York CVS Priory Street Centre Main Hall Arrive from 09.30 for 10:00-12.30
We are delighted to be partnering with York CVS, City of York Council, and TMSDI for our launch event this year.
Timothy Gallwey’s magic formula, P = P – I (Performance = Potential – Interference). What is the Interference (or types of barrier) that stands in the way of Coaching realising its true potential – not just in the workplace, but in the wider community? Contribute your insights and expertise to those of our four guest speakers who will be exploring these issues through the different lenses of Community Action, the world of academe, and the city’s main service provider that is the City Council.

Active Listening Event York CVS 13.30 -15.00
Bernadette Cass PCC leads this session to enquire how we harness the power of listening and hear what is spoken and unspoken. How do we use active listening to pay attention to the other person’s agenda and appreciate the impact of being fully listened to ourselves?
This interactive session is suitable for coaches and non-coaches.
Bernadette leads this Masterclass to deepen coaching skills on behalf of the UK International Coach Federation (ICF). Fluency with coaching competencies informs us about who we are as coaches and enables us to meet our clients at our best, deepening awareness of our own style and approach, and strengthening skills and performance.
For coaches wishing to log CPD, International Coach Federation CCEUs have been applied for this event.

Coaching with horse demonstration Gallabar Farm, Gallabar Lane, Marton-cum-Grafton. YO51 9QU (about 20 min drive form York)
10.00 – 12.30
An event for business owners, leaders and executives looking to develop their leadership and teamwork skills, and for coaches and consultants that want to consider adding this modality as part of their existing programmes.
Business is changing rapidly and the old style of business and leadership skills will no longer get you where you want to go. What if I told you a horse could show you a new paradigm? A way of acting and being that will serve you more effectively in the future.
As we move from the information era to the collaboration era horses can model for us how to work as a real team, one where the leadership is shared, where communication is authentic and where the vision is crystal clear. How would you like these traits in your business?
If you are intrigued to find out more then join me to celebrate International Coaching Week when I will be hosting a demonstration on how I help my clients develop their leadership, teamwork and communication skills through coaching with horses.
What we will cover
A small number of volunteers will have the unique opportunity to work hands on with the horses to learn about their leadership style and how they show up in business. No horse experience is necessary.
This event is all about experiential learning so as an audience member you will also be participating providing feedback on what you observe.
What you can expect to learn:
• How you need to grow in order for your business to grow
• Leadng out of your comfort zone
• How to use your leadership strengths to overcome barriers to success
• The importance of body language and how to communicate with clarity
• Creating a collaborative team
• Negotiating conflict
• and so much more………
Places are limited so please reserve your place (at this free event) and bring along family, friends, colleagues and your clients.
