    Moderated by Kent Jensen

    Book Club Details

    This book club will meet monthly for four weeks (Nov 6, Dec 4, Jan 15, and Feb 5) to discuss Becoming a Resonant Leader: Develop Your Emotional Intelligence, Renew Your Relationships, Sustain Your Effectiveness by Annie McKee, Richard Boyatzis, and Frances Johnston.

    About the Book


    What distinguishes great leaders? Exceptional leaders capture passion. They lead for real: from the heart, smart and focused on the future, and with a commitment to being their very best.

    As Annie McKee and Richard Boyatzis have shown in their bestselling books Primal Leadership and Resonant Leadership, they create resonance with others. Through resonance, leaders become attuned to the needs and dreams of people they lead. They create conditions where people can excel. They sustain their effectiveness through renewal.

    McKee, Boyatzis, and Frances Johnston share vivid, real-life stories illuminating how people can develop emotional intelligence, build resonance, and renew themselves. Reflecting twenty years of longitudinal research and practical wisdom with executives and leaders around the world, this new book is organized around a core of experience-tested exercises. These tools help you articulate your strengths and values, craft a plan for intentional change, and create resonance with others.

    Practical and inspiring, Becoming a Resonant Leader is your hands-on guide to developing emotional intelligence, renewing and sustaining yourself and your relationships, and taking your leadership to a whole new level. This book is ideal for anyone seeking personal and professional development and for consultants, coaches, teachers, and faculty to use with their clients or students.

    StoryJacking: ReWrite the Narrative 

    Friday, December 11, 2020 at 11:30 AM MT

    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.

    Key Take-Aways

    Ethics: Where Ignorance Is Not Bliss

    Friday, February 12, 2021 at 11:30 AM MT

    Presenter: Jennie Antolak, MA, MCC

    Program Details

    People are seeking coaches that are effective, consistent and trustworthy. To ensure clients expectations are met, we as coaches need to be committed to continuously learning the nuances of and how to appropriately apply the ICF Coaching Competencies. It only takes one rogue coach to deviate from the standards to negatively impact the entire field of coaching. This is too important of a modality to let that happen. We invite you to join us in exploring the first ICF Coaching Competency-Ethics to ensure this practice, you and your people are protected.

    Objectives:
    • Learn the ethical standards set by ICF and how they play out in real life so you can ensure you are aligning your actions with the coaching guidelines.
    • Identify dilemmas that could happen or are on the verge of occurring and uncover ways to ensure they don’t turn into violations.
    • Determine pre and post action plans for dealing with issues that could arise with clients before they happen so they can be effectively and efficiently resolved.

    Going Deeper: How to Coach the Human, Not Their Problem

    Friday, March 12, 2021 at 11:30 AM MT

    Presenter: Dr. Marcia Reynolds, PsyD, MCC

    Program Details

    Even experienced coaches fall into the trap of focusing on the problems clients bring to their sessions. If you stay focused on these dilemmas, the coaching feels like it is going in circles because of the emotional attachment your clients have to their problems. In the end, your clients might find steps they are willing to take, but they don't gain the new awareness that will help them avoid similar problems in the future. This presentation will help you shift from problem-solving to coaching the human in front of you. You will discover new applications of your coaching competencies, learn three ways to prepare your mind for coaching and after observing a demonstration of coaching with the presenter, explore what you will do differently in your own coaching engagements.

    You will learn to: 
    • Differentiate the external problem from the internal blocks that keep clients from discovering powerful solutions on their own.
    • Perform three steps in mental preparation to increase presence and more effectively coach the human in front of you instead of their problem.
    • Use reflective techniques as well as powerful questions to "vertically coach" deeper into what is keeping clients from moving forward.
    Watch a live coaching demonstration to better integrate the practices you learn about in the presentation.
