The first few months of 2017 have kept the RD1st team busy! We ran our first public course in Scotland at CCA Glasgow in March and the National Theatre in London also kindly hosted our popular one-day coaching course. In February and March Tate invited Emma and Claire to deliver two days’ training in coaching and Action Learning facilitation for over twenty members of the Plus Tate network. March also saw RD1st complete a year-long training programme for over 150 managers at Royal Opera House, working closely with RD1st alumni Greg Jauncey, HR and Training Manager at ROH.
In early April fifteen newly accredited RD1st coaches joined our ranks – welcome to RD24! And Deb has recently returned from Tripoli in Lebanon after delivering part one of the main course with RD1st International trainer Dina Abu Hamdan.
This week sees the start of our first course specifically for artists, in partnership with and resourced by A-N: the artists information company, following a successful pilot programme last year.
Since we expanded the RD1st team two years ago we’ve been keen to develop some new opportunities for alumni. A number of new short courses are listed below. Over early Summer we’ll be putting the finishing touches to a new advanced course for later in 2017/18 – watch this space!
In our future newsletters we hope to share with you stories about ways in which people are using Relational Dynamics coaching skills and approaches. Given our current focus on artists, we wanted to share an interview with Joshua Sofaer about the ways in which he uses coaching as part of his creative and professional practice.
We hope you will find the opportunities and news below interesting. If you have anything you’d like us to consider for a future newsletter – an article, a blog post, an opportunity, a rant even – please get in touch.
Wishing you all a lovely summer
Deb, Isabel, Emma and Claire
