Compassionate Wellbeing in Coaching
Time & Location
About the Event
Compassion is a human characteristic that focusses on care and kindness. Self-compassion is where you learn to take care of yourself, know when you are under stress and understand the most effective way to deal with this. According to O'Neill (2007), effective coaches must demonstrate ‘fearless compassion’, and one way of doing this is to start with the self. In a kind way. This self-directed online course will enable you to explore the concept of compassion and apply this to a coaching context in order to develop and improve your own wellbeing and that of your coachee.
Online self-study units will be made available on Tuesday 1 September (2 hours in total) followed by a live online seminar facilitated by the course leader on Friday 18 September.
