Tweetchat No 4: The inner game of the coach

by Rossana Espinoza 0

The inner game in coaching


Coaching Tweetchat is back on Friday 29 September from 12 to 1 pm. The organising committee is delighted to announce that three Coaching Tweetchats have been scheduled  for the 2017/18 year! Coaching Tweetchats will be taking place on the last Friday of the month in September, October and November.  We hope you can join us!


Every game is composed of two parts, an outer game and an inner game. The outer game is played against an external opponent to overcome external obstacles, and to reach an external goal…The inner game… is the game that takes place in the mind of the player…and it is played to overcome all habits of mind which inhibit excellence in performance.  – W. Timothy Gallwey

In our next #coachingHE #SDFcoaching Tweetchat, we will explore how your own inner game may influence your coaching practice; discuss techniques for recognising and managing our internal interferences (e.g. self-doubt, perfectionism, lapses of concentration, and other mental distractions); and share stories of helping your clients to see when their inner game may be in play.


Target audience:

Participants with all levels of knowledge, experience and/or qualifications in coaching are welcomed to join. You only need:
