Coaching for Business: Integrating coaching processes and models

Format Workshop
Presenters Sunny Stout-Rostron MA, DProf (South Africa)
Description Sunny is returning to Australia in Feb/March 2013 - a popular and highly experienced coach, author and academic, whose workshop is designed to deepen your current coaching practice. Although Sunny is an executive coach, this workshop is also applicable to other organisational, career and life coaches.

Coaches are constantly asked "what is the coaching model that you are working with", and yet the underlying question is, "what kind of flexibility does your model give you"? There is a lot of confusion about which model to use, or how to design your own coaching model as you become more experienced as a coach. Your coaching practice will be informed by your own experience and wide theoretical background.

This program is targeted towards those with existing coaching experience, who want to further develop themselves personally and professionally - developing competence and flexibility working with coaching models. You will enhance the quality of your coaching practice enabling you to develop an attuned quality of attention to the coaching client relationship.

Sunny de-mystifies the models that underpin the coaching profession, introducing you to a cross section of contemporary coaching models, while fine-tuning the process of your business coaching conversation. Firmly embedded in an experiential learning tradition, you will begin to develop an understanding of your own coaching approach at the same time as more fully understanding the coaching process with its underlying learning, psychological, systemic and existential principles that will help you to develop a structured approach with flexibility yet rigour in your practice.
