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

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

Dear All,

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.

LCG May 2017 Newsletter

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.

April 2017 Newsletter

LCG April 2017 Newsletter

Dear All,


It was great to see many of you last month for an extended session about virtual coaching.
 
March event:  
 
Less is More! Harnessing the Power of Virtual Coaching with Moira McLaughin and Lisa Kaboutis:
 
Moira and Lisa shared insightful findings from their research in coaching with audio, telephone and video. More and more coaches work in the virtual space now. We worked in groups to practice listening for emotions, content, and intention when coaching with audio only. We also reflected on how virtual coaching can go deeper and become more focused than face to face coaching. There were many questions from attendees during this interactive session.
  
LCG Online Community presentation Vivian Wood:

ReciproCoach provides peer coaching, mentoring and supervision for coaches.  LCG has been collaborating with ReciproCoach over the past year. As the lead for this project Vivian presented a video in which Kerryn Griffiths talked about why she originally set up ReciproCoach. The video then featured three coaches who described their experience of ReciproCoach and the benefits of being part of an online coaching community.   
 
Attendees were encouraged to take advantage of the discounted membership that is available to LCG and become part of our own online coaching community (further details to go out as a separate announcement).  

Feedback from Februarys event – Coaching in war zones and other intensive environments with Mark Walsh
  
Mark is very entertaining and definitely keeps the energy up in the room.  I enjoyed his story, stories and presentation.  The exercises were useful and I would have liked to have more time to explore them.

I found the speaker very interesting and highly knowledgeable and can see why some might find him difficult to watch.

I expected a talk about how coaching may be used in true war zones. Places where coaching could be relevant and yet where one asks the question: really? When people worry about security and daily bread? I felt very disappointed. What was covered was sloppy, at an elementary level and I felt this person (credential as impressive as they were) did not take the event very seriously.
  
Forthcoming events:
 
Tuesday 25 April 2017 (18H15 Networking – 18H45-20H15 Session)

March Newsletter

LCG March 2017 Newsletter

Dear all,

It was very nice to see many of you last month!
 
As we look forward to March, please note that our next event will be an extended session about virtual coaching (18H to 20H30).  In addition to welcoming Moira McLoughlin for her session on harnessing the power of virtual coaching, we are going to include a short session on ReciproCoach – what it is, how it works and how we can build our LCG community virtually.  As you know, we are keen to build our online coaching community as we don’t have co-coaching sessions at the monthly events.  We feel that there is a great untapped opportunity for the LCG community to stay connected and to really benefit from coaching each other, don’t you?  Many of you on our mailing list cannot attend the face to face events so we hope to be able to include you virtually.  We really hope to see you there and welcome your support for the initiative. 
 

February event: Coaching in war zones and other intensive environments with Mark Walsh 

As Mark explained the body is more than just a brain-taxi, it is a key part of who we are. In coaching, working with the body helps coaches get to the heart of the issue.

Mark showed us embodiment techniques that could help with finding peace and calm such as centring. It was a very interactive session helping us raise awareness of our body and posture.

 

Feedback from Januarys event – The Speaking Coach: How to get paid to speak as a coach with Heather Townsend
  
Heather taught much by way of example - observing her effective speaking techniques complemented the content of her speech  

Great story telling by Heather about her rowing experiences

It was good to remember that speaking does not have to be to a huge audience.  It comes under many guises - webinars, training sessions, etc.

It was my first meeting and I was impressed to have such a high calibre and entertaining presenter

February Newsletter

LCG February 2017 Newsletter

Dear all,

We are delighted to announce our speaker events for 2017.   Please see the full listing below.

It was lovely to see so many people at the January event, The Speaking Coach: How to get paid to speak as a coach with Heather Townsend, many of whom were new to LCG.  Heather gave us a great overview of her own journey, following redundancy in 2008, to becoming an expert in an area “1” wide and a mile deep” – helping professionals in practice make partner.  She is also a successful speaker and author. She shared many tips and practical advice on how to get paid speaking engagements as a coach, earning great fees and developing opportunities to connect with potential clients.  Her down to earth approach left everyone in no doubt that the route to achieving success is having a strategy, developing and honing authority and building a strong network.  Her session was fun, informative and full of engaging stories.  Thank you, Heather!

Some tweets from the night –

@KishLYL @JackeeHolder @LondonCoachGrp what a great session! Fifteen minutes in and we already did two writings :) 

2.         Our 1st full day Masterclass - Marketing Masterclass with Lisa Farr

Our first Masterclass with Lisa Farr was fabulous, interactive, and informative. The feedback we received speaks for itself with an overall marking of EXCELLENT.  Thank you Lisa for working with us on this pioneering project and we look forward to working in this way more in the future.
 
Lisa is a consistent and authentic coach compared to other coaches on marketing. She turns up with 100% authenticity of their behalf! Great session. Martin Sealy
 
Lisa was excellent. Her style is very engaging, while still being focused and precise. She modeled what she taught, which helped cement my learning and I learnt more about coaching, as well as marketing.  Sandra Husbands 

 

Feedback from September’s event - Andy Britnell

I think it was a good overview to what is quite a large topic and for me, I found it really useful.  It\'s definitely helped me to decide to start using social media a little more to promote my business.  I also enjoy meeting other coaches which is one of the benefits of coming to these meetings.  Thank you for organising this.

Andy is obviously very knowledgable and experienced, but somehow the session just didn\'t work for me.

Andy also offered a free 30 minute session with attendees the following day - 5 in total took that option up.  Also, the presentation and mind maps have been forwarded to attendees who responded to the feedback survey.


Final event of the year:  
 
End of Year Review - Resourcing Resolutions From The System with John Whittington
 
RESTRICTED TO ATTENDEES FROM KICKSTART SESSION IN JANUARY 2016 
 
This is the second session of Resourcing Solutions From The System in 2016. A workshop, following on from our 2016 Kickstart Session, facilitated by John Whittington, using the constellations methodology to allow those present to reflect on the year, review progress, celebrate their successes and go a step further.
 
Thank you all for your fantastic support in 2016.  We do hope that you have enjoyed LCG this year and look forward to seeing you again next year!
 
We plan to publish a schedule of events for 2017 by the end of December.  We would love to receive your feedback on this year’s schedule before our planning meeting on November 18th so please feel free to send your comments to admin@londoncoachinggroup.co.uk and we will do our best to reflect your feedback in our activities for 2017.
 
 
Warm wishes,
Deborah, Kish, Isabelle, Teresa & Vivian
