1.5 Core CCE
Subjects covered: The core message of this presentation is focused on Coaching Presence and the “ways of being” you need to possess or foster to be successful as a coach ... a coach that exemplifies Ethical Practice. Your presence impacts every aspect of coaching … who you be in the actual coaching engagement AND who you be in the world.
In fact, this area of competency is so critical that the ICF created a new competency in our updated model: Embodying A Coaching Mindset. This presentation addresses the characteristics and ways of being that are the essence of Embodying A Coaching Mindset … in your coaching sessions … in your marketing efforts … and throughout your life. We’ll look at the top three characteristics that are the essence of Maintaining Presence and cause you to Cultivate Trust and Safety with the Client.
The program will enhance, specifically, the following ICF Core Competencies:
Demonstrates Ethical Practice and Embodying a Coaching Mindset: Ethical Practice includes your ability to demonstrate personal integrity and honesty in all your interactions with clients, sponsors and relevant stakeholders. This presentation focuses on the characteristics, qualities, and ways of being that you must foster in yourself in order to build and sustain success as a coach.
Cultivates Trust & Safety and Maintains Presence are the two critical elements of Co-Creating the Relationship with the Client. It’s often difficult to see where one starts and the other leaves off. They’re so intertwined.
Cultivates Trust & Safety: This presentation focuses on the ways of being as a coach that are essential to creating a safe, supportive environment based on mutual respect and trust. We’ll look specifically at the characteristics and ways of being that demonstrate integrity, honesty and sincerity. And we’ll uncover the subtleties that demonstrate respect for your clients and their perceptions, their style, and, in essence, their personal being.
Maintains Presence: The essence of Coaching Presence is your ability to embody and demonstrate openness, flexibility, and confidence. Two of the three learning outcomes for this presentation center on Presence. Specifically, we’ll look at:
The top 3 characteristics you must possess … or foster in yourself … in order to build and sustain success as a coach.
How to master the strategies, tools, and “ways of being” by which extraordinarily successful people live their lives.
This presentation explores and demonstrates how the coach “attends to the client and the client’s agenda, and not to the coach’s agenda for the client.”
Evokes Awareness: It’s not just the words you use that Create Awareness for the client. It’s who you BE as you’re speaking those words that create awareness.
This presentation focuses on those specific characteristics of your beingness that expand awareness and insight for the client.
Powerful Questioning: Denise will model how to ask questions … open- ended questions that generate the maximum benefit to the client … ones that create awareness, foster insight, and encourage action.
Direct Communication: Denise models how to be clear, articulate, direct and respectful in ALL your interactions with clients and potential clients.
She’ll show you how to bring that level of directness and integrity to all your promotional efforts as well. The bottom line is when you’re Embodying a Coaching Mindset, all your actions and communications focus on your clients … their needs, their desires and their agenda … not on you, the coach.
