About our July issue
As workplaces reopen this summer in response to the lifting of COVID restrictions, our July issue examines how stay-at-home mothers experience the return to work and discusses the ways in which coaches can help women prepare themselves, physically, mentally and emotionally, to make the ‘transformative leap’ back into the workplace.
Staying in the workplace, we also look at how executive coaches can challenge the taboo of exploring the ‘big picture’ issues of meaning, purpose and spirituality with their clients by adopting a transpersonal approach in their work in organisations.
Alongside a report on how coaching is helping to address child poverty in rural Scotland, an interview with a practitioner who specialises in working with mothers and daughters, and a courageous and searingly honest case study from a group supervisor, I hope this issue gives you plenty of food for thought as you embark on your summer break.
