Coaching with Diversity and Equality with Aboodi Shabi
11 April 2024, 2pm (90 minutes masterclass)
In her book ‘Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men,’ Caroline Criado-Perez writes that the gender data gap is “not generally malicious, or even deliberate. Quite the opposite. It is simply the product of a way of thinking that has been around for millennia and is therefore a kind of not thinking.”
In this session, we’ll work from the assumption that we are all steeped in ways of thinking — often invisible to us — that shape us and our actions and ways of being as well as our attitudes and beliefs.
We will then explore how our attitudes towards difference and others have also been shaped by the narratives and ways of thinking in which we have been immersed. We will think together about how we can work to go beyond what we have learned, so that we can be better advocates for diversity and equality in our coaching and with our coachees.
Aboodi Shabi has been working in executive coaching and coach training since the mid 1990s and has several years of international coaching, training and leadership development experience. He has delivered ontological coach-training programmes all over the world. He is currently on the faculty of Henley Business School’s coaching programme, and also plays an active role on Henley’s Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee. He is a regular speaker on the international coaching circuit and an invited guest tutor on mastery in coaching at several European coaching schools. He has been on the ICF global coaching board and was founding co-president of the UK ICF Chapter. He is currently on the Association for Coaching’s UK leadership team and on the editorial board of Coaching at Work magazine.
