My very dear friends
This year on new year's day, Geanina and I were on ski slopes in the South French Alps , reasonably close to our other home in Carry le Rouet. On January fourth, however, I was already back in the grind, leading a workshop on how to coach risk management, followed by three days work with half of the top 50 of a service organization. So we were rapidly back into active life. I am enchanted by the perspective that for me, 2010 will be a European year. Like last year, we will mostly live between Paris and Bucharest and often travel to Brussels and Madrid. A few trips to Berlin and to Milan are already planned for the spring, and work in other more distant and exotic destinations may be opening up. Below is more precise information about our coming trip to Romania, and then about what's coming for us in Europe:
February 13, we will be in Bucharest for almost a month. Some work is planned with a few corporate clients and teams. With the Metasysteme Coaching Academy, you can also satisfy your personal hunger for useful open trainings in either (or both) of two events:
- February 15 and 16, I am leading a 2-day workshop on the Breakthrough Process. This workshop trains managers and coaches to accompany major personal, professional and organizational shifts in perspectives to achieve breakthrough results. This approach gives managers and coaches the means to really provoke huge returns on investment.
- February 22 and 23 begins the 8th Romanian Coaching Fundamentals cycle, one of the top coach training programs in Europe. Beyond acquiring coaching tools, this program is truly designed to grow managers and coach candidates into becoming excellent professionals.
I will also be delivering two Coaching Fundamentals workshops in Berlin this spring, March 25-26 and April 12-13. These are the same ACSTH ICF-validated Metasysteme systemic coach training workshops as the ones I deliver in in France and Bucharest and soon watch for a similar offer in Madrid.
You may not want to miss the ICF Italia annual conference March 16 & 17 in Milan. I am honored to have been asked to deliver a keynote speech there, in keeping with their challenging theme, "The Avant Garde of Coaching". The presentation will be delivered within a resolutely systemic perspective, and come prepared to participate. Also remember that Milan is the shopping capital of the world.

I have a new French book project for which I am waiting approval, and a Romanian translation of another book is (still) in the works. The crisis has slowed the Bucharest process down last year. In English, I have been writing a number of new texts that are posted on the website, including one that is still getting a lot of attention on the particularities of true-blue coaching presence and how it is foundational to all other coach lools and techniques: https://www.metasysteme.eu/english/toolboxes-systemic-coaching-posture-and-process/ This text is getting much attention.
