Race Matters in Coaching

Hosted by the ICF Washington State Chapter

This mini-workshop intends to raise awareness about obstacles that keep us from having meaningful race-related conversations in coaching spaces. The workshop offers an introduction to strategies and an opportunity to engage in dialogue with the aim of increasing equity and inclusion in the coaching community. You will leave this workshop with a better awareness of what stops you from engaging in conversations about race, equity, inclusion, and related topics.

The outcome of this workshop will be a beginning awareness of what stops you from speaking so that you can make more conscious choices about where and how you want to have conversations about race, diversity, and the like. We aim to support self-exploration that lays the foundation for transformative change.

CCEUs: 1.5 in Resource Development

Catalytic Coaching – The Promise and Power of the Thinking Environment®

Thinking Environment Coaching has been described by coaching experts as one of the most effective client-centered coaching methods on the market. Like many coaching methods, the purpose is for the client to think.

Unlike many coaching methods, the purpose of the Thinking Environment process is for clients to think – for themselves. For themselves changes everything. For themselves requires new expertise.

Given that the quality of everything our clients do depends on the quality of the thinking they do first, generating a client’s finest independent thinking is the singular purpose of this coaching approach.

In this introductory session, Hazel demonstrates a profoundly different way to be in partnership that achieves this quality of thinking clients need from us, to be at their best; to thrive. It adds value to your existing toolkit of expertise. With practice and discipline, it transforms the quality of all your coaching conversations, client relationships and results.

You will discover:

  • What a Thinking Environment is, why it matters, and how to create it.
  • 4 game-changing behaviors that create the conditions for your clients to thrive.
  • 1 simple, yet loaded, promise and a few liberating questions.

This is a radically different and relational way of being with clients that allows them to go beyond dependence on the coach’s views, guidance, and analysis. It is paradoxically simple and complex, easeful, and dynamic.

About Hazel Morley, Time to Think Consultant (Coach, Facilitator & Teacher)
For more than 30 years I’ve been in the people business as a Trainer, Facilitator and Coach.
In 2003 I discovered Nancy Kline’s work “Time to Think” and enrolled in a ‘Thinking Partnership’ program that led to qualifying as a Consultant, Facilitator and Coach. What a gift it was, to learn how to listen to ignite the human mind and unleash its potential.

Since then, most of my bold and life-changing decisions have emerged from my being in a Thinking Environment®. One of the most significant was emigrating from England to beautiful British Columbia in 2009.

As one of 20 Time to Think global Faculty, I feel privileged to teach others how to produce independent thinking in their organizations, teams, and lives. I’d love to share it with you.

ICF Arizona: Book Study 2023 Q3 – The Sum of Us

Hosted by ICF Arizona
Co-Facilitated by Elle Cronin & Lori Raggio

The Book Study meets on Tuesday evenings at 7pm (New Mexico time / MT) via Zoom for 1 hour. The meetings will be facilitated by our co-facilitators.

Join us to increase your knowledge and enjoy lively discussions with a small group of fellow coaches.

One of today’s most insightful and influential thinkers offers a powerful exploration of inequality and the lesson that generations of Americans have failed to learn: Racism has a cost for everyone—not just for people of color.

WINNER OF THE PORCHLIGHT BUSINESS BOOK AWARD ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR: Time, The Washington Post, St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Ms. magazine, BookRiot, Library Journal

This is the book I’ve been waiting for.”
Ibram X. Kendi, #1 New York Times bestselling author of How to Be an Antiracist 

Heather McGhee’s specialty is the American economy—and the mystery of why it so often fails the American public. From the financial crisis of 2008 to rising student debt to collapsing public infrastructure, she found a root problem: racism in our politics and policy making. But not just in the most obvious indignities for people of color. Racism has costs for white people, too. It is the common denominator of our most vexing public problems, the core dysfunction of our democracy and constitutive of the spiritual and moral crises that grip us all. But how did this happen? And is there a way out?

McGhee embarks on a deeply personal journey across the country from Maine to Mississippi to California, tallying what we lose when we buy into the zero-sum paradigm—the idea that progress for some of us must come at the expense of others. Along the way, she meets white people who confide in her about losing their homes, their dreams, and their shot at better jobs to the toxic mix of American racism and greed. This is the story of how public goods in this country—from parks and pools to functioning schools—have become private luxuries; of how unions collapsed, wages stagnated, and inequality increased; and of how this country, unique among the world’s advanced economies, has thwarted universal healthcare.

But in unlikely places of worship and work, McGhee finds proof of what she calls the Solidarity Dividend: the benefits we gain when people come together across race to accomplish what we simply can’t do on our own. The Sum of Us is not only a brilliant analysis of how we arrived here but also a heartfelt message, delivered with startling empathy, from a black woman to a multiracial America. It leaves us with a new vision for a future in which we finally realize that life can be more than a zero-sum game.
