Growthbeans Coaching Series

Description

WHY COACHING

LAST SESSION IN 2018

Regardless of our age, roles and responsibilities, one of the key elements for our growth, well-being and personal success is to have an objective sounding board to help us gain more awareness and clarity of our lives and current situation. This is different from seeking advice from a friend or a mentor because the key to unlock our potential lies within us and not purely based on external advice. The Growthbeans coaching series is created to enable you to increase your personal awareness to gain clarity and overcome challenges faced in life. We make coaching accessible to you. Join us to experience coaching.

In this session, we will review the benefits of coaching and its relevance in the future of work. We will also go through some key elements of coaching, understand what it is and and what it is not, and have the opportunity to experience coaching. 

Participants coming for the session will be paired with a coach for individualised coaching, based on first-come first serve basis.

Art Therapy Engagement Session

Description

When was the last time you took a pause to reflect? In our busy lives managing school, work or relationships and volunteering on top of everything, we may have forgotten to take stock of where we are or who we are. In the midst of doing so many things, we may have detached ourselves from feelings. This detachment may lead us to being unfamiliar with our emotions and not knowing how to express them.  

So why not join us for a night to express our feelings through the Art medium? Art Therapy is a creative form of self-expression which promotes physical, psychological and emotional well-being. 

Be engaged in this Art Therapy Session by The Red Pencil Singapore as we express ourselves through the means of Arts!

*No prior arts experience required.
