How to Shift to Coaching the Person and Why This is So Important Now

We all get stuck in our stories, especially when we experience strong emotions. This limits us from seeing possibilities and alternative solutions to what we have tried before. The neuroscientists say that there must be something external to us, outside of our minds and bodies, that disrupt our thought patterns in order can change them. When someone else adeptly challenges your reasoning and dares to ask you a question that penetrates your protective frames, there is what Marcel Proust called, an “upheaval of thought.” This turbulence can crack open the stories, allowing you to see yourself and the world around you in new ways. You will then form new stories, but the process can repeat many times even in one day.

Coaches are trained to be external thought disruptors! We coach people to see beyond the frames of their stories as a thinking partner knowing they are creative, resourceful, and whole.. They instantly see themselves and the world around them in new way. This is the gift of coaching and what differentiates us from consulting and therapy.

This session will give you the words to easily define what we do as coaches, and show you how to shift people from being stuck in their problems and stories by focusing on what they REALLY want to achieve.

Coaches don’t focus on helping people feel better; we coach so they see better!

  • Be able to articulate what you do as a coach and the impact you offer your clients.
  • Understand the value of the “coaching agreement” and how this competency can shift from coaching the problem to coaching the person.
  • Learn the essential elements for embodying a coaching mindset while in the process no matter what transpires.
  • Watch this process demonstrated and then further explore the process of coaching after the demo is competed.
