Experienced Coach Hungry for Something Truly New?

21 CCEs

Expanding the Coaching Space

Leaders operate in complex contexts, leaders are complex beings and the challenges leaders bring to coaching are beyond complex. You are smart enough to know it is not getting easier and wise enough to know it’s time to expand what’s possible in the leadership coaching conversation.

This program will:

  • Expand your capacity for sense-making: How to think like a leadership coach?
  • Deepen your competencies: How to talk/converse like a leadership coach?
  • Enhance your potential for impact: How to cultivate your own inner space - your presence as a leadership coach to access more of the potential in the coaching space?

Walk away with:

  • several newly formulated FutureSmart™ “big ideas” to help you and your clients make sense of the leadership space
  • new models, practices and tools to help you expand what you do in coaching conversations.

What’s not new?

What many committed coaches crave is the intimacy of an intensely personal and creatively engaging experience.

Expanding the Coaching Space is for people have coach training and experience under their belts and who are ready to hone your craft!

Date: Jan 18-20, 2017 -- Toronto

ICF Members: $1795.00 plus HST if you register before Dec 22, 2016.

Emotional Freedom Techniques

Are you hearing the buzz about EFT/tapping (Emotional Freedom Techniques)? It’s an evidence-based technique from the newly emerging field of Energy Psychology, integrating various coaching/therapy modalities from talking, cognitive behavioural strategies, NLP through to positive psychology. EFT gives you and your clients an ‘in the moment’ way to interrupt stress, overwhelm, fear, anger, sadness and other forms of resistance that stop your clients from getting the most out of your coaching wisdom, regardless of whether you’re helping them with health, wealth, relationships, peak performance or career issues. They get faster deeper results and you get a deep sense of satisfaction! Next class is Feb 25-27, 2017. Space fills quickly.

If you’d like to learn more visit my upcoming events page to attend an event or let’s chat.
