Annual Event & AGM

A half-day of creativity and improvisation in Zurich

Feeling comfortable with the uncomfortable:
Creativity in Coaching

Effective coaching requires a lot of curiosity and a learning mindset, and coaches often have to stretch themselves. What makes you uncomfortable as a coach? Marketing & selling your services? Approaching new prospects? Facing the client's sudden emotional burst during a coaching session? Or asking for your fees? How well are you aware of your own uncomfortable situation?

Each one of us can learn how to build confidence through creativity when faced with an uncomfortable situation. This event represents a unique opportunity to share experience and enjoy creativity in coaching with a community of passionate coaches.
