Explore & Discuss The HeART of Laser-Focused Coaching

Please note that this session will be held virtually via the Zoom platform. The Zoom link will be provided upon registration.

Regardless of our length of time and amount of experience coaching, it's always good to periodically self-assess how consistently and well we are demonstrating the ICF Core Competencies. Join us via Zoom for a facilitated discussion of Chapters 6-15 of the book The HeART of Laser-Focused Coaching by Marion Franklin, MS, MCC. You will be able to contribute and learn even if you haven't read any of the book yet! BIG NEWS: Marion Franklin, MS, MCC, and author of The Heart of Laser-Focused Coaching will be joining us!

The goals of our discussion are to:
  • Expand our understanding of the core competencies
  • Explore an approach to ensure we're consistently demonstrating those competencies
  • Focus on the core of the coaching conversation and how to help clients create shifts in their thinking
  • Understand the best approaches to closing the conversation and moving the client forward
  • Realize the importance of direct communication
  • Identify client's communication styles and types
This session has been approved for 1.5 core competency CCEUs.
