March Coaching Conversation - Authentic Leadership Coaching: “Better Me for the Better We”

When: 03/16/2021 4:30 PM - 5:45 PM

Authenticity is a way of life, a presence, a practice, a special voyage that takes time to discover or re-discover. How much of YOU is really showing up at home? At work? In life?
Perhaps you've heard the catchphrase "be true to yourself", well ... which self am I being true to? Which one do I want to be true to? What am I ready to start believing to let the authentic me shine through? What will it be like when I embody this whole-hearted authenticity from within?
Digging deeper and honoring "Who I Am" allows us to connect into "Who We Are" on a personal, professional, and human level. It opens up the door for us to become intuitive, inclusive Leaders and Coaches for those that we're fortunate to connect with.

"Becoming authentic means to know who you really are to know where you stand, what you value, what you desire, what you tolerate and what you don't ... offer your authentic gifts as bravely and beautifully as you're able to"
                             -Bill Plotkin

The goals of our discussion are to:

  • Define Authentic Leadership as it relates to Coaching (drawing out the very best in ourselves and others)
  • Experience the power of coaching and leading with heart, creativity, and courage to cultivate trust and safety
  • Understand how the daily practices we put in place for ourselves benefit both the Coach and the Client: Self-Awareness, Self-Regulation, and Self-Care

Evoke Coach and Client awareness using silence and metaphors to bring forth our clients' committed actions.

CCEUs will be available for this program: 1 Core Competencies CCEUs
