December Masterclass: Using Clean Language to Enhance your Coaching Toolkit – 1st December 2021  About the facilitator: Jackie Lawlor

As an experienced coach you are already highly resourced. You know how to step back to give a client space to explore their issues and where and when to step in with a question. You encourage different perspectives. You have a wide range of effective questions, listening levels and capabilities including models you bring to your work. You work from the presupposition that your client has all the resources they need and that your purpose as coach is to connect them to their innate wisdom. And you use all of these to excellent affect in supporting change and growth in your clients.

Clean Language questions have a special kind of magic about them -they don’t add anything. Linguistically as free as possible from influence, the questions encourage the client to visit and stay with their own inner landscape, discovering things they didn’t know they knew.

What will we cover?
• Using questions, slowing dialogue down to hold attention on an aspect of what someone is saying and speeding up to use the questions conversationally
• How and where to encourage a metaphor and find out when it is useful to be able to do this
• Know how to turn a metaphor back to cognitive language for example when agreeing a developmental task
• Get an overview of a linguistic model which will help you to move a client from a problem state to an outcome state

How will the session work?
This is a small, online, group workshop for a max of ten people. Hosted on Zoom, some pre-work will be provided, followed by the slides after the session as a memory aid.

Jackie is a highly experienced Executive Coach and Mentor and Facilitator, specialising in Clean Language and Systemic Modelling.

Masterclass: Introducing to Generative Coaching – date to be confirmed About the facilitator: Florence Madden

Generative Coaching is the work of Robert Dilts and Stephen Gilligan and has developed from their involvement in NLP and specifically the creative power of the somatic mind.

Generative change means creating something beyond what has ever existed, whether in personal or professional life.

Generative Coaching assumes that reality is constructed, and that this creative process can be mindfully engaged for positive outcomes.

To do this, a person’s state of consciousness is the difference that makes the difference: The outcomes a person produces are only as good as their state.

Generative Coaching teaches you how to build the generative states needed to make dreams come true.

In this short session we will explore:
• Getting into a generative state
• Becoming aware of the somatic as well as the cognitive mind
• What are archetypal energies
• Transforming ‘obstacles’ on the path to our outcome
