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 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 the wonderful and energetic Catherine Bell to the Lab. I’ve met Catherine at a meaning conference in Vancouver in 2018 and since been infatuated with her authentic, bubbly and highly professional being. I can’t wait to see her coach!

About Catherine:

Since 2001, Catherine has dedicated her life towards helping others shine. After early career success in business, Catherine moved to Kyoto, Japan for a working holiday at 25. Quickly rising past English Teacher, Catherine became a Trainer & Coach for 750 international staff in a $3 million educational program, helping others tap into their unique strengths for better results at work and in life. Returning to Australia, Catherine worked in senior corporate HR roles before starting her business in 2010.

Her style incorporates traditional Coaching, the science of Applied Positive Psychology, Strengths, NLP and HeartMath to serve the diverse needs of her government, NFP and corporate clients. A respected Coach Trainer, Catherine has trained over 1,000 new Coaches and currently serves on the ICF Australasia Leadership Team. Through her business giving partner B1G1 she has made over 100,000 impacts, supporting projects to fight poverty and create wellbeing for people around the world. With a special interest in EI, Resilience and Leadership, Catherine has presented her work at the INPM Global Summit (2018), the IPPA World Congress (2019) and the Victoria University Leadership Conference (2020).

Catherine is positive, courageous and refreshingly down-to-earth – helping clients uncover their strengths, rise above challenges and embrace the adventure in their lives.

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
  • 9:00 Sharing Insights
  • 9:30 Finish

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.
