Session & speaker details

Healing the Broken System of Trust Through Ethical Coaching

Janet Harvey, MCC 

Participants will discover how unconditional curiosity evokes wonder, opportunity maybe even the possibility for something useful and enlivening. The choice to be curious and tenacious to learn is what drives change. Start from a place of listening. Listen with a firm intent to learn through an open exchange and open attention. Truly perceive another person on their terms. This is the path.

3 Key Takeaways:

  1. Establish ethical relationship agreements about what’s permittable and non-negotiable when a conversation explores heated, vulnerable content. 
  2. Learn how to enter conversations that were previously off limits: social identity, cultural norms and beliefs about equity and inclusion.
  3. Identify 3 new choices to invite CHANGE in your enrollment, contracting and coaching process with clients.

Enriching Your Coaching Practice with the PCC Markers

Lyssa DeHart, MCC and Maureen Purcell, PCC

The PCC Markers are developed by ICF to be used as a guideline for coaching behaviors at the PCC level. They are a way to expand the understanding of the ICF Core Competencies and are used when evaluating recordings submitted to ICF in the PCC application process. The presenters will talk about their experience and training with the PCC markers and how they incorporate them into their coaching practices. The group will have time to discuss and pose questions about the benefits of PCC markers and how they fit in with the ICF Core Competencies. There will be time allowed for hands-on 'play' by the participants to get firsthand experience with the markers.

3 Key Takeaways:

1. Understand how the PCC Markers can enhance one’s coaching.

2. Identify how the PCC Markers supplement and deepen the ICF Core Competencies.

3. Play in depth with at least one marker in a live session in a large and small group setting.
