Gender and sexuality in coaching

Webinar: Why Keep it in the Bedroom? How Gender and Sexuality Matter in Coaching Conversations

Do you limit your allyship to LGBT+ people by displaying Pride flags and sharing your pronouns – while keeping your coaching focused on the workplace? If so, you’re missing a large chunk of people’s skills and resources.

By being uninterested or blind to what a person is doing outside the office, coaches are missing a significant part of the picture. This webinar will discuss why expanding your viewpoint as a coach is important to help your clients achieve their goals.

We’ll consider:

• when to bring up gender and sexuality in coaching conversations

• what questions to ask

• how to set appropriate limits for sharing information in both directions

Who Should Attend?

This webinar will be primarily for coaches but will also be useful for anyone who uses coaching methodologies in leadership or development. It will also be of benefit to anyone who wishes to gain insight into experiences that LGBT+ people encounter in organisations, and those who seek to draw the best out of the people they work with.

The fee for the webinar is £30 (incl. VAT) (10% discount for Henley alumni; free for Coaching Centre members).
