1. Integrating Human Health within Coaching

Health and the condition of body and mind affect everything, often profoundly. The ability to innovate, create, perform, use resilience and lead are all impacted by our health. And our health is impacted by the way we live, work, play and think. Some coaches may ignore this fact to the detriment of the client and their coaching objectives. Including it skilfully within the coaching relationship changes client outcomes, often dramatically.

We can go even further and actually use specialised coaching deliberately to help people within all coaching contexts to recover from and / or manage the impact of a health challenge on their lives. We need to do this because these health challenges have become an outcome of the way we live and impact on our ability to fulfil our potential.

We are pleased to invite you to develop your own understanding of how to integrate this into your coaching and how you can offer an expanded, effective coaching service to your clients, in this upcoming AC webinar series, starting on 23rd November 2016. 

2. In this webinar series you will learn:

  • Why and how coaching can take a prime position in becoming a major way we influence people's recovery from health challenges;
  • How the right kind of motivation is key in accessing the energy required to recover from a health challenge;
  • How the Meaning Centred Coaching Model (MCC) works and can consistently free up the energy for change and the reallocation of resilience;
  • Which are the 5 key components of coaching that one needs to focus on when working as a recovery and wellness coach;
  • How offering recovery and wellness coaching to ALL your clients can change your practice.

We will also consider key learning points such as...

  • understanding the way emotions and health interplay with each other to either block or allow change to take place is crucial and
  • the consequences of failure to find a way to respond to a health challenge that leads to recovery are potentially huge. Find out how coaches need to reflect this reality in the way they approach the coaching relationship.

3. Topics and schedule for the webinar series:

**Live webinars will take place at: 13.00 hrs GMT on the above-mentioned dates.

Webinar 1 - with Prof Paul Brown as guest speaker:  All Coaching outcomes are influenced by the health state of your coaching clients

We will start this first webinar by exploring some statistics regarding a number of aspects of health which are generally not factored in coaching practices. These statistics matter as they show the hidden influence that organizational and business coaching can have.

We will explore what neuroscience tells us about the way the health state of a person influences brain performance and emotions. We will also make clear distinctions between the various types of health, wellness and recovery coaching.

Whether we think about it in this way or not, all coaching relationships are influenced, sometimes profoundly, by the health of your coaching client (and the health of the coach). With the epidemic of mainly behavioural health and lifestyle driven health challenges no coach is immune or left untouched by these issues. All coaches are then working with human health and often illness.

Webinar 2: How integrating human health as the foundation for the coaching relationship affects all coaching outcomes and client experience

There are 5 key components of coaching that need to be rethought and re designed when integrating the changed stake of the coaching relationship. Health challenges can mean great loss and difficulty for a client as well as those around them. Coaches working with clients like this ought to be focussed and aware of the consequences for the client if they are unable to make the necessary changes. This requires the coach to step in and reconfigure the way the coaching relationship is contracted and designed. In this webinar we will explore this and other 4 components and how to change them.

Webinar 3 - with Chris McUthcen as guest speaker: How to find clients motivational energy to change and develop their lives

In this webinar we introduce the Meaning Centred Coaching Model (MCC) that offers a simple but profound way to create ongoing energy resources at the centre of a client's life. We will explore the 4 fields, 4 principles and 4 tasks and show they can help clients move their resilience to new ways of thinking and behaving and most importantly, feeling. We will also explore how meaning is the essential ingredient in all goals and how we can help our clients create them. Guest Chris McUtchen will share his approach with his corporate clients across the world into which he has built meaning and purpose as a central driver for successful engagement.

Webinar 4:  What is involved when becoming an Executive Recovery and Wellness Coach?

What does it mean to create and lead a well organisation? What is a good and ‘well’ leader?

Why have wellness programmes succeeded but also failed?

In this webinar we look at how health and recovery is the foundation of good organisational operation, management and innovation. It is also driven by a compelling business case. We will look at how the Meaning Centred Coaching Model (MCC) model can be used to develop leadership and what are the differences between an Executive Coach and an Executive Recovery and Wellness Coach?
