    “You can’t change other people. You can only change yourself.” It's a truism. Only it’s not true. 

    In fact, if you’re a leader or a manager in an organization - if you’re a coach - you have to change other people. It’s your job. If you’re a parent, it’s your job too. And if you care about the people in your life who aren’t reaching their potential or, worse, are acting in self-destructive ways, it’s your longing. 

    The problem isn’t that you can’t change other people, the problem is that the things you do and say to try to change them don’t work because you’re doing and saying the wrong things. In fact, most likely you’re having the opposite effect. 

    What does work? That’s the focus of this session. We’ll look at the 4 fundamentals that need to exist for people to make sustainable change, and we’ll share the Four Steps - the straightforward, methodical, and replicable process for reliably helping other people change. 

    Key Takeaways 

    • Understand why it’s been so difficult to help other people change - and what we typically do that makes it even harder.
    • Identify the 4 powers people need to make sustainable change.
    • Learn the Four Steps - the straightforward and replicable process for reliably helping other people change. 

    This webinar has been awarded 1.0 Core Competency and 0.5 Resource Development CCEUs by the International Coaching Federation.

    While most coaches believe that emotions are important in coaching, they often lack a simple, practical way to bring them into their client conversations. This concise session will introduce you to a new interpretation of emotions, a simple method for understanding their meaning and purpose, and practical ways to integrate them into your coaching. Your comfort with emotions will increase which will allow you to easily and organically use them as a coaching tool. You will find that working with emotions directly can deepen and shorten your coaching and often produces more sustained results.

    Learning objectives:

    1.    A new, practical interpretation of emotions that allows you to easily see the logic of emotions and leverage them as a coaching tool

    2.    How to reframe emotions as an ally rather than an adversary and how they can be trusted to support and guide you

    3.    Dan’s Emotions-Centered Coaching model and a live demonstration showing how it is used

    The following ICF Competencies will be covered:

    ·  Active listening

    ·  Powerful questioning

    ·  Creating awareness

    Presenter Bio:

    DanNewby, PCC is a champion for Emotional Literacy, and works with leaders, educators, and coaches worldwide. His passion is helping emotional literacy become common sense and emotions a tool for daily use.

    He has authored four books on emotional literacy and its application to coaching. He regularly leads his course Emotions-Centered Coaching for coaches and “people who support people” including leaders, therapists, educators, faith leaders, and parents.

    He has worked with leaders in the U.S., Germany, Italy, El Salvador, Mexico, Slovakia, UK, Singapore and Canada. He often combines individual and group work and is the originator of Emotions-Centered Coaching.

    Dan also created The School of Emotions with Lucy Núñez (business partner and wife) to offer learning and resources to anyone interested in developing their emotional literacy.

Coaches, leaders, educators, safety professionals, or individuals wanting to grow in their ability to understand, articulate, and use emotions as a tool will find what they need. If it doesn’t already exist, Dan and Lucy will collaborate on its creation. For coaches, you’ll find courses and certifications in Emotions-Centered Coaching and for leaders, you’ll find coaching and mentoring focused on emotions as a leadership competence.

    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.
