Managing Transitions in the Coaching Conversation

Thursday, April 18, 2019
1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

We go through a number of transitions during the course of a coaching conversation; how we manage these transitions can have a powerful effect on outcomes for the client.

Our goal for this workshop is to identify points where transitions occur in coaching and explore the most effective ways they can be handled. We will examine the ICF Core Competencies and how they can: (1) inform transitions that are an integral part of the coaching process, and (2) provide a context for recognizing transitions that arise spontaneously in the course of the conversation.  We will identify at least four transitions; explore how to recognize them, and discover how we can use the competencies to manage them.  

Participants will come away with an enhanced understanding of:

  • The different functional properties of ICF Core Competencies.
  • How the five process competencies can inform awareness of transitions inherent in the structure of coaching conversations.
  • The subtler transitions - times when we are not sure where to go next with the client.
  • How to manage these transitions so the client keeps moving forward towards meaningful outcomes.

In addition, we will draw on the wisdom of the group to enrich and expand our understanding of these transitions and their management.
