Conscious and non-conscious meaning-making: How to use neuroscience and psychology in your work with clients 

We are excited to present the executive coach, owner of 15 different coaching credentials Saba Hasanie, PCC. Informed by her extensive professional experience, her doctoral studies in applied neuroscience and psychology, and a panel of global expert coaches from around the globe, Saba will take you on a journey of inquiry that may challenge, evoke and even shift your perspectives on a partnership with clients going forward.

Supporting our clients through sustainable behavior change is a noble goal in coaching, but often one that comes with blurred approaches on how to do this. In this talk, Saba will explore how areas of developmental psychology, applied neuroscience and psychotherapy can come together with the help coaches with a robust in-take process. This in-take process examines conscious and non- conscious meaning-making with clients, but also creates a lasting dynamic between the coach and client that can sustain significant transformation for both.

About the speaker - Saba Hasanie, PCC

Saba has spent two decades focusing on leadership development in North America, U.K., and Asia. A life- long learner, Saba has a BBA, MBA, 15 different coaching credentials and is currently pursuing her Doctoral studies. Saba works with organizations on Executive Coaching and leadership development where she undertakes a unique approach based on developmental psychology, psychotherapy and applied neuroscience that connects a scientific understanding of the brain with the psychological theory of behavioral change.

Saba works primarily with clients in Technology, FMCG, Financial Services, Energy, and Professional Services. Saba also writes and presents on many topics related to leadership and neuroscience including her most recent publication 'Coaching Supervision' published by Routledge (co-author).

A Permanent Resident of Singapore, Saba lives here with her husband and two daughters. Saba has been a friend of the ICF for several years and has also served as Vice-President of the ICF Singapore Chapter, sat on the Global Ethics Committee, and continues to serve on the Selection Panel.

Weaving culture into coaching for creativity, impact and unity

We are glad to present a world-wide known leadership coach who was the first MCC in Europe - Prof. Philippe Rosinski, MCC. 

Philippe is a world authority in executive coaching, team coaching and global leadership development.

Cultural differences of all kinds are often a source of misunderstandings and frustrations. In this workshop, Philippe Rosinski will show how coaches and leaders can improve their creativity and impact by treating cultural differences as a source of richness and as an opportunity to go beyond current cultural limitations.

You will learn about a broad, inclusive and dynamic concept of culture that contrasts with the traditional static and binary view (which tends to perpetuate limiting stereotypes).  You will also get to experience first hand how to navigate the cultural terrain. It facilitates the understanding of salient cultural characteristics for individuals, teams and organizations.

About the speaker - Prof. Philippe Rosinski, MCC 

Philippe helps leaders, teams and organizations deploy their multifaceted potential to achieve sustainable performance and meaningful success. 

The author of “Coaching Across Cultures” and “Global Coaching”, Philippe has pioneered a global approach to leadership and coaching that leverages multiple perspectives for greater creativity, impact, fulfilment and purpose. He has also developed an integrative coaching supervision approach.

Philippe is based in Belgium but enjoys working with clients and partners internationally. He is a professor at the Kenichi Ohmae Graduate School of Business in Tokyo and is regularly invited in other academic institutions. The first European to have been designated Master Certified Coach by the ICF, he holds a Master of Science degree from Stanford University.,, and

We will explore difficult coaching scenarios and how we could work with them through using coaching supervision. 

Scenarios such as contracting, confidentiality, stuck/swirling/chaotic clients, clients not showing up or changing times, clients evoking in us feelings of uncertainty, fear, anger, judgment, not good enough, clients asking for advice, feedback, favours, etc.

Or perhaps we might have self-doubts such as:

· How do we know our blind-spots or our unconscious bias?

· When we are colluding and not challenging, or challenging when we need to be compassionate?

· What is our impact on the client and how do we find out?  

The list can be endless. Human beings are complex. When we move into a close, safe, vulnerable, caring relationship with another person, many of our patterns and our clients’ patterns get activated and sometimes, unbeknownst to us and them.  

The session will show how coaching supervision deals with these situations, the tools and techniques that are used. 

We will be engaging in experiential learning including live demo and role play, so bring your difficult situations to the session. You will realise that you are not alone and many coaches face similar situations.

Learning outcomes:

a. Learn how supervision can be a useful tool to deal with difficult situations

b. Experience and gain insights into how supervision works 

c. Learn from the shared situations and feel supported

Coaching Supervision
What is it; Why is it important; and How is it different from coach mentoring or coaching the coach?

Coaching Supervision is becoming an increasingly important form of professional development for coaches.
While the ICF currently recommends it but does not require its members to receive supervision, the two largest European professional associations, the EMCC and the AC, both require supervision of their members. It may just be a matter of time before the ICF also requires coaching supervision.

Please join us to learn what coaching supervision is and how it is done.

The team of presenters all hold a Diploma in Coaching Supervision from the Coaching Supervision Academy - Dr. Sabreena Andriesz, MCC, Nancy Hughes, MCC, Jose Ferreira-Filho and Hermann Ditzig. Sabreena, Nancy and Hermann are past presidents of the ICF Singapore chapter.

Webinar - Abrasive leaders rub their co-workers the wrong way.

These executives, managers, and professionals (including physicians and attorneys) who engage in interpersonally aggressive behaviour (also known as workplace bullying) exact a high price in terms of both employee emotional distress and costs to the organization. At the same time, employers feel helpless to intervene, especially when dealing with an abrasive leader whose technical expertise is of critical importance to the organization.

Executive coaches are perfectly positioned to offer a solution to workplace bullying through the specialty practice of coaching abrasive leaders.

Dr Laura Crawshaw, Ph.D., BCC will share a coaching model which incorporates action research and concepts derived from evolutionary psychology, emotional intelligence theory, and the Dr Crawshaw’s research. Through case examples and discussion, participants will gain insight into why bosses bully, how to distinguish an abrasive leader from other types (e.g. adequate, irritating, avoidant and aberrant executives) and how to quickly establish a trusting coaching alliance.

The presentation will cover specific techniques to overcome characteristic client defensiveness, develop awareness, and help abrasive leaders relinquish their destructive management styles in favour of interpersonally-productive strategies. Even coaches who elect not to coach abrasive executives will benefit from learning how to defuse client defensiveness encountered with non-abrasive clients.

Please join Dr Crawshaw in learning about this professionally rewarding, specialty coaching niche that offers rapid, permanent solutions for employers struggling to address workplace bullying.

Session outcomes

Participants may expect to learn:

  • How to motivate abrasive leaders to accept coaching
  • Forming the coaching alliance
  • The three phases of the coaching process

About the speaker: Dr Laura Crawshaw, Ph.D., BCC

Dr Crawshaw’s book, Taming the Abrasive Manager: How to End Unnecessary Roughness in the Workplace (Jossey-Bass Management Series), was released in 2007. She has published in the Consulting Psychology Journal on workplace bullying, and her article entitled Coaching Abrasive Leaders: Using Action Research to Reduce Suffering And Increase Productivity In Organizations appeared in the International Journal of Coaching in Organizations.
