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"

Facilitators:
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

4-3-19: Zoom Room: "The Coaching Agreement – Protecting the Client, the Profession, and You"

Facilitated by Scott Howard, PCC, JD, MA, CEC

Question - What is the number one way that coaches are getting in trouble with their clients?

Answer – Not having a proper coaching agreement.

In this webinar we’ll discuss a four-step process where you as the coach can ensure your clients have a good understanding of your coaching agreement and are clear on how it works. We’ll also discus strategies on creating a solid coaching agreement that serves both you and your client. We’ll examine how the coaching agreement is not just a document but an enduring dialog between coach and client that helps manage expectations
