Meeting Topic: Start 2012 with a bang : Develop your personalized Coaching Matrix

Within the Meta-Coaching methodology, there are number of models. This session will serve as a brief introduction to the overall Meta-Coaching methodology, and will focus on The Matrix Model.

Understanding how The Matrix operates enable us to coach the entire mind-body-emotion system. The session will explain how The Matrix allows us to understand how we create the structure and content of our thinking. The Structural matrices include Meaning, Intention and State. The Content matrices are where we house the meanings we create of Ourselves, Others, our World, our Powers and Time.

Attendees will then apply the Matrix theory by constructing their own personalized Matrix of themselves as a Coach. They will walk away with a written plan which will guide them in their optimal development of their skills, mind-state, beliefs and intentions.

Learning outcomes for members:

  • Understand what the term 'meta' means in the context of the Meta-Coaching methodology
  • Understand the difference between the 'Structural' and 'Content' Matrices
  • Apply the Matrix theory by constructing a personalized Matrix of themselves as a Coach
  • Investigate optimal mind states, values, beliefs of 'Self as Coach' 
  • Set in place a blueprint / plan for their coaching practice in 2012

Meeting Topic:  Comedy for Coaches!

This 60-minute session will introduce the participants to the fundamentals of comic improvisation via exercises that improvisers use to develop their mental agility, their spontaneity, their self-trust, and their acceptance of the ideas of others. The exercises are always done in pairs or small groups, and are perfect for helping clients loosen up and engage with others in productive ways.

Participants will above all have a very entertaining time trying out these exercises and seeing what sorts of stories and situations arise. They will also go home with some great tools they can use in both their professional and their personal lives.

Speaker Profile:
Alison Lester is Director of AJ Lester Communication Training, and specializes in helping professionals develop their ability to engage with others in meaningful and productive ways. While she has an advanced degree in Chinese studies, it is her experience as a stand-up and improvisational comedian that has been of paramount importance in her ability to maintain access to her brain under pressure, and to guide people to enjoy the same type of self-trust that on-the-spot self-management requires. Born and educated in the United States, she has spent over 20 years living in Asia (Beijing, Taipei, Tokyo and Singapore), and is committed to continuing her search for what types of communication work best with what types of people, and how, and when, to adapt.

She is also the author of four books. Locked Out: Stories Far From Home (a collection of short stories) was published in 2006. Present for Success and Communication: Your Key to Success (co-authored with Shirley Taylor) were published in 2009. This year, she published her collection of essays on communication. It is entitled Restroom Reflections: How Communication Changes Everything.

In view of the success with the September session of “Group Coaching Supervision”, Peer Coaching is once more thrilled to be able to bring you another session in Supervision, this time facilitated by Denise Wright, CEO (Chief Energising Officer) of Xtend Coaching International.

Denise is studying to become a professional coaching supervisor through the Bath Consulting Group (UK)’s Coaching Supervision Certificate Course, hosted by the Civil Service College Singapore. Many organizations across Europe require executive coaches to be professionally supervised, either one-on-one or in a group setting. This is increasingly considered important not just for new coaches learning the ropes, but also for experienced coaches. Supervision is the professional way of making sure that we do not end up in ineffective coaching relationships, rather focusing on giving our clients the best quality coaching experience that we are able. As coaches we are also prone to get ‘tangled up’ when working with certain clients; for example: A client facing challenges with "buy-in" to his/her ideas, who sees himself/herself as a good "problem solver" may unconciously evoke the "problem solver" in the coach, to go down the path of brainstorming-problem-solving, instead of coaching to uncover and work on the real issue!

Hence, supervision is a fundamental element of continuing personal and professional development for coaches. The three legs of Supervision include:

• Continuing development of the coach
• Quality assurance of a coach’s overall practice
• Supervision of specific activity with a client

Request for a Volunteer!

We are calling for 1 volunteer to come prepared with a case they would like to bring to supervision as the Case Presenter. This is a great opportunity for you to receive the benefits of coaching supervision in a safe learning environment supported by the coaching supervisor and your peers.

Please send an email to by Wednesday 9 November 2011 if you would like to volunteer. More information on case presentation will be provided once we hear from you.
