WHY ATTEND THE ICF RALEIGH CHAPTER CONFERENCE?

 As an innovative chapter that won 3 awards in less than 3 years, our chapter's mission is to
embrace, engage, enrich, and empower our community. The conference will invite attendees to practice the art of conscious conversation and to shift their attention from individual concerns and judgment to a turning toward our fellow human beings with compassion, curiosity, and appreciation.


What is Conscious Conversation?

The art of conscious conversation is the expression of appreciation, respect and concern for others within our community/team/organization. It is a living process that involves awareness, attention, and presence.


Be the Change You Want to C?

This conference is about partnerships, it is about sharing ideas and resources. It is about committing to the change you want to see without the need to convince others that what they do or think is wrong. You will come away imbued with confidence and empowered to stake an authentic claim for your business/ leadership vision. 

KEYNOTE SESSION - STRATEGIC COMMUNICATION, WHAT YOU THINK AND WHAT YOU SAY MATTERS!

KEYNOTE SESSION: STRATEGIC COMMUNICATION
What You Think and What You Say Matters!
Jim Milner, MBA, MCC
Board Certified Leadership Coach & Master Certified Coach
1 CCEU


 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 that incorporation of a coaching framework within the communication process results in a strategic communication and becomes the key for stronger conversations. Today’s leaders can lead this movement by making a conscious effort to hold relevant conversations that build meaningful relationships, improve employee engagement and retention paving the way for a sustainable and satisfying work environment.

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).

WHAT IS YOUR C WORD?

0.75 CCEU

In this session Alberto Polloni, PCC CPCC, and Sackeena Gordon Jones, Ph.D PCC will invite you to 

explore with as many C perspectives as possible, to practice conscious listening and to connect with others.

The first part of the conference is designed for you to follow a logical and intuitive incremental process of becoming conscious. After a creative discussion about the theme, we will have an experience for you to become present with the different dimensions of yourself, and then, you will bring your conscious awareness to another. 

Lastly, you will bring your conscious awareness to the group incorporating everything that you have already experienced earlier. All this will require your willingness to play, replacing judgment with yourself and others by your authentic curiosity and compassion.
