Conversations with these amazing Human-Based Leaders

School of Shadow Coaching® Advanced Coach Training


Are you giving clients what they think they can get or what they really want?"

You can be one of thousands who give clients what they think they can get or one of a select few who can not only coach them, but coach them on the fly…go faster, deeper and more to the point so they get out of their ruts, or at the very least draw a roadmap to get there and start the journey in real time.

This cutting-edge training is ideal for those coaches who are interested in moving from formulaic and procedural methods to being able to focus on their client's specific situation, need, 'Shadows' and opportunities and provide them with a unique and personalised service. You will develop your capability to engage in "real time", deep, and reflective, observational, shadow coaching.

In this intensive training, you will master the most powerful and effective coaching skills, ask provocative and illuminating questions to identify and break through the limitations of the shadow and help clients (and you, as coaches) shift from a limited to a limitless world.

This is transformational coaching. We will explore the power of the shadow in coaching, how it manifests, how we coach clients to view it, process it, and use it to fuel conscious choice and movement. This is not therapy. We work with clients to become reflective practitioners, to move beyond roadblocks their shadows create and become aware of the "gold", the gifts that emerge as clients become more of who they are as you coach them into their mastery and a life they love.

In an increasingly complex world, many of the current practices of leadership do not equip people to deal with neither their biggest risks or their deepest aspirations. Leaders currently have to deal with the intensification of systemic complexity from economic and political realities. They need to be able to respond adaptively to the depth, scope and pace of change that, combined with this complexity, creates unprecedented challenging conditions.

When times are tough, clients have to make tough choices. One of those choices is how they choose their coach, or whether or not they choose to work with a coach at all. Tough economic times brings a world of impatient people. Clients want to hone their skills, become amazing at what they do so they stand out from the crowd and make sure they stay up there. Do you have the coaching skills in your toolbox to help them get there fast and make those changes stick?

This is not a workshop ‘about’ the work, but rather a deep immersion into it that will transform how you see yourself and what you do.
