The benefits of coaching in nature (eco-coaching) - what the research says

Sharing the research, including my own, into the benefits of eco-coaching, taking coaching conversations outdoors into nature.

Speaker: Alexandra Burn

Alexandra Burn is an independent coach, with a special interest in outdoor coaching - eco-coaching. Her focus when working in-house in Global Organisations, such as Samsung and Siemens, was Talent Management and Leadership Development. Alex’s passion for coaching and nature led to her recent research into the impact of outdoor coaching on coaching outcomes as part of an MSc in Coaching and Behavioural Change from Henley Business School. She has co-written a chapter in “The Coaches Handbook” on this research and practical aspects of eco-coaching, and co-hosts The Coaching Outdoors Podcast. She lives in the Highlands of Scotland.
