The recording from my "Uncertainty Cure" workshop for coaches from the Transformative Coaching Summit at Animas Centre for Coaching is now live.
I really enjoyed this session and I found it to be a gift that keeps on giving - it has started many great conversations about the feeling of uncertainty, our own uncertainty tolerance, and how can we help our clients navigate the choppy waters of "not knowing".
And the "Red Cross" framework for managing uncertainty I shared is one of the most mentioned practical takeaways.
Here is the recording for you to enjoy. And if you'd like to find particular moments, I include handy time stamps below.
3:30 – Why understanding uncertainty and its impact matters for us coaches?
7:10 – How does my clients’ uncertainty tolerance show up in my coaching, supervision and leadership development work?
