Team coaching – Cultivating the capacity to stay present in the midst of Intensity |with Monica Ross and Damion Wonfor
“The success of any intervention depends on the inner being of the intervener.”
— C.Otto. Scharmer
When stepping into the role and into a session as a team coach, it is likely we may find in front of a group that our personal anxiety and vulnerabilities are dialled up dramatically. In addition, in the team coaching space, we will also be meeting the anxieties and vulnerabilities of the group / team, along with those from the wider system; so there’s a great deal for us to hold! This can all have an impact on our authority, presence and capacity to build the container for the team and intervene.
During this CPD module, Monica and Damion will explore techniques from embodiment, interpersonal mindfulness and systemic coaching to expand your window of emotional tolerance and deepen your capacity to re-center and return to presence so you can be the greatest tool for change within the team coaching process. We will also explore your potential hooks (the unconscious radar scanning that is likely to be happening) and learn how to recognise when you are pulled off centre, when you may lose your ground and most importantly techniques to regain your presence, impact and professional authority.
