This is a two part event. In the first part, you will learn how to prepare yourself and your group / team coaching participants for a vulnerable and deeper coaching experience. Karen will help us define and unpack psychological safety and she will share frameworks to support you. You’ll be able to create group coaching activities and explore deep group coaching topics safely and bravely with your clients.
In the second session, Heather will share more about trauma informed coaching. This practice is the new frontier of leadership development. As coaches and leaders it is critical we have a foundational understanding of trauma, as well as the competencies and capacity to meet it, if we are to be prepared to navigate the complexities of today’s global landscape. You will not learn to coach through trauma, but rather how to react and support your group / team members when trauma shows up during a coaching session.
