Dear ICF members,

What is Peer Coaching and the value of attending?
Peer Coaching is a forum for professional coaches to share expertise, learn from other skilled practitioners and to get ‘unstuck’ in challenging coaching situations. It’s for coaches who have the desire to continually refine and build their professional skills, learn from others and want to contribute to the professional development of all coaches attending.

It involves following a facilitated process whereby a Case Presenter presents a current or recent coaching case and the Peer Coaches provide different perspectives on this case through questioning, remarking, summarizing and empathizing, but……not advising.

Please note that Peer Coaching sessions are only for practising coaches who are an ICF member and have a minimum of 60 hours coach training.

We will need Case Presenters who are willing to share their cases. So if you have an issue you would like some Peer Coaching on, please let us know in advance (peercoaching@icfsingapore.org) and we will follow up with you privately and provide you, when needed, with an example of a case.

As Peer Coaching involves coaches sharing real cases, we want to ensure confidentiality and therefore we will ask you to sign a confidentiality agreement upon arrival.

We look forward to welcoming you this to this engaging evening!

Connection Through Storytelling
By Bruce Home

Being a coach is all about connecting with your client. Without the connection, is it really possible to help them achieve their goals? So how do we make these essential connections with people? We communicate with people on a non-stop basis but are we connecting to them?

Storytelling has always been an essential medium for people to connect to each other. Our shared experiences and histories have been passed on through stories. People will always stop and take the time to listen to a story and thus the connection is made between the teller, the audience and the story.

This workshop will be all about trying new things and stretching ourselves. To begin with, participants will be challenged to learn a new skill (and its not storytelling – yet!) It will be something that everyone has seen, maybe even tried but often give up on, as it can be “too hard”. Think circus skills and be prepared to work both sides of your brain.

What is a storytelling session without a story being told? Bruce will share one of his stories, which will then be used by the group as a discussion point – What are the key elements of a story? How is a story structured in order to truly engage an audience? Where do we find the inspiration for a good story? How do we overcome the fear of telling stories and sharing personal details through story? Our goal will be for all participants to feel confident to try creating and sharing their own story with their clients.

But sitting and listening to a story then talking about it is not what this is all about. After opening the doors within ourselves, participants will be challenged to co-create a group story which they will share on the evening. Why not put yourself in the spotlight, dress up or use a prop in a creative way while developing a story together with your peers.

As a summary, we will talk about what we observed, provoked us, learned, felt and enjoyed while working with story. Our aim is to have fun with story, whilst developing new tools for working with clients.

Bruce Home

Originally from a small town in Quebec, Canada – where the best stories were told by local celebrities Johnny Golf Ball or Valmor the Newspaper Guy, Bruce never saw himself as a storyteller. In fact, early aspirations included being a cowboy and a fireman (it had a lot to do with the hats!)

Early professional life included working on the Toronto Stock Exchange where Bruce excitedly carried his new leather brief case to work each day filled with all the necessary tools for a days worth of trading – sports page of the local newspapers, brown bag lunch and rubber overshoes (just in case the walk back to the office was a bit slushy).

After a few years, the briefcase was traded in for a back pack where stories started to become a regular occurrence during long bike rides in various parts of the world and many hours spent in a tent (you can only play so many games of cards). A group of eager 4 and 5 year olds, in Seoul South Korea, were the catalyst to returning to university in order to become a teacher. It was in the classroom, at the Australian International School, the German European School and United World College, where stories began to flow as a way of creating community with the children, introducing new topics in all curriculum areas and helping to develop literacy skills. While serving as Head of Primary for 3 ½ years at the German European School, Bruce constantly wove stories into staff meetings and parent presentations. Connecting and engaging with an audience has always been his strength.

As co-Director of Camp Magic (an arts based holiday program here in Singapore), Bruce has led large whole camp performances for parents where storytelling is the corner stone. His ability to use humour and personal story are his strengths which are always enjoyed by the both parents and children.

By using story in his work, Bruce opens the doors for children and adults to explore their own personal stories as well as tap into their creative abilities. We all have a story to tell which is rich, powerful and interesting.

“ I WANT TO BE ICF CREDENTIALED ! “

Has this been a goal for a while, but you’re not really sure how to go about it?

November is all about Credentialing. At our monthly meeting in November we will support you with a number of resources so that you leave the meeting with a clear understanding of both the requirements and the process of applying for ICF credentialing whether it is for ACC, PCC or MCC level. This includes the Accredited Coach Training Pathway for ACC, as well as the Portfolio route for all 3 levels.

Deborah Lightwood will present the latest ICF Information on Credentialing and Susanne Goldenbeck will chair a panel of newly credentialed coaches will share their experiences, learning and insights. As a special treat Nancy Hughes, a past president of ICF Singapore, and ICF assessor will provide information, input, hints and tips from an assessor’s perspective. We will ensure you have plenty of time to ask questions to our panel and assessor to support your credentialing journey – so come prepared with any confusion and all your questions.

As a coach, you give full attention to your client and in the coaching process may ask her/him to be connected with her/his body.

But how much are you connected with your own body, how much do you give attention to your movements?

This workshop is designed to help you become aware of your body and of the way you move in your daily life.  

Using breath, vocal sounds, imageries and various other movement conditioning exercises, you will re-discover breathing, the joy of moving and new possibilities your body holds in expressing itself.

You will learn as well simple yet effective tools to keep this body awareness throughout your daily life. This conscious moving in turn will make you more centered and focus in your work, more receptive to your clients, and better equipped to handle stress .

Movements open new doors to the way you perceive yourself, beyond the limitations you might impose on yourself. Moving is a wonderful experience if we choose to make it that way!

So come to be surprised, come to have fun, come to reflect, come to find out your own “delicious movements”! This workshop will help you re-pattern your way of moving and  thinking. And you will eventually truly inhabit your body in an integrated and alive manner.

Biography Syv Bruzeau
Born in France. After a Master in Russian-English and marketing Syv came to Asia where she extensively traveled, following her curiosity to experience different cultures. She opened a few restaurants in the region and this passion for providing joy and bonding between people led her to movement therapy.

She practiced other movement-based and awareness techniques (Feldenkreis, Physical Theater, Continuum,  Alexander Technique, Body and Mind Centering) and is now sharing her experience through her own method Oneness Flow.

For Syv, movement is a creative, self-discovering and healing process. Conscious moving brings up a space of freedom and pure enjoyment. Conscious moving is a support for profound realization and transformation.
