    Virtual videographer Brighton West will share his top tips and advice about using video as a tool for helping potential clients to get to know you. Video is the best way to establish "know, like and trust" online. It's how most people prefer to receive information today. But it s a bit intimidating to many people - Brighton will break it down so that you can decide if video is right for you, and you ll learn and practice some DIY techniques to get started with your smartphone or webcam.

    3 Key Takeaways (please include knowledge, skills and/or coaching techniques):  

    1. Understand which videos are powerful for coaches and why.

    2. Learn to record on your own with your webcam or smartphone.

    3. Know how to look fabulous and connect with clients on camera.


    This webinar has been approved for 1.0 Resource Development CCEUs.


    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.

    One of the challenges for executive coaches is getting to the true cause of a problem or challenge the client faces; coaches need to be prepared to “dive deep, quickly” rather than the address the symptoms. Learning to ask powerful questions and creating space for the client to reflect is important. Knowing when to hone in and dive deeper or back off and allow silence to work its magic, is an art learned through time and experience. “Toggling” back and forth, while balancing insight with action, leads to better client outcomes.


    ICF Gulf Coast member Craig Juengling, PCC will facilitate discussion among participants to drive home these key concepts.



    1.5 ICF Core Competency CCEUs have been approved for this Special Interest Group event.

     

    Learning Objectives:

    1) Listening for the real problem of the client and asking questions to promote deeper discussions

    2) How to create space for reflection

    3) Understanding how to “hone in” and “back out” – toggling

    4) Connecting behavior and choices to a deeper meaning and purpose.

     

    *Thanks for David Peterson, PhD 2019  and 7 Paths Forward for the genesis of this concept.

    The United States, along with the rest of the globe, is experiencing some of the most major crises of our history. We can no longer deny or hide from America's 401-year history of racism and injustice towards black people and other people of color - who have lived with the brutal realities of racism for all these years. We have not responded proactively to the devastating impacts of climate change and the Covid-19 pandemic. Our population is polarized, with different factions judging each other and unable to work together towards solutions. 

    This special 90-minute interactive workshop builds on the introductory workshop offered by Quantum Culture in July. It is intended to be for allies and others who want to be part of the solution. It takes a deeper dive into Quantum Culture’s bold new approach toward working across our differences, bridging the privilege gaps between different human experiences.​ ​It is distinguished from most other curricula in several important ways:

          Addresses the multi-faceted sources of Privilege in our society 

          Creates an understanding of how Privilege operates

          Takes into account the Intersectionality of various sources of Privilege and different types of Biases.

          Provides relationship-based solutions  

          Calls for co-responsibility from all parties 

          Relies on an experiential learning methodology 

          Opens a pathway for creating true Belonging

    This training provides a cognitive and experiential understanding of how Privilege operates as well as an exploration of how to use it to address inequality and injustice and for the benefit of all.


    3 Key Takeaways:  

    1.  Deeper Understanding of how power and privilege operate in society and the workplace.

    2. The role unconscious bias plays in our thinking and reactions (and how to make that conscious)

    3. How to position yourself as an Ally
