Worum es bei uns geht

The Holding Space is a generative experiential learning space for people who coach, mentor or facilitate others. The intent is to build a community and organise events to build ongoing professional capabilities.

What can I expect?

At a Holding Space event you can expect guest coaches or facilitators to explore with you in-depth a coaching skill or topic, followed by practice and exercises. The learning is mainly experiential. That means working on your own with yourself, with others in pairs, small groups or in open space-type activities.

Why do we care about ‘holding space’?

We all affect space, whether we are aware of it or not. Through our coaching role, presence and behaviour, we determine the quality of space that we interact in with others. Holding space is a subtle skill. It is not taught to us at school. It’s something about stepping out of the centre of the conversation and ‘taking in’ the wider field. By being aware of the wider field, we can create spaces that feel held, purposeful and charged with energy, so people are called forward to do things they never thought they could do.

What is our focus?

Applying our work in context
People practice coaching in a variety of circumstances. From being a parent or
teacher through to supporting people be their best version of themselves be it at
work, rest or play. The Holding Space is an inclusive environment where we can
learn from different contexts.

Ongoing skills development
The Holding Space is about deepening our coaching skills beyond the standard
coaching education. We often have limited access to connect with other practitioners
and ongoing coaching skills development, whether you are:
● a successful coach,
● transitioning into coaching or
● you are employed in a role where you apply coaching

Expanding awareness
Coaching models and tools are one thing - it’s our way of being that attracts people
to work with us. The Holding Space is about how we shape ‘our way of being’ so that
we can thrive individually and in the community.

By calling it the Holding Space we set the intention to co-create the conditions for a
light, generative and safe holding space where you can just be, grow and resource
yourself to thrive and in so doing also the people you touch.

what makes you unique as a coach? A morning lab for independent coaches

Raum für Neues | Somatic coaching

A Season of focus on Growing your Coaching Practice. Lab One gives a chance to explore together what makes us unique as a coach. How do we talk about? How do we express what makes us different from all the other coaches out there? We want it to be easy for the people who are looking for what we uniquely have to offer can find us don't we? Many of us hesitate to about ourselves and dread the idea of being 'salesy' or 'pushy' yet getting our message out there is key to letting others access the unique gifts we bring to the world. If the people who want our support can't find us they loose out too. Who is this for? Independent Coaches, Mentors or Facilitators This lab is the first of 5 in this season - there is one each month September 2019 to January 2020. New for this season we are also trying out repeating the lab at an evening time-slot. So you can join at whatever time works best for you. What happens at a Holding Space Lab? We explore a topic together, sharing perspectives, tips, tool, working in small groups, sharing, being supportive. Our aim is that you leave the lab resourced differently than when you walked in. You have ideas to reflect on and the confidence to try something new out (if you want) For this season we are experimenting with the concept of the gift economy - which means we host our labs as a 'gift' - you are free to decide how much of 'gift' if any you wish to reciprocate with. We trust that you'll know the value to you.

Asking for what we need to have a sustainable coaching practice? An Evening Lab

Asking for what we need is easy right? If only it was that easy we wouldn't find ourselves holding back or putting off making the marketing calls or following up on the ideas to grow our coaching practices. In this second lab in this season we will explore ways to find that inner confidence to ask for what we need. We'll also look at ways to embody more of what we want. Getting the results we want is as much about how we come over to potential business partners or clients - much of what we communicate is less about the words we speak (although don't get us wrong - they are important) and more about the clarity of intent, what we embody as well as the energy and conviction with with we convey our message. This Holding Space lab is a chance to play with some of these ideas and try out what's different we adopt a different way of communicating the same words and what it feels like to receive a message when the speaker talks from a different place. If the group would wants, we can extend our exploration into talking about pricing and asking for higher rates (if that's one of your goals) with ease. How would it be if you left this lab geared up and determined to get one more client in whatever timescale you want? Maybe with the support of one other attendee you and a 'learning buddy' will hold each other accountable to keep practicing and stay focussed on this goal until it is realised - once ..... twice .... maybe more? It's up to you really. Who is this for? Independent Coaches, Mentors or Facilitators This lab is the second of 5 in this season - there is one each month September 2019 to January 2020.
