As part of the International Coaching Federation’s (ICF) annual coaching week, Kapow Coaching are inviting internal and external coaches, along with anyone interested in coaching at work, to an open space event.

What’s an open space event you might ask?

It’s an event where people sharing a common interest, in this case coaching, come together and create an agenda based on the common questions, issues or themes that are shared amongst the group. There are no speakers, no pre-determined agenda and no fixed outcome. What it is, is a space to think, possibly experiment, share best practices and make connections with people who are passionate about the positive impact of coaching.

Who is it for?

Anyone who is curious about coaching to either find out more about it’s potential on a personal or business level, along with anyone who is a professional coach or internal coach to explore some of the common challenges and interests around the world of coaching. It is a chance to be part of a community of coaches for one day and to develop connections that go beyond the event.

What will the day be like?

Come along at 9.30 for a 10 am start where we will explore the shared topics before homing in on 3 to 6 key themes. The day will encourage you to explore the topic you are most drawn to and typically there will be 3 themes that you will be able to participate in during the day.

There will be a one hour lunch break for you to stretch your legs, or to network. Lunch is not provided, so bring along your own or buy in from any of the local eateries. The session will aim to finish at 4pm, again allowing you mingle time till 4.30pm. We will include a ‘brag corner’ for anyone to put up a business card or leaflets for others to explore in their own time; the open space is not a selling event but we’d like to extend the opportunity for you to raise awareness about what you offer.

Who are ICF and Kapow Coaching?

The ICF are one of the oldest coaching credentialing organisations, started in 1995 as a not-for profit organisation for fellow coaches to support the growing profession. Coaching Week was started in 1999 with an aim of educating the public of the value of working with a professional coach. Kapow Coaching, under Kate Flory, has over the years actively taken part in the International Coaching Week to promote the professionalism of coaching by organising coaching cafes, coaching health checks and experiences of some of the current coaching offers.
