Session 5: Coaching for Meaning and Purpose

Learn new ways to explore with your coachees their own set of values and meaning and help to create motivation and purpose from them. Job satisfaction and performance are often linked to an individual’s sense of meaning and purpose.

Session 6: Coaching from a Systems Perspective

Understand how systems play out in coaching assignments and how to work effectively with them. Although our coaching sessions are usually a 1:1 experience, it is helpful to remember that each coach and coachee are pieces of a system. Work teams, organisations, families, bosses, and even values and beliefs are all part of the system that is the coaching environment.
