The 360 Within© – Applying the Arts to your Coaching Practice – with Guest Host Steven Morris & Guests Owen Ó Súilleabháin & John Schuster

Be it coaching an executive, coaching a manager, or coaching a team, there’s no mistaking that coaching is an essential path to human and leadership growth. But not all coaching is equal, and not all coaches are alike. Whether someone is being coached for development or for performance, the need for good and diverse styles of coaching is more vital than ever.

The discipline of coaching revels in its complexity. It resides at the confluence of many streams of enquiry—mindfulness, psychology, leadership theory, peak performance research, to name a few.

One field of human endeavor largely ignored in the teaching of coaching is that of the Arts and the Humanities. Owen Ó Súilleabháin is an artist who works in the world of organizational leadership and has recently teamed up with a great elder of the coaching community John Schuster to provide a virtual sandbox for coaches to come and play – an experience designed to foster, encourage and share – coaches with coaches – how the Arts have influenced them as people and professionals – how they use the arts to renew themselves and to enrich the client experience.
