I teach coaches & supervisors to inspire their clients to authenticity, truth & change with images & personal snapshots.

I’m teaching workshops on photos and photo-taking in coaching, personal development, social change actions, and for self-acceptance. I teach small groups up to ten persons, and individually. The upcoming course is on 14th – 16th of October 2020. Below is the description of the workshop.

„ONE IMAGE – MANY WORDS. Photography in Coaching and Personal Development”

A professional course for coaches, therapists, and art therapists, social workers, counselors

3-day fully experiential course in using photos and photo-taking in Coaching and Personal Development in order to deepen insights, enlarge perspective, support exploration of the self and discovery of the abundance within the self, catalyze communication, increase motivation and engagement into the process. A unique program developed based on solid and diverse experience, creative approach, passion, and authenticity. In line with ethics and core competencies required in the coaching profession worldwide.

What important is in it for you?
As a coach, you probably want to make the coaching you do stand out as memorable, inspire your clients to authenticity, unblock thoughts and emotions. Photographs make it easier and faster. I’ve been using photos and clients’ snapshots for a couple of years already and I’m always amazed how they are very helpful in enhancing self-reflection and deeper insight, finding new perspectives, giving the voice to intuition, the raise of emotions and lead to engagement, ‘aha’ moments. They also help to break the ice and get out of a rut.

This course is an opportunity to grow in the international, multicultural environment in the center of Warsaw. It is taught in English. It is open to people from all over the world. It was my dream and vision since a long time to create space for learning that connects people from various cultures, mindsets, religions, countries, climates and continents in Poland. I believe that this work will contribute to the world of open minds, hearts and borders.

It is an outstanding program developed based on solid and diverse experience, creative approach, passion and authenticity by Dorota Raniszewska, a Coach and Trainer, the author of “ONE IMAGE – MANY WORDS. Photography in personal development, healing, and education. Notes from a personal journey’, a unique book on using photography in coaching and personal development – available on Amazon.
