The Art of Masterful Coaching with Aboodi Shabi








For Coaches


£ AC Members £80 / Non Members £100 + VAT

The Association for Coaching (AC) is pleased to welcome Aboodi Shabi to speak at this Masterclass Event. We will look at how to deepen our capacity to be present to the client, to listen beyond their goals, and to go beyond our techniques in order to serve the client in navigating increasingly complex challenges and uncertainty, and in discovering an authentic articulation of who they are.


About this Event:

As the coaching profession matures, we have an increasingly wide range of tools and methodologies to support us in our work. Whilst all of these tools can bring great value in a wide range of applications, research shows that of the factors influencing outcomes in coaching, methods and tools account for only 15%, with the coaching relationship accounting for 30%.

This will be a thought provoking and stimulating workshop, offering questions and new perspectives about coaching and the world in which we do our work.

The day will be highly experiential with plenty of coaching and reflective exercises and will cover the relevance of coaching in our times, working with moods and emotions in coaching, working with the body in coaching, and the use and management of self in coaching.

This event will take place via a virtual format throughout the day. The event will be broken down into two 2.5 hour sessions throughout the day,

Part 1

10:00 (BST)/ 11:00 (CEST) – Event commences

12:30 (BST)/ 13:30 (CEST) – Finish

Part 2
