Join us for this introductory workshop to explore climate biodiversity coaching!

This interactive workshop will support you to reflect on how you and your work is embedded in the climate and biodiversity context we face on planet Earth.

We hope to spark your curiosity to find out more and to develop some next steps for your own personal and professional development and provide you with tips, tools and awareness of what the world needs from coaches and supervisors given our own and our clients’ current and future challenges.

During the session, we will explore what emotions arise in you when you think of climate change. Many coaches and coach supervisors are seeing the need to be able to support their clients as they become aware and increasingly concerned about how we as humans are treating our Earth. What are your clients facing and feeling? Are we as coaches ready to support? Have we prepared ourselves for this? We will explore how we can listen to and support our clients as we realize that our busy lives are not supporting us to look up and think longer term.

Topics we will focus on:

  • Changing context of the world and what is needed for our clients
  • Eco-phase cycle
  • Eco-systemic mindset with practical exercise
  • Eco-anxiety and building resilience including our connection to nature
  • Q&A
  • Please prepare any questions you have which we can cover during the session. 

Common questions may include:

  • How to meet clients where they are at?
  • How do we consciously and unconsciously relate to the ecology and more than human world and how does this show up in our coaching?
  • Are we coaching the person in front of us or the wider system of which they are part of?
  • What questions do future generations have for us today?
  • What are the biggest challenges faced by our clients now and in the future which we need to resolve today?

We will provide some top tips from our experience and leave you feeling empowered when embracing the future we and our children are facing.

What to bring with you.

Your full humanity and somewhere to capture your insights and reflections.
