    Core Competency #5: Active Listening

    May 4, 2015
    7:00 PM - 8:15 PM EST

    *** 1.25 CCEUs ***

    Do you hear…or…do you listen? There’s a big difference. We all believe we listen and then we learn we often don’t fully engage and get the complete meaning of what our clients are telling us. To become a masterful listener takes practice and dedication to the “art of listening.” Besides understanding the depth of this core competency, learn a question to keep in your mind that will deepen your listening. Also, learn three levels of listening and which are used in masterful coaching.

    June 1, 2015
    7:00 PM - 8:15 PM EST

    *** 1.25 CCEUs ***

    Socrates knew how to do it, do you? How do you effectively find that which is within and bring it forth? Is your questioning an inquisition? Does your questioning lead to greater awareness? What makes your questioning powerful? What makes your questioning wimpy? Masterful questioning moves your clients to greater clarity and better choices. Learn two very simple techniques for creating powerful questioning that support or challenge your clients’ thinking and actions and move them to what they want.

    Core Competency #7: Direct Communication

    July 6, 2015
    7:00 PM - 8:15 PM EST

    *** 1.25 CCEUs ***

    “Saying what is so”…what’s so difficult about that? However, this core competency is often difficult for coaches, especially newer coaches. Perhaps you don’t want to be perceived as mean or you don’t want to step on your clients’ toes or you’re afraid you would be leading or giving advice. So, don’t be shy. If you’re having trouble with this one you’re in good company. Let’s examine it together and learn the positive power of it and how to do it. It is rather easy, once you get the hang of it…and…the effect is profound. Onward and forward with direct communication!

    Personal Connection:
    The Science Behind the Art
    Presented by: Janet Baldwin-Anderson, PhD

    Thursday, September 10, 2015
    8:30 to 11:30 AM

    Location:
    Maryland University of Integrative Health
    7750 Montpelier Rd, Laurel, MD 20723

    How do we foster attunement and connection
    —within ourselves and in our relationships?

    How do we engage with our clients to create relationships
    that foster meaningful growth and change?

    Research has pointed to the quality of the coach-client relationship as a critical factor in promoting successful client outcomes. This session will highlight key research findings that reveal the science behind the art of personal connection with our clients. The interdisciplinary sciences of the brain, the mind, and relationships—known as interpersonal neurobiology—provide theoretical evidence in support of what we coaches already know: a safe, intimate, and trusting relationship requires us to form a personal sense of attunement not only with the client, but also with our self.

    In this highly-interactive and information-filled session, participants will:

    • learn key concepts from the science of personal connection (including functions surrounding the brain, mind, and distributed nervous system);
    • practice mindfulness to attune to the self and others; and
    • engage in partner exercises to evoke and apply the experience of attunement in coaching.

    Core Competency #8: Creating Awareness

    September 14, 2015
    7:00 PM - 8:15 PM EST

    *** 1.25 CCEUs ***

    This is your job! This is the core of coaching! Did you know there are 30-40 ways to create awareness? Well, let’s get to it and discover and review some of those ways. Because once you build your toolkit of ways to increase awareness, your clients will invite change more easily…in fact, they may even get excited about it. They will also enthusiastically start generating ways they can move forward. Focus your attention here and you and your clients will reap the benefits of masterful coaching.

    Core Competency #9: Designing Actions

    October 5, 2015
    7:00 PM - 8:15 PM EST

    *** 1.25 CCEUs ***

    You’re coming to the end of the coaching meeting…time is almost over…what do you do now? This is where the awareness that has been discovered is challenged to move into action. This is where clients are designing possible ways to move forward and actually “make their dreams come true”! How do you, as coach, manage the transition from exploring to experimenting or creating next steps? Learn a 3-phase process that will take your clients from dreaming and thinking to doing and achieving what they want.

    Core Competency #11: Managing Progress and Accountability

    December 7, 2015
    7:00 PM - 8:15 PM EST

    *** 1.25 CCEUs ***

    Did you know that the word “accountability” is often disliked or hated by your clients? So why do so many coaches use it, as in the question, “How can I hold you accountable?” And, how do you manage progress over time? You’ll learn how to masterfully work with clients in a positive manner to do both while not having to use any of those words. And as a bonus, you’ll learn how to end each coaching meeting with an authentic and affirming personal message for each client without cheerleading!
