This course was far more than I could have hoped. I was able to make myself vulnerable and begin to work towards a fuller, enriched understanding of myself. I chose this workshop to develop my skills in coaching in the workplace… it not only delivered on this but also enabled a deeper awareness of how I show up in the world. Anyone in the People, Coaching, Development space can benefit from this workshop and this is also for you if you want to get to know yourself more deeply and explore any internal self talk or issues that you want to begin letting go of. PS. “The course was so significant in my journey and enabled me to make a more positive shift in my mind, body and emotion – which I believe helped me in getting a job soon after attending.”
A very profound yet practical three days spent understanding what it means to be human and how through the awareness of language, mood and our bodies we can live a more fulfilled and meaningful life. The content works at a deep level with the self as well as providing pragmatic processes to apply in organisations in contexts such as leadership, OD and coaching – but will in fact empower one in all facets of business and life. Facilitators Karen White and Erma Steyn created just the right space and energy for deep learning to happen. Karen has a unique gift with people on so many levels and is an authentic, warm human being while Erma’s insightful line of questioning also invited participants into awareness and shift.
The 3 day course was extremely insightful and interesting, and I learnt a huge amount in this short time about myself and how I can be of service to others. I look forward to learning so much more. Thank you Karen….it was an honour meeting you and spending these three days under your care and guidance.
The course is well integrated, grounded and filled with practical learning and application. Surely one of the best coaching interventions I attended.
I am excited to notice how deep the shifts are in the way I observe and listen! It already has a great impact on the way I show up and relate to the people I love and work with.
The 3-day course is stimulating, powerful and fun. It shines a light on the unconscious fundamentals of our daily human experience and offers a practical toolkit for working with these elements to connect better with ourselves and others. Its deep roots give it broad application, equally valuable for improving personal relationships, becoming a stronger leader in the workplace or exploring professional coaching as a possible career move.
An enriching and life changing experience. Giving up 3 days of your time to enhance the quality of your relationship with yourself and others is time well spent. This workshop exceeded my expectations by miles. The multidimensional approach comes together expertly. If you want to make internal and external shifts in the interests of your own well-being and those around you, this is for you.
Learning to become a new observer has opened up new and unimagined ways for me to live my life more happily, effectively and meaningfully. As a coach I believe that I now offer my clients a powerful learning experience which enables them to harness their inner resources, life and work experience – their way of being – to identify and make shifts they desire in order to enhance their quality of life.
The programme has deepened my practice as a coach, significantly contributing to my skills, awareness and effectiveness as a mediator and facilitator. At a personal level, it has given me much greater insight into my own patterns of or, and more importantly, choices I can make that support greater well-being and effectiveness through how I am in my language, emotions, and body.
I had been coaching for 15 years, and yet the value I gained from the 18 month program was profound and transformational. I learned a great deal about my own way of being. Adding ontological elements to my coaching methodology has deepened my ability to serve my clients and has led to transformational changes in their lives, and mine.
The Ontological Coaching programme was a deeply personal experience for me, far beyond just a professional accreditation. It helped me notice the stories I have been living in and gave me practical ways to make changes in my life. It also supported me in shaping my professional offer to the world as a coach, consultant and facilitator.
