On Tues 20th May 2014, Our People’s Coach Street Team celebrated International Coaching Week 2014 as a collective force, after they successfully completed their eight OPC Flash Mob, (first of six in 2014) in the home of the last Olympic Games 2012 Stratford, London UK.

After the morning briefing, some final training and bonding with their team members (many new to the team and had never met before) the Ride With The Wave Pod and Go With The Flow Pod set off to make a positive impact on the local through free speed coaching sessions, powered by Divine Chocolate.

Our biggest learning from this event is that this initiative is not for every coach, so we’re very grateful that and the right people and masterful coaches continue to join our team and bring something unique to make our work even more powerful each time.

Just a sample of feedback from the 10 minute coaching sessions…
