Coaching Café Day, Group 2 (Cantonese Session) - Leadership Coaching
In one of the TED presentations, Bill Gates said," Everyone needs a coach, it doesn't matter you are a basketball player, a tennis player or a gymnast. We all need feedback from others because that's how we improve".
How about leaders ?
What is Coaching?
Coaching is a guided and structured conversation to assist you with your thinking and goal setting. While this is a supportive and informal engagement, it is not a casual chat.
Coaching usually start with an organic conversation while it is structured and facilitated by the coaches. Throughout the session, the coach will listen for what is important, throw-out powerful & probing questions for the client and it usually helps the client to end up the coaching session with insights, reflection, learning or actions. So coaching conversation is highly targeted for a specific purpose. It is all client's oriented.
In a first for Hong Kong, the four largest coaching organizations in Hong Kong (HKCO, ICFHK, IACHK, HKICC) have decided to come together to host the first ever inter-organizational Joint Coaching Café.
Schedule, Fee and Venue:
Date: 29th June, 2013 (Sat)
Time : 9:30am – 12:30pm (Please check different group’s time slot)
Place : Paragon Culture and Conference Hong Kong
Address: 23/F, The Pemberton, 22-26 Bonham Strand, Sheung Wan
Drink Fee : HK$50 pay at the door (Coffee and Tea counter at self-service) - Both the coach and coachees pay to support the expenses of the event.
Something for the participants:
Each session will be 30 minutes long, where each participant will bring an issue he/she wish to be coached on by one of our volunteer coaches. You will be asked to complete a pre-coaching form (a pre-requisition) to help us match you with the most suitable coach and also help your coach have some understanding of your issue in mind. To ensure you gain the most out of the coaching session, only participants who have sent in their form at least 3 days before their session will be allowed to participate. You are also requested to arrive 15 mins prior to your assigned slot for a pre-coaching briefing. After your session, you are welcome to stay behind to mingle with other participants.
Please note, as per intention of these coaching cafes, priority will be given to non-coaches, especially those who have not experience coaching before. If there are more coachees than slots available, coaches will be put on the waitlist first and notified if there are slots available.
