    Executive and organizational coaches working with leaders, teams, and groups are immersed in complex, evolving organizational systems. This equally applies to transition and career coaches as there is always a systemic context to the coaching work. A coach’s ability to show up confident, competent, creative, and compassionate for their clients depends on their capacity to review and reflect on their work. This experiential session, using a live group supervision session and dialog, aims to illustrate coaching supervision as a reflective practice helping coaches be attentive and present to themselves, their clients, and organizations as systems.


    Being an effective systemic coach means being attentive and present with the leaders we coach and reflecting on our work through three lenses—Self (how is my coaching client’s situation affecting me?), Others, (what is the quality of my client relationship and my relationship to the client organization?), and the System (What is happening within the system/s the client operates in, and what effects are being felt by the client?). Coaching Supervision creates the reflective and relational space for coaches to look through these three lenses to learn and develop from a systems perspective in service of their clients and organizations. In this experiential session, through live supervision sessions, participants will have the opportunity to give and receive coaching supervision and to experience, through a reflective dialog, how to view their work through a more systemic lens.

    How do you expand your coaching presence using all senses, including that of intuition?  Intuition can be applied in the coaching process to create awareness for the client using your presence, active listening and powerful questioning. Learn more about the power of intuition in coaching in this workshop that can deepen your own impact in your coaching sessions. 

    Coaches are naturally curious and often highly intuitive.  While Intuition is listed as a sub-bullet under the Core Competency of Coaching Presence, coaches may be reluctant to ‘trust’ their intuition.  Some coaches might trust their intuition but then may not be sure how to use it without driving an agenda with a client.  This webinar is designed to explore the use of intuition as a practical tool that can deepen coaching presence and help to stimulate active listening, powerful questioning and creating awareness with their clients.


    3 Key Takeaways:  
    1.     Understand the interrelationships of using intuition to the Core Competencies:
    ·      Presence
    ·      Active Listening
    ·      Powerful Questioning
    ·      Creating Awareness

    2. Identify different ways one’s intuition can present itself.

    3. Know how to apply this tool of intuition as a coach as well as encouraging its use within one’s clients.

    About Brighton West

    Brighton West is a virtual videographer for professional coaches. He began his video journey making narrative and documentary videos – but he was always behind the camera. Along the way, he learned being on camera was more influential/beneficial/profitable than being behind it. So he overcame his fear of being on camera and now helps his client turn the camera on themselves. Brighton has built his business by creating YouTube tutorials about using YouTube in business. Through his channel, hes positioned himself as the expert for professional coaches who want to grow their global audience with video. He now helps these subject matter experts avoid his early mistakes and accelerates their journey to success with online video.

    Brighton works with coaches around the world to get the three videos that coaches need: authority building videos, testimonial videos and a  video headshot.”  You wont find Brighton behind a camera anymore. Hell teach you to be your own DIY videographer, find a local videographer to film you, or he can be your virtual-videographer by capturing you through your webcam – whichever is right for you and your business. Dont run out and hire a videographer who has fancy equipment, but doesnt understand what works to grow a coaching practice. Connect with Brighton to figure out the right strategy for your business.
