This workshop is based on the Ontological Coaching model* which is an extraordinarily powerful methodology for generating real change at the individual, team and organizational level. It is highlyeffective because it is based on a new practical understanding of the power of language, moods and conversations for sustainable behavioural and cultural change.

Way of Being

*Ontological Coaching focuses on our Way of Being which is a dynamic interrelationship between three areas of human existence – language, emotions and body. Way of Being contains our often deep-seated perceptions and attitudes and is the underlying driver of our behavior and communication.

Effectiveness in our personal and professional life, and the quality of our existence, is indelibly shaped in our Way of Being.

This practical workshop is interactive and provides insight and skills to empower us for a better way of living.

At the end of the workshop, you will be able to:

* Identify what makes for a “poor performing organisation”

* Apply foundation solutions to these problems including two key levers that you can pull to address them.

o Managing Self and

o Leading Others.

Both levers are based on how you can ‘use and shift’ your own Way of Being to achieve the results you seek.
