Niche in a Nutshell Tickets
Jan 19 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
Niche in a Nutshell

So many Coaches and Entrepreneurs struggle with the whole concept of “to niche or not to niche?”.  We can always think of a few examples of successful coaches who don’t have a clearly defined market niche (which gives us evidence to stay niche-less).  However, when we look at the thriving coaches that are MOST successful, they almost always have a clear Niche and Ideal Client.  This webinar will help demystify the concept of Niche and help overcome common fears and misconceptions that hold coaches back from taking the deep dive into a niched coaching practice.  In this webinar you will learn:

The three aspects of a True Niche
The common misconceptions about Niche and what’s really true
The benefits to you AND your clients to choosing a niche
How to begin your exploration of potential niches so you choose a niche where you AND your potential clients are “Leaning In”
How to establish credibility in a newly chosen market niche

Mindfulness and Character Strengths in Coaching Tickets

Mindfulness and Character Strengths in Coaching

Event Start Date: Monday, January 23, 2017 12:00 PM
Event End Date: Friday, March 17, 2017 12:00 PM
 
Additional dates and times for this event:
Weekly live webinars are held on Wednesdays during the course from 12:00 – 1:30 pm ET. These webinars are recorded for those unable to attend live.
 
Weaving the ancient, research-based practice of mindfulness with character strength interventions produces powerful coaching outcomes. This 8-week course combines both—to facilitate self-knowledge, deepen the coaching relationship, and build the coach’s toolkit for positive change.
Coaches are tasked with getting to know their clients on a personal level and cultivating a relationship of trust and honesty. Understanding a client’s character strengths—the core positive aspects of their personality—is a crucial step. Character strengths provide a common language for the coach and client to use when building the relationship and working together on self-efficacy and goal attainment.
Mindfulness is a vehicle for helping coaching clients understand and use their strengths. It’s defined by scientists as the self-regulation of attention with an attitude of curiosity, openness, and acceptance.
Ultimately, the mindful approach to character strengths in coaching serves and nourishes both the coach and the person being coached. As you create a strengths-based practice and apply these concepts and practices to boost your self-awareness, self-care, and well-being—personally and professionally—you become more confident, competent, and comfortable in your own skin as a coach.

Freedom to Fight: The Essential Skills for Transforming Conflict with Confidence Tickets
Jan 24 @ 12:00 pm

Event Start Date: January 24, 2017 12:00 PM
Event End Date: March 14, 2017 1:20 PM
 
Additional dates and times for this event:
This 75 minute weekly course runs for 8 weeks, each Tuesday from January 24 through March 14 at 12 pm MT.
 
Join Freedom to Fight—an 8 week online skills training led by award-winning mediator, conflict resolution expert, and author, Diane Musho Hamilton
 
The critical, high-level skills for transforming conflict are desperately needed in our world today—and they apply equally across a wide range of contexts.
 
If you are committed to creating thriving culture in your organization or community (and especially if you are a leader at any level), you will encounter conflict. The way you encounter it will set an example—communicating to others whether your team or organization is a safe place to disagree, or whether conflict should be avoided at all costs.
 
If you are working with hot and contentious issues in culture, convening dialogues, building community and catalyzing action, your ability to work with the intelligence of conflict may be one of the most important skills you can invest in. Entrenched conflicts that continue to tear at our social fabric are crying out for better, more integrative, and more creative responses.
 
But let’s not fool ourselves either—the skills for transforming conflict are as critical in the private, personal moments of our lives as they are on the big stages of our public, political, and professional lives.
 
When we raise our children with a fearlessness about what it means to differ, we are evolving the future landscape of our world.
 
When we meet conflicts with our partners, lovers, and friends with a confident curiosity and a willingness to learn, we are evolving culture here and now.
 
When we listen to the “others” that seem to be threatening what we care most about with an ear that asks “what is the intelligence in this perspective?” we are embodying a stance of radical inclusion, peacemaking, and possibility.
 
In this live, online training, you will learn frameworks for intervention, and practice skill building with the support of live teaching, coaching, peer practice, and ongoing feedback. You will develop:
Insight — Learn to see inside the subtle, hidden dynamics of conflict.
 
Choice — Expand the options and tools you have available in your response to conflict.
 
Freedom — Access grounded presence and clarity, no matter how “hot” things get.
 
Creativity — Reflect the intelligence of conflict in ways that bring energy and possibility.
 
Wisdom — See the bigger picture and invite others into it.
 
Efficacy — Learn to cut through unspoken and entrenched dynamics.
 
Confidence — Relax and trust yourself in the presence of conflict.

This program was developed by Susan Piver, founder of the Open Heart Project, and Jenna Hollenstein, a meditation guide and nutrition therapist. It is specifically designed to support those who wish to offer meditation instruction within a professional context. It will help coaches, yoga teachers, therapists, counselors, managers, and others who wish to bring mindfulness to their clients, students, patients, colleagues, and so on.
 
The Open Heart Project is proud to offer its Meditation Instructor Certification Program. This online program is specifically constructed to serve those who work one-to-one or in small groups with clients or patients.
 
Our program has been recognized by the International Coaching Federation. Federation members may claim 28 CEUS (14 core and 14 resource development) toward maintaining their coaching certification.
 
Mindfulness meditation is now a cultural phenomenon. It may appear that teaching meditation is a simple thing—what is so complicated about sitting down and breathing?! However, 2600 years of mindfulness-awareness practice has shown us that though the technique is simple, the results it produces are not. A responsible meditation teacher has some knowledge of how to guide others as their practice takes root.
 
Over this nine-week program, participants will gain the necessary skills to teach the meditation technique clearly, answer the most frequently asked questions with confidence, and gain insight into the teacher-student relationship.
 
This program is not about becoming a spiritual guide, but about learning to impart this ancient technique responsibly, kindly, and skillfully.
 
CURRICULUM
 
-28 hours of class time over 9 weeks and a commitment to practice meditation daily
-Classes will be held on nine consecutive Tuesdays from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm ET. Each class is recorded
-There will be eight mid-week check-ins on Fridays from 2:30 pm – 3:00 pm ET. This is a chance to discuss your practice, share reflections about the homework, and ask questions
-Attendance at all classes and check-ins is MANDATORY. If you foresee a conflict, please email us to discuss before completing an application
 
NOTE
Successful completion of this program is predicated on the following:
-Full attendance at all classes and check-ins
-Completion of homework and exercises
-Honest feedback from your fellow classmates (you will be giving each other meditation instruction)
-An okay from either Susan or Jenna following a 1:1 meeting to be held between weeks 8 and 9
-The ability to answer the most frequently asked questions, to be tested during week 9
 
Please be advised that graduation is not guaranteed. Full attendance and completion of assignments are not the sole measures. We want to make sure you are really ready to go out and offer this practice from your heart, in your own way, but with full respect for the ancient tradition. We will do everything in our power to help you!

Jan 26 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm
Coaching Brilliant and Abrasive Leaders @ Executive & Leadership Coaching Community of Practice

Research shows poor leadership is the biggest reason employees leave a company (Gallup study). Brilliant and abrasive leaders can incur significant costs for their organization including higher turnover, talent attrition, absence of potential successors, lawsuits, and absenteeism. Fortunately, one can avoid these problems by addressing a leader’s toxicity before it spreads throughout the organization.

Join the Executive and Leadership Coaching Community of Practice for this interactive webinar with Dr. Katrina Burrus, MCC. Dr. Burrus will be sharing how coaches can develop competencies within an organization and with its leaders in order to help reduce suffering in the workplace, improve the cultural climate, and increase overall effectiveness.

Furthermore, participants of this webinar will learn how to:

  • Identify abrasive behaviors in the workplace, as well as, protect oneself from the insidious effect of incivility.
  • Distinguish a demanding leader from an abrasive one so to better understand when and how a leader can drain your energy.
  • Recognize the abrasive leader’s fears and how to better address them.
  • Apply specific approaches and tools to support the organization in reducing the leader’s toxicity and as a result, suffering at the workplace.

*This webinar will take place on Thursday, January 26th at 11:00am ET; to register, use the GoToWebinar link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/9166216503812031491.

Event Start Date: Tuesday, January 31, 2017 4:00 PM

In this 6 week teleclass I will teach 5 basic distinctions that I use in my coaching, with practical application to your own somatic presence and your current client or management work. You’ll learn how to apply what we’re discussing to your work with clients immediately. We’ll spend one week on each distinction and one week integrating all of them. I will provide examples of questions I ask clients to help increase their somatic sensibility. In addition, I will review a sampling of practices I give my clients to open places where they are contracted or constricted, so they have more freedom and can make more effective choices.
 
Come to the class with your questions – we will do some coaching in real time. Where do you see you or your clients stuck? What have you/they tried? Learn what else might help.
 
What can you expect from the teleclass?
 
Somatic distinctions you can use to move yourself and your clients forward

About Coaching Out of the Box®
 
Coaching Out of the Box® was born from one big question. “What if EVERYONE had coaching skills?” Since 2008 our offerings have evolved to serve that vision from those wishing to achieve ICF Certification, those who want to be more coach-like in the way they work and live or to those who are re-certifying and need to demonstrate what they have done for their professional development. We offer our programs either “individually” with certain prerequisites or via our Fast Track to ICF Certification.

Event Start Date: Saturday, February 04, 2017 9:00 AM
Event End Date: Thursday, February 09, 2017 4:30 PM
 
Enneagram Intensive 2.0 is part of our Enneagram Narrative Core Program. This foundational course provides a deep, transformative experience of the Enneagram, focusing on the integration of psychology, spirituality and somatics. The program offers a full examination of the nine distinct type structures, with expanded attention to the spiritual and somatic aspects of each type. Another key element of the training is how the types show up in relationships.
The first three days include refinements to the basic proposition (psychology), the basics of self-reflection (spirituality), and body awareness (somatics). The final three days are devoted to your path of self-development. You will learn the defense systems for each Enneagram type and how to work with your own patterns of reactivity. You also will be encouraged to find the aspects of your own type that offer opportunities for growth and transformation. We will explore the following questions:
 
How do I experience the cognitive-emotional pattern of my type?
Why is seeing that pattern important in my life?
Why is being receptive important?
Why does that help me access my spirituality?
Why is feeling my body important?
How does that help me live with more consciousness?
 
Enneagram Intensive 2.0 includes two rounds of type panels in the Narrative Tradition, an introduction to the Universal Growth Process, guided interactions related to current relationship issues, pre-recorded meditations by Helen Palmer, short didactics, self-observation and movement practices, and small-group exercises.
