Great coaches focus on the whole person – their internal ways of being, mindsets, and their development.
The attitudes and behaviors you see are just indicators of what's going on inside a person. In order to achieve lasting change, we have to coach the whys - the meaning behind the client's choices. The thing is, most people aren't clear on why they do what they do!
If you want to more transformation from your coaching, Coaching the Whole Person is for you.
Here are some of the things you'll learn:
Advanced coaches hear openings to coach what's going on inside the client. We'll show you how to ask for, recognize, and coach the client's internal processing - including emotions.
Emotions? Yes! The ICF mentions coaching emotions 5 times in the Core Competencies. We'll show you how to coach emotional self-awareness in clients, without straying into counseling.
Plenary sessions are filled with teaching by expert coaches such as Dr. Keith Webb, PCC and Dr. Kim Zovak, MCC, along with discussion and skill practice. Practice is done in cohort groups with an Instructor. You'll see coaching demonstrations by Instructors, you'll coach, and be coached - with feedback and discussion. Practice is emphasized so you move from knowing about these skills, to being able to do them.
If you've taken foundational coaching training, step up the results of your coaching with Coaching the Whole Person.
