About this course

We work one-on-one with senior leadership in organisations as part of their personal and professional development process. These coaching engagements are generally long-term, highly personalised and defined by the development objectives of the coachee and where relevant the client organisation.

 

The Coach/Mentor will guide and facilitate you, the coachee, to achieve your goals and objectives. Typically the objectives are a mix of organisational, leadership (be it strategic or operational) and personal objectives. The coaching process focuses on your development, whereby you are empowered and skilled to act confidently, authentically and effectively.

 

We often think of clients seeking coaching as being in a liminal space. Liminality (derived from the latin word limen) means being ‘in-between places’ or at a threshold. When we find ourselves in between the place of where we are and where we want to be, or when we are pushed from our familiar comfort zones into unfamilar and unexpected places, we need to adjust and adapt our responses. This in-between transition, is the liminal space.

 

At Corporate Druids we ‘hold liminal spaces’; helping you figure things out, support weighing of choices and decisions, build new skills, dream different dreams, and envision new futures and support and encourage the action you take in the world.

 

Our approach to coaching has a strong foundation in narrative coaching and action inquiry.

 

Narrative coaching invests in building a safe space to encourage our clients to share their stories. In narrative coaching:

  • Personal stories become a resource and catalyst for change
  • You gain a deeper understanding of how you make meaning and how this programs your responses, choices, decisions and actions in the world
  • You develop an awareness of the personal, familial, social, cultural and political context and history that shape your ongoing personal story
  • You identify patterns and dominant stories that keep you stuck in behaviours and situations that no longer serve you and stop you from achieving your goals, dreams and the story you want to be living.
  • You develop the wisdom and courage to change, choose and own the stories you want to create and be part of, towards your own well-being.

 

Action Inquiry invites the client to pay attention to the ‘moment-to-moment’ unfolding of everyday life. Action Inquiry is often thought of as ‘living life as inquiry‘. It involves:

  • Being present to the choices you make
  • Paying attention to and verifying the underlying assumptions of your beliefs and ideas
  • To taking ownership to your actions
  • Reflecting and learning from those actions and the outcomes/consequences of those actions
  • Mindfully adjusting and adapting yourself and your actions based on the ongoing inquiry and learning
  • Identifying the gaps between how you think you are and how you are; i.e. it is an inquiry into the integrity of your espoused or desired values versus lived values)
  • Creating mutuality in relationships, by engaging in honest communication. You are thus able to co-create shared visions for how you live, love and work together
  • In organisational systems, being generative (life-giving) and creating sustainable futures for the wellbeing of the human and other-than-human life

FAQs

What happens at a session?

The first session is mostly about getting to know each other, and sharing expectations, and setting some key areas for development. After that, each session is generally guided by the goals for development or change, and whatever else is coming up for  the client in their personal and professional lives that is relevant to be addressed. In our personal experience, goals and areas for change and development evolve as the client goes through the process of coaching, and as our relationship develops and deepens.

How many sessions should I sign up for

It is up to you. Typically a first time client signs up for up to six (6) sessions at a time. And meet every 4 to 6 weeks. Then they re-contract again as per their needs. We have many clients with whom we have worked with over a long period of time, where they come for a couple of sessions as and when they need to.

Is coaching only for working professionals?

We have a number of clients who are not working professionals, who are either stay at home spouses or parents, who are looking to make sense of changing roles and circumstance, take the next step in their lives, or just wanting to respond more effectively to the daily demands of their lives.

My team members have different development needs. Is coaching applicable?

We often work with organisations where we are contracted to individually coach all the team members. This way the individual grows while the team develops. We also coach teams as a whole, which is where we work on team development needs. Check here for more on that. Sometimes organisations needs a mixture of individual one-on-one coaching and team coaching.
