About this Event

Welcome to Yannick’s Coaching Lab!

Every 1st Tuesday of the month we get together to observe a live coaching demo, followed by a debrief and discussion together with the coach and client, and a chance to practice and experiment in triads in breakout rooms afterwards. You’ll get to learn from interesting and experienced practitioners, connect with other coaches and generally have some fun and experiment in a safe and confidential environment.

Your host for the evening

Your host and facilitator is Yannick Jacob, professional coach, trainer and supervisor with over 10 years of experience. Yannick is a published coaching author, teaching faculty at The School of Life and former Programme Leader of the MSc Coaching Psychology at the University of East London.

Featured Coach

This month we welcome Clive Leach to the Lab. For years Clive and I taught on the same programme (MAPPCP) at the University of East London. But we’ve never seen each other coach, so I’m excited to see him in action and get a chance to talk about his approach as a group.

About Clive:

Clive is an international organisational, executive, leadership and career coach working extensively within the Corporate & Public sectors. Drawing on his studies in Coaching Psychology and Positive Psychology Clive applies coaching to enhance individual and team well-being engagement, leadership development, career transition and mental toughness. He is regularly told he brings great energy, he is good to work with and that he makes a positive difference.

Clive’s coaching clients are drawn from many parts of the world and a wide range of professional disciplines and include leaders within multinational organisations, international agencies and schools.

Clive keeps abreast of the latest evidence-based coaching approaches through attendance and participation at world’s leading conferences. He has spoken widely on issues relating to coaching psychology, coaching, leadership and organisational well-being at numerous global and regional events, most recently at the Australian Conference on Evidence-based Coaching 2020 and the World Congress on Positive Psychology 2019. Clive is published author featuring in highly regarded organisational coaching publications for Routeledge, Sage and in the International Journal of Evidence-based Coaching & Mentoring.

A former Education services leader in the UK, Clive studied at the University of Sydney Coaching Psychology Unit under Prof. Tony Grant and Dr. Suzy Green. He is currently a visiting lecturer teaching ‘Coaching in Professional Contexts’ and ‘Individual Perspectives in Wellbeing’ on the world’s first MSc Applied Positive Psychology & Coaching Psychology (MAPPCP) at the University of East London.

About the Lab:

Join us for an inside-look into the inner workings of coaching, find out how and why coaches make certain decisions and how they choose their interventions. You get to witness how the client is experiencing different coaching approaches and we hope you’ll get lots of inspiration for your own coaching practice.

After the fishbowl and discussion you’ll get a chance to work in triads (coach, client, observer) with the other attendees so that you can take your insights and ideas for a spin, experiment with some new tools and techniques or simply practice some coaching and get some valuable feedback on your work from fellow professional or curious lay clients. Talking about coaching in small groups and sharing our learning with the rest of the group afterward will help us all grow our understanding, knowledge and coaching skills.

Plan for the evening:

  • 6:30 Welcome and networking
  • 6:45 Live coaching session
  • 7:30 Debrief & group discussion
  • 8:15 Optional practice sessions in triads/breakout rooms

Session recordings – where coach and client give their permission for the session to be used for training purposes (they will have 1 week post-event to veto or request edits), recordings will be made available to members, ticket holders of the event as well as ticket holders of the following event. This also means that by participating in the Q&A and discussion you agree to be recorded.
