As a coach, mentor, or client, what do I decide: to grieve or to resist? When I resist, especially unconciously, the outcome might be passivity, over-agitation, or even depression, somatic illnesses or addictions. When I accept the new situation, what do I decide: to stay in the same position as before (status quo), to adapt to the new environment (change type 1), or change the paradigm and my values (change type 2). The same applies in organisations, in teams. All these stages are part of a process of life transitions call the Evolution Loops. It allows us to better know ourselves and/or diagnose what stage our client/mentee is in and to select the adequate mode of coaching or mentoring. WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU? Thanks to the tool, you will identify in which situation the client is in, the team, or the whole organisation. You will immediately apply the tool with a concrete case provided by a client or a company: identify the transition step and determine how to use the tool. You will be able to analyse the possible illusion of change and the needs/resources needed for a deep change – using your own story or based on a real client story or project. WHAT WILL YOU LEARN? Changes type 1 and type 2 and their applications and the adequate use of emotions in the Evolution Loops


Sylviane Cannio is one of the pioneers of coaching in Belgium. She started her coaching career with a ‘coach attitude’ during her executive trainings and classes at the university where she was teaching Strategic Management. She began accompanying teams in 1994 and later on individuals. She accompanies executives and leaders on four continents. As a true globetrotter, multi-lingual and multi-cultural, she trains coaches in several countries through her school Nova Terra Coach Training, and is a well-appreciated keynote in major conferences. In 2006, while organising the European Coaching Conference in Brussels, she had the privilege of linking ICF with the EMCC as her wish was to help the profession being regulated at the European level. She is member of both organisations for many years and likes to link people around the world. Between 2008 and 2010, she was a member of the Global Board of the ICF and Vice-President ICF Global in 2010. Through her school, Nova Terra, she has the opportunity to disseminate global coaching across borders – insisting on integrating the four ontological levels: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Her tool, Evolution Loops, is described in her book ‘Coaching Excellence’ written with Viviane Launer and available at LID Publishing London.
