Handling blocks in career coaching

*Particularly important for coaching clients post-COVID*

Using techniques to unblock clients

Next workshop: date to be announced. Please let us know your interest.

Learn some practical ideas, techniques and interventions for helping to manage coachees who are blocked. This can include coachees who:

  • are taking longer than they would like to get a new job
  • may be experiencing ‘Imposter syndrome’
  • ‘resist’ the career coaching process ( ie late for, or miss meetings, don’t complete tasks agreed
  • you find challenging for a range of reasons
  • feel overwhelmed by the enormity of the actions they need to take.

Drawing from our experience, and from Coaching theories, this workshop will equip you to be more confident to respond to ‘stuckness’, your own and that of your clients.

Activities will include:

  • Description and discussion of some useful unblocking techniques and approaches
  • Live demonstration with a workshop participant
  • Pairs practice (as coach and coachee) with tutor guided feedback.
