Exploring Power and Privilege in the Coaching Profession

November 20, 2018 – 9 am to 4 pm
890 Yonge Street
9th Floor
Toronto, ON M4W 3P4

Like other professions, coaching is facing questions about equity and inclusion. Who coaches, who has access to coaching and how we can do a better job of expanding our understanding and approaches to include and meet the needs of a broader group of people? Most recently, the Association of Coach Training Organizations (ACTO) took a stand in addressing power, privilege and oppression (PPO) in the coach education field.

In this introductory workshop, we will explore ways to consciously and heart-fully take steps toward developing a practice that establishes increased trust and safety in our respective coaching practices. We’ll delve into the latest work in diversity, bias and power using storytelling, mindfulness and embodied practice.

To learn more and register:

Early bird pricing until October 20: $199 + hst

Indy Batth, Shannon Thompson and Louise Pitre are coaches, facilitators and consultants that ground their work in love and justice. They work with individuals, leaders and organizations to understand PPO and how to co-create a world where there is equitable access to power and resources.

They bring varied training (CTI, Royal Roads, ORSC, Neuroscience Coaching, Power Intelligence®, Deep Diversity®, Deep Democracy, Emotional Intelligence, Theatre for Living, Conflict Resolution) and different life experiences, but they share a mission to bring this conversation to the coaching community.
