The 3rd Coaching Conference “Hands on “, was dedicated to the different coaching niches.

“Keep Up The Momentum“
Starting point of every success is the wish. Anyway, we will be successful only if that is important for us as the breathing is. That means that every impulse is counted. That by every heart beat we are closer to our goal. If we are speaking about team management, continuous learning and self-development, us as parents or us in next 10 years, we can say that coaching is proven and faithful partner on our way to success. Five years in a row we are working on development of leaders and managers by using coaching as a tool that really makes a difference. We believe in continuous and exponential development of human potential. We also believe that a human is harmonious and inseparable whole of its own society roles, that are well combined into a unique symphony.
This year’s Coaching Conference is dedicated to you! To what is really important to you. According to that, we carefully picked the topics and the speakers.

Brain to Brain Coaching – Applying neuroscience in coaching as a business
Coaching is about change and growth. From applied neuroscience perspective, coaching is basically stimulating client’s brain plasticity through meaningful conversation. This speech will explore the cutting edge of applied neuroscience studies and principles that explains why human being can change, how to create sustainable change, and why some coaching methods are ineffective while some other methods truly create significant impact. The presentation will also cover some essential understandings about the mechanism of inter-brain synchrony between the coach and the client.

It will show how brain-based coaching intervention may induce significant changes, not only in the observable behavior and habit, but also in the neural structure, bio functions, and brain patterns. The participants will be enlightened about how the brain science can be embedded in professional coaching practice.
Keep Up The Momentum With Journey
My Identity Journey
Over the last few decades the concept of identity became one prominent way to re-conceptualise “the self”. Generally said, “the self” is viewed as series of identities that can be simultaneously presented. Once evoked, individuals’ actions are directed to having others verify identities. At the same time, identities can act as filters of selective perception as we interact with the world
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. One session will not be enough to completely explore it, but it can definitely invite you to raise the awareness and open that questions that will help you to get in touch with it through time. Once you spark your Core Identity, you will be able to recognise it in others. Regarding that, you will be able to reach and support others on a global scale.
By recognising our birth given purpose, we will have an opportunity to leave a legacy to the next generations.

Creating awareness in Coaching: A way to gain clarity and make changes
„What is more important than awareness? Awareness for us as coaches in our work is a key component in order for our clients to reach their objectives. Awareness is the key to responsibility, to response ability. Responsibility of our own Thoughts, Emotions and Actions. Awareness on how to create rapport, how to recognize distress when it occurs and how to manage it effectively.
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.“
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. On this workshop, we will talk about understanding the complexity of the personality mosaic and how PCM coaches can help their clients to get to know and enrich their personality.
- How to use the knowledge about our and client’s personality in the best possible way?
- How can PCM help us remove the frameworks we were once put in?
- How to step out of the comfort zone but keep the solid base?

Coaching Through Design Thinking
It is hard for a day to go by without a mention of design thinking in any type of business centered news stream. It is a very hip concept, for it has enabled all types of organisations to deliver products and solutions that directly answer people’s needs and solve their problems. While many define design thinking through their own prism, at its core is a process well defined by Stanford’s school:
- Empathize – observe, engage, and listen
- Define – shift through data, figure out the problem, and address it
- Ideate – brainstorming to generate as many options
- Prototype – experimentation, see what works, and learn from what doesn’t
- Test – Refine the prototype, bring back to the user
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.

Recognition of elementary needs on personality level of every individual is more often accepted as important factor and condition for professional and personal development. Understanding our own strengths, capabilities, possibilities, emotions and thoughts contributes to forming specific point of view of our own personality, especially about self-awareness. For coaches, self-awareness is crucial in working with clients. Coaching empowers self-awareness of clients by establishing strong contact with their “self” in all phases of coaching process. Strength of this process lies in coach that creates space for widening client’s self-awareness.

“People live as long as the story about them lives on”, my father told me once. Such a simple sentence, yet something that influence my life even today.
These days, my curiosity about stories took a bit different direction. I am curious with stories about people’s lives. What really matters to them? What are they drawn to? What kind of activities do they tend to engage in voluntarily? What absorbs them most? What sort of questions do they ask and what type of points do they make? All of this, helps me to truly understand context, culture and their non-obvious needs to generate better solutions for them. Which is what I do for a living. I work as Design Thinking Coach and Agile Master at Robert Bosch Power Tools. As a part of Global Digital Unit I support teams in product development and change management topics. I studied Design Thinking at HPI School of Design Thinking in Potsdam University. I published a paper on topic “Specifics of Design Thinking in Ideation phase” which I presented in Chamber of Commerce of Republic of Serbia. I am certified Erickson Team Coach and NLP Master.
