Coaching at Work December e-newsletter

Welcome Venice: such a feast for the mind, senses and soul. The location for this year’s European Mentoring and Coaching Council’s annual conference, it proved to offer a delightful backdrop. It was energizing to explore a city whose lines and curves are unblemished by tower blocks, neon lights and satellites; where the soft warm golden­ness of sunshine caressing the riverside buildings combined with the clarity of wintry air to produce a magical light; where the ubiquitous presence of water provided a sense of flow, and of reflection. And of course, all those twists and turns­ when you wander away from […]

Coaching at Work November e-newsletter

Welcome When our body and mind work pretty much as we wish them to, we tend to take it for granted. When they don’t, we can easily fall into seeing them as an adversary, piling frustration and anger upon what is already a challenging situation. Separating us in here from our ‘badly-behaving’ body or mind over there. Or we beat ourselves up for bringing the situation on ourselves somehow. That has certainly been my experience at times recently. I am currently suffering from repetitive strain injury (RSI) and ideally need to refrain completely from using the computer and many other […]

Coaching at Work October e-newsletter

Welcome I’m not one personally for taking to the high seas but it was hard not to get caught up in the buzz in Alicante port in recent weeks. The nine-month Volvo Ocean Race, the toughest race in professional sailing, started in Alicante on 11 October, with various in-port races in the lead-up. One of the seven teams, Team SCA, is the first all-female team in a decade. And judging by the number of people sporting magenta pink (the sailboat’s colour) as we wandered around the port before the starting gun rang out- – they have a lot of public […]

Coaching at Work September e-newsletter

Welcome Here in Spain where I’m writing this, summer is most definitely not over yet. It’s hot, hot, hot, (35 degrees, real feel 36 degrees).  However, there’s still a post-holiday, back-to-school but not-quite-ready-yet feeling. It’s a feeling I know lots of you are also experiencing, given some of the conversations I’ve been having. But slowly, slowly, momentum is building up once more and there are certainly lots of things to look forward to. A number of conferences coming up: ICF global in Malmo this month; EMCC and AC UK conferences in November, and Coaching at Work’s two remaining master classes […]

Welcome to the August 2012 issue of the newsletter

Welcome to the August 2012 issue of the newsletter Mental toughness is a significant factor in performance and wellbeing. Apparently most of us have it, but we don’t know how to use it, say Peter Clough and Doug Strycharczyk, who have written a book on this theme. In this issue of the newsletter, we feature the first of a two-part series on how to coach for mental toughness- see Highlights. The second part, in the September issue, will focus on attentional control. We’ve set a date for our next coaching conference: 2 July, in London. Our last two conferences sold […]

Welcome to the July 2012 issue of the newsletter

Welcome to the July 2012 issue of the newsletter “Coaches have to navigate between working in and challenging the status quo. The coach represents in some way a shaman who helps people to question and go beyond what we take for granted.” This was one of the messages from Aboodi Shabi in his keynote at our Coaching and Mentoring at Work conference on 11 July (conference report in the September issue). “We need to be bold and ask the questions others dare not ask, that’s when we really serve our clients….. if we don’t ask these questions, we are doomed […]

Welcome to the February 2012 issue of the newsletter

Welcome to the February 2012 issue of the newsletter Coaching at Work has launched a campaign to help increase the amount of high quality health and wellbeing coaching. As part of our Coaching for Health campaign, we’re running lots of editorial including our trends report in the March issue, and on health coaching approaches in the May issue. Why we’ve launched the campaign: • The cost of healthcare is spiralling yet we seem to be getting sicker • People have to take responsibility for their own health – they will rarely make behavioural changes just because a medical professional has […]
