Master Your Ability to Coach the Person, Not the Problem, to Create Breakthroughs

Thursday, November 15th 17:00 EDT

Even experienced coaches fall into the trap of focusing on the topics or problems clients bring to their sessions. Although the clients end up with new solutions, they don’t gain new awareness that will help them avoid similar problems in the future. How they frame situations stays the same; their views of themselves and their world remain intact. This is what we call coaching the external problem instead of the person. In this scenario, you act more of a guide than coach. If you instead shift to being curious as to why your smart and resourceful clients can’t figure out these solutions on their own, you will be able to discover what needs to be addressed in ways that your clients see new possibilities on their own. You expand their thinking and create more breakthrough experiences.

This session will help you shift from problem solving to coaching the human in front of you. You will discover new ways to apply your coaching skills, learn three ways to prepare your mind for coaching, practice listening differently, and after observing a demonstration of coaching with the presenter, explore what you will do differently in your own coaching sessions following the session. You will rapidly advance your mastery of coaching.

The Five Question Leader: Coaching Skills for the Busy Leader

Thursday, November 29th 9:00 EDT

Managers and leaders find themselves stuck in three vicious circles. They’re frustrated by teams that have become over dependent on them. They’re overwhelmed by the amount of work they have to do. And they’re disconnected from their own Great Work—the work that has impact, the work that has meaning.

Sound familiar?

Breaking out of those vicious circles is simpler than you might think.

Understanding the power of Great Work and mastering the Five Essential Questions can help managers, leaders and coaches increase the focus, courage and resilience they need to have more impact in the work they do.

At the end of this session, participants will not only have practiced the five core questions, but will have a plan to do more Great Work.

This session is based on Michael’s best-selling book, The Coaching Habit. With over 400,000 copies sold so far, it’s been the best-selling coaching book since its launch.

Coaching for Greater Whole Intelligence Part Two

Thursday, November 29th 17:00 EDT

Following the introduction to Whole Intelligence in the Pre-Summit, I shall describe its five dimensions, Responding to the Situation, Interrelating, Embodying, Self-Recognising, and Experimenting, showing how they are all necessary, interdependent, with each area of competence and capability requiring the other four dimensions to be ‘in play’. With each dimension, implications for coaching practice will be spelled out. For example, with Responding to the Situation, the need to identify how the coachee(s) perceive their situation, and how they understand the ‘Russian dolls’ systemic complexity impacting them; also how they ‘naturally’ respond and/or interrupt their response. With Interrelating, a Whole Intelligence outlook embraces issues of membership, affiliation, and loyalties (conflicting or otherwise), which are often hidden but affect how people relate to others, take sides, or act in apparently inconsistent ways. These influences can be made visible, and changed. Embodying – a radical challenge for many – is about giving weight to non-verbal data alongside verbal. Whole Intelligence is limited if visceral, emotional, sense-based aspects of lived experience are ignored. Inability to control anger, avoid burn-out, or manage stress are self-destructive. Self-Recognising refers to various kinds of self-review, reflection, and feedback from others and the need to register changes to inform up-to-date choices. With Experimenting, the emphasis is on consciously balancing the need for supportive familiarity with the need for creative handling of new conditions. The temptation to treat these as separate free-standing competences, is to be resisted: Whole Intelligence calls for recognising them as too fluid, changeable, and integrated to be divided up. But simple steps can be taken that extend the coachee’s range on each dimension. More can be found in my book, ‘Future Sense’: Five Explorations of Whole Intelligence for a World that’s Waking Up’, Matador 2015.

Team Coaching with the Perill Model

Thursday, December 6th 9:00 EDT

The spectrum from high performing to highly dysfunctional teams is a wide one — and team coaches can be asked to work at any point on it. There are several widely-used models of team coaching, but these tend to start from either a deficit focus (what’s wrong with the team) or from an appreciative enquiry (do more of what you do well). Unfortunately, teams are very complex, dynamic environments and the simple, linear thinking that lies behind many of these models doesn’t reflect that complexity.

Based on 20 years of research into team dynamics and supervision of team coaches around the world, the PERILL model is an attempt to understand high performance and dysfunction from a systemic perspective, where each factor influences and is influenced by the others — and by the moderating effect of the leader’s qualities and behaviours. The factors are:
-Purpose and motivation
-Externally facing processes and systems
-Relationships
-Internal processes and systems
-Learning and
-Leadership.

The interactions within and between these appear to account for the entire kaleidoscope of issues a team needs to address in adapting to constant change in its internal and external environments.

In this webinar, I will explore how the PERILL framework evolved and practical ways, in which the team coach can use it both to help the team identify and address the issues it wants and needs to engage with; and to build its capacity to coach itself, when the team coach is no longer there to support it.

The Three Habits of Influential People - Part 2

Thursday, December 13th 9:00 EDT

Connie’s session on influence is unlike any other. Influence is not about how to get what you want by manipulating others. It’s not about shallow, sneaky, short-term persuasion tactics that can blow up in your face and ruin relationships. Instead, Connie will reveal a higher state that anyone can use to make their greatest contributions to the world: The state of Influence 360.

When you reach this level of influence, you have the ability to change minds, behavior, and outcomes for lasting results. You earn commitment, not mere compliance. People trust your judgment, respect your opinion, and seek you out for help on important decisions.

True influencers don’t play the game, they change the game. Even when conditions are challenging, communication is collapsing, and people are difficult. Connie’s Influence 360 session is deeply substantive, highly interactive, and entertaining.

Coaching Your Clients to the Next Level

Thursday, December 20th 17:00 EDT

Taking on a new role, increased scope in an existing role, operating in a constantly changing competitive environment - all of these are next level situations that our executive coaching clients regularly face. What can we as coaches do to support them in these challenging transitions? Based on the research and experience behind the upcoming third edition of his book, The Next Level: What Insiders Know About Executive Success, Scott Eblin will highlight the behaviors that executives typically need to pick up and let go of to succeed at the next level.

Drawing on the results of more than 1,000 360 degree assessments he’s run on the Next Level model of leadership presence, Scott will identify the behavioral characteristics that make high potential leaders successful in the first place and the changes they most often need to make to sustain their success. Scott will also teach you how to use some of the simple, practical and immediately applicable tools and techniques he uses with his clients.

In the full session, Scott will go deeper on all of these topics and also share the self-coaching process he teaches his clients so they can sustain their progress after the coaching engagement ends.

Thriving Beyond the Golden Age of Coaching

Thursday, January 17th 9:00 EDT

By all accounts we are in the Golden Age of Coaching. Demand is high, fees are high (for those who are good) and coaching is widely accepted. Coaching, as a profession, is widely understood in the lexicon and has made an imprint worldwide.

More and more organizations have built robust coaching organizations using a mix of internal and external coaches. Managers are routinely trained in coaching skills. Coaching is hot!

The problem is we are starting to see signs that fees are slipping. Supply is starting to grow faster than demand. The number of coaches being trained each year continues to grow with increasing numbers of coaching schools and approaches. The market is maturing.

It’s also relatively easy to be a good coach and provide acceptable results. Clients are generally happy. This breeds a false sense of security.

Within the next five years, ordinary coaching will be provided by Alexa. The advances in voice comprehension combined with artificial intelligence (all done from your smartphone or voice appliance) will soon replace the ordinary, well trained coach. Once this technology is working, fees for most coaching will go down and organizations will look for the most efficient way to get the results they need. Fast food coaching will work well for many but there will still be room for 3 star Michelin coaches who will be able to maintain the fee structure they have become accustomed to.

In order to continue to command fees at our current levels, coaches will need to become great. They will need to help their clients solve their most complex problems. And they will need to do this ever faster and more efficiently.

There are many paths forward for coaches to thrive beyond the golden age and not be replaced by Alexa.

Enlightened Pragmatism: Bringing Wisdom and Design Thinking to Coaching

Thursday, February 7th 9:00 EDT

In talking with coaches around the world, I have observed that some are most passionate about developing people, some are most passionate about getting results, and some are most passionate about improving the domain in which they work. Since clients appreciate all three of these outcomes, wouldn’t it be great if we could bring them all together into a single frame?

In this session I will explore enlightened pragmatism as one way to do so. In large part, it is an effort to support coaches to outgrow the GROW model and, instead, to engage their clients in what I call “serious play.” To do this, we need to tap more of our innate wisdom and blend it with practices such as design thinking to re-imagine what coaching could be.

In this webinar we will explore enlightened pragmatism as an integrative approach to helping clients to develop themselves so they can sustain better results that make a difference in their environment. We will look at the essential elements of wisdom and design thinking and how each can be used to upgrade your coaching.

I will share three examples of enlightened pragmatism principles that my partner and I developed; they have enabled us to form a relationship unlike any we have had before. Each of these three principles has a direct application to your coaching relationships and how you show up in them.

Our clients need deeper connections, deeper wisdom and more sustainable results. Our organizations, communities and planet need the same. Come join the conversation and discover how this work could make a difference for you and those you serve.

"How to Use the Accountability Dial" Structuring Conversations that Lead to Self-reflection, Not Self-protection

Thursday, February 14th 17:00 EDT

While leading a team of people was never easy, the challenges the modern leader faces are extraordinary. Gone are the days of the supervisor whose job is to oversee work and focus on tracking deadlines and deliverables.

Now, the modern leader is tasked with cultivating the talents of others, without skipping a beat on their own individual contributions, all while tracking the micro-metrics, updates and notifications that come with the territory.

The modern leader is burned out, overwhelmed, and, most importantly, left without the mental space and emotional resources to do the highest value strategic and creative work that we is our passion.

In this personal and practical session, Jonathan will offer us a new way forward,.

Drawing on his personal journey as a CEO and people manager, as well as the work he does today with people managers in high-growth organizations, he’ll share the fundamentals of what he calls Good Authority, a way to think about leading people that’s based in fostering the personal growth and individual accountability of each member of the team.

The “U” Coaching Journey: Steps and tools to help a client (and yourself) to tune in with the future that wants to emerge.

Thursday, March 14th 9:00 EDT

How do you coach individuals to thrive in a world that the Navy Seals have described as Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous?

This presentation applies the theory and practice rooted in the research and scholarship of MIT professor Otto Scharmer and applies it to the journey of transformation that an individual takes when experiencing a coaching process. The assumption of this approach is that as individuals we are both a complex system and that we live within complex systems. In other words, are life is created and emerges from the intertwine and the interdependence of the systems we are a part of.

The “U Theory” emerged from the exploration and journey that Joseph Jaworski and Otto Scharmer undertook, when they focused on innovators and leaders who were able to successfully navigate the complexity of today’s world, and to innovate. In particular, Scharmer concluded that in order to close the gap between our present condition, and the desired future, that wants to emerge, a “U” journey needs to be undertaken. It is a journey that starts with suspending current assumptions and patterns of thought, and then dives into a process of observation and self-discovery, culminates with co-sensing and presencing, and then creates a proptype to experiment with, incorporating the feedbacks as an individual, a group, an organization, an entire society, both creates the future and let it emerge.

An anthropologist, a scholar and a practitioner of executive leadership coaching, Aldo Civico has been working with top executive, CEO, influencers, and a variety of leaders to help them thrive in our complex and uncertain world. Incorporating his own insights, and other approached that range from NLP to Appreciative Inquiry, from System Thinking to Communication Management of Meaning (CMM), Aldo Civico has developed a method that builds on the insights of the MIT group and the cutting edge research in social psychology at Columbia University, to deliver an easy to understand and to implement coaching process that helps individuals to transform and connect with their highest goal. In this presentation, Aldo will explain in detail his process.

Neuro-agility and Motivation to Optimise Your Coaching Impact

Thursday, March 28th 9:00 EDT

Carole will share powerful insights into two of the most valuable new tools available to make more of a difference with your coaching clients – Neuro-agility and Motivational Mapping.

Neuro-agility: helps people do things Simpler, Better, Faster – they improve their performance by Being More Neuro-agile.

People who are neuro agile have the flexibility to learn new skills, attitudes and behaviours faster and more easily. Coaches can dramatically improve their impact by learning how to boost brain fitness by accelerating the 6 drivers of brain agility. You’ll also gain an understanding of the 7 factors that make up a person’s unique neurological design, which can significantly improve their performance, productivity and wellness.

Motivational Mapping: helps people ignite the Fire Within to Boost Engagement, Performance and Happiness

How many of your clients really know what motivates them?

With engagement and motivation levels at an all time low, the sad fact is that less 50% of people are accurate about what really motivates them. Sometimes values exercises are just not enough. Motivational mapping, created by James Sale, provides groundbreaking insight into how to measure, map and improve anyone’s motivation.

Carole will explain the 3 fundamental roots of motivation and help you to understand your own and your client’s unique mix of 9 motivational drivers. You will learn how to rank your motivators in order of importance and measure how well each one is met. This has far-reaching implications for energising ourselves as well as step-changing the impact a coach can have when they know the motivational hot buttons of their coachees – relighting the fire within.

How Coaches Can Explore What’s Underneath a Conflict to Help Resolve It

Thursday, April 4th 9:00 EDT

Many people in workplaces hold the mistaken belief that conflict wouldn’t exist if the difficult people who cause it would just get themselves together and work things out. But those difficult people are just the part of the story that’s easiest to see.

If we’re going to learn from a conflict and really solve it — at work, at home, anywhere — we have to do some deliberate digging and assess the structures that lie underneath the conflict. In this session, we’ll look at some road-tested approaches that you can use to dig down below the obvious interpersonal challenges, and see what might be keeping those people locked in battle.

We’ll explore techniques to help the participants bring the crucial issues to the surface, recognize what they bring to the conflict, evaluate alternative explanations of events and communications, and practice more effective interactions.

Embodying Social + Emotional Intelligence - The Neurobiology of Experiential Coaching

Thursday, April 11th 9:00 EDT

It’s been been well established that social and emotional intelligence are vital to success and satisfaction in life. But how you do cultivate those elusive personal qualities like resilience, courage, empathy, decisiveness, emotional regulation, and the ability to resolve conflict? The answer: through experiential methods that include and involve the body.

Our brains developed to be our social and emotional sense organ, and our brains extend throughout our entire body. Thus, our emotional responses to life, leadership, and social challenges all involve the body. Helping your clients develop the social and emotional intelligence they need to live and lead effectively requires a physical, embodied approach.

Take practical steps toward better living, stronger leadership, and more powerful coaching by learning how to turn new mind-body research into applied practice.

Preparing Leaders for Senior Roles of Broader Influence

Thursday, April 18th 9:00 EDT

It’s been known for decades that failure rates among transitioning executives are too high, leaving exorbitant costs, damaged organizations and careers behind. But little has changed in the way organizations prepare leaders to assume executive positions. Though between 50-60% of newly appointed executives fail within the first 18 months being assigned, the same approaches to preparing, selecting, and onboarding remains in place. Based on a ten-year award-winning longitudinal study of more than 2700 leaders, this session will help those coaching rising leaders on how to avoid the most common pitfalls that derail promising talent, and how to cultivate the four dimensions of leadership that consistently set apart the other 50% of those who succeeded and thrived once appointed to bigger roles.

Journey to Coaching Mastery: The Importance of Developing an Innovative Mindset

Journey to Coaching Mastery: The Importance of Developing an Innovative Mindset

Mastery in coaching – or anything else - is not about perfection. It's much more to do with being clear about where you’re going and developing the ability to make easy, elegant and successful in-course correction whenever the need arises. To do this you need to be able to innovate. This is why innovation and mastery go hand in hand.

Ever made a successful change in your life? The answer is going to be yes - unless you’re still the same as you were twenty years ago. But do you think of yourself as an innovator? Most people don’t and most coaches don’t think of themselves like this either.

Owning your innovative potential is crucial if you’re going to deliver all that you could. Understanding what triggers an innovative mindset and how to strengthen it will enable you to add enormous value.

When we’re developing a new way of doing anything we often need to go through a number of iterations to get it right. So do you and your clients have the flexibility and the stamina to do this?

If you commit to remaining innovative in your own coaching practice you’ll be making the journey toward greater coaching mastery. Why? Because you’ll necessarily be going beyond your previous limits and, in stretching yourself, learning how to expand your repertoire and deliver greater value to your clients.

However, such innovation involves trial and error learning. That’s trial and ERROR learning. So how are you – and your clients - with making mistakes? No mistakes, no mastery!

In this webinar I want to share with some of the ways you can foster an innovative mindset in yourself and your clients be they individuals, teams or organizations.

Key Learning Takeaways

1.Learn how to develop an innovative mindset in yourself and with your clients.

2. Learn how to remove the tyranny of perfectionism and overcome performance anxiety so you and they have the freedom to experiment.

3. Develop the stamina and flexibility to stay the course as you instigate innovative change.

Coaching at Start Ups – Here’s How it’s Different form the Corporate World

Thursday, May 9th 9:00 EDT

Start ups and other high growth companies are fascinating places to work. Since they move fast and are so small you can often see the results of your coaching immediately. Since they are so intense you can often have deeper relationships than in larger companies. At the same time, these environments can be at times loose, informal, and tough to navigate for the coach. And coaches need to adjust their style to meet the needs of a young, new leader and executive team. This session will showcase the differences between start ups and large corporations and give ideas about how to adjust.

Coaching: A New Learning for New Times - Part 2

Thursday, May 9th 17:00 EDT

Every new practice is created when the old practices in that domain cannot address emerging breakdowns or concerns. What breakdowns or concerns was coaching born to address?

We must integrate the inner aspect of human experience in our learning practices. Materialism and reductionism are leaving out the “human soul.” Learning is more than gathering information or becoming simply effective. How did we arrive here? And where can we go from here?

Improving Approaches to Executive Hiring

Thursday, May 23rd 9:00 EDT

This session will focus almost entirely on improving approaches to executive hiring. We will explore two key elements.

First, we will introduce principles that will enable participants to develop and use more effective questioning during candidate interviews. We will cover basic psychometrics and help participants build approaches to candidate interviewing that will enable them to make effective decisions between candidates. This will go beyond standard job definitions and requirements to understanding how to identify and build rudimentary indicators of the talents critical to success in roles.

Second, we will provide an overview of what our research into effective C-suite leadership tells us about the characteristics of the very best leaders, how we measure this and how this drives performance. We will share some of our most significant findings from our global database of 57,000 global executives and also describe how effective leadership is dependent on a team comprised of individuals with significantly different thinking styles.
