Coaching Masterclasses

Deepening Coaching Skills using core coaching competencies

This bi-monthly professional development forum is for coaches and those in coach training. It is an experiential session where

  • – the group examines one of the core coaching competencies
  • – syndicates of coach, client and observer have a live coaching sessions allowing the coach to practice the competency
  • – the coach receives structured feedback on the experience
  • – the syndicates share their learning in the whole group

The purpose is to deepen our knowledge of coaching competencies

All coaches are welcome including those in training. We value the insights contributed by coaches with different backgrounds and practices.

Bernadette Cass PCC leads these sessions on behalf of the UK International Coach Federation, and ICF professional development hours (CCEUs) are usually available to participants.

Coaching Circle

We are a group of coaches who act as a coach for one colleague and as a client for another during each ‘round’ of the circle (which usually lasts for 6 sessions).  This provides a safe space where we develop our coaching abilities, build coaching relationships based on trust and rapport & develop our skills and learning.
