  • Welcome to the matching & coaching session of the conference. This session is about building new relationships, it’s about networking inside our Leading change network. And its about the value of peer coaching.Something we as humans are naturally good at!!
  • During this session, I will be explaining briefly why we are doing it and how the process will go about, then each one of you will be invited to a breakout room with your partner to have your first 1:1 for about 16 minutes. The purpose of this one on one is to learn each others stories, explore each others interests, and see if you might find ways you could support one another in your work, even if its only by asking each other good questions, which is what good coaches do This first 1:1 is for you to explore each other and decide how you want to take this forward. This could become an important coaching relation for you through your work.
  • The matching was done based on applications filled in registration. Taking into consideration the common interests as well as diversity. I have 197 people registered for the conference from …63 countries
  • One of the things you can do in a relationship building is coaching, which is asking really good questions. So we thought of sharing with you some really good questions to start your conversation of building this relationship with.
  • A good relation is based on values platform. That’s why it’s essential for us to know each other stories. Start your conversation with sharing your stories and then exploring each others main challenge and how you see support for each other going forward. Make sure that you switch roles in exploring so that the 18 minutes finish while you both have know each other. You will get a notification in your break out room once 9 minutes are over so that you switch roles. WRITE THE QUESTIONS DOWN BEFORE YOU LEAVE THE ROOM
