CCEUs: 4 Core Competencies
Expanding Diversity Practices for Socially Conscious Coaches
Friday, March 13
1:00 - 5:00 pm
What does it take to step beyond the culture of privilege that coaching was born from? How do we evolve our practices and our profession to fully meet the vast range of human expression we find in our clients? And what aspects of this evolution are we being called to live into by the ICF Code of Ethics? As coaches, we speak regularly of coaching as holding the potential to transform our global community, yet so often the lens through which we view this transformation is limited by our own biases and perceptions. To serve our clients fully, we must step beyond our individual perceptions to meet the diverse complexities hat make them uniquely human!
Join Barton Cutter, Tracy Jenkins, and Susan Westbrook as they take you on a Journey to explore where and how your unconscious biases and perceptions interface with the coaching you offer and the clients you serve. Together, they will stretch the lens of how you approach your practice to evoke a greater range in those you impact!
In this half-day workshop, you will:
- Gain a deeper awareness of how unconscious bias impacts you, your coaching, and your clients in EVERY session
- Expand the edges of your comfort zone to bring deeper trust & intimacy to a broader spectrum of humanity
- Honor a fuller range of your client’s unique expression and craft powerful question to illuminate the core of your client’s identity
- Deepen your coaching presence amidst challenging differences
- Clarify when your principle beliefs undermine the client’s best interest and address this ethically
- Leverage the new ICF Code of Ethics and Competencies to deepen conversations around identity!
