Rhythm, Energy Space and Time - Drawing Inspiration from the Arts in how we coach
Are you looking for new ways to help your clients gain deeper insight into what surrounds them? Being in the moment is a key skill today, but as we all know, it’s often hard to do when under pressure.
In this session, we will explore how you can help your clients gain a deeper level of awareness and understanding by helping them to apply the mindset of a performing artist and the elements they consider critical for a performance such as preparation, delivery, and audience experience.
We will share with you learning from research conducted with Dulcinea – a classical string quartet and we will introduce you to a newly formed model called REST (Rhythm, Energy, Space and Time). We will also collaborate, using breakouts, to build a “RESTful Coaching” approach for us all. We would like you to:
- feel supported by the constituent elements of the REST model, as a complementary set of coaching tools
- draw inspiration from the emotional intelligence (EQ) that artists and performers bring to their work
- help clients experience and apply a useful model for being in the moment
- enrich your coaching conversations by enabling new insights that inform development and growth
