Nature Coaching: my workshop at ICF Converge 2019.
I’ve just come back from Prague, where I held a Nature Coaching Workshop at ICF Converge19, the International Coach Federation biennial Congress uniting coaches from over 70 countries in the world.
My Workshop was part of the “Science” workshops, it lasted one hour and you can download the slide deck along with the handout that was reserved to attendees, by clicking HERE.
Nature Coaching Academy; International Edition in 2020
I was very excited by the tremendous interest around Nature Coaching.
In 2020 I’ll launch the first International Edition of The Nature Coaching Academy and I’m going to design multiple options for international participants to join (either in-person trainings and online courses).
I’m in the process to get all my courses accredited by the International Coach Federation, the gold standard for coaches worldwide, and I plan on getting either credentials for CCEU and for ACSTH. I’ll keep you posted about this!
Coaching Workshops at Converge19
Also, I participated in great workshops held by other coaches. And I want to mention two of them in particular:
- The Inner Playground, with Debra Gerardi, who taught us with humour and brilliance how to use playfulness for creating connection with our coachees, and to co-create a safe space for personal growth, deep communication and insight.
- Coaching Collective Connective Intelligence, with Zoran Todorovic, who ignited every coach’s soul with a speech full of vision, systemic thinking and courage. The key concept for me has been that every time we as coaches facilitate the evolution of a single person we’re also working around the evolution of humanity as a whole. Powerful!
I have been connecting with coaches from around the globe and I felt enthusiastic and grateful for the deep conversations that I had especially with coaches from Indonesia, Malaysia, France, UK, Austria, Switzerland, Germany and USA.
In particular, I enjoyed so much a beautiful evening walk around the magnificent Vysehrad Castel, connecting with the magical genius loci of Prague (Praha in Czech language) thanks to Halka Balackova.
Upcoming research about the impact of nature-connection on coaching efficacy
I finally met in-person Alison Hodge and Joel Di Girolamo, Director of Coaching Science at the International Coach Federation. We’re considering the opportunity to design a scientific research to measure the impact of nature-connection on the efficacy of a coaching session.
If you wish to know more or be involved, please email me. We’ll work on it during 2020.
ICF Converge19: a great event every coach should attend
It’s been my first time at the Congress of the International Coach Federation and I could not be happier. I look forward to the next edition of Converge!
