LCG JUNE 2018 Newsletter

Dear All,

On Tuesday 22nd May, Michelle Lucas ran a fascinating session exploring what individual characteristics come together to make us the type of coach we are. This interactive session made use of the childhood game ‘Misfits’, with all participants creating a visual representation of each of us a coach through piecing together different characters’ body parts. We discussed the similarities and differences across how we saw ourselves, and discussed how this exercise could be done with our clients to work out what kind of leader or what type of employee they saw themselves as.  Thanks again to Michelle for delivering a fun session.       

Some Tweets from the night:
Loving our coaching styles narratives @LondonCoachGrp using these parts and being inspired to use the game for #team #coaching
Playful evening with @LondonCoachGrp, lightness of humour and depth of thinking, thank you Michelle Lucas and fellow coaches


Feedback from April event – Resourcing the Supervisee - Supervision in a Thinking Environment with Linda Aspey 
It was good to be able to try out what we had learnt from the demo.  Afterwards I was very aware of less is more
She was fantastic
Always worth time with Linda, know her subject very well, and imparts it even better

Forthcoming event: 
Tuesday 26 June 2018  (18H15 Networking – 18H30-20H00 Session)
Building a Coaching Culture for Greater Engagement with Hilary Oliver and Tracy Sinclair

In this interactive session, Hilary and Tracy will discuss what it takes to build a strong culture in organisations that can improve both employee engagement and financial performance.  They will utilise current research gathered by ICF and Price Waterhouse Cooper and will use case studies from the 2017 International Prism Awards as examples of both how cultures are created and the impact they can have on organisations.  Working in pairs/small groups, participants will be invited to think about the organisations they coach in or wish to coach in and how this research and information would support those organisations in developing coaching cultures and some of the benefits of doing so, with a view to starting to work on a model of excellence for their clients.

Book Here for Hilary Oliver and Tracy Sinclair
 
Change to Evening Event Timings: Please note that from June 2018 the main workshop sessions will commence at the slightly earlier time of 18.30 finishing at 20:00.  There will continue to be networking beforehand from 18.15 with further time still available for the networking after the session.

LCG MAY 2018 Newsletter

Dear All,

On Tuesday 24th April Linda Aspey delivered an inspiring session on Supervising in a Thinking Environment, using concepts from Nancy Kline’s work to offer a new perspective on supervision. Linda emphasised the importance of the intention behind our attention, and put forward the point that we as coaches as supervisors add more value through our attention than we do out input. Thanks for Linda for delivering an interactive and thought-provoking event.


Feedback from March event – How to use Clean Space to solve problems, generate ideas and spark creativity with Marian Way

April 2018 Newsletter

LCG APRIL 2018 Newsletter

Dear All,

Marian expertly used clean space to solve problems, generate new ideas and spark creativity for one of our members who volunteered to work with Marian through a 40 minute live demo, with lots of pauses for questions and comment. Individually everyone experienced an ‘inner’ clean space exercise, each having a different experience with the underlying theme that it was energising, gave space for clear thinking and the whole even high quality learning.

Quote from Jan Morgan:
Loved the way Marian highlighted the use of spacial metaphor.  I felt great clarity in a short spec of time.  Marions demonstration really showed how not asking about narrative, enabled powerful thinking to emerge.

If you were unable to attend the session, and would like to know more, Marian can be found at cleanlearning.co.uk

LCG FEBRUARY 2018 Newsletter

Dear All,

In February, Dr Magdalena Bak-Maier  joined as our guest speaker for The Love Paradox: how to unblock access to your best and healthiest self. It proved to be a brilliant and thought-provoking evening, with plenty of time for conversation and reflection.

We ended up with a good turnout of attendees - despite the somewhat frosty weather! As usual, it was a pleasure to welcome new attendees and see many of our regulars once again.  

 

Some tweets from the night  -    

Amazing energy in the room this evening with Magdalena @ LCG. Learning through the sharing of both knowledge and hugs! @LondonCoachGrp  

Great evening with @LondonCoachGrp @JanOBrien10 With thanks to Magdalena for an excellent workshop

I love the way the team is opening the door for every practitioner and person who feels they can enrich others in #coaching to come forward.  Please step up and apply.  We are here to share our talents and passion with others. 



Feedback from January’s event – Associate coaching work: How you get it, love it & make good money from it with Ginny Baillie 

Good event with relevant information shared by the speaker. Good start to the year and plenty of take aways! 

It was an excellent event mainly due to Ginny’s style and content. She’s a great speaker and I would happily attend other events she might be leading or speaking at. 

Thank you for a very informative session, that really helped my thinking on building associate relationships.


   
We look forward to seeing you soon,
Warm wishes.

LCG November 2017 Newsletter

Dear All,

In October, Dr Stephen Burt joined as our guest speaker for The Mystery of Coaching Mastery.  There was a real buzz in the room and people learnt so much about technique, self-expression and self-awareness.  Thank you, Stephen!

As usual, it was a pleasure to welcome new attendees and see regular ones again. 

Some tweets from the night –

Mandy Murphy@CoachMandyM  Great event with Steve. Thanks very much. Love his line ‘who we are turns up anyway’! Thanks for all your hard work keeping LCG going 

Feedback from September’s event – Art in Action in Coaching with Jenny Bird and Sarah Gornall

I would be very keen to use the Art in Action unblocking strategy for clients with whom I believe it would resonate. Thank you!
  
The session prompted me to go and invest in a large, hard back sketch pad to use in my coaching and I am about to read Jenny and Sarahs book which I bought at the event.  Many thanks.
  
Thank you so much to the organisers. I have a very busy life and coaching is a small but very important part of my life, so I really appreciate being able to occasionally attend these events, reading the newsletters and feeling part of the London coaching community.

Final event of the year: 

Tuesday 28 November 2017 (18H15-18H45 Networking – 18H45-19H45 Session - 19H45-20H15 Networking)
  
LCG - the next three years - The BIG Picture with Carolyn Hartwig, Hannah Salton, Jan Morgan and Trish Dooley 
Book Here for LCG - the next three years - The BIG Picture

As you know, we are stepping down after three years of co-chairing the LCG and Isabelle is also retiring from her role on the team.  We would personally like to thank all of you for your support.  It’s been fun and deeply rewarding!  Isabelle has been an absolute rock and we could not have done it without her (nor would we have wanted to!).  Teresa will be staying on to support the new co-chairs and we are delighted that she will be able to manage the handover and keep things ticking over as the transition takes place over the Christmas break.  Thank you, Teresa, for providing us with the stability that has enabled us to get on with our day jobs as well as running the group.
 
We look forward to seeing you to say goodbye later this month if you can join us.  As you know, the new co-chairs are stepping up and they, too, are looking forward to meeting you as they start their new journey with LCG.  Please do come along to say goodbye and hello and express your views about LCG’s priorities as plans develop for your LCG from 2018 onwards.
  
Warmest wishes,
Deborah, Kish, Isabelle & Teresa

August 2017 Newsletter

LCG August 2017 Newsletter

Dear All,

We hope you are enjoying your summer break!   

We are all enjoying a little respite before the return of our autumn schedule (details below).  LCG has been running successfully for over 15 years and, as many of you will know, Kish and Deborah stepped up to co-chair the London Coaching Group in 2015 with a three year plan in mind. Isabelle joined soon after and has been a steadfast support at events and in developing and managing our social media. As we approach the end of 2017, Deborah, Kish and Isabelle are all preparing to step down in December. This means that LCG is looking for new blood to take over the running of the group.  It is time for fresh energy and ideas to build on the great work of its leaders to date. A unique coaching group, LCG prides itself on its long history, its success (over 2000 people on its mailing list) and the warmth of its community. Supported by all of the professional bodies, ICF, AC and the EMCC, we are pleased to attract new faces to every event we run. 

We have developed an Operations Manual that sets out the processes and scheduling of the groups activities, making it straight forward to pass on. We have automated most of the processes and, with the help of a VA, you could run this on about 4 hours a month. The majority of the work is in finding and engaging speakers which happens in October.  

If you would be interested in running the group, please do let us know by September 8th. We will then introduce any prospective chairs to the group at our September event.

At the July event, we had the pleasure to welcome Jo McHale and David Evans for Taming the Toxins and Speaking from the Heart – with Nonviolent Communication (NVC). Jo and David helped us identify toxic behaviours which was playful, yet insightful. We explored how to respond with feelings and universal needs. The group exercises gave us a real feel of how powerful NVC can be.

Dear All,

Last month, we were delighted to welcome Jan OBrien as our guest speaker for Personal Leadership: Making a World of Difference. We gained a huge insight into the Personal Leadership (PL) framework which is based on mindfulness and creativity. Jans session was very interactive and the exercises helped us develop a deeper understanding of the concept. Thank you Jan!

As usual, it was a pleasure to welcome new attendees and see regular ones again

Amina Aitsi-Selms session on  Do Organisations Dream? Transformational Coaching for Social Progress was thought provoking as we explored our goals in the broader context of social progress. Drawing on her research and experience in diverse fields, Amina encouraged the group to dream, reflect and commit to actions aligned to their own purpose and make a difference in the world. It was great to see old and new faces amongst the audience. Thank you, Amina.

Dear All,

Last month, we were delighted to welcome Heather Day as our guest speaker. Heather is the only certified UK Logosynthesis trainer. Logosynthesis is literally a set of words put together to create meaning.

  
Members of the audience enjoyed the interactive exercises and worked on shifting energy in their personal space. We were amazed to learn that DNA can be reprogrammed by words and frequencies. Heather was very present and explained a complex topic with simple and meaningful terms. It was an excellent introduction to logosynthesis and gave attendees some great ways to use it as part of their coaching.
