During the 20th ECCC Co-Active Community Day in London on the 8th Nov 2013  (in it’s 10th year) the Our People’s Coach Founding Director Shivani Mair was invited to deliver a fun, interactive and unique coach training session, inspired by the successes of the coaching flash mob initiative Our Peoples’ Coach™, in which coaches create powerful human interactions through speed coaching sessions with random people, in public spaces.

Over 20 certified and coaches in training from around Europe participated in the A Lot Can Happen in A Flash workshop which was a 1.5 hour workshop and series of speed-coaching rounds, which was co-facilitated by Our People’s Coach Co-Director Steve Colson.

  1. Turn the volume up and give some bass to the key co-active skills that are needed for effective speed-coaching, such as intuition, self management, level 2,3 listening, and powerful Q’s.
  2. Discover assumptions and challenge that they had, that have got in their way and stopped them from not only creating long lasting coaching but also in building their coaching business.
  3. Dance barefoot and on hot coals within their coaching discomfort zones (metaphorically speaking, of course).
