what it’s about: In their transformative book, “Climate Change Coaching – The Power of Connection to Create Climate Action” (Open University Press, 2022) Charly Cox and Sarah Flynn tackle the psychological dimension of change, offering practical, easy-to-grasp climate coaching skills that build connection, shift mindsets and motivate people to take climate action. This book will help your audience to have more influence and impact with every climate conversation. Plus real life stories from 40 practitioners who have galvanized climate action using coaching skills, including a forward by Kimberly Nicholas “Under the Sky We Make”.

Charly and Sarah speak about:

  • The psychological dimension of climate change
  • How to shift an organisation’s culture to achieve your net zero targets
  • How to move resistant people from “I can’t and we won’t” to belief and possibility, and finding their stake
  • The tools to shift people into climate action mindsets
  • How to tackle the overwhelm of systemic, existential challenges
  • Why disempowerment is a collective, not an individual challenge
  • How to make use of dissent and reduce polarisation
  • How to coach yourself, including how through grief, anger and burnout
  • Why coaches are uniquely placed to support and enable climate action
