Coaching and climate change

Climate change is increasingly a focus of attention and concern in everyday conversation, in the news and on social media, in business and policy decision-making, and in coaching, mentoring and supervision relationships. That's why we're making these coaching and climate change resources freely available. Their purpose is to enable us to integrate climate change issues into our own practice, and to inform discussion and promote debate among coaches, mentors and supervisors.
