LINK BETWEEN TANGO & GESTALT COACHING
In essence Tango has a very simple dance structure, one person walking forward and the other walking backwards. Similarly, coaching is essentially a simple conversation between two people one ‘leading’ with interventions the other responding. Gestalt focuses on the relationship ‘dance’ between people, in the present. From these basic principles there is a wealth of tools and techniques which can be developed into a wonderful complex and subtle ‘dance’ that produces amazing results.
DANCING IN THE MOMENT
BEING PRESENT & FLEXIBLE IN RELATIONSHIP
Tango and Gestalt Coaching illustrates that:
“Tango must be simply danced, with immense feeling, with a sense of energy flowing between the dancers. This energy grows or decreases as the music ebbs and flows. It is a private conversation, something to be quietly shared, not publicly displayed.”
Bruno E. Romero - Origins of Argentine Tango
We are delighted to have John, founder and board member of Academy of Executive Coaching ('AoEC') share with us his deep experience in Gestalt Coaching and Tango. John's books (Systemic Team Coaching & The Fertile Void) help demystify complex Gestalt principles and combining with Tango to translate them gracefully into clear and impactful ways to make a difference to our Coaching practice.

Gabrielle: I think I am a little afraid. Afraid to make a mistake.
Al Pacino: If you make a mistake, get all tangled up, just tango on.
