action methods in coaching

A 3 Day Experiential Workshop for Coaches Looking to Bring Vitality & Immediacy to Their Work – Sydney

  • You are a competent coach, reasonably effective with a range of clients..
  • Your frameworks and approaches work, but do not always generate the level of engagement and enthusiasm you would like…
  • You are interested in learning something new..
  • What if you could generate more freshness and life in your coaching sessions?
  • What if you could work more directly with what is presented the here and now?

What to Expect

At the heart of Action Methods is the belief that within each of us lies a creative genius – within you as a coach and within your client. A creative genius that can rise up and meet a new challenge, or develop a fresh response to an old problem. But at times our genius, our spontaneity, our creativity is blocked. We get stuck in our old problems and old habits, sometimes without even realising it!

If our coaching clients can access their inherent spontaneity and creativity and bring that to the situation they are facing then our work together is much more vital and immediate. It is both more effective and rewarding. To do this we, as coaches, also have to access our own spontaneity and creativity.

The concepts and tools that support this  are relatively simple yet profound.The cornerstone of the method is concretisation– a ‘show don’t tell’ approach – generating an experience that unifies thought, feeling and action, thus deepening and enriching learning and change outcomes.

This workshop will introduce you to the fundamentals of the method, its four branches of Psychodrama, Sociometry, Sociodrama and Role Training, and explore IN ACTION how you might incorporate and apply them to bring new vitality and immediacy to your coaching practice.

The workshop will be highly experiential, utilising your real coaching situations as a crucible for learning.

You can expect to:

  • Learn about the core concepts and techniques of the Action Methods methodology, in a coaching relationship context.
  • Deepen your capacity to recognise and work with the moment by moment functioning of your client and yourself.
  • Experience and practise techniques to support your clients in heightening their awareness and spontaneity.
  • Exploring current situations and developing new behaviours/solutions.
  • Expanding awareness of self at individual, team and organisational levels.
  • Concretising Sociometry – key relationships and their role system – to understand key relationships.
  • Warming up to development of progressive roles.
  • Building congruence in thoughts, feelings and action.
  • Experience the power of action to heighten awareness and spontaneity.
  • Explore application of Action techniques to deepen and enhance your core coaching competencies.
