“Top 3 Ways Coaches Get in Their Own Way"
Making Our Hidden Narratives Visible
Through this interactive class we’ll provide you with a unique lens for identifying how we might be getting in the way of our coaching by revealing some of our most common coaching blindspots. We’ll take you on a journey through the coaching space of client and coach, simulate coaching exchanges to mine our experience for blindspots, and learn ways to minimize them.
We’ll be partnering with each other in dyads to explore our internal reactions to stressful coaching situations. We’ll explore how those reactions are a reflection of our patterns of thinking, feeling and wanting that are largely outside of our awareness and affect our coaching. The session is fun, dynamic, and revealing.
In this talk, we’ll explore:
● How Our Hidden Narratives and Patterns Can Influence Our Coaching Choices
● How We Might Be Getting in the Way of Our Coaching In Ways We Don’t Know and Can’t
● The Impact of Our Blindspots on Our Coaching
● A Guide to the Information and Gifts of Emotions
● A Feelings Inventory that you can use with your clients to support them in naming
their emotional experience
● Reflection Exercises (for you and that you can use with your clients) to bring
understanding to our emotional patterns
