What is Eco-Coaching?
At the moment humanity is out of balance with its own eco-system. This is because we’ve been using ego-logical systems and ideologies at the expense of ecological ones.
The personal development field has been dominated by ‘What I think’ & ‘What I want’ over ‘What we think’ ‘What will the impacts be?’ & ‘What else could we do?’
We’ve built systems based on the mechanistic, linear and hierarchical ever since technological gave some bloke an advantage at the beginning of the agrarian revolution 13,000 years ago. If we want to survive and thrive going forward, we’ll need to see creative collaboration as a new form of leadership.
Eco-Coaching redresses the balance by highlighting the eco-system you and I operate within and are an integral and interdependent part of.
We’ll have to show up differently by:
- Switching from decision-making to leading out potential.
- Cultivating egalitarian relationships that are inclusive and generous.
- Using ecology-checks with emotional intelligence in communication
As a your guide, I will help you navigate the various elements of your eco-system and domains which include behaviours, beliefs, feelings, relationships, environment in context to your past, present and future.
This will help you feel empowered to achieve your goals and overcome challenges, fears and traumas that may have been inhibiting you from living your authentic life.
I’ve coached internationally, all manner of people, leaders, teams and other coaches and I facilitate corporate retreats, events, workshops and walkshops.
Eco-Coaching and Facilitation can be utilised online, face-to-face and if possible, out in nature for 4 reasons:
-Whilst walking side-by-side in nature we begin to feel a level of connection, and as we exercise our legs and our lungs, we begin to release beneficial neurotransmitters. One in particular is Anandamide. Anandamide derives from the Sanskrit word for bliss and it opens our blood vessels allowing oxygen and nutrients to flow more easily around our body and brain. It also makes us more creative.
-The natural world has 3.8 billion years of evolutionary wisdom embedded. Being amongst it allows a skilled coach to utilise examples of the natural world as a metaphor during the conversation.
-We were designed to look over wide vistas. When we look at small screens and work in cubicles, it narrows our perspective and as a result our options.
-It’s just an enjoyable and rejuvenating experience.
