when 10 July 2023 - 10 July 2023

fee EUR 550

“How does it feel to be ignored by your boss?” To be an effective coach, one is taught to have the client explore their feelings. While many U.S. American clients may be comfortable answering this question, a Norwegian client may share feedback that they are not comfortable talking about their feelings so early in the coaching process.

Culture matters in coaching. Culturally adaptive coaching matters in building trust, connecting with your clients, and providing space for them to have more productive coaching sessions and outcomes.
