This session takes experienced coaches through a provoking process to challenge their existing preconceptions about their role and approach as a coach. Julie will offer alternative perspectives on coaching as a profession, and suggest principles and practices we can adopt to strengthen and deepen our impact with clients. Come prepared to listen, work and share.

From John Whitmore, author of Coaching For Performance:
“I have known Julie for many years, she has been a very experienced coach for a long time. She has written two excellent books on coaching. She is unusually broad and innovative in her way of thinking. Julie reaches far beyond the somewhat rigid academic methods of coaching and is one of the few expert coaches that I would seek for myself to provide coaching. She readily takes coaching deeper into personal development which is increasingly necessary in this challenging world of business and in the more complex global issues that face much of humanity now.”
