Witness experienced coaches in action as part of a live coaching session. Ask questions. Hear their reflections. Practice what you learn. Live and via our Vault of recorded sessions.
Occasionally you’ll find a decent coaching session, but mostly it’s of questionable quality, clearly staged, or lacking any useful reflections shared after.
Then there’s your training, where all the coaching you saw was likely by your peers. Or if you got lucky and your trainer demo’d something, it was probably just a few minutes.
The real problem is that it’s difficult to imagine how the principles and theories from your training and textbooks apply when you sit in front of your clients. While you may be discussing how each session went in your peer network or with your coach supervisor, you probably find yourself craving more exposure to different coaching styles, approaches and global perspectives.
The truth is that you’ll hardly get the chance to witness a master coach at work. Or the space to understand how certain decisions were made, and how the coaching session really landed with the client. Your average training program doesn’t dive deep into the trenches. It doesn’t offer you a window into global perspectives and approaches to coaching.
Hey, I am Yannick. I am an existential coach and a coach supervisor. I teach coaching at Cambridge University and and coaching supervision at the International Centre for Coaching Supervision.
The short story is that I love helping coaches learn. I’m passionate about creating communities in which we connect, grow and learn together. I’ve worked with and helped new and seasoned coaches in various capacities for over a decade. I challenge those I am with to ponder, discuss, wrestle and engage with new ways of thinking and being.
It was clear to me that we need an event that’s dedicated to just that!
A space where we invite experienced coaches for a real-time coaching session. As you get to be a fly on the wall and watch it live, you get to hear the client’s and coach’s reflections, dissect them with other coaches, extract insights and cement those in breakout practice rooms.

At this point (2023), we’re over 45 Labs and over 3 years into this journey, and we love what it has become. Over time we’ve built a sizable Vault of recorded sessions which are a well-spring of learning and development and available to our members to freely dig into.
It’s called a “Lab” for a reason! We take the science attitude seriously.
Sometimes that means the whole thing blows up in your face – but as long as we talk about what just happened and make sense of it together, we learn, we grow.
So it isn’t necessarily about the quality of the coaching session, or the results created during the session. It’s about finding the what, why and how. There’s ALWAYS excellent learning in every single lab and we’re excited that you get to be a part of it.
Inside the Coaching Lab, we’ll facilitate the conversation and, together with the featured coach on the day, explain the occasional coaching model, theory, process or intervention where appropriate.

There’s no better opportunity to experience closely what great coaching can do and the kind of shifts it can create for clients.
– Clive leach, Executive coach
This lab is for coaches who want to learn and grow their skills over a long time. That’s why I invite you to stay longer and let yourself be challenged and surprised by the wealth of experiential learning in these sessions.
If you are with me, now is the time to make a choice. You can meander through the half baked coaching demos or you can be a fly on the wall and witness this immersive and inspiring coaching experience with the Coaching Lab.
PS: Non-coaches, curious about what coaching might look and feel like or keen to get some free coaching from our members during the practice breakouts, are more than welcome!
PPS: If you would like to get some free coaching from one of our invited guests, and you wouldn’t mind an (invisible) audience, you can apply to be a client for one of our invited coaches here.
