Join us on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 for the ICF-Toronto Chapter Meeting.
We welcome speaker, Troy Yorke, on From Resistance to Resilience.
Every coach meets resistance in some form or another. Some coaches shy away from it, others try to fight it. But the best way to deal with resistance, claims Troy Yorke, former CTI front of the room leader, and founder of Emergent Essence Dynamics, is to embrace it. Join us for an interactive talk and demo showing how to use resistance to build resilience and create sustainable transformation in your clients.
- Function of Resistance and how it can impede or accelerate the transformational cycle
- Four main types of fear-based resistance (main behaviours) 1) Fight 2) Flee 3) Escape/Seek 4) Cling
- Simple tools to accept and “listen to” resistance to extract and activate innate Resilience
- Simple technique to surface resilience and test its integrity in the face of fear, stress or weakness (ie: normal resistance)
- How the coach can increase their own presence to embody resistance as a way to anchor and reinforce a client’s strengths and resourcefulness
- Tips and tools on how to deal with some common forms of subtle resistance such as ambiguity, numbness, lack of focus, lack of response, low energy, etc.
