Coaching with Creative Problem Solving Tools – including ‘The Unsticker’

Peter was so well received in the workshops he ran for the Coaching Conference, that we are running this masterclass in response to popular demand!

In this masterclass, Peter Freeth will be sharing a number of projective techniques, both artistic and physical, that you can use in a wide range of situations, from one to one coaching sessions through to corporate development events, to bring a new angle and a new sense of magic to your work.

You will leave with a new set of tools and approaches to try, including a free pocket ‘Unsticker’ and your own personal mandala to take away, as well as a deeper understanding of what it really is that makes a question ‘powerful’ and gives you, as a coach, your greatest potential to effect lasting change in your clients.

Coaching Supervision: who needs it and how to provide it in your organisation

The EMCC, along with all major coaching bodies, recognises that the purpose of supervision is to enhance the wellbeing and develop the practice of coaches of all levels of experience. Supervision provides confidential space and time for coaches to step back and reflect on their work, to make sense of what is happening for them and their clients in their complex work situations, and to gain greater clarity to inform ongoing coaching.

This participative workshop will help you explore different models of supervision so that you can decide what will suit the needs of your organisation, your coaches and your budget. You may decide to access the professional supervision on offer through EELGA and/or set up an internal peer supervision group.

Who should attend?
Anyone involved in coaching within their workplace, whether as an internal coach, a commissioner of coaching, or an L&D specialist.
