    Title: “The Neuroscience of Coaching: Relevance, Retention, and Results”

    Date: Thursday, April 9, 2020 – 12:00pm, CST

    Speaker: Ursula Pottinga, CPCC, PCC

    CCEU: .75 Core Competency + .25 Resource Development credits 


    Synopsis

    In this inter-active webinar, Ursula Pottinga will be touching on three neuroscience components that will explain WHY coaching works – if it works in coaching, there is a neuroscience explanation for it! We will cover the neuroscience of change (neuroplasticity), which really means: neuroplasticity = coaching, the stress curve and how to effectively get back and stay “in the zone” and the balance of being and doing and what it means to activate both neural networks, when you need them most!!! Why would you want to know this?

    • Relevance – clients will learn how their brain operates which then creates sustainable outcomes for the client – even when you are not around. They will experience the impact and positive outcomes of a regulated brain.
    • Retention – clients will stay with you longer since you are offering new tools, new information and a research based rationale that change does not happen overnight (neuroplasticity).
    • Results – neuroscience normalizes the behavior and gives it a rational explanation of why we sometimes over-react, forget things, have lost all our empathy (and the car keys...!)

    Topic: Coaching for Compassion

    Facilitator: Susanna Clavello, ACC, ICFSA Board Member

    Location: Zoom Webinar

    In the current climate of uncertainty, individuals may have a hard time staying calm and objective, and showing up at their best. Personal struggles, inner barriers, worries and fears may be overwhelming, and getting in people’s way of showing up at their best.

    Into this context speaks the coaching competency of Co-Creating the Coaching Relationship:

    • Partnering with the client to define what the client believes they need to address or resolve to achieve what they want to accomplish in the session

    • Partnering with the client to define or reconfirm measures of success for what the client wants to accomplish in the coaching engagement or individual session

    Successful coaches build resonant relationships with their clients where hope, mindfulness, compassion and playfulness are keys to overcoming the damage from chronic stress, and where growth and resilience can be nurtured.

    In this Coaching Mastermind we will discuss how to address the real needs of the client and their expected outcomes when challenges are approached with emotional intelligence versus “fixing what’s wrong.” 

    Who should attend:

    • HR and talent development professionals

    • Emerging Coaches

    • Seasoned Coaches

    • Talent Leaders that coach individual and teams

    Your Zoom link will be included in your registration confirmation.

    Title: “Developmental Coaching Across Cultural Differences”

    Date: Thursday, May 14, 2020 – 12:00pm, CST

    Speaker: Akasha Saunders, PCC

    CCEU: .75 Core Competency + .25 Resource Development credits 


    Synopsis

    The coaching profession is growing. This is largely due to the efforts of coaches and coaching organizations across the globe that are focused on building awareness about the benefits of coaching. As awareness expands, more people want to be coached and not only White male executives, for example. Coaching has become more desirable and accessible to people from underrepresented cultural groups. One implication related to this trend is that coaches will need to improve their skills in coaching across cultural differences. Another implication is the need to understand how the coach and client develop vertically or make meaning of their worlds and the sociocultural factors that influence the realities they construct such as their coaching goals. This webinar is for coaches who want to effectively and ethically work with clients across cultural differences AND who want to help their client develop vertically to meet the demands of an increasingly complex inner and outer world.

    Title: “Three Lenses for Coaching Supervision: Developing a Reflective Practice for Coaches

    Date: Thursday, June 11, 2020 – 12:00pm, CST

    Speaker: Ken Giglio, PCC

    CCEU: .75 Core Competency + .25 Resource Development credits 


    Synopsis

    Executive and organizational coaches working with leaders, teams, and groups are immersed in complex, evolving organizational systems. This equally applies to transition and career coaches as there is always a systemic context to the coaching work. A coach’s ability to show up confident, competent, creative, and compassionate for their clients depends on their capacity to review and reflect on their work. This experiential session, using a live group supervision session and dialog, aims to illustrate coaching supervision as a reflective practice helping coaches be attentive and present to themselves, their clients, and organizations as systems.

    Being an effective systemic coach means being attentive and present with the leaders we coach and reflecting on our work through three lenses—Self (how is my coaching client’s situation affecting me?), Others, (what is the quality of my client relationship and my relationship to the client organization?), and the System (What is happening within the system/s the client operates in, and what effects are being felt by the client?). Coaching Supervision creates the reflective and relational space for coaches to look through these three lenses to learn and develop from a systems perspective in service of their clients and organizations. In this experiential session, through live supervision sessions, participants will have the opportunity to give and receive coaching supervision and to experience, through a reflective dialog, how to view their work through a more systemic lens.
