Ian Day, co-author of “Challenging Coaching” describes the greatest challenge he has had to face. Revealing the importance of lampposts!
In March 2017, Ian Day had a cardiac arrest and despite CPU, his heart stopped for 20 minutes. He was in a coma for 17 days and also suffered brain damage due to oxygen starvation. As he slowly recovered he had to learn to walk, talk, eat and recognise his family all over again. Ian has now fully recovered and in this session he will share his story exploring resilience and the importance of optimism. Ian’s recovery is a living example of neuroplasticity, demonstrating the incredible abilities of the brain. Discussion and activities will enable coaches to reflect on the impact of Ian’s story on our coaching practice.
Ian Day is an executive coach and leadership development professional. He presented Challenging Coaching to Coaching Connections in 2015. This new session promises us an inspirational start to 2019 drawing on resilience, optimism, and the hero’s journey and will explain the importance of lampposts! Ian will reflect on his personal journey and experience of “What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger!”
