Webinar Topic: Relational Presence for Coaches

8:00 pm to 9:30 pm
ICF Singapore Members: Free (Please log in to register for the webinar)
CCEUs: Core Competencies 1.5

Focusing on four ICF core competencies, this webinar equips coaches with the core elements from the Relational Presence methodology to increase their coaching effectiveness by expanding their capacity for presence.

In this 90 minute webinar held by videoconference, coaches will learn a way of “being with” their clients that heightens trust and intimacy, enriches coaching presence, deepens active listening, and fine tunes direct communication.

Coaches will leave this webinar with a fresh take on their way of being with clients that supports the ICF Core Competencies. Coaches will be trained to use their newly expanded capacity for presence in full service of their clients.

Demonstrations will be provided with volunteers so that all attendees will have direct experience in seeing how presence affects the relationship.

Please refer to the ICF article on this subject at: https://coachfederation.org/blog/a-way-to-be

Learning Outcome:

  1. Establishing trust, and knowing what trust is. How do you know when you have it?
  2. How do you know you have presence? Learn to stay open, confident, and flexible. Discover where you are most present and where you can improve.
  3. How do you stay focused on your client? Learn to listen for meaning, and how to hold back from your own interpretations of what's being said.
  4. Learn how relational presence affects all of the coaching competencies, and gain 3 key skills to use for success with every coaching encounter.

 

About the speakers:

TinaMertel Facilitators Tina Mertel and Pam Noda are seasoned trainers of Relational Presence (also known as Speaking Circles®).

Each of them regularly facilitates Relational Presence workshops both for the public and in organizations. Both use Relational Presence in coaching sessions with their clients.

Experience has taught them that being in Relational Presence with clients is the ground of coaching wisdom.

From there emerges a coach’s sense of what to say when and which skills/tools to apply. From there emerges a client’s inner knowing and call to action.
This combination is what yields inspired coaching from the coach and inspired results for the client.

Coaching in Three Dimensions

CCEU 
1.5 (Core competencies:1, Resource Development: 0.5)

Traditional approaches to coaching fail to account for the way organisations really work. Attempts to enhance leadership capability one person at a time, through private one-to-one coaching sessions, are unlikely to succeed by themselves. In this session Dr Paul Lawrence will outline a more connected, systemic approach, aligning coaching with the realities and challenges of organisations operating in an ever more complex world. The session will be practical and pragmatic, sharing some spec
f ic tools and approaches coaches can adopt immediately into their practice.

Learning Outcome: 

  1. Specific tools and approaches, consistent with a systemic approach to coaching
  2. An understanding of dialogue, and what a dialogic approach to coaching looks like
  3. New and practical on-going professional development
