Has a line of poetry ever inspired you? Provided solace? Challenged your thinking? This presentation is designed to offer you an experience of working with a variety of poems (and poets) that you can potentially offer to your clients as a way to invoke, evoke and provoke. You will be provided several poems that are relevant to coaching, given a brief background on the poet, and offered ways that you might incorporate the poem into your coaching. Poetry can open the door to rich coaching conversations that might not otherwise have been possible. This program supports the Core Competencies of creating awareness (7) and facilitating growth (8).
This webinar has been awarded 1.0 Core Competency and 0.5 Resource Development CCEUs by the International Coaching Federation.
