First Ever Bangkok Coach Bar

This evening the members of Resilient Minds participated in the first ever Bangkok Coach Bar, hosted by Fabienne Hansoul. Eight of us gathered together at an intimate cafe in Silom and furthered our own professional development. We sorted ourselves into triads and peer coached for 2 hours. The evening was rounded off with a plenary reflection session. Hoping for many more such fantastic evenings!

The Skills of Listening-Centered Communication

Mini-blog series 2 of 3 on Listening

 

With the understanding of the difference between hearing and listening arises a curiosity in how we actually listen. Some people are appreciated for their listening skills and some are criticised for their lack of listening skills. I find it interesting to reflect on what makes a good listener good.  Judi Brownell breaks down the listening process for us and offers the HURIER model for learning to listen.

 

Take a few minutes next time you are in a conversation or participating in a meeting and reflect on how you listen.  Do you recognise your own behaviour in the HURIER model?

Professional Devp: Group Coaching

Resilient Minds continues its professional development series. Today’s session was about Group Coaching.

 

We discussed the advantages and challenges of group coaching from both the client and the coach perspective. We reflected on the coaching process in a group, especially compared with individual coaching. We penetrated in detail the art of determining the agenda in group coaching. Above all, all the participants are thankful to Tatiana Skovoronskaya for sharing her expertise with us and inspiring us!
