Exploring Identity Consciousness in Coaching 

With Taslim Tharani.

30 June, 2.30pm – 5.30pm. Zoom.


“Identity-conscious practice is a process of realising that who you are informs and impacts how you act, how you interact with others, and how you see the world around you” (Talusan, 2022)

Identity-conscious practice is essential for inclusive coaching.

In this interactive workshop you will: 

  • Develop identity consciousness by naming and exploring our own identities 
  • Explore how our own identities may influence the way we see and navigate the world and therefore how they might show up, consciously or unconsciously in the coaching space 
  • Become more aware of our own biases, assumptions, privileges and positionality and explore how this might show up in our coaching practice 
  • Identify how we can use this awareness to move towards more inclusive coaching practice and create spaces where intersectional identities can be brought into the coaching space 

This workshop draws on contextual behavioural science which underpins Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, an approach to behavioural change which enables us to develop greater flexibility and perspective taking, as well as a greater capacity to be with difficult thoughts, feelings, and experiences which tend to arise when engaging in equity work.

Our hope is that this workshop will offer a space where the discomfort can be processed in a safe and positive way so that we can move towards greater understanding, belonging, inclusion and equity in our coaching practice.
