About this Event:

Coaching is a live, unpredictable exploration towards a shared goal. It involves meeting clients where they are, innovation, collaboration, thinking on your feet and adapting to unique situations. These skills are the very heart of Improvisation.

The creative mind sees opportunities where others may be stuck. Improvisation can unlock your authentic playful side and natural abundance of creativity, allowing you to be a more impactful coach. Learn to become comfortable in uncertainty and open up your capacity for flexible thinking. With self awareness and increased emotional intelligence you’ll be able to confidently step into new waters with clients and approach things in innovative ways.

This experiential workshop will give you the fundamental tools of improvisation and help you access this creative side of yourself. There will be pair and group exercises that will take you out of coaching mode and into developing the skills in a light hearted way. Embodied techniques will help you improve your personal presence, confidence and relational dynamics. By managing our own state we are better able to help others.

Improvisation will improve your creativity and flexibility as a coach, stretch your comfort zone and allow you to be present and alive with whatever unfolds. It is nothing to be afraid of – its a liberating and joyful experience which will be an invaluable addition to your coaching toolkit.
