Coaching: With the Earth in Mind – an experimental tool

15 July @ 09:00 AM (BST)

With the Earth in Mind is a systemic framework to help people to increase their awareness of their relationship with and responses to climate change and ecological decline so they can become more intentional, purposeful and proactive. It can be used by and with individuals for personal exploration, with coaches and coaching supervisors for professional supervision, and with coachees, teams, groups and leaders of communities and organisations. It can be freely used (with attribution) for personal or professional use, including commercial use.

Participants will have the chance to explore the model, experiment together and take it away to test it out, if desired, with their peers, supervisees or clients, and to join our User community on Linked In to help in testing it out and developing it further. (20 places max)

The Courage to Confront

Real social change comes from having the courage to take part in conversations that confront challenges head on, says conversation strategist Nozipho Tshabalala.

Find out how personal trauma led Nozipho to make a career out of moderating courageous conversations when you watch the second in the Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation’s 2021 TutuTalks series.

Nozipho is an internationally acclaimed conversation strategist who is in demand for her rare and insightful ability to facilitate difficult conversations with courage, depth and breadth. She has worked with the World Bank and the Global Citizen international advocacy group, a movement that aims to catalyse action to end extreme poverty across the world by 2030.

The Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation is using the TutuTalks series to look differently at unresolved issues within civil society and uncover what moral and ethical leadership entails. The intention is not only to spread ideas, but also to empower young African leaders.

How to be a good ancestor with Roman Krznaric

Our descendants own the future, but the decisions and actions we make now will tremendously impact generations to come, says philosopher Roman Krznaric. From a global campaign to grant legal personhood to nature to a groundbreaking lawsuit by a coalition of young activists, Krznaric shares examples of ways we can become good ancestors — or, as he calls them, “Time Rebels” — and join a movement redefining lifespans, pursuing intergenerational justice and practicing deep love for the planet.


The Climate Coaching Alliance

The Climate Coaching Alliance (CCA) was set up in late 2019 to bring together coaches, coaching psychologists, and coaching supervisors, facilitators and other leadership professionals in order to cocreate a space to share resources, explore practice, and hold dialogue. The CCA aims to enable individual practitioners, and the profession of coaching to develop strategies and practices that provide our clients (individuals, leaders and their teams) the right space to step into their necessary leadership role in the face of the climate emergency. It is free to join, and makes resources accessible to practitioners to encourage discussion, engagement and confidence and to be an enabling, learning space.
