Scheduling across timezones?
Scheduling across timezones is part and parcel of most coaches’ participation in the ReciproCoach community. Most coaches handle it well using our preferred time converter
, but even the best of us can get caught out when daylight savings time begins and ends in different parts of the world.
On our new international scheduling resource page
, we have provided three options for accurately scheduling appointments across timezones including two website links, as well as video tutorials for using the timezone features of iCal or Google Calendar.
If you find these resources useful, we encourage you to subscribe to the ReciproCoach youtube channel
. In addition to the professional development videos we provide, we will continue to share tutorials that will help coaches make the most of the newest technology to manage their businesses better.
Could your clients benefit from more playful coaching?
When searching the ReciproCoach English community, only 80 out of 1080 coaches describe their coaching style as fun/playful. In contrast, double the number of coaches describe themselves as results/performance oriented and more than four times the number describe their style as awareness building. Yet recent research suggests that using play and playfulness in coaching can not only enhance coaching outcomes, but that it also heightens the wellbeing of our clients.
This issue of Coaching Research in Practice reviews this recent research and highlights the evidence-based links between play, playfulness and coaching. Finally, it makes some recommendations for incorporating play and playfulness into coaching sessions.
