Sustainable Leadership: How to help leaders in a VUCA-world @ Team and Work Group Coaching Community of Practice

Event Description: Sustainable Leadership: How to help leaders in a VUCA-world

Join the Team and Work Group Coaching Community of Practice with author David Ducheyne as he reviews the challenges leaders face today, based on his book “Sustainable Leadership: How to lead in a VUCA-world”.

To him, leadership is based on character and if the individual wants to be sustainable, he/she must remain true to themselves. But, often there is so much pressure coming from the context that character can have the tendency to erode. David will discuss how this happens and how we, as coaches, can prevent it. Additionally, he will share some frameworks that will help both emerging and established leaders reflect on their current and future leadership styles. These can be used as coaching tools to help clients find a context in which their character can be part of the solution for successful leadership.

Start date / time: October 6, 2016 7:30pm
End date / time: October 27, 2016 9:00pm

6 CCEU Resolutionizing Conflict flyer 2016
This course is a deep dive on conflict methodologies starting with the definition of conflict, types and sources as well as ways to revolutionize your clients’ conflict resolution techniques.  Conflict is defined as any situation in which incompatible goals, attitudes, emotions, or behaviors lead to a disagreement or opposition between two or more individuals.  Examine conflict as two types defined as functional and dysfunctional. Functional conflict results in positive benefits to individuals, a group, or the organization. This type of good conflict can raise awareness of important issues so that they can be addressed. Good conflict carries the potential to be a win-win.   Dysfunctional conflict, on the other hand, can damage group cohesion, promote hostilities among those involved, and create an overall negative experience for all associated with the situation. Examine conflict as two sources defined as internal and external.

Within the course we cover the following ICF core competencies:  Establishing Trust and Intimacy, Active Listening, Powerful Questioning, Direct Communication, Creating Awareness, Designing Actions, Planning & Goal Setting, Managing Progress and Accountability.

Each class module builds upon the previous one, and requires each participant to coach and be coached through the revolutionary process of resolving conflicts in 4 steps:

1. Determining the type and nature of conflict- functional/dysfunctional and internal/external
2. Identifying the expectation breakdown
3. Evaluating consequences
4. Breaking the cycle of escalation

We invite you to BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO C

Call Forth Your Inner Leader, and leave with Courage, Competence and Confidence to create conscious conversations with the people surrounding you.

As the markets change, industries consolidate and our world seeks answers to many things, new conversations emerge, creating a cultural shift, bringing new language, work styles, and behaviors to the work environment.

Our keynote speaker, Jim Milner, will propose [or present] that incorporation of a coaching framework within the communication process results in a strategic communication and becomes the key for stronger conversations.

You will leave this session understanding and able to use:

1. The principles and the neuroscience of leadership.
2.  The strategies embodied within the three overarching leadership categories-
Autocratic, Democratic and Laissez-faire – that incorporate the practical use of
types, traits, and tendencies.
3. The strategies and language to engaging in critical dialogue across the sectors to
co-create conscious conversations, connections, collaborations… (The C’s).

Be the Change You Want to C?

Coaching High Performing Teams Flyer 2016

Team coaching requires specially developed acumen that transcends individual coaching.  Working with a wide variety of participants who bring varying degrees of emotional intelligence to each session requires keen coaching awareness around group and team characteristics.

Increase your core competencies in group and team dynamics with this advanced continuing coach education course from The Elevar Group.  This course puts resource materials from the textbook In Mixed Company – Communication in Small Groups and Teams by J. Dan Rothwell (used with permission from Cengage Learning), and other trusted sources, into a practical coaching context.  Class discussions, exercises, and homework focus on learning to use key skills with flexibility and proper knowledge of appropriateness for a given context.

Learn how teams differ from groups, the distinctions between empowered and high performing teams, factors that affect teams and how change impacts them. Use and apply this knowledge in specific coaching contexts with other experienced coaches sharing their real life experiences.

Recognizing unique structures and dynamics that exist in groups and teams and how that shapes individual perceptions and influences decision making is essential in mastering the ICF core competencies of:

• establishing trust and intimacy
• co-creating the relationship
• direct communication
• creating awareness
• designing action
• planning and goal setting
• managing progress and accountability

Each class module builds upon the previous one, and requires each participant to select a case study team or group they have worked with in the past or are currently working with (or participating in) to use as a practice resource for role-playing coaching conversations, discussion and analysis.

We have found that an affirmative focus works for the coach/client relationship, for youth and adults; at work, school and home; for teams, parents, and in our communities.

Advanced Coaching Ireland 2016

A 4-day ICF-approved certificate program open only to past participants of “Coaching with the Enneagram 1.0” or others with in-depth Enneagram-coaching knowledge and skills.

Based on the Coaching Circle, this program is designed to enable those who coach others to coach the whole person in context. The overarching use of the Coaching Circle is for coaches to continuously employ the four core modes of coaching behavior: Listening, Questioning, Feedback, and Challenging. These four areas are utilized throughout the program, focusing first on the client as a whole person with integrated systems of thought patterns, feeling responses, and behavioral habits.

The program also helps coaches focus on how to coach clients to increase emotional literacy, creating awareness, openness, and expansiveness in clients of the nine enneatypes in order to strengthen and enrich their development, as well as provides coaches the opportunity to learn how to work somatically with clients of each type and how to create dramatic release and change. Throughout the program, coaches engage in a variety of coaching practices with feedback from both clients and observers.

Upon completion of the program, participants receive a coaching certificate from The Enneagram in Business (41 ICF ACSTH).

  • How refunds fit into the world of ethics and reference the applicable sections of the code,
  • Acceptable and clear wording in coaching agreements on refunds that can be distributed amongst coaches, and
  • Some sticky client situations to create further clarity.

shift positive 360 certification, Minneapolis, MN

Event Start Date: Thursday, October 13, 2016 8:00 AM
Event End Date: Friday, October 14, 2016 5:00 PM

 
shift_ 360_info_oct2016
 
The shift positive 360 is a narrative 360 approach used by executive and leadership coaches. This approach is grounded in positive psychology and focuses on engaging the client’s “people system” throughout the change process. Positive psychology is the study of human strengths and well-being which employs proven methods to promote the flourishing of people, organizations, and communities. The client’s “people system” is the group of people who participate in the 360 and become allies in the client’s change.
 
A two-day certification is available with two Hudson Institute PCC level coaches, Pete Berridge and Jen Ostrich. Pete combines 30 years of HR and
leadership experience with a Masters in Applied Positive Psychology and created the shift+ 360 process five years ago to use in his own executive coaching practice. Jen brings 15 years of navigating people systems
across the advertising industry to create positive results, and has used the shift+ 360 exclusively for the last three years in her leadership coaching business. Together they have a collection of positive outcomes and have co-created an empowering two-day training following their mission of changing the way we gather and give feedback.
In this training you will:
– Get grounded in key Positive Psychology concepts
– Feel confident in using the shift+ 360
– Be capable in garnering allies for your client
– Challenge the traditional 360 approach of confidentiality
– Be comfortable sharing feedback with your client
– Learn how to involve the people system over the entire engagement
– Understand how this approach actually leads to more clients
– Experience a mindshift for you – coach

Personal Groundwork for Coaching Program™ by Coaching Out of the Box®

Start date / time: October 17, 2016 3:00pm
End date / time: December 5, 2016 4:30pm

When coaching, the only place a coachee should be lead by a coach is into deeper discovery about themselves and their situation. However, leading a coachee into the coach’s way of thinking is strictly off limits. The chasm between the two is often a murky and gray area for many coaches. How do you bring someone into new awareness and discovery without tossing something out that comes from the coach’s line of thinking?

For years, the Personal Groundwork for Coaching Program™ by Coaching Out of the Box® has been used by coaches to do just that. It allows coaches to highlight and explore areas that are often at the source of where a coachee becomes stuck, self-defeating or unmotivated. The Personal Groundwork for Coaching Assessment™ and accompanying workbook is a widely used tool to help coaches move their clients past daily symptoms and into the deeper source of what gets in their way when moving toward bigger and broader goals.

This 8-week program is delivered In one of our state-of-the-art virtual classrooms that each participant can access via the comfort of their home or office.

Key Skills Covered

• How to use the Personal Groundwork for Coaching Assessment™ with coachees.
• Better ways to coach for sustainable change by getting to the root source.
• How to bring about awareness of where a coachee may be kidding themselves or are blind to seeing.
• Ways to identify resistance to change – what to listen for and questions to ask.
• How to coach someone who is playing a role(s) that no longer serves them.
• Coaching someone from being driven to being pulled forward by core values.
• How to identify what your coachee is passionate about and how to step into that.

To further embed the learning, you will work (outside of the classroom) with a different learning partner to coach one another around the concepts covered in the class.

The Personal Groundwork for Coaching Program™ has been a foundational piece of learning for several years at the Royal Roads University Executive Coaching program and the University of Texas Executive Coaching program.

Upcoming Program Dates

Mondays from 12:00-1:30 pm Pacific / 3:00-4:30 pm Eastern – October 17, 24, 31, November 7, 14, 21, 28, and December 5, 2016.
