Core Competencies in Times of Crisis
The unprecedented events of the past several years have taken a toll on the world, leaving clients feeling overwhelmed and coaches feeling out of their depth as to how to support them. This session connects several key ICF Core Competency concepts to the values and skills coaches already possess to help our clients find solutions during difficult times.
Participants will gain:
• A deeper understanding of how to leverage critical core competencies to support clients in crisis
• An understanding of how to process personal emotions and heighten self-awareness to address the coach's own triggers in order to maintain coaching presence for clients.
