There’s nothing quite like getting together with like-minded people to learn and explore new ideas. In addition to hosting our own events, we partner with other organisations that are enabling people, nature and society to flourish

Coaching with Natural Systems

Coaching with Natural Systems: Evolve Your Practice

How do we as coaches who care about nature bring that care to our practice?

 As humans, we are part of a natural system: The Earth. Yet our thinking and actions have taken us out of harmony with life. The convergence of Covid-19, our ecological crisis and the failing economy is creating urgency within business and society to pivot to a more sustainable model. Yet whilst ambition for net zero and the urge towards action is mounting, making good decisions that take account of the many interdependent challenges that this involves is harder than ever.

 As coaches we can play a powerful role in helping business and community leaders, our clients, make sense of and act into these challenges, to positively engage with them and transition their organisations and institutions to a world that works for everyone.

 By recentring our relationship with natural systems like this, we expand the possibilities for more systemic and deeper relational understanding and insight, with ourselves and with others. In the process we become more grounded, more creative in the options we can conceive, and more resilient: all prerequisites for the work that lies ahead.

 Talik & Co, in partnership with Earthself, developed a 4-month virtual program for experienced coaches that will help your coaching practice evolve in harmony with the natural world around you. It will offer you a reflective space to explore your coaching practice, your current understanding of the challenges facing humanity and equip you with additional skills to help people, society and nature flourish.

Following the success of our first program we are launching our second cohort.

Accelerating Leadership - Decarbonise Your Culture

14:00 - 16:00 Wednesday 17th November 2021. Hybrid event in partnership with UKGBC in London.

With Dr. Alexandra Stubbings, Managing Director and Larry Stubbings, Associate Director

What’s the toughest obstacle to achieving net zero in your business? Maybe it’s in materials, processes, design? How about your culture? One of the toughest obstacles leaders tell us they have is creating cultural conditions – the mindset and collective behaviour – they need to drive innovation and transformation at the speed their science-based targets demand.

Hot on the heels of COP26, this workshop will develop leaders’ skills for driving cultural transformation, such as designing effective systemic change programmes, leading from purpose and powerful storytelling. Bringing insights from neuroscience, psychology and applied research as well as live examples drawn from frontline experience in major organisations, you’ll leave with some potent tools to engage your organisation to accelerate action towards net zero.

In this workshop, we explore the need to accelerate sustainability leadership, and discuss the collaboration and behaviours needed to create systems change in our sector. This session aims to promote and provide greater reach and access to leadership insights wider than the UKGBC leadership programmes which target specific cohorts and associates’ outcomes.

An initial preview of the ‘UKGBC leadership companion’ – a playbook for sustainability leadership – will also be provided.

Who should attend

This workshop is aimed to support all levels of leadership across the built environment to inject inspiration and learnings during these busy times.

Why attend

At the end of the workshop you will have had a whistle stop tour through storytelling, influencing change, systems leadership as well as practical conversations around mindsets and behaviours needed to accelerate leadership in our sector. All of which we hope enables you as a leader to take new and more radical approaches.

The session will be run as a hybrid event, with the face to face component taking place via the UKGBC offices. 

You can book your place via Eventbrite.

There are free Gold Leaf spaces available for this course. Email learning@ukbgc.org to register.
