9-11-19: Zoom Room: "Coaching Supervision: What is it?…And why Should I Bother?"

Facilitated by Pat Marum, MPA, CHIC, PCC, CSC

Satisfies the ICF requirements for:
0.5 CCE – Core Competency
1.0 CCE Resource Development

Been hearing the growing "buzz" about Coaching Supervision? Been wondering just what it is? This is a way to satisfy your curiosity… and consider it in the future for CCEs. Since 2014, ICF credits Coach Supervision received as approved professional development, hour-for-hour up to 12 hours, in CORE for Credential Renewal.

Pat will define Coaching Supervision, explain how it differs from mentor coaching in general and ICF Mentor Coaching in particular, and offer a group Super-Vision experience so you can "taste and see" for yourselves.

The specific concepts that will be addressed in this educational offering are:

  • A descriptive definition of supervision or Super-Vision (as I coined the phrase in 2009)

  • An understanding of the 3 recognized intersection points of supervision and coaches’ journey

  • An understanding of which intersection point best serves a coach's current needs

You will walk away with:

  • A conceptual understanding of Coach Supervision, including where mentoring fits in

  • A recognition of the most appropriate intersection point for the coach

  • A group supervision experience to give dimension to the concept

6-22-19: Zoom Room: "Attention, Awareness & Embodied Cognition in Coaching"

Facilitated by Rod Francis, PCC

As coaches, our capacities for sustained deep attention, awareness and listening to both self and others are critical variables in our ability to catalyze and support deep lasting change in our clients. The seeming "outer" work of supporting change in clients in reality begins with the inner processes of both them and us — with the felt level of our experience.

Our capacity to engage generatively with this personal material profoundly shapes the nature of our and their subsequent impact in the world. There is much we can gain from practices that cultivate deep awareness, self-knowledge and connection to the typically subconscious source of our most creative intelligence.

Cognitive neuroscience’s current crush is with the domain of Embodied Cognition — a field which explores this vast terrain of inner experiencing, how it emerges as meaning and symbols and then impacts the world. In Human Potential Coaching we engage directly with this meaning-making process as a way of revealing the truest intentions, and accessing both clients' and coaches' greatest creativity and resourcefulness, potentiating deep transformation. This process draws heavily on these emergent fields of Embodied Cognition and contemplative neuroscience as it does on the work of pioneers such as the late Professor Eugene Gendlin.

5-22-19: Zoom Room: "Taming the Sabertooth: Coaching in a Stressful World"

Facilitated by Tracey Grove, PCC

Stress and anxiety are increasingly becoming issues in the workplace. Increased competition, longer working hours and higher performance expectations are all contributing to a stressful work environment.

And the news at home isn’t much better. Digitization and always-on technology have blurred the boundaries between work and personal life, removing the natural buffer between them and costing us our health.

For each of us, it is more important than ever to understand that while we cannot necessarily change our environment, we have the power to shift our response to it by building resilience. By helping our clients to challenge their assumptions, control their distractions and choose their responses, we can help them increase performance, balance, and happiness at work and at home. For coaches, this topic is important not only from the perspective of nurturing our own recovery from stress, but also in serving our clients through greater awareness of resilience.

5-4-19: In-Person: "Forest Bathing, Metaphor & You"

Mindy Schlimgen, Guide & Nature-based Coach
Malia Monaco, Progress Coach

This is a group coaching workshop for anyone who seeks to explore & connect with nature through sensory awareness and mindfulness practices. The morning will be experiential with coaching in the forest. Forest bathing is a slow walk through nature with intentions to slow down, awaken your senses, be present, and heal body and mind. Forest bathing started in 1982 as Shinrin-yoku (in Japan), and is simply the experience of immersing ourselves fully in nature. Proven health benefits (from medical and neuroscience research) include significant stress reduction, boosted immune function, improved mood, reduced fatigue, increased creativity...among others. Our afternoon exploration will deepen our discussion into the power of metaphor, and how you can take what you’ve learned today into your future.

4-29-19: In-Person TUCSON, AZ: "IMPROV(e) Your Coaching … and Life!"

Facilitated by Jeff Thoren, DVM, PCC, BCC

How can the principles of improv (theatre without a script), help you be a more effective coach?

Actually, when it comes to being present in the moment, letting go of control, trusting the process, and adapting to whatever your coachee (or life) gives us, we have much to learn from the principles of improvisation. 

In this session we'll invite you to consider the possibility that every coaching conversation is a piece of improv. And … to explore how improv skills relate directly to core coaching competencies like establishing trust, coaching presence and active listening.

Plan on leaving your inner critic at the door and on enjoying a fun and safe learning environment! Come prepared to be active and please wear comfortable shoes!

4-10-19: Zoom Room: “The ICF Core Competencies: Your Pathway to Growth and Coaching Mastery"

Facilitated by Carly Anderson, MCC

When is the last time you revisited the 11 core competencies prior to a coaching call?

Do you change hats in the middle of a coaching call? Do you put on the teacher hat? The consultant hat? The mentor hat? Is your client aware of the difference? Are you doing this because your client is requesting it or because that becomes your comfort zone? If the answer is your comfort zone, what opportunities are lost to be of further service to your client that could create further ownership and impact for your clients?

How important is credentialing as far as making business decisions? More and more organizations, including government, are requiring coaches to have PCC or MCC credential to coach their employees including at more senior levels.

Join us and you will:

  • Be inspired to further deepen your understanding of the Core Competencies and how they create further impact in service of your clients.

  • Recognize that being credentialed is important to your coaching business.

  • Become more conscious of your comfort zone during the coaching call.

  • Witness on-the-spot coaching from the presenter.

  • Credentialing and the business case. Because she was MCC, Carly was invited to interview for a coaching engagement that ended up being a $250,000 coaching contract.

  • Understand how studying the Core Competencies is a growth path to mastery
