Andrew SheridanAndrew SheridanGetting the most out of relationships at work: blending the human being with the human doing / Venez découvrir les concepts qui changent la manière de travailler des organisations et leurs impacts sur les personnes qui y travaillent

The workshop will be delivered in Fr-Anglais - a blend of English and French for those who are limited with one or the other.

Getting the most out of relationships at work: blending the human being with the human doing.

Come and explore the concepts that are changing the way organisations work - and how they impact those working within them.

All organisations have a purpose: to create, serve, sell, grow ... something. What often gets left behind, or is addressed as an after-thought, is how to make the most of the key stakeholders - the people - that work behind the scenes to achieve that purpose.

Management theory has evolved greatly in recent times - and there's further to go for many organisations in blending current theory with actual practice. In this workshop, Andrew Sheridan (CPCC, PCC) will explore the themes and practices that help leaders bring the two elements of 'being' and 'doing' together, for the greater good of both the organisation and the people that work within them.

Maximiser les relations au travail, combiner les éléments de l'être humain, l'être et le faire.

Chaque organisation a une mission, celle de créer, de servir, de vendre, de grandir...
Ce qui est souvent oublié ou considéré en dernier lieu, est le capital humain, les principaux acteurs qui permettent à l'organisation d'atteindre ses buts.

La théorie de gestion a beaucoup évolué - et il y a encore du chemin pour certaines organisations afin acquérir le juste équilibre entre ces deux pôles. Dans ce workshop, Andrew Sheridan (CPCC, PCC) va explorer les thèmes et les pratiques qui aident les leaders à rapprocher les deux éléments qui sont l''être' et le 'faire', pour le bien de l'entreprise ainsi que les personnes qui y travaillent.

L'événement sera délivré en Fr-Anglais - un mélange des deux langues pour ceux qui ont du mal avec l'un ou l'autre.

The workshop is led by Andrew Sheridan CPCC / PCC. A recovering investment banker, Andrew chose to leave the corporate world in 2007, embarking on a journey that included in-depth study and research in the fields of social science, psychology, leadership and management theory. Eventually Andrew found his place back in that field—but this time, from the outside—with a mission to change the way organisations think about, and respond to, the needs of their most precious asset: the people. Today, he is a certified coach holding the CPCC and PCC credentials, and is current President of the ICF Chapter in Luxembourg, and senior faculty for the Coaches Training Institute. In 2011, he joined forces with other self-confessed agents-of-change in Luxembourg, and is a founder of ONE Partners, a company dedicated to facilitating conversations about change, and anchored in the belief that people deserve better.


ClaudiaMonday 10 February - Leadership Evolution in Action – Embracing Your Shadow

As very young children, we predictably react to the adult world around us by unconsciously selecting one of three "coping strategies". These strategies have us either moving towards each other, away from each other, or against each other. While each strategy is unique, they do have two things in common. First, outside forces define our self-worth and safety and second, each strategy rejects the other by establishing a binary or polarized view of the world.

If we want to grow as leaders, we not only need to learn more about our own reactive strategy and patterns (and their consequences), but also learn how to embrace and own the other side, the shadow strategy – and ultimately become able to disassociate ourselves from our reactive patterns all together so that we can start to lead with a stance of actively "moving towards something" rather than "avoiding something".

This workshop is designed for leaders, coaches – and everyone interested in personal growth, be it for themselves or in a role where they support the development process of others.

Participants will identify their own predominant reactive strategy, experience how they have marginalised behaviours that they therefore don't consider part of this reactive "identity" – and they will start to slowly move towards this "shadow side" and begin to see the benefits for themselves as leaders (of their lifes and at work).

Participants will also get to know a leadership development model & tool which, based on the work of R. Kegan and L. Lahey on the Stages of Adult development, clearly highlights and supports leadership evolution from reactive to creative leadership.

This workshop is led by Claudia Presber, ACC and Certified Professional of Co-Active Coaching (CPCC). Claudia has accumulated a wealth of experience in international HR leadership roles prior to becoming an independent coach in 2011. She is a trainer for the Coaches Training Institute (CTI, the world's largest coach training organisation) and she coaches and consults HR departments, managers and leaders and teams across all industries.


Monday 13 January - Taming Your Limiting Beliefs

Limiting beliefs, which are also referred to as saboteurs and gremlins in coaching work, can stand in the way of you and your coaching clients reaching your goals and living life to the full. Taming your limiting beliefs starts with awareness of the inner detrimental voice and it´s messages. Being aware and catching the dissonant voice of the gremlin when working with a coaching client, can help the coach bring the client back to resonance with values and goals. Taming your limiting beliefs is led by a ACC and CPCC accredited coach, Halldóra Guðmarsdóttir. Please join this interactive and fun workshop on some basics for taming your limiting beliefs.

White horse in fieldSeptember 16, 2013 – Animal Assisted Coaching

What horses can teach us about non-judgmental feedback, awareness to body language and ultimately about leadership.

This event will provide you with the opportunity to learn about experiential learning with horses and observe a piece of its practice. There is opportunity for some participants to experience this. Sessions with horses provide an 'in the moment ' learning experience, lifting awareness very spontaneously to a level that people sometimes find hard to achieve in a more "traditional" setting.
Horses are not invested in the result or outcome of any situation – they do not manipulate or judge.
Horses are not impressed by status or ego.
Horses sense, and respond to a person's intentions, emotions and thoughts that are conveyed subconsciously through body language, thus they demand congruency from us.
