We are facing a novel world of changing workspace mobility, with those we coach moving between virtual, rural, urban and mobile spaces. No-one knows what the future of work will look like post pandemic, but from start-ups to multinationals, a sizeable part of the workforce will continue working flexibly. We believe the context of a coaching conversation matters and this shift is already being seen in the issues coaching clients bring to sessions and how and where coaches work.
Wise Goose is committed to doing what we can to prepare you for coaching in these new worlds. With this in mind, we have  designed a ‘hybrid’ structure for our Advanced Programme with the course being delivered in London, Devon and Online. This non-residential format will broaden your networks, and help you become more aware and fluent in articulating the differences, qualities and opportunities of coaching in different places.
Every year we aim to switch the London and Devon topics to give those who cannot travel the opportunity to make up any missed courses in the location of their choice. If you have any questions about this new format, please feel free to contact us.
