    The Culturally Intelligent Coaching Mindset

    PresenterKelley Johnson

    Date: Friday, April 14th, 2023 at 12:00 PM MT

    Embodying a culturally intelligent coaching mindset requires coaches to remain aware of and open to the influence of culture on self and others, but what does that look like – particularly in cross-cultural coaching partnership?

    As we understand the cultural context of our clients, we strengthen the coaching relationship as we foster more trust and safety - allowing clients to express concerns, thoughts and beliefs about sensitive issues such as cultural authenticity, bias, and inequality.

    During this session, we will learn how coaches of all backgrounds can create greater awareness with their clients by deepening our listening for what may be unsaid about cultural influences and how they are showing up in the client’s professional life

    . • Culturally Intelligent Coaching brings to the practice of executive coaching an understanding of how culture is formed, and influences are beliefs, actions and results

    . • Culturally Intelligent Coaching provides leaders the opportunity to align their unique cultural context and experiences with current and future goals. This safe space allows leaders to achieve greater levels of congruency and capacity in their careers.

    • Culturally Intelligent Coaching mitigates performance and leadership gaps, creates a deeper level of satisfaction with work and life, and enables leaders to achieve and sustain more effective contributions to the organization.

    Through Culturally Intelligent Coaching, we can help people achieve a more authentic leadership approach that empowers leaders to leverage, rather than dismiss, their unique perspectives and background.

    Relational Presence for Coaches

    About our Program

    Build a richer connection with clients that evokes your best coaching self in service of the client

    As coaches, our ability to be fully present and conscious with our clients is key to a successful relationship. Yet sometimes we can let the skills and tools we learned steal our focus away from being in the moment. And without a focus on our way of being with our client, our coaching relationship is less effective.

    While it’s important to intentionally improve our capacity for presence, exactly how can we do that? This 60-minute, highly interactive webinar will equip coaches with the Relational Presence methodology. This proven process will build your muscle of how to be with clients. Relational Presence allows coaches to access a way of being that cultivates trust and safety, enriches their coaching presence, deepens their active listening, and heightens evoking awareness within clients.

    For more on Relational Presence and Coaching, see this article:

    Please be sure to use your webcam for this webinar. This is a high participation event where attendees have the opportunity to practice the skills learned in the session. Be “camera ready” to interact with the other participants via webcam.

    Past Participant: “The kind of safe space held [on the webinar] was fantastic. It was feeling the comfort of the space and the acknowledgement showers that helped me to feel okay to speak. For me, invaluable.”

      About the Speaker

      Tina Mertel is a MCC-level coach and is certified in Relational Presence (also known as Speaking Circles®). She has a coaching practice, teaches groups within commercial and government sectors, and trains coaches in how to use Relational Presence with her co-leader, Pam Noda.

      Experience has taught her that being in Relational Presence with clients is the ground of coaching wisdom. From there emerges a coach’s sense of what to say when and which skills/tools to apply. From there emerges a client’s inner knowing and call to action. This combination is what yields inspired coaching from the coach and inspired results for the client.
