Coaching Tools Boot Camp

The East Midlands Coaching Network is offering a half day workshop for the development of coaches in the East Midlands. This workshop will focus on tools used within coaching sessions. We all have our favourite things and coaches are no different, this CPD session will enable coaches to share with one another their favourite coaching tools. Facilitated by experienced executive coach Cathy Lasher the workshop will help to develop coaches knowledge and skills when using coaching tools, enabling coaches to have access to a variety of different tools and understand when they are most effective.

What if you had never tried chocolate cake?

Trying new tools in coaching can be an exposing experience when you are working with a client. This workshop looks to provide the safe environment and positive feedback to fully enable the development of coaches. Bring your favourite tool, or bring the tool you have always wanted to try and we will provide you with the safe environment for you to experience how the tool works and the benefits that it can bring to your clients.


This CPD session is designed around the concept of the coaching community sharing and supporting its own development. It will be a fluid morning and we expect to see a whole range of tools being shared.

We will be doing some practice using these tools.  So please also bring along a small issue that you would benefit from having a bit of coaching on yourself, or a coaching topic from one of your coachees.

The Take Away

At the end of the workshop the tools shared will be collated and distributed to all those who have taken part, as well as be added to the East Midlands Coaching Network Resource Bank.

We would ask that coaches bring with them their favourite tool for sharing, however if you don’t have a tool for sharing Cathy will be bringing a collection of her own.

The Facilitator

The session will be led by Cathy Lasher
