The essential handbook for partnering with nature in coaching conversations

As a species, we’re designed to spend most of our time outdoors. Yet today we live in a highly demanding technology-led society, where the pace of change is un-catchable and we spend much of our day indoors, staring at a screen. Too often the result is that we lose perspective and our wellbeing – as well as our performance – suffers.

The psychological and cognitive benefits of being outdoors are now well understood: time in nature enhances higher-order thinking, restores attention, brings perspective and boosts creativity.

As a coach, you already know that clients respond better when they’re away from the office: imagine the possibilities if we step outdoors!

Discover everything you need to know to transform your coaching impact:

  • The science behind being outdoors
  • Logistics, planning, contracting and safety
  • Collaborating with nature as a co-facilitator
  • The benefits for coach, client and organization, highlighted through case studies
  • Tools and ideas on how to maximize all that nature offers.
