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.

Ethical Considerations in Coaching: A Handy Tool to Manage Ethical Debates in Coaching Situations

Date: September 9, 2021
Time: 12:00pm – 1:30pm + optional 30 minute discussion session at conclusion of the program
Location: Virtual meeting via Zoom

Ethics is a fundamental part of impactful, professional coaching. But ethics is not a single competence, it interweaves all the competencies and highly influences the effectiveness of a coaching process and a coaching relationship. Finding the adequate reaction and intervention might seem simple, however things are not always black and white in real life. Firstly, it is not always obvious that a certain situation has and ethical layer. Secondly, we might find it easy to draw a red line between right and wrong reactions. However, by taking a closer look we can find several options to manage a situation. A more thorough analysis of the context enables you to find a solution which is not only good but well grounded as well.

I see ethical awareness and sensitivity as a skill that can be developed and sharpened. Increased awareness will help you identify ethical dilemmas at an earlier time, will enable you to elaborate several options and react in a more competent manner and with a higher level of integrity. Ethical sensitivity can lead to a higher level of acceptance of different solutions, and as such can contribute to improving the quality and depths of a coaching relationship.

In this interactive workshop you will learn how to detect and handle the ethical aspects of a given situation. Judit will show you a simple decision-making model that can help you gain a deeper understanding of your case and support you to find your best response. You will have the opportunity to work on real-life coaching situations and start to apply this model in your thought process immediately. During the discussions you might discover that integrating different perspectives in your final decision improves the quality of your decisions and moves your position from “avoiding harm” toward the “doing good/better” edge.

Learning Objectives

  • Increase awareness and sensitivity regarding ethical aspect of a coaching process.
  • Get familiar with a handy tool how to consider a situation from different perspectives in order to make a better decision.
  • Experience different decision-making attitudes.
  • Practice how to work with ethical dilemmas in real life cases.
