Coaching CPD Workshops

About the workshops

We were excited to host a series of Coaching Continuing Professional Development (CPD) workshops across a range of topics in 2016/17.

Anyone who was a qualified or studying coach in the NHS or public sector in Yorkshire and the Humber was welcome to attend our events.

As demand was high for these workshops, priority in the waiting list was given to My E-Coach users who were in active coaching relationships.  Spaces were also limited to 20 to ensure a good quality discussion.  



19 January 2017: Team Coaching

In this workshop, a small group was guided through an exploration of Team Coaching. 

23 February 2017: Gestalt

This half day taster session explored Gestalt appreciative approaches to coaching, to stretch coaching practice and add to coaches' application with clients. Participants received practical experiential learning with some theory to underpin practice.

The session looked at:

  • Understanding Gestalt Methodology and its practical applications to coaching practice
  • Exploring coaching practice during group and one-to-one sessions

  • Understanding the use of self and impact of clients in coaching practice

This workshop was facilitated by Steve Keyes, Head of Organisational Development at Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust.

3 March 2017: Coaching Ethics

This was an exploration of coaching ethics, to support the development of sustainable and strategically aligned coaching capability.  There was some preparatory reading, self-assessment and reflection on coaching practice beforehand, and the workshop itself was experiential, involving brief inputs on frameworks and perspectives, alongside peer and group reflection on practice and associated discussion and development planning.

The workshop:

• Raised awareness of the importance of ethics and ethical maturity in coaching practice
• Used existing coaching practice and experience to highlight everyday ethical tensions and how these get handled
• Developed ethical frames to enable coaches to develop ethical awareness, operate within the moment and support continuing professional development
• Utilised a supervision framework to support ethical awareness and maturity in coaching.

Spaces were limited to 16 to ensure a good quality discussion.  Workshop Facilitators were Carol Pickering and Fiona Simons.
