Our World in These Times

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.

CCA Events in September include:

https://www.climatecoachingalliance.org/event/training-or-workshop-with-the-earth-in-mind-a-systemic-framework-to-facilitate-coaching-leadership-community-conversations-on-the-climate-environment/

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, take it away to test it out, if desired, with their peers, supervisees or clients and if desired, join our User Experience Group.

The new IPCC climate report is hugely important — and here are 6 main takeaways

Sadly, there is hardly any good news in the 3,900 pages of text released today — but there is still time to avert the worst damage if humanity chooses to. Here’s an explainer to the new report and what it means for our future, with six key takeaways…
