Program structure

Group workshop component

Throughout the Sport Lab, participants will interact in person or online on topics of their choice that are central to their professional concerns. The goal is to deepen our knowledge and expertise by interacting on a regular basis and seeking outside help when needed. Eight meetings of 120 to 180 minutes, generally on weekday mornings, are scheduled;

Depending on the needs of the participants, external collaborators could be solicited

Individual support component

Individual coaching will be offered to each participant. This component will be based on the professional project outlined by each participant. The form of the coaching will vary from one coach to another. Meetings will be held mainly by videoconference.

Four individual sessions are planned

Reflective practice component

Throughout the LAB, readings or podcasts related to the theme will be offered, as well as some reflection and sharing tasks. The coach is expected to commit to the quest.
