Masterclass, 5th October, 2022, 14.00 to 17.00 BST

Appreciative Coaching with a focus on applying Strengths and Hope in your coaching practice

Facilitator: Dr Ceri Sims

This masterclass provides an opportunity to develop appreciative approaches in your coaching practice based on an application of Appreciative Inquiry to coaching using key principles and practices from Positive Psychology.

Participants will be shown how to bring strengths-based conversations and measures to support the development of constructive personal narratives during the ‘Discovery’ phase of appreciative coaching.

Positive methods for adopting a future based ‘Dream’ at the second phase will also be explored, as well as learning and practicing ways of bringing a Hope theory inspired approach to helping the coachee ‘Design’ their valued goals at the next phase.

These approaches can be helpful for coaching conversations in both work and non-work settings and for both individual and group-based coaching.
