Ivan Kobelev


If we put together elements that haven't been put together before, we break the ground for the new ways of co-existence. Qualified in ESN pool of trainers and trainer mentors, I design processes for group learning, connecting and creating together. I use holistic approach, body movement, outdoor, art working with attitudes and within own-self. My topics are servant leadership, personal and team development, hosting group conversations (forum, open space), ICL, peace education.

Ivan Kobelev has 3 references for past work as a trainer.

Educational pathway

In order to qualify myself with ESN Pool of Trainers system of standards, I've undergone 3 TFT's of ESN in total (trainings for trainers), delivered trainings under mentorship and continuous self-reflections. At my 4th TFT, under UNOY Peacebuilders, I settled my expertise in peace education and conflict transformation. Taking Practicing Coaching and Mentoring training (participating and later assisting) of Olde Vechte I have developped my coaching skills. Parallelly to acquiring the tools, I've been taking intense personal development trainings of Olde Vechte and Synergy network to grow as a person (5 in total). I am certified by 2 residential Project Management trainings, I took part in experiential learning training and contributed to a peace education competence framework research. My path started many years ago with training for developing servant leadership and emotional intelligence skills which formed majority of my believes about facilitation.
