Learning Lab: Creativity in Coaching

Learning Labs
September 15, 2020

Learning Lab #15

“Imagination is more important than knowledge” (Albert Einstein)

In an uncertain and unpredictable world, we need to challenge the existing boundaries to our work.  

Now, more than ever, it is useful for coaches to seek out new and inspirational subjects and tools to refresh their practice, explore the unknown, and support their clients in imagining new realities.  

Creativity in Coaching is designed by a coach and an artist.  

Emphasising creativity and imagination in the coaching arena can release useful and significant insights for clients, and influence how you shape your practice in challenging times.

Together Art and Coaching Release More. This experience combines the two disciplines of art and coaching to provide an inspiring model that reframes ideas about how coach and client work together.  

The shift away from words to drawings means clients can return to the coaching conversation with fresh insights and ideas about their issues.  

Drawing and imagining provide an innovative perspective.  

As the conversation alternates between verbal and visual ‘language’, this dynamic movement accesses a richer layer of meaning and taps into the resourcefulness of conscious thought and subconscious feelings.  

The coach creates a unique space for their client as the client dwells in feelings, uses non-verbal communication, finds direction within ambiguity and designs a different future.

- This session was designed by Lorraine Steele with Peter Moolan-Feroze
