Coaching is a relatively young profession, which has been present for no more than a decade in Serbia and the region. In that time, its has proven to be a reliable ally on the road to success for many organizations and business people. The importance of this methodology has been recognized by numerous local and international companies which operate in Serbia, which have decided to incorporate coaching into their organizational culture.

One of the pioneers of coaching in Serbia, the consulting company Atria Group, is organizing the fifth regional PCM Coaching Conference this year in cooperation with Kahler Communications and HR World. The conference, scheduled for March 27 under the title “Keep up the Momentum”, will bring together 150 coaches and HR professionals.

During Pedja’s session you will get a chance to start the journey of self-knowledge and self-discovery, to cross over the limits and boundaries of our self-imposed ego identities, and ultimately get in touch with real, core identity. “Once you spark your Core Identity, you will be able to recognize it in others”.

Nelson Emilio will give a lecture in the Keep Up The Momentum With Influence section, titled “The power of ONE: Leveraging personal branding in a corporate world”.

For coaches, awareness is a key component in order for clients to reach their objectives. The Process Communication Model offers world class tools to better understand second by second behaviors and build a common language that can be used to identify more resources for ourselves or our coaches.

The conference will feature the following workshops:

Personality-Based Practice – Dragana Miletic

Even though it is about the types of personality, PCM has also for decades been helping millions of clients around the world, emphasising the diversity of our personality and the impossibility of classifying people into categories and types. This workshop will be dedicated to understanding the complexity of the personality mosaic and how PCM coaches can help their clients to get to know and enrich their personality.

Creative Coaching – Marija Branovacki and Bojana Vesic Antic

Creativity is not a skill exclusive for people in traditionally creative professions. It is not something you either have, or you do not. On this interactive workshop you will have an opportunity to learn how to use creativity in coaching with people/teams and implement it in decision making process, meetings, goal settings and motivation.

Coaching Through Design Thinking – Nikola Rajic and Milica Picuric

Design Thinking is a very hip concept, for it has enabled all types of organizations to deliver products and solutions that directly answer people’s needs and solve their problems. This workshop examines what design thinking is, what similarities it shares with several coaching models, and how it can be applied for optimal results in coaching engagements. It will also examine what some differences are, and how to avoid pitfalls. Participants will be walked through the design thinking process and will then practice the concept through role playing.

The PCM Couching Conference is scheduled for March 27, 2019.
