We identified six benefits of taking coaching conversations outdoors which contribute to positive outcomes in coachee ratings
Side by side
Walking or sitting alongside the language coach is a unique aspect of outdoor coaching that differs to indoor or digital coaching, where most conversations happen sat opposite each other. Being alongside one another gives the coaches the sense of being less scrutinised, less judged, more relaxed and builds a connection with the language coach
Openness, space and expanse
Walking enabled coaches to experience the expanse of the nature
Being outdoors helped coaches to feel free, open, calm, relaxed or energised and made greater use of metaphor and analogy
Different ways of thinking
Being outdoors brought different experiences, different perspective and different ways of thinking to old situations
Movement and pace
Being outdoors allows the coachee
to play with movement and pace, to let it reflect their mood and express their emotions. Meandering, walking quickly,
standing or sitting still, give more time and ''space'' for reflection
Senses, feelings and emotions
Outdoor coaching engaged all the senses (even taste), leading to a fuller experience from the language coaching session
And what this tells us is that language coaching might be convenient online, enjoyable face to face, but outdoor environments also have significant benefits to offer.
« Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: every day I walk myself into a state of well being and walk away from every illness.
I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it. »
Soren Kierkegaard (1813 - 1855)
« Walking in a garden, in the countryside, surrounded by nature, listening to our professor talk to us about trees, flowers, and birds in English is very nice, friendly, and unique! »
