Step into a new, deeper relationship with yourself, your clients and the world
You don’t need to be a sustainability expert to coach on climate.
You need to be a great coach.
We believe that the climate crisis is just as much a human behavioural problem as it is a scientific or technological one. This is good news because it means that we can all do something about it, and as coaches it is particularly meaningful, because behaviour change is at the heart of what we do.
It’s easy to feel defeated when we look around and see the scale of the problem and the lack of action from governments, companies, even friends and family. Overwhelm and a sense of scarcity are normal reactions to having so much to do in so little time. The problem is, they drastically limit our ability to respond creatively and effectively.
There is an important role for coaches here to support clients to overcome self-doubt and paralysis and be creative and resilient in the face of complexity. We can harness our skills to help them see possibility where previously they felt powerless, and to reimagine and build a better future.
Join our upcoming training programme and get on the path to becoming a climate change coach.
CLIMATE CHANGE COACHING TRAINING PROGRAMME
Our coaching training programme curriculum was developed by pioneering climate change coaches and authors Charly Cox and Sarah Flynn and will introduce you to the fundamental topics that arise when coaching on climate change, offering practical skills and tools to navigate this uncertain terrain. You’ll also get the opportunity to be coached on all these topics yourself, before you begin coaching others on them.
This course will help you to develop the skills to coach clients to :
- more deeply consider what the crisis means to them personally
- feel understood when they feel isolated and to navigate and process the emotional landscape experienced when confronted with the realities of the climate crisis, such as anger or grief
- unpack their self-doubt and reconnect to a sense of agency
- connect to purpose or their motivation around the climate crisis
- create accountability for action
- manage their well-being so they can avoid burnout and stay on the pitch for the long term

climate change coaches’ program provided me with helpful approaches for addressing the deep emotions that often get in the way of us taking personal and collective action around climate change. It also filled me with hope and inspiration to meet so many other coaches from around the globe, all working towards one cause, each in our own way. Lastly, it provided business ideas and models for how to sustainably coach for a sustainable world.
Clean Careers Coach
The climate change coaches circle is a truly enlightening course delivered with warmth and expertise. I’d highly recommend it for any coaches who want to deepen their learning on how to help people faced with the climate emergency and other systemic issues (such as the pandemic). You get to grow with an international network of like-minded coaches who are all working across a diverse range of specialisms.
The coaching circle was a warm and safe way for me to grow professionally as well as personally into the role as climate change coach. Charly and Megan are both skilled and humble coaches and teachers, and every session they shared generously from their own experiences and techniques. The teachers and the participants interacted in a dynamic way, making resource and thought exchange possible, making good use of the Zoom environment. I highly recommend joining the circle of you’re longing to use your coaching skills to make a difference for the planet.
This course has been invaluable and had a significant impact on helping to move my thinking forward on how to integrate climate change into my coaching offer. I’m excited to see where this new found learning, knowledge and drive – to help people working on climate change issues to carve out more guilt-free time for self-care – will take me.
Climate Coaching Training Programme by the Climate Change Coaches has been one of the most stimulating, expansive and rewarding trainings that I have done as a coach to date. The team brought depth and sensitivity to the course, and were supported by well considered and detailed material. Having a community that is both like-minded and yet different enough to be challenging has long been something I’ve missed as a coach, and CCC brought together one of the most interesting groups that I’ve been part of.
Coaching in an era of climate change means many of our clients are experiencing uncertainty, overwhelm, a sense of scarcity and emotions from frustration to anger and grief. This is a beautifully structured and well resourced course that builds on core coaching competencies and explores how to adapt, innovate and extend those skills to meet our clients’ needs even better. Its small group, interactive nature, with a great balance of input, paired/trio coaching practice and between session learning are a great foundation for anyone wanting to explore becoming a climate change coach.
