Southeast Regional Webinar: Fun with Coaching "Stuck" (ICF North Texas hosting)

When: 3/10/2022 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Where: Virtual Meeting - Meeting link is provided after registering.
"Help!  What do I do with a client that stalls, doesn't know what to do next, can't decide or take action?  When they are totally stuck and neither one of us seem to know what to do about it, I feel like I'm failing as a coach and the client isn't getting any value from what I have to offer. Where do I go from here?" 

Sound familiar?  It is an uncomfortable place to be.  Sometimes the coach takes on blame, "If I was a better coach, I'd know how to get us moving again."  Sometimes the frustration is laid at the feet of the client, "This client isn't coachable." Or the coach reverts to their mentoring/teaching/consulting toolkit to get things moving.

In this session, we will reframe stuck and see the amazing opportunities it provides both coach and client.  Growth occurs in the juicy place right before things get unstuck.
