    Webinar Invitation:

    The Global Business of Coaching:
    A Meta-Analytic Perspective

    An exclusive EMCC APR Virtual Book Launch

    with

    Dr David Lines & Dr Christina Evans 

    Tuesday 29th of September 2020

    You are invited to the first exclusive virtual launch of ‘The Global Business of Coaching: A Meta-Analytic Perspective’, published by Routledge.’ This webinar has been tailored to the unique requirements of coaches in Asia Pacific.

    Dr. David Lines and Dr. Christina Evans will be facilitating an interactive webinar to discuss their new book. They will share and discuss relevant findings for coaches practicing in Asia Pacific. They will illustrate their talk with metaphors and examples taken from their research for the book as well as sharing questions posed in the book that are intended to stimulate further debate about the global business of coaching.

    The webinar will be of particular interest to practicing coaches in Asia Pacific as some of the background research is drawn from the Asia Pacific region. There will be opportunities to ask questions about some of the key findings, such as coaching metaphors, coach education and the impact of new and emerging technologies on coaching.

    David and Christina will talk about three metaphors, ‘Wild West’, ‘Gold Rush’, and ‘Seafood Market’ that they uncovered during their research and discuss how these might act as images to help explain the global business of coaching.

    They will also discuss some of the questions and challenges that they set out to explore in their research with coaches:

    • How does coaching differ in a variety of cultural environments and how has it morphed from its original purpose of ‘life coaching’?
    • Is coaching a profession, or an industry? If considered a profession, what stage is coaching in terms of developing as a profession?
    • What tensions, if any, are there between coaching evolving as a profession and the economic imperative of coaching practitioners needing to earn sufficient income from coaching to survive? 

    The aim of the book

    Our aim in writing this book was to produce something that resonates with coach practitioners who want to develop their practice and stimulate a more reflexive approach to coaching, as well as provide a resource that can be used in coach education. In addition, provide a foundation for further questions and possible research into coaching as a field of study and as an emerging profession.

    We also wanted to uncover some of the tensions and challenges that practicing coaches face in Asia Pacific. In particular as other work suggests the over-reliance on a mono-cultural perspective, where one culture dominates the discourse of coaching and does not take into account the hidden differences that exist in coaching as a global practice.

    Webinar Invitation:

    Solution Focused Approach to
    Coaching Supervision

    with

    Annette Gray

    Tuesday 27th of October 2020

    Solution Focused Approach to Coaching Supervision

    Using a Solution Focus (SF) approach in coaching supervision is a little different to the traditional forms of Coaching Supervision. One of the key differences is in a more traditional approach we tend to reflect “on” the case brought forward by the coach by reflecting on what happened through conversation and thinking back to what may have happened through our memory of what happened.

    Solution Focus Supervision reflects “in” action where the coach brings along a video recording of their coaching (can be as little as 5 minutes) to use as a baseline of their coaching where they explore with the Supervisor what actually happens in action. This is where we will together explore what is already working and take a microanalysis view moment by moment of what actually happened in the conversation pinpointing all the “good stuff” and the place where they would like to grow or do it differently. This helps the coach to see themselves “in action” and what impact they have on the coachee and it creates an opportunity to actually see what works and to see other choices they could have made. In future Supervision sessions they would bring more video recordings to measure progress.

    This session will be experiential with a few coaches having an opportunity to “tag team” coaching Annette and then as a group we will explore the micro details of what worked through the lense of using Powerful Questions and a framework called Dialogic Orientation Quadrant developed by Haesun Moon in Toronto.
