     Where’s Your Oxygen Mask? How Your Wellbeing Affects Your Clients with Denise Stewart

    September 29, 2023 |
    12:00pm ET

    CCEUs- 1.5 Core Competencies

    As coaches, we get to support our clients in becoming the version of themselves they desire to be.  To do that most effectively requires us to be fully present with him.  How do we do that when we have so much happening in our lives?

    Let’s explore our awareness around our coaching presence and how we can bring OUR best self to each coaching session.

     Some of the things we will discuss during workshop: why a relationship with ourself is the most important relationship we have and why, as coaches, we must remember daily that our wellbeing is paramount in our profession; techniques for ensuring our wellbeing is at the front of our mind constantly; and why being a “selful” person and coach is key to our client’s growth and success.

    Meet our Speaker:

    Denise is an executive and leadership coach who specializes in supporting her clients in discovering their happiness and strengths, personally and professionally. She brings 20+ years of experience teaching, presenting, and serving in both corporate and non-profit organizations.

    Denise has been described as an engaging, informative, and compassionate leader who has an attention to detail and an ability to connect with people very quickly and deeply. Her degree in education provides her with an ability to read a room and exhibit a presence that demonstrates her interest in the people with whom she is meeting. She utilizes tools learned in law school, specifically the training she received around mediation, in her coaching. As a result of learning how to explore, leverage, and incorporate change in her own life, Denise discovered the power of coaching and has never looked back.

    By learning what each person's purpose and innate strengths are, Denise believes all people have the ability to live an amazing life being the best version of themselves. It is through adopting this belief that individuals can consciously lead based on what is best for their organizations, employees, and the world.

    What Every Leader Should Know to Catalyze Higher Team Performance with Kimberley Parsons

    October 6, 2023 |
    11:00am ET-


    In today’s complex organizational environments, interdependent teamwork is not just desirable - it’s essential. Effective team-based collaboration drives agility, resilience, and adaptability, as well as employee satisfaction, engagement, and morale.

    This combination is what yields exceptional, consistent results.

    Yet for many leaders, the challenge of managing the intricate dynamics of teams - on top of their other leadership responsibilities - can be daunting and overwhelming.

    In this session, we’ll cut through that complexity to make the basics of teaming practical and accessible. Grounded in more than 25 years of theory and practice, you’ll learn a time-tested approach that distills team functioning into four interrelated dimensions, with concrete guidance you can implement right away to improve team performance.

    In this interactive session, you’ll develop a new understanding of:

    ● The four key dimensions of team functioning, and how to maximize your team’s specific strengths and opportunities in each dimension.

    ● What you need in your leadership role to catalyze team high performance.

    ● Common “hot spots” that can make or break team functioning, and the corresponding team leadership behaviors you can cultivate to overcome them.

    Meet our presenter: Kimberley Parsons

    Kimberley believes that great teams are at the root of business results and great leaders use the power of their leadership to fuel, not frustrate the effectiveness of teams. As a highly sought-after team coach, executive coach, and master facilitator with over nineteen years serving in Fortune 500 companies, she partners with leaders to establish shared vision, build collaborative practices, navigate organizational tensions, and enhance team trust that enables teams to reach higher levels of performance and results.

    Kimberley began her career as an IT professional--doing everything from delivering code, leading tech transformation projects, agile coaching, and leading people—which caused her to immerse in a world that depended on team interactions and savvy leadership. Then, Kimberley’s career was disrupted after participating in a nine-month leadership coaching program for women leaders in Tech. She started the program with the goal of becoming a better leader and came out with a desire to make “great people”—not “great code”—her ultimate deliverable. That launched her second career in talent development where she has focused on developing team effectiveness, leading and executing strategy, and maximizing talent potential. Her experiences position her to bring pragmatism and a results focus, as well as, an emphasis on the heart and humanity, to her clients.

    Kimberley obtained her Leadership Coaching Certification from Georgetown University and her Team Coaching Certification from Corentus, a premier team performance coaching company. Given her start of working with technology teams to deliver big results, she focuses deeply on the power of leaders to impact team effectiveness. She also serves as an adjunct faculty member teaching Team Coaching in Georgetown University’s Institute for Transformational Leadership.

    Kimberley leads a boutique coaching and consulting firm – Created for Greatness – which focuses on helping senior leaders develop higher performing teams that deliver tremendous results. When she’s not immersed in work, she enjoys finding ways to “make memories” with her husband and toddler son in, and beyond, their hometown of Richmond, VA.

    Scheduling Priorities: Managing Time and Energy to Motivate your Mission with Dani Choi

    November 10, 2023 |
    11:00am ET


    Life can be overwhelming and stressful because of all the clutter we accumulate in our schedules - whether it is at work, at home or elsewhere. Similar to how we clean out and organize a closet, we have to declutter our calendars and understand what is most important to keep and what we can let go of. There is no one size fits all approach to managing time and energy but there are certain steps we can take and systems we can put in place to create clarity, focus and fulfillment in our daily lives.

    In this session, we will:

    1. Understand the role of a mission and values in managing time and energy.

    2. Learn how to categorize and organize priorities.

    3. Gain tips and action steps to create a schedule that aligns with values and priorities.

    Dani believes in creating strong partnerships that are built on honesty, compassion and respect. She is committed to using thoughtful coaching techniques and individualized approaches in her work and firmly believes that having accountability partners helps us get to where we want to be.
