Possibilities Newsletter March 2021

Dear Friend,

I hope February went well for you. With Chinese New Year, Valentine's Day and Shrove Tuesday in the space of a week, in a normal year I'd roll my eyes like my Teenager at all the 'tent pole' marketing messages arriving in my inbox, but at this time, marking occasions and celebrating whenever and whatever we can feels happy International Women's Month, hope you are regenerated by Spring Equinox and take cheer that International Waffle Day is March 25th...

'Coaching' has become a very broad church since I started 15 years ago and it can be hard to explain to clients and others what, how and why we do what we do. So I'm starting a new series on the Bamboo Blog exploring what distinguishes developmental and Integral Coaching from other types of coaching. I will also be linking to the work of colleagues around the world. The series is intended as a support to the Bamboo Coaching Community but will hopefully be of use to anyone supporting the development of others, whether as managers, leaders, parents or partners. This month on the Bamboo Blog we are exploring what we really mean by 'freedom'.

Again, if you are interested in being part of the Bamboo Coaching Community pilot programme, especially if you are newer to coaching and still finding your way- or just interested in how you might support yourself and others through learning about coaching please let us know by emailing

The Bamboo Book Club will be starting again in April when we will study the same topics as last year but with added books. So if you missed it last time - or want to go round again in more depth - do join us!

Take care
