Generating positive momentum and championing change from the inside and out is what allows your clients accomplish their goals. This level of coaching is rewarding on its own. But that’s just the beginning of the coaching journey...

Masterful coaches know: we are the instrument of change. According to relational neuroscience, your presence is a major influencer on your clients’ capacity to successfully make the changes they seek. Who you are in the moment with your client makes the difference, regardless of the coaching method you employ. Most clients never remember what they did during a coaching session. But they do remember how they felt about themselves in your presence. Imagine being that inner champion! Your voice and impact can live within your client’s mind years after the coaching engagement.

A Co-evolutionary Conversation shifts the coach’s focus from “changing or helping others” to “contributing their best toward the client’s present needs.” During our interactive exploration of Co-evolutionary Conversations, you will explore this ground-breaking method. Learn how to grow yourself as a coach, and your clients, within every conversation.

Co-evolutionary Conversations take you and your relationships (both coaching and personal) to an entirely new level of human excellence and empowerment. As a leader, influencer, and coach, you hold the honourable opportunity to be a role model toward a new way of being with others. Learn how to cultivate a generative learning space where you can co-evolve and inspire others to cultivate a mindset of curiosity and growth through authentic connection.

Learning Outcomes

  • Identify your core “natural” coaching communication style to recognize what aspect of you drives your coaching style.
  • Learn and practice the 5 Elements of a Co-evolutionary Conversation to get a felt sense of the method in action.
  • Recognize what your client truly needs and respond in the moment by bringing your best self into the conversation.
  • Transform your own client-experiences and other important relationships through a new lens, language, and way of being.

The notion of being not good enough and the stress of feeling like you’re just about to get found out can be damaging and draining. The sense that at some point you're going to be exposed as a faker can be crippling to achievement and can cause anxiety and overwork. For those who experience this often it can lead to depression and disengagement.

While there's been much discussion about the 'imposter syndrome' delivered via social media channels recently, much of what is presented clouds the reality and complexity of the experience. More correctly called the impostor phenomenon (IP), the experience is common and despite a recent increase in publicity about the ‘imposter syndrome’, there’s a good deal of misunderstanding about the experience.

This session aims to identify what the impostor phenomenon actually is, where it comes from and why it’s so difficult to diminish. Exploring the social consequences and influences, this session situates IP as a suite of behaviours and thought patterns that are socially learned and therefore can be unlearned and offers some basic tools to allow coaches to help people examine and diminish their own experience of IP.

Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the reality of the impostor phenomenon
  • Determine the antecedents and social cues that 'feed' impostor feelings
  • Explore coaching responses to impostor experiences in others
