February Chapter Meeting
Lost at sea? - Surviving the waves of the pandemic.
I’m inspired to speak about coaching in these uncertain times which can leave us feeling lost as if we have been set adrift on an ocean of uncertainty. The fourth wave of covid we are currently facing has challenged us locally, nationally, and globally, and with it, we are witnessing varying levels of trauma. We are witnessing the world in a way that we have never experienced before. This wave has offered us coaches an opportunity to contribute larger than ever before and learn more about working within a trauma informed lens. There is a choice of what we do with the latest information we are gathering. How do we continue to coach in service of our clients while they feel capsized under strain? Where do we find the resilience to be adaptive to uncertainty? What will we need to hold our clients capable? We can utilize our knowledge to help heal this wave and prepare for any more that may present themselves in these unprecedented times. Let us explore the tools that we currently have and look at what else may be needed to assist in this current pandemic as we coach clients to clarity and strength in unsettling times.
