Conversations with these amazing Human-Based Leaders

School of Shadow Coaching® Advanced Coach Training

The School of Shadow Coaching is returning to Brazil!

There was such a great response to our Levels 1 and 2 training in São Paulo, that we're coming back in November, 2016, and adding a new workshop as well!

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 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.

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.

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?  Click here to read on

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.

What past participants are saying...

The Shadow Coaching Training provided a tremendously powerful coaching tool/skill set that will prove quite valuable in today's "do more with less" environment that clients are demanding.

The Shadow Coach observes how individuals construct interpretations about their ways of being which are then reflected through their language and actions. It also works with emerging shadow personalities and helps the client embrace and accept their ‘shadow’ personalities as a vital and valid part of their character.
