“Reflective thinking turns experience into insight.” – John C. Maxwell.
Having a rich reflective practice is an essential tool for all coaches – from those in training to Master Practitioners. The power of reflection extends far beyond its professional application to coaching; providing expanded access to awareness, insight into self-understanding and a measure for growth.
In this session we will explore multiple facets of this practice, from intention to insight, inquiry to evaluation.
Please have a pen and journal available.
Session contact details:
Tracy Brown is an EMCC Global individually accredited coach (EIA) at Senior Practitioner level, and an Associate Trainer with Coacharya. She has completed a 200-hour meditation teacher training with the Lab of Meditation and is currently working on her Somatic Experiencing training which is a body-oriented therapeutic model that helps heal trauma and other stress disorders.
Through emotional exploration and reflection, Tracy has done a lot of self-directed work to process her grief and feelings of shame and guilt around her husband’s death, feelings that were buried but which kept her stuck for many years.
As a young single mother without the educational background of her colleagues, Tracy fought hard to climb the career ladder – often prioritizing work demands ahead of family life or self-care. Over the years she undertook several career pivots, and ultimately co-founded a business in a foreign country.
Each trajectory was challenging, successful, and initially fulfilling, but she kept feeling like she wanted something more. That ‘something more’ was work-life balance, true connection, and purpose. The path to finding this began with regular mediation and yoga. With a new sense of clarity, Tracy reflected on something she had been passionate about from a former career – for over a decade, she had represented a roster of creative professionals. Coaching them to develop their careers was her favourite part of that role. Deciding to pursue formal coach training, Tracy joined a 125-hour ACTP program with Coacharya led by Ram Ramanathan, and from the first class knew she had discovered her calling.
Tracy splits her time between Vancouver and Toronto Canada and San Juan del Sur Nicaragua, and when she isn’t coaching or teaching remotely she’s spending time with family and friends or enjoying beach life with her dog Charlie.
