Coaching the Whole Person

(15 ICF training hours)

Advanced Coaching Skills for Transformation

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 more transformation from your coaching, Coaching the Whole Person is for you.

Here are some of the things you'll learn:

  • Our 10-part Why-We-Do-What-We-Do Framework.
  • Common coaching practices that limit your effectiveness.
  • 5 tools to listen for, recognize, and coach internal beliefs and perspectives.
  • How to help clients break the Reaction Cycle and gain control of their responses.
  • A process to harness the powerful forces of emotions.
  • How to coach emotional self-awareness.
  • The ICF PCC Markers and how to coach at a PCC level.

You Can't Practice What You Don't Hear

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.

Learning Through Instruction & Practice

Sessions are led by Dr. Keith Webb, PCC and include discussion and skill practice. 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.
