In this thought-provoking episode of Coaching Uncaged Animas Centre Director Robert Stephenson is joined by executive coach, gestalt trained psychotherapist, author and Ashridge faculty member Simon Cavicchia as they explore the self work we might need to do to better facilitate dialogue around the more difficult or triggering topics of conversation.
Robert and Simon look specifically at the topic of diversity and inclusion as they delve into what makes particular dialogue difficult. They touch on the idea of defence and attack stances that can come into play when dealing with difficult conversations, the importance of recognising our own triggers and biases, as well as exploring how as coaches, we might use our knowledge of human relationships, human beings and psychological safety as coaches in service of creating conditions for dialogue.
Simon also highlights the work that might be done to create leaders that are better equipped to have these conversations, offers his take on the role of supervision in this area, touches on the role of shame, and speaks on the notion of who you are as a person is who you are as a practitioner as he encourages you to “go inside as much as one might look outside”.
