Coaching and Climate Change

May 21, 2020

Climate Change is one of the most daunting problems that we face today. Every single one of us is responsible, and every single one of us can do our bit to help better the situation. In early March, the Climate Coaching Alliance held a 24 hour global Zoomathon to discuss how coaches can help.

The Climate Coaching Alliance was started in 2019 to bring together coaches, coaching psychologists, and coaching supervisors, facilitators and other leading professionals in order to co-create a space to share resources, explore the practice, and hold dialogue on preserving our climate.

About the Webinar

How do we make the difference our earth is calling for? – Mindset shifts for coaches

Coronavirus has given us a very different view of the depth of interconnectivity across all elements of our society and the natural world. There have been truly transformational responses to the pandemic that are allowing us insights into what we might hope will emerge when this pandemic subsides. How do we take this opportunity to transfer the learning to the unfolding crisis that climate change presents? In this webinar, we explored how the more-than-human world of our shared ecology can be a conscious part of every coaching conversation.

How do we:

  • Recognize the interdependencies?
  • Raise climate impacts with clients who might not be aware or might not want to go there?
  • Operate in this space respectfully and ethically that augments and illuminates the coaching client agenda?
  • Make this deeply systemic work, where we as coaches step into a space of leadership, financially viable?
