In Coaching or using a Coach Approach to relating, Curiosity is a foundational element in effecting the change that clients desire. Change does not happen without new thinking, new perspectives, new learning and challenging what is so. All of this is part and parcel of ‘being curious’. This conversation will explore how imperative it is for coaches to be experts at being and igniting curiosity in self and others. It will touch upon what can happen when we reignite and grow our own curiosity muscles. This will lay a foundation for the other elements of transformation that will be explored in the full conference offering of: Coaching Reimagined: Five Principles of Transforming Reality.
1. Understanding their own level of curiosity and how it influences perspectives and possibilities.
2. The importance of ‘not-knowing’ in coaching.
3. Practices to enhance curiosity in the Self-as-Coach.

What if coaching were a powerfully disruptive force to facilitate change on this planet? As a profession, we are long overdue for an update of our interpretations and stories of what it means to be and to coach human beings at this time on the planet. We need to disrupt and challenge the myths, assumptions and beliefs that we live and coach by. We must further develop our own awareness and consciousness to change and expand our own thinking, habits, biases and practices. This conversation will re-imagine coaching and touch on Five Principle elements that will support in challenging our boundaries as coaches, disrupting the status quo to influence transformational and sustainable change.
1. Your truth is not THE truth & your perception of reality only belongs to you.
2. We are connected in ways that are not always obvious.
3. Our biases and beliefs can be an obstacle to our impact as coaches.
