In this lively and interactive session, coach, speaker, author and Psychologies Magazine columnist Kim Morgan will bring to life the contents of her and Geoff Watts’ book ‘The Coach’s Casebook – Mastering The Twelve Traits That Trap Us’ (Inspect & Adapt, £16.99). Traits such as perfectionism, impostor syndrome, people-pleasing, fierce independence and procrastination come up time and again in coaching relationships, and while they have often been an instrumental part of people’s success, when overdone, they end up holding them back. This workshop explores the idea that we have a greater range of behaviours available to us than we routinely use. Imagine how it would feel if you could play down ‘procrastination’ at will, summon ‘assertiveness’ whenever you needed it, or let go of ‘perfectionism’.
You will learn how to:
Experiment with different behaviour styles in a fun way
Identify your overdone and underdone traits
Develop the confidence to use a wider range of behaviours
Understand the real impact of overdone traits, such as people-pleasing, perfectionism and impostor syndrome
