Program Description

This program explores the possible connection between JEDI concepts and the beliefs and experiences of clients. One role of a coach is to serve as a “thought” partner to clients in the goal setting process. Oftentimes during coaching sessions, it is revealed that the most challenging barriers our clients encounter to goal accomplishment are rooted in personal beliefs and/or experiences. Participants will gain an increased awareness of how the JEDI concepts can create barriers for clients and coaches along with suggestions on ways to identify the whether the concepts form the foundation for barriers. 


  • Exploration of Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI)  concepts and insightful coaching
  • Develop a list of “JEDI” awareness coaching “trigger” words, phrases and other cues
  • Examine how a coach might use possible words, phrases and other cues as “JEDI” coaching awareness triggers
