Coaching Others To Do Their Best - Bath
Eventbrite.co.uk
10am - 1pm


Coaching Others To Do Their Best
This event is available free of charge to businesses based in Bath and North East Somerset thanks to the European Regional development Fund, Bath and North East Somerset Council and other members of the Enterprising West of England consortium.
If you are based elsewhere please call us to discuss how else we may be able to help
 
When it comes to being a leader and a coach, there’s a great quote from Alan Mulally, a retired CEO of Ford.  He once said to his senior management team:
 “We must get back into profit, but I know less than you do, and that’s okay!”
The point here is that your business will grow and so will your people, who will develop the skills your business needs to take it beyond where you started out.  They will become the experts.
Coaching isn’t about you telling your people what to do; it’s about helping them to think for themselves, to take responsibility for their actions, and to learn and develop with your support and feedback.
This workshop explains the rationale for coaching, and why you will get the most from your people when you adopt the role of manager-as-coach.
We begin with the GROW model as a structure for coaching conversations, followed by practising that structure, with the opportunity to coach, to be coached and to observe the conversation.
 We then introduce five more coaching skills:
·         Rapport, the art of observing and mirroring conversational style and body language.
·         Listening that truly demonstrates that you are paying attention to them.
·         Questioning that helps them to create solutions.
·         Feedback which helps them learn and develop, and creates a better culture.
·         Difficult Conversations which need preparation and structure, so as to achieve a constructive outcome and reduced conflict. 
You will then vote on the top two, we delve into those in more depth, and again, you will have the opportunity to practice and learn from fellow delegates.
 
 The presenter: John Hardwick
 John runs More From Coaching Ltd and supports new and established leaders who want to develop strong and trusting working relationships with their teams, and get results through the efforts of their people. 
He has over 40 years of engineering management, design, R&D, supply chain and leadership coaching & training experience.

21st Century U.S. Industrial Policy and Its Illusive Beneficiaries
Eventbrite.co.uk
5:30pm - 7pm


A Centre for Governance & Regulation (CGR) public lecture in association with the Institute for Policy Research (IPR).
On Thursday 26 April, Professor Amy Glasmeier of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology will give a lecture on industrial policy in the US at the University of Bath.
This is a CGR event run in association with the IPR. The CGR is a centre within the School of Management that combines expertise across various social sciences.
Abstract: Some would say industrial policy (IP) has always been with us. A creature of early 20th-century local economic development practice, the downturn of the 1970s inspired the formation of U.S. federal, state and local policies designed to harness the benefits of sectoral growth in order to counter a decline of traditional industries. The resulting economic development programming yielded few winners while unleashing an arms race of smokestack chasing and indiscriminant rewards distribution. 40 years later, few places gained sufficient leverage to reshape their economies around new sectors. On today’s stage, we find a new type of industrial policy, one with a modern twist: financial backing of unprecedented scale (billion dollar bets). How will such bets play out and will communities benefit? Do the goals of this new policy targeting include beneficiaries of by-gone eras or is the resulting development impulse a difference in kind? Can we formulate policies to foster inclusive economic development or is the price of progress the creation of more “left behinds”? Using the case of life sciences in the Boston Metropolitan Area of the U.S., we set up the story of an agency designed to foster growth of extraordinary scope and then ask the question how the local scale fits in if at all in an era of new (old) industrial development.
Speaker profile
Amy Glasmeier is Professor of Economic Geography and Regional Planning, in Department of Urban Studies and Planning at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She runs LRISA, the lab on Regional Innovation and Spatial Analysis, in DUSP. Professor Glasmeier is a Founding Editor of the Cambridge Journal of Regions, Economy and Society, the leading international journal on the spatial dimensions of contemporary socio-economic-political change.
Professor Glasmeier's research focuses economic opportunities for communities and individuals through the investigation of the role of geographic access and the effect of locational accident on human development. She won a 2018 grant from the National Science Foundation for her Collaborative Research on Understanding the benefits and mitigating the risks of interdependence in critical infrastructure systems. Recent awards include the Fellow award from American Association of Geographers (December 2017) and the MIT Office of the Dean for Graduate Education Receipt of the Award from the “Committed to Caring” campaign (2017).
She is currently writing a textbook on the Geography of the Global Energy Economy. Her other project, "Good Bye American Dream" traces the ideology of opportunity that undergirds America's relationship to the poor. Through analysis of census data, popular media, and personal narratives, Professor Glasmeier is exploring the contradictions in the most sacred of constructs by demonstrating the ephemeral nature of economic opportunity encumbered by locational accident, institutional inertia, and the unintended consequences of public policy. The work builds off of her long running Living Wage Calculator, which analyzes the minimum level of income required for individuals and families to pay for basic living expenses. Recent press includes an interview on MIT Spectrum.
Professor Glasmeier holds a Masters and PhD from UC Berkeley and currently serves as Associate Planning Board Member in the Town of Cohasset.

Endurance and Resistance Exercise: Friends or Foes
Eventbrite.co.uk
6:30pm - 8:30pm


The Improving Human Function Research Group at the Department for Health, University of Bath, is pleased to invite you to a FREE talk titled:
Endurance and Resistance Exercise: Friends or Foes
There is often a perception that aerobic (e.g. running or cycling) and resistance (e.g. weight-training) exercise do not go hand-in-hand. That endurance training may interfere or hamper resistance training ‘gains’ (i.e. muscle growth, size and strength). However, is this FACT or FICTION? How far may this be from the truth?
Come along to hear the latest research on how to best combine YOUR endurance and resistance exercise (i.e. concurrent training) and for practical tips on fuelling and periodising nutritional intake to GET THE MOST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK!
We have two talks lined-up from two excellent guest speakers who both hold extensive practical experience and are at the forefront of this field:
Talk 1:   Optimising Concurrent Endurance and Resistance Exercise
Dr Lee Hamilton (University of Stirling)
Lee is currently a Lecturer in the Health and Exercise Sciences Research Group at the University of Stirling. He is a leading figure in the field of molecular adaptations to endurance and resistance exercise, publishing over 50 research articles and presenting at many international renowned conferences / events. In this talk, Lee will discuss:

Concurrent training
What is the ‘interference effect’?
Optimising and scheduling aerobic and resistance exercise to maximise the benefits
Nutritional insights to support concurrent training (including recommended protein intakes and more!)

Talk 2:   Food for Thought: Fuelling Endurance and Resistance Exercise
Dr Sam Impey (University of Birmingham and Team Wiggins Nutritionist and Exercise Physiologist)
After obtaining his PhD from Liverpool John Moores University, Sam now holds a post-doctoral research position in the School of Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation Sciences at the University of Birmingham. Alongside this, Sam is the nutritionist and Exercise Physiologist to the professional cycling team ‘Team Wiggins’. His research and practitioner interests lie strongly in nutritional modulation to enhance training adaptation and performance with his talk focusing on:

Current nutrition recommendations to maximise training and performance
Nutritional periodisation: what’s it all about?
The practical application and incorporating nutritional periodisation into training

Badminton (Bristol)
The Bath & Bristol Everything Meetup Group
8pm - 9pm


Hi,

Badminton is booked for 8:00pm on Thursday 26th April (Main Hall court 4) at Kingsdown Sports Centre, Portland Street, BS2 8HL. All are welcome, it's a 60 minute long session and we may head to a nearby pub afterwards.

Please let me know if you are going to attend by Wednesday at the latest. I would prefer that we have at least 4 players, otherwise I may cancel the booking.

Note: When arriving at reception you will need to say that you're attending a badminton session in my name (Matthew Barker). Also, they may require that you to sign up for a (free) Everyone Active membership.

See you there,
Matt ([masked])

FAQ

Q: How does it work?
A: It's pretty informal, but I would like to know in advance if you are going to attend. (If, by the day before the booking, fewer than 4 people say they are going, I may cancel the booking.) On the day, just turn up in the sports hall with your kit at the booked time and we'll play as many games as we can in the time, rotating through the available players after each one. Usually we play doubles up to 11 points, but this can vary depending on the number of players. Afterwards, we often go to a nearby pub afterwards for a drink and a chat.

Q: How often do you play?
A: Usually every two weeks.

Q: How much does it cost?
A: Between £1 and £5 per session, depending on how many people turn up, but usually between £1.50 and £2.50.

Q: What is the standard of play?
A: This is hard to specify, but it's mixed and generally not high, so a novice shouldn't find it too challenging.

Q: How many courts are booked?
A: Only one court is booked, but if there are more than 4 people we play to 11 points (rather than the usual 21) to allow waiting players to get a game more often.

Q: Who can attend?
A: It is open to all (and usually has a combination of men and women). Come along and see if it suits you.

Q: I'm new to the group, how can I find you?
A: Sometimes the expected court number will be specified in advance, otherwise if you don't fancy asking around, you can let me know you'll be coming and I can arrange to meet you.

Q: What parking facilities are there?
A: The sports centre has its own car parks and there is usually on-street parking nearby. There are also bicycle stands outside the entrance.

Q: Can I just turn up for the pub afterwards?
A: Of course, though we don't always go and the choice of pub can vary so it's best to let me know in advance.

Q: Do I need my own racquet?
A: Preferably, though you can hire one from the sports centre (currently for £2 with £5 deposit). For newcomers, I can sometimes bring a spare on request.

Q: What type of shuttles are used?
A: Feather shuttles are provided and included in the session cost.

Q: What rules do you play with?
A: We usually play using 'rally point scoring', i.e. points are scored regardless of who serves, and when the serving side loses a rally, the serve changes immediately to the opponents. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Badminton#Scoring_system_and_service.

Pencil To Paint: Apr - Jun 2018
Eventbrite.co.uk
18th April - 13th June


“I think that painting today is pure intuition and luck.”
Francis Bacon on Matthew Smith (1909-1992)
For most of us, our relationship with art begins with a line. We take a pencil or a crayon and delineate our idea. In our enthusiasm, we may even attempt to colour it in. In the experience of many, that attempt leads only to disappointment. We know that a painting is more than just a coloured-in drawing, but how do we do it? What exactly is the difference?
This course explores the gulf between drawing and painting and then seeks to provide a bridge between the two disciplines. Beginning with simple pencil studies, we will then develop our work in both charcoal and ink, gaining confidence in our abilities, before embarking on five weeks of painting in bold colour.
This course is open to all-comers and is ideal for beginners or those who wish to take their art in a new direction. 
The theme for this particular 8 week Pencil To Paint course will be abstraction and we will look at how form, gesture and emotion all play their part in successful picture-making, regardless of genre.
Topics will include:
Mark-making
Line, measurement and proportion
Notān
Colour: theory and mixing
Tables and chairs and a roll of newsprint paper are provided. Please bring a drawing board, paper or pad and your preferred drawing media. Materials required for sessions using colour will be discussed nearer the time.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available for a small donation.
16:30 - 18:00
Wednesdays:  18, 25 April; 02, 09, 23, 30 May; 06, 13 June (8 x 1.5 hour sessions)
