Continuing Coach Education

Having optimal, depleted or inappropriate high energy at work will impact an individual’s performance, self-awareness, ability to lead and inspire and their relationships with others, sometimes with a considerable ripple effect on the atmosphere in their team or wider organisation. It can also affect their ability to engage with coaching.

In this webinar Viv Chitty will present her pioneering work on conceptualising human energy for use in the coaching and other fields, argue that it is important to address a client’s energy in coaching and outline HOW this can be done.

Viv’s input will be based on the years of research she has conducted on this topic (including a thorough review of peer-reviewed research), including interviews with experienced executive coaches, which led to her writing the book Coaching for Optimal Energy: A guide for executive coaches. The book explores the concept of energy, how it manifests in sessions and in the workplace, influences on energy, the role of the coach and how this can be addressed by practitioners.


Based on Viv’s research and book, the session will cover:

  • Original thinking about the concept of human energy
  • Input on how energy manifests in clients in sessions and in the workplace
  • Why it is important for executive coaches to work with client energy
  • Give an overview of how this can be addressed with clients.
