    DISCOVER Questions Get You Connected for High-Value Coaching with Deb Calvert

    July 7, 2023 |
    11:00am ET

    CCEUs- 1.5 Core Competencies

    Better questions = Better coaching! Participants will expand their repertoire of questions and learn additional purposes for asking questions that stimulate reflection, promote self-discovery, and accelerate client awareness about their own priorities, goals, perceptions, and options.

    Research reveals that there are 8 purposes for asking questions. Most of us routinely rely on just 4 of these purposes, but coaches who use all 8 strengthen relationships and accelerate client awareness and growth. Learn the 8 purposes in the acronym DISCOVER and how to enhance your coaching engagements by using a variety of all 8.

    During this highly interactive workshop, participants will craft and share questions. Deb will prepare a question set based on the group’s contributions. This lasting tool will reinforce the training and benefit all members of the ICF-RAC long-term.

    Participants will use DISCOVER Questions  to:

    1. Quickly understand and facilitate self-discovery about what the client values most and why.

    2. Master question types that help clients visualize or better understand their own desired outcomes and goals.

    3. Evoke new ways of looking at a situation and thinking about solutions by moving beyond standardized coaching questions and formulaic responses to “meet the client where they are”.

    Speaker: Deb Calvert 

    In your organization: Do people struggle when it comes to collaboration or communication? Are your employee turnover rates too high and your engagement rates too low... leading to issues with productivity, customer satisfaction, revenue generation, and profitability? Do you struggle to set, keep, and communicate clear priorities that unify members of your team? Maybe it's time to look at your people practices. To strengthen internal and external relationships, employer brand, and full-circle engagement, it may be time to take a good, hard look at the interactions and practices of your people.

    Using Silence to Maintain Presence and Evoke Awareness with Laura Janusik

    July 21, 2023 |
    12:00pm ET

    CCEUs 1.5 Core Competencies

    Newer coaches often say they feel like an imposter or fraud because they don’t know how they add value to their client by just listening.  More experienced coaches identify their ability to be comfortable in the silence as one of their strengths as a coach. That is the paradox of Silence.  It’s in the silence that coaches provide the client with time to think so they can find their own answers.

    “You should avoid the temptation to break into this space by feeling forced to ‘speed the process up’ or doing something ‘so that the client realizes that you are worth your fees’ (Dembknowski, Eldridge, & Hunter, 2006).  It is in the strategic silence where you add the most value.

    Laura has researched Silence and taught many of the strategies to feel confident doing it.  Join this interactive session where you’ll actually practice new strategies for silence.  This presentation has something for both beginning and advanced coaches!


    1. Coaches will better understand how listening is helping the client by learning some research on silence.
    2. Coaches will learn two techniques that can be used to help your client go deeper.
    Coaches will practice the techniques to become more comfortable with strategic silence.

    Speaker: Laura Janusik’s 

    Coaches rely on listening more than almost any other profession, yet the training coaches get in listening is minimal. Laura is a results-driven communication/listening coach and trainer and a recognized worldwide expert in teaching and training listening. Laura helps coaches understand the science of listening by translating the research and helping coaches figure out how to apply it in their coaching practices. With a Ph.D. in Communication with a specialization in Listening, as well as an MBA, and her ECHO™ Listening Certified Professional Certificate, Laura is able to see different ways to solve problems through both communication and process systems.

    If time permits, an overview of our Personal Development Plan (PDP) and Organizational Change Initiative (OCI) tools, including the use of the Leadership Action Deck in planning the PDP.

    There’ll be time for Q&A during and after the 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.
