    Speaking has always been a great client-generation strategy. With the massive migration to virtual meetings, this opportunity has multiplied exponentially.

    Design a plan of exactly what to do before, during and after a speaking gig (live or online!) to make your audience hungry to work with you (even before you walk through the door)

    Understand the one thing you MUST do to turn no-fee speaking into a steady stream of great clients

    Integrate speaking into a complete client generation strategy so you can build a profitable business, without working nights and weekends

    The 4 Stages of Psychological Safety

    Friday, October 9, 2020

    Presenter: Dr. Timothy R. Clark

    Program Details 

    Based on his new book, The 4 Stages of Psychological Safety: Defining the Path to Inclusion and Innovation, Dr. Clark, an Oxford-trained social scientist and global thought leader, will share his breakthrough research on the topic of psychological safety and provide global best practices for coaching engagements.

    In 2020, organizations around the world share at least two goals: The first is to create a sanctuary of inclusion. The second is to create an incubator of innovation. These goals can only be accomplished when leaders model and reinforce psychological safety to activate the full potential of people. Psychological safety means that it's not expensive to be yourself, but it's not a binary proposition. It's a matter of degree. When leaders nurture psychological safety to the highest levels, individuals are able to do four things:

    • Feel included
    • Feel safe to learn
    • Feel safe to contribute
    • Feel safe to challenge the status quo

    And they can do all of these things without feeling embarrassed, marginalized, or punished in some way.

    On the other hand, when psychological safety is absent or withdrawn, when vulnerability is punished rather than rewarded, human interaction: (1) activates the pain centers of the brain, (2) triggers the self-censoring instinct, and (3) shifts the individual to a defensive mode of performance.

    About Our Speaker

    Dr. Timothy R. Clark is the found and CEO of LeaderFactor and is based in Salt Lake City, Utah. 

    Tim ranks as a global authority in the fields of senior executive development, strategy acceleration, and organizational change. He is the author of five books:

    • Epic Change: How to Lead Change in the Global Age (John Wiley/Jossey-Bass)
    • Leadership Bones (Bradmore Road Press 2009)
    • The Employee Engagement Mindset (McGraw-Hill 2012)
    • Leading with Character and Competence (Berrett Koehler 2016)
    • The 4 Stages of Psychological Safety (Berrett Koehler 2020)

    Tim has written more than 150 articles on leadership, change, strategy, human capital, culture, and employee engagement. He is a highly sought-after advisor, coach, and facilitator to CEOs and senior leadership teams. He has worked with leading organizations around the world.

    Tim’s leadership experience is extensive. He was previously President and CEO of Decker, a consulting firm based in San Francisco, and CEO of Novations SDC, a consulting and training firm based in Boston. Prior to these assignments, Dr. Clark spent several years in manufacturing, serving as a vice president of operations and plant manager of Geneva Steel Company. He began his career as a survey research project director for what is now Harris Interactive in Washington, D.C.

    Dr. Clark earned a doctorate degree in Social Science from Oxford University and was both a Fulbright and British Research Scholar. He also earned a master’s degree in Government and Economics from the University of Utah. As an undergraduate at Brigham Young University, he was named a first-team Academic All-American football player where he completed a triple degree cum laude.

    Ten Neuroscience Strategies That Work

    Friday, November 13, 2020

    Presenter: Dr. Irena O'Brien, PhD, ACMC

    Webinar Details Coming Soon

     About Our Speaker

    Dr. Irena O’Brien is a cognitive neuroscientist and has been studying psychology and neuroscience for over 20 years. After working as a chartered accountant for 15 years, she went back to university and obtained her PhD in Psychology from the Université du Québec à Montréal. While there, she conducted brain imaging and electrophysiological studies and went on to do a postdoctoral fellowship at the Centre for Language, Mind and Brain at McGill University.

    Dr. Irena is passionate about neuroscience. She reads and writes about the latest research in neuroscience and psychology, which offer us practical tools and strategies that we can use to better our own lives and the lives of our our clients. She is a testament to that, continuing to use what she learns from neuroscience in her own life and that of her family.

    Which is why she founded The Neuroscience School, a neuroscience training and information programme for coaches and health and wellness professionals, where she un-complicates neuroscience and teaches practical evidence-based tools and strategies her students can use in their practice. One of her pet peeves is the misinformation about neuroscience that floods the media and her goal is to right that wrong. Dr. Irena is particularly interested in how our lifestyle choices impact brain structure and function, affecting mood and cognitive functioning into old age. She is a firm believer that having a healthy brain and mind requires a healthy body.

    StoryJacking: ReWrite the Narrative 

    Friday, December 11, 2020

    Presenter: Lyssa deHart, LICSW, MCC

    Program Details

    Have you ever been derailed listening to your client’s stories, flooded with the surface story, and missed the deeper, often hidden plot line that lies just below the surface? These underlying stories are often the real issues that stop your clients from moving forward. These stories sabotage them and ultimately are the foundation to everything they believe they can or cannot accomplish.

    Many coaches focus on “bottom lining” stories and miss the opportunity to help clients unpack some deep beliefs that hinder them. Our stories are the doorway into deeper awareness. Stories come on the spectrum of Snapshot Stories, “I am not good enough.” “I can’t handle this.” “No one cares what I have to say.” All the way to the deeply woven and unconsciously integrated stories that affect the way we look at the world and our place in it.

    What would be possible for you and your clients if you could assess the difference between what is interesting and what is important in the stories that they are telling? What might transform in your client’s life if you could hold the space of the internal narrative and help unpack the deeper issues at play? Key Take-Aways 1. How we create meaning and thus stories out of everything we experience 2. How to get curious and help your clients develop awareness of their stories 3. To support your clients in recognizing their internal narrative 4. Locus of Control and how it affects where we focus our attention 5. What role your client is playing in the narrative of their stories 6. What to do when your stories get triggered.
