Outdoor coaching & hike

Sa, 28 August 2021, 10:30 -16:30

Lise Bruynooghe & Matthias Läubli


Join Matthias and Lise from the ICF Zürich squad for a hike & coach up the Wildspitz, a local mountain close to Unterägeri.  In our time together, we will: 

  • explore nature as powerful tool and co-partner in coaching 
  • experience breathing as means to create connection with ourselves 
  • reflect on our journey as coaches (due to covid, severely belated New Year's resolutions included!)

This is a relaxed hike with all abilities, friends, and family welcome. We will take the „Leiter“ and hiking trails, so definitely not suitable for buggies! You will be free to choose whether you want to follow a more structured coaching discovery or simply enjoy the walk and meet new people. The event is open to anyone interested in coaching and wanting to learn more, socialise and network with coaches in a relaxed outdoursy context.  

Learning objectives

  • Harness nature, breath and embodiment in coaching 
  • Play with your own boundaries and ability to stretch out of your comfort zone 
  • Find a metaphor and/or power move for your own practice 
  • Experience hiking & coaching, combine self-reflection with outdoor activity
  • Connect with other coaches in the community
