What extraordinary times we’re living through.

The complexity of the challenges we’re facing is unprecedented. We lurch from crisis to crisis, while our trust in the old systems continues to fall. Conversation has never been more fractured or polarised. The future is deeply uncertain.

And yet, amidst all the rising tension there are signals that something new is emerging. Beneath the noise of panic and reactivity there is an invitation to a radical new possibility.

We are living in a moment charged with evolutionary potential.

Extraordinary times contain the seeds for extraordinary new emergence. Can we face this moment with wisdom and compassion, and evolve beyond our current ways into the leadership that wants to come through us?

As coaches we have a critical role to play in helping the emergence of these new forms of leadership. Doing so means we must reimagine who we are and how we serve.

This is why we created the Coaching Summit in 2020. To come together as a community and explore the essential questions…

  • How can we see our current crises, not simply as problems to be legislated for, but rather as a potential that’s inviting us into new forms of leadership?
  • Who is the person—grounded in the ancient wisdom of the past, and equipped with cutting-edge growth technologies—who can step into the fold and help lead us through these times of uncertainty?
  • How can we as coaches and change professionals, help our clients to embody the new forms of leadership needed to navigate this deep complexity?

To explore these pressing questions, we gathered a group of world-class experts in their respective fields, who we believe each hold an important piece of this puzzle.

During the two weeks of the summit, we created a variety of teaching sessions, workshops, panel discussions, and group practices, that helped and continue to help us all experience a process of collective sense-making and deep learning.

About the Summit

It was over coffee in an Amsterdam cafe that we (Joel and Laurens, founders of Coaches Rising) first conceived of a company that would empower the world’s coaches.

11 years, 25+ training programs, and thousands of students later, we’re proud at the difference we’ve made to so many coaches as we all face the growing challenges of leadership and consciousness.

Coaches Rising is founded on the belief that there are few more powerful paths to coaching mastery, that being in close relationship with the world’s best transformation practitioners.

But this summit is also more than teaching, it’s a collective enquiry into the pressing leadership questions of our time.

It’s for you if…

  • You’re an experienced coach who wants to deepen their craft and learn from the best in the world.
  • You’re a new coach, just starting out on the path and want some inspiration and tools.
  • You work with leadership teams or companies, helping them harness their collective talent in an effective team environments.

If this is you, sign up!
