ICF- Online Open Space

2020 has already challenged all of us, especially in the form of COVID 19. This is really a challenge, but also a chance to deal with the unknown for everybody. 

Dealing with the unknown and discovering opportunities within challenging situations is our stance as coaches while working with our clients. So how do we work with the unknown for ourselves? 

“First put on your own oxygen mask, before helping others.” Everybody knows this from airline safety announcements and, with this principle in mind, we’d like to invite you to an online Open Space forum where we will be supporting each other and checking in with our oxygen masks together.

This is an open forum and this means that the agenda, the main topics and conversations are decided by you, the attending participants. We are creating and holding the space for the support you need most right now. 

Facilitation: Christiane Kosub, Chapter Leader Base
                        James Woodson, Chapter Leader Zurich

Access will be limited in order to offer time and support to all. However, this is the first of more online open space gatherings in other languages coming soon.

Please check the information on the ICF webpage or on social media like Facebook and LinkedIn.
