I attended the Coaching for Conscious Leadership Programme in order to qualify as a coach, to give me a skill set that is wider than my current HR role – coaching & management development.
The programme taught me a great deal about myself including a better understanding of how I react in different situations such as when things are not going well compared to when things are going well. Becoming aware that I could control my view of what is happening – and help others change their mindset – was revelationary for me. I felt the change in how I was being from the first module. It was different each session and by the third module I was in a really good place.
The programme has had a huge impact on me at work. What I learned about myself and dealing with other people has aIlowed me to be more focused on what really matters and not let things/other people’s attitudes bother me. I particularly noticed this shift after Module 3 which aims to get you really comfortable in your own shoes so that you can focus on what matters.
I am conscious that I am still processing and deepening my learning. I know that my behaviours will continue to change. However my organisation has already benefited from sending me on this course. There are two or three people I am about to start coaching within the organisation: one post-maternity, one who is uncertain about their future and another who needs to build their self-confidence.
