Using Ritual and Environment
In Transformative Coaching


This program will explore the significant role of rituals and environment in driving human change and development, specifically within the context of coaching. This program aims to equip coaches with the knowledge and skills to seamlessly integrate rituals and optimize the coaching environment for enhanced client-facing work.

Although coaching is often seen as a modern profession emerging from the humanistic psychology movement of the mid-20th century, the concept of supporting transitions, development, and change has deep roots in the fabric of human society. Rites and rituals are time proven tools for managing and embedding these pivotal moments. Rites of passage (a form of ritual) are defined as ‘events which mark or facilitate an important transitional life stage’, and we’ll explore how the coaching relationship itself can be considered a form of ritual.

The coaching environment and context are critical factors in supporting meaningful change. Behavioral science highlights that the context holds the utmost importance in this regard. Even in the era of virtual coaching, where altering the environment may seem irrelevant or impossible, understanding its impact on thinking, emotions, and decision-making becomes vital. In this program, we will explore the profound influence of our surroundings and provide simple yet creative techniques to integrate and explore this aspect within coaching sessions.

The aim is for the session to be experiential and fun, giving participants a direct personal experience of the learning and tools, as well as offering several practical ideas to implement within their coaching sessions immediately.

Learning Objectives:
An understanding of the role and importance of ritual and environment within the coaching context including some of the research.

How to employ rituals within coaching to support clients through transitional moments and to embed new behaviors.

Participants will earn 1 Core Competency and .5 Resource Development CCEs
