Q&A Coaches Corner - June 2019

 Q&A Coaches Corner

We are delighted to introduce our new feature of Q&A Coaches Corner. We are starting with Dr Sarah Hill who leads our workshop next week on Tuesday 25th June. She has provided further insight into what lies behind her coaching and the profundity of working through the Childhood Story. 

  1.      Who or what inspired you to become a coach?

Sarahs A: Working as a Dialogue Facilitator leading cultural change interventions in UK prisons and experiencing at first hand the toll managing change in that environment took on its leaders but also seeing what a coaching relationship with them enabled were a huge motivation for me. My experience working with one particular Prison Governor inspired me to continue on a pathway towards becoming a Dialogic Coach. I was both incredibly challenged and wonderfully invigorated. I definitely found my calling. 

  1.      What is your favourite thing about being a coach?

Sarahs A : It’s the profundity of playing a part in enabling truly transformational change that liberates and redeems old stuck patterns of behaviour, which otherwise cause harm to the individual, team or system.  

  1.      What is the thing you find the most challenging as a coach?

Sarahs A : Endings can sometimes be challenging because my coaching model is a relational one and this provides the foundation for the work. There is a deep knowing that leads to a depth of connection such that when the time comes to draw the work to a close I can experience the feelings of loss associated with ending quite deeply. I’ve learned how to manage this well over the years but it impacts nevertheless.

  1.      What’s the biggest lesson you have learnt in recent years?

Sarahs A : The biggest learning for me in recent years has been recognising the importance of being willing to roll up my sleeves and go to work on Self in order to really be in service of others in coaching. Knowing myself broadly and deeply has been critical in being able to really go there with others.  

  1.      What advice would you give to new coaches?

Sarahs A : I would say, know that there is an invisible reality that impacts behaviour in multifarious ways but especially in high stikes contexts. The Childhood Story resides there often doing good but also frequently doing harm when we are under pressure. Don’t be afraid to dare to ask a leader about their childhood story. It’s there in the room with you. Be safe in doing so by getting training so that you enter this territory safely and well and by ensuring you engage in regular supervision. We mostly worry about causing harm by opening things up but know that avoiding ‘going there’ when a Story starts to show itself can also cause harm.  

  1.      If you could wave a magic wand and have one wish for you or your coaching practice, what would it be and why?

Sarahs A : It would be that equipping leaders to gain command of their childhood story becomes an integral and mainstream part of coaching practice and training. And if I really did have a magic wand, reporting of global leaders’ communicative competence under pressure being linked to command of their childhood story would be widespread news! 
_________________________________________________________________________________
 
If you’d like to know more about coaching the childhood story, Sarah will be leading our June workshop, for more information and to book tickets Daring to Ask, Daring to Look: Coaching the Childhood Story with Sarah Hill

We look forward to seeing you soon,
Warm wishes.

June 2019 Newsletter

Hi all,

On the 21st of May, the London Coaching Group were pleased to welcome performance coach Anna-Marie Watson, who delivered a workshop on Walking & Talking Coaching.

Anna-Marie explained the benefits of working outdoors with clients, the connection with nature and creativity.  She also explained practical considerations such as keeping an open mind, having a reserve plan and in case of poor weather, trying out your route in advance; checking out health and safety and keeping it fun.  We headed outdoors for a breath of fresh air, stretched our legs and connected with fellow coaches in the natural surroundings of Hyde Park. You can see what future events we have coming up for the next few months of 2019 later on in this email.                              

Feedback from April event – Pair Coaching - An Introduction with James Caplin
I though James offer for a 10-week workshop was very generous - I cant wait to get started!
Well organised, good venue, excellent refreshments.  Thank you.  Please let speakers know that at the end of a long day, it’s sometimes a refreshing change to just be told stuff and not to have to be overly collaborative and experiential.
I enjoyed James easy style, and that he was not claiming to have cracked it yet.

Dear All,

On Tuesday 24th July, Dara Caryotis delivered an original and interesting workshop on Compassionate, Creative and Courageous Coaching. There was a deep dive into how we can tap into our innate intelligence of their head, heart, and gut, and Dara facilitated discussion around what type of leaders predominantly think with each of them. We heard how the latest research from the fields of neuroscience, positive psychology and behavioural modelling have shaped theory in mBraining, and we witnessed first-hand (using biofeedback technology) how someone’s heartrate can be impacted through questions and changes to our external environment. Thanks to Dara for talking on such an interesting and emerging subject.         

Some Tweets from the night:

Dear All,

On Tuesday 26th June Hilary Oliver and Tracy Sinclair
 delivered an excellent workshop entitled Building a Coaching Culture for Greater Engagement and Lasting Outcomes. The session was informative and interactive and left the participants with much food for thought. It was great to learn from such experts in the field of coaching. All the case studies can be found on the ICF website and do remember check out the ICF Prism Awards where organisations are celebrated for the positive impact(s) of truly embedding and developing a coaching culture. 
            
Some Feedback from the night:
Interaction with others and between the speakers

Clarity of presentation. Warm, engaging and inspiring presenters. Ideas to take forward. Opportunities to share ideas

Really interesting to reflect on the difference between simply having coaches in an organisation versus creating a coaching culture

Feedback from May event – What kind of coaching misfit are you? with Michelle Lucas
Making us work in groups was a great way for us to share ideas, I got so much from the other delegates to compliment what I got from the speaker  
Very interactive.  Fun.  Well facilitated
The speaker’s friendly and playful attitude
