About this workshop

Executives, senior managers, high performance employees and entrepreneurs work, and usually live, inside certain envelopes of responsibility, stress and accountability. As they do this, they are no different biologically to anyone else, so they are prone to the same kinds of physical and mental health challenges as any other human being.

Working as an executive coach requires that the coach is able to integrate all aspects of their clients human experience including the issues of illness, behavioural health challenges and breakdown due to stress.

The coach needs to be able to help their client, where necessary, to develop a recovery to wellness path, fulfil it and access and maintain wellness as a ground for their performance. This ability distinguishes the coach from others and provides the basis for an expanded practice within the largest potential coaching niche currently developing internationally.
Typically these are seen as medical problems that require medical model interventions and as such fall outside of the main responsibility of any executive or business coach.

However, in this workshop we will first show you why integrating these issues and what is going on with your clients in the area of their health (and of those of the people close to them), is crucial to their success and performance impacting on everyone from the shareholders to work colleagues and of course impacting the bottom lines. This is linked to your performance as the executive coach.

Second, we will introduce you to the coaching model that underpins how we work with human health and how that helps us both coach executives through a 'recovery' process and integrates their wellness with their professional and personal objectives.

Third, we will introduce you to the key concepts, coaching approaches and tools that will allow you to include these human health aspects into your coaching contract with your client.

What you will learn?

  1. How human health affects clients, Executive coaching and Executive coaches - overview of the neuroscience.
