by CINERGY® Coaching

Conflict management coaching is a specialized type of executive coaching and leaders seek out this process to strengthen their conflict intelligence. This includes optimizing their competence in areas such as effectively managing their own interpersonal disputes, delivering and responding to difficult messages, responsively addressing differences of opinions, motivating conflict engagement, and demonstrating resilience after challenging communications on problematic issues.

In this 8 week online program on Conflict Management Coaching, certified coaches will:

  • learn the 7-stage CINERGY® model for coaching leaders through conflict;
  • learn the principles specific to providing conflict management coaching for leaders;
  • gain increased insight into your own conflict management skills;
  • learn what distinguishes conflict management coaching for leaders from other types of coaching;
  • experience this type of coaching as a coach and as a client; and
  • gain new tools specific to conflict management coaching.

Upcoming dates for online program: Tuesdays from September 5 to October 24, 2017 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time (no class the week of September 26 – this week will be used for skills practices)

**Please note participants must be certified coaches in order to register for this program.

National Emotional Freedom Techniques Training Institute ( Workshop

Stressed brains cannot learn and stressed brains aren’t capable of sustaining significant change.

No matter your coaching specialty, you and your clients are experiencing the long and sticky fingers of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s). It is important that you know the basic information and research about the extent to which ACE’s predict poor physical, emotional, mental, and performance outcomes later in life.

The National Emotional Freedom Techniques Training Institute ( invites you to join with other coaches in a full day of learning about the connection between ACE’s and the quality of your coaching outcomes.

No, you’re not a therapist … you’re a coach. However, every client brings their adverse childhood experiences to their coaching with you. It is vital to educate yourself about how ACE’s show up in your client work. This knowledge will empower you to get better client results.

Sunday July 16th, Markham ON. 9am – 3pm. Register here

NeftTI is offering this workshop at cost, $25 plus HST, to get this profound life changing information into the hands of coaches.
