Spiritual Intelligence in Coaching
May 11, 2021 430-6pm
CCEUs- 1 Core Competencies and .5 Resource Development Credit
All of us have spiritual experience. Many of us engage in regular spiritual practices. How many of us have developed a spiritual intelligence that is reliable in a formal coaching setting, an intelligence we can depend on? How have we done it? Is there an empirical science of spirituality?
Is the need for spiritual intelligence made more explicit in the ICF’s revised code of ethics and core competencies in effect from the beginning of 2021? How can spiritual intelligence inform our work around Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, the chapter theme for 2021?
“Spiritual” is a living word with its own history, lacking a precise and consistent definition. As such, it can often provoke anxiety. How can we ease any underlying anxiety in our coaching performance?
This CEC will begin with a 15-20 minute presentation on ways we might look at this subject. Then we will move into small group discussion, encouraging participants to speak, listen and question each other in their own words. We will close in a group attempt to formulate a few powerful questions that we can carry forward into the future.
This program intends to touch on the following 4 ICF Core
1. Demonstrates Ethical Practice
2. Is sensitive to clients’ identity, environment,
experiences, values and beliefs
B. Co-Creating the Relationship
5. Maintains Presence
C. Communicating Effectively
6. Listens Actively & 7. Evokes Awareness
