Core Competency Webinar

Join us on Tuesday, June 6th from 2:30 - 3:30 pm Eastern Time
Topic: "Coaching for What Is Possible: Cultivating Courage with Your Clients" with guest speaker Sonja Stetzler

People who seek coaching generally are seeking to change something in their lives. However, with change, there is often resistance. And with resistance, there is often fear. This session offers tools for insights and tangible actions that we can employ with our clients (and with ourselves) to identify where the obstacles and fear is coming from, reframe the emotion of fear, and design practical interventions that bolster courage.

Learning Objectives:
1.    Identify the barriers/fears that are preventing a client from taking action.
2.    Reframe the emotion of fear so that we learn to harness the fear response.
3.    Design consistent actions that bolster courage and enable progress towards goals.

ICF Michigan’s Core Coaching Competency Webinar Series

What is it?

This webinar series will focus on one of the ICF Core Competencies. A brief overview of the competency will be provided, but the core learning primarily will occur through group discussion and, as appropriate, coach demonstrations, scenarios, and real-life applications of the competency in a coaching situation. 

Why important?
The Core Competencies are the backbone of professional coaching and the credentialing process. As professional coaches it is critical for all of us to understand, and be able to demonstrate, each core coaching competency. Regularly exploring the Core Competencies – in theory, but especially in practice – is essential to one’s development as a coach. This series is part of ICF Michigan’s goal to encourage, support, and provide resources to any coach wishing to become credentialed and grow their skills. Each coach who becomes credentialed elevates the credibility and accountability of the coaching profession by becoming part of a highly respected community.

Who is it for?
Whether you are a coach preparing for your first or next credential, or a more seasoned coach interested in brushing up on your skills, this series promises to be an opportunity for all coaches to learn from one another and share resources.

Each webinar is approved for 1.0 Core Competency CCEU
