Understanding Diversity Equity and Inclusion with Terri Donohue

In the coaching world, recognizing the value of diversity, equity, and inclusion is paramount. That's why I am thrilled to introduce a series of workshops that I have personally created to empower coaches like yourself. These workshops are designed to equip you with the knowledge, skills, and mindset necessary to make a profound and positive impact.

1. What is DEI: Lay a solid foundation by exploring the fundamental concepts of DEI. Gain a deep understanding of the value and impact of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

2. Embedding DEI: Discover how to infuse DEI principles into the very fabric of your brand or organization. Uncover strategies to create an inclusive culture, attract diverse clients, and enhance the impact of your coaching services.

3. Exploring Culture through a DEI Lens: Recognize the significance of cultural diversity and its impact on relationships. Be culturally aware and promote inclusivity when working with diverse clients.

4. Cultural Humility in Allyship: To fully embrace allyship, cultivate cultural humility by being open to learning about other cultures beyond cultural competence.

No matter where you are in your journey, attending one or several of these workshops can enhance your understanding. Register now to secure your spot and invite your team, stakeholders, or organization to join as well. Do not miss out on this transformative experience that values and uplifts diverse perspectives, enhances client outcomes, and drives positive societal change.

**Read our blog to learn more about what resilience coaching is.

From our graduates:

The biggest tangible change I’ve noticed from participating in the CRCP, is how I talk to my clients about resilience. What I appreciated the most about this program, is that it provided me with a workable framework to share the ideas around resilience with clients.

- Chantal Breytenbach, PhD, ACC

As a result of this program, I have achieved more optimal balance and a greater sense of well-being. I would recommend this program to anyone who wants to increase their own resilience and coach others to increase theirs.

- Julia Rabinovitch, Solution-focused Leadership Coach, PCC

Mentor Coaching with Jo Bennett, ACPC, PCC, ACE

Engage with confidence in a personalized 1:1 space where you can flourish as a coach!

For five years I have mentored clients in the early stages of their coaching journey: individuals in ICF accredited education programs, those applying for an ACC or PCC credential, as well as ICF members renewing their ACC credential. I am specifically trained in mentor coaching, and I am registered as a mentor coach with the ICF.

I take a coach approach with mentor clients to deepen their self reflection skills, collaborating to explore growth edges while celebrating current gifts. There is ample time to steep in the ICF Code of Ethics and Core Competencies for rich alignment. We co-generate thoughtful feedback on two or more recorded calls. My coach clients build on insights discovered during and between our sessions, as they witness their growth in their own client’s results.

More information is available on my website: https://solomojo.ca/icf-mentor-coach/

It is a joy and privilege to work with newer coaches. Their dedication to learning inspires me to grow and thrive as a professional.

I look forward to working with you!
