The Science of the Art of Coaching Programme is designed for executive coaches, practitioners or human resource/ talent leaders interested in applying knowledge from modern neuroscience and interpersonal biology to enhance coaching conversations and outcomes. It introduces participants to modern neuroscientific understandings about how the brain works; how energy is created and directed; what the emotional bases of motivation are: how an appreciation of the interpersonal neurobiology of the coaching encounter can be managed in pursuit of the client’s coaching goals; and what the neurobiological bases of stress are and how stress can be managed epigenetically through perceptual shifts and awareness. Over the ten months of the Programme it combines face-to-face teaching of knowledge and simulation training with case material webinars.

The mission of the Happiness Studies Academy is to lead the happiness revolution, by educating leaders who are themselves dedicated to personal, interpersonal, and communal flourishing.

To realize our mission, we at HSA take a wholistic, interdisciplinary approach to teaching happiness—first in the way we define happiness, and second in the way we teach it. We define happiness as the experience of wholeperson wellbeing, or in short, the experience of wholebeing. The five elements essential to a life of wholebeing are:

Spiritual
Physical
Intellectual
Relational
Emotional

Taken together, these elements make up the acronym SPIRE, and indeed they inspire all of our programs—from our introductory lectures on happiness to the one-year Certificate in Happiness Studies.

To better understand, pursue, and attain wholebeing, it is not enough to explore each of the SPIRE elements through the lens of a single field—be it psychology or philosophy. Instead, we need to take an interdisciplinary approach, turn to psychology and philosophy, as well as to literature, history, economics, theology, biology and other disciplines. This interdisciplinary approach is aligned with our general wholistic approach—one that bridges rather than divides, unites rather than separates. We bridge and unite between:

Theory and practice
Reflection and action
Common sense and complexity
Ancient wisdom and modern research
The humanistic and the scientific
East and West
The rich content coupled with the unique way in which the content is taught, informs about the meaning and significance of happiness, as well as transforms and creates a better world.

Event Description:

This fully immersive program galvanizes you to create a reliable and sustainable practice of listening deeply. It promises to cultivate openness and awareness that will expand self-discovery and positively impact the way you interact with colleagues and clients.

Why Authentic Listening?

DEEP LISTENING is critical to coaching success, yet surveys reveal that many coaches seem confused about what it involves, or how to sustain it. And they don’t know what they don’t know!

COACHES: Open your mind, deepen your practice. Fully experience and learn this proven Listening Approach to transform your ability to receive your clients at a deep level. This is crucial for Creating Awareness!

COACH TRAINERS: Empower your students to transcend rote Active Listening training. Developing your students in the art of deep listening is a gift that will enable them to open possibilities with their clients.

Create a Reliable Listening Practice

Most coaches have been taught to “Listen beyond the words.” What does this even mean? What do coaches need to authentically connect with their client’s concerns? Consider these listening aspects:

• What is our intention? Where is our attention?
• How do we identify, understand and accept the impediments that undermine our listening?
• What do we practice, and how can we develop a reliable and sustainable habit?
• How do we train others to engage in deep listening?

This Certificate Program will accept 25 students, designed specifically for two groups:
— Experienced Coaches with 200 paid hours of coaching experience from at least 10 clients.
— Coach Trainers, program managers, and mentor-coaches involved in training and developing coaches.

How can coaches work with the anxious and depressed, embracing the dark as well as the light?
Are coaches prepared for the rise of millennial, women leaders and ‘Third Acters’?

Diamond Leadership: Certification in Power IntelligenceⓇ

Event Start Date: Thursday, July 04, 2019 – 9:00 AM

Event End Date: Saturday, July 06, 2019 – 5:00 PM

Event Description:

The Certification in Power Intelligence® seminar trains and certifies coaches, consultants, HR professionals, and anyone working with leaders to administer the Diamond Power Index®, a multi-rater and self-rater assessment that assists leaders in developing their effective use of power. The entire three-day training covers the background and research underlying the instrument, how to administer the test, how to interpret scores and reports, how to coach and train leaders and leadership teams, as well as marketing support for using it in organizations. Successful completion of the seminar will result in certification for using the assessment.

Module 1 is a day and a half introduction for those who want to learn how to coach and train leaders on their use of power, and work with issues related to power in organizations. It covers the background theory, addresses main behaviors related to power use and how to work with them, and presents methods for coaching and training. It does not include how to administer the assessment, interpret reports, and does not lead to certification in the assessment. If you are in attendance at Module 1, and decide you’d like to stay for the full certification, you can simply pay the difference and continue with that seminar, or attend one later in the year at another location. The schedule for each day is 9:00am-5:00pm.

Speaker: Tammy Turner

Event Description:

Emerging Issues for Coaching with Tammy Turner, MCC

As a coach, human capital professional or leader, working with groups and teams is touted to be the panacea for disruption. On the surface, the trend toward group and team coaching seems to be both a natural progression in the coaching industry as well as a more cost effective and impactful way for organisations to embed collaborative leadership, engage stakeholders and create innovation.

Yet are we as coaches prepared? And are organisations clear about what is required for team coaching to sustainably enhance their cultures? If team coaching is more impactful, what is the future for individual coaching? How will individual and multiple person coaching shape the organisational landscape of the future? How do you know if what you’re prepared to offer a client is what they want or need? What training do you need to develop yourself as a professional coach, internal leader and/or HR Professional?

This thought-provoking session will attempt to answer these questions to better understand what may be necessary to deliver coaching in a complex global economy and plan for a sustainable future in the coaching industry.
Key Learning Takeaways

Understand what competencies, capabilities and capacities need to be developed to deliver coaching for a sustainable career in the coaching industry, especially in working with teams/groups and organisations – Competencies: 1, 2, 5
Understand what clients will be looking for in coaches and how to dialogue with them to ensure a successful delivery – Competencies: 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8
