Shadow Coaching® In an Increasingly Complex World

Are you giving your clients what they need or what they think they can get? In an increasingly complex world, many of the current practices of leadership do not equip people to deal with neither their biggest risks or their deepest aspirations. Leaders currently have to deal with the intensification of systemic complexity from economic and political realities. They need to be able to respond adaptively to the depth, scope and pace of change that, combined with this complexity, creates unprecedented challenging conditions.

People cannot be told what they need to know in the complexity of practice. They must learn to see for themselves. Coaches can help them to see on their own behalf and in their own way what they most need to see. Coaches can work with the client in the context of their environments so they work with the experience of the learning as much as the learning itself.
