaches, to create a safe environment of learning and mutual support. The first session aims to share:

  • the purpose, expectations and agreements for participation
  • the approach and road-map of Coaching for Parenting CoP
  • and understand your vision of parenting and answer your questions

We look forward to meeting you to engage in a deep learning journey!
