Identity, culture and power dynamics are contextual factors that play into everyone’s lived experience. Yet, for many coaches, engaging in these topics can feel awkward and uncomfortable, and the coach may hold back. Learn techniques and strategies to confidently engage fully with your clients to support them in achieving more.
When: April 29, 2019, 7:00 PM - 8:30PM
Speaker: Madhu Maron, PCC
CCEUs: 1.5 Core
As coaches, we seek to coach the whole person when supporting our clients in achieving their goals. We work to build trusting, collaborative relationships that respect and value all parts of our clients. Sometimes this means being there for our clients as they open up about identity, culture or power dynamics they are experiencing. Yet, for many coaches, surfacing such issues with their clients can feel awkward and uncomfortable, and the coach may hold back. Unfortunately, when avoiding presenting contexts or questions, we may inadvertently do our clients a disservice by not inviting their whole person into the relationship.
The live event will:
Help you recognize how your own identity, culture and power dynamics may present themselves in your coaching relationships
Explore case studies and situational examples where identity, culture or power are in play
Increase your confidence to fully invite your client’s full experience into the relationship
