The Coaching Experience: Moving from awareness to action by reinventing our assumptions

Speaker: Daniel Meier, Executive Coach, ICF Professional Certified Coach (PCC), Founder of Solutionsurfers®, Luzern

Description and objectives

With the Brief Coaching approach it often only takes one coaching session to move from awareness to action!

In this highly interactive and practical session we will focus, explore and experiment our own assumptions: assumptions about progress, how resourceful and powerful we are, and last but not least, how these assumptions influence the length and the success of our work. Engaging in different short experiments and brief coaching sessions, we will explore the importance and the influence of these assumptions in our daily work. We will discover, how just by changing our mindset, we can gain more precision and advance with easiness
