All sessions can be booked individually by GCA members, attendees of the International Gay Coaches Conference and other gay men coaches new to our community. The conference is available to book free of charge as a fundraiser for the host of our annual in person conference, Easton Mountain.

Ontological Coaching: Taking Your Coaching to a Deeper Level

with David Manning

Is there another way to coach that goes deeper than performance coaching? Learn about the approach of ontological coaching.

Ontological Coaching is an extraordinarily powerful methodology for effecting change for individuals, teams and organizations. It is highly effective because it is based on a new deeply grounded and practical understanding of language, moods and conversations for behavioral and cultural transformation.

The elegant simplicity and ready applicability of the ontological approach to coaching enables you to help your clients and colleagues in a way that is profound, respectful and generates immediate and long-lasting change.
