    The 4 Stages of Psychological Safety

    Friday, October 9, 2020 at 11:30 AM MT

    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    On the other hand, when psychological safety is absent or withdrawn, when vulnerability is punished rather than rewarded, human interaction: (1) activates the pain centers of the brain, (2) triggers the self-censoring instinct,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.

    Ten Neuroscience Strategies That Work

    Friday, November 13, 2020 at 11:30 AM MT

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

    Program Details

    As a neuroscientist, I've spent over 20 years studying psychology and neuroscience. And I've put together the top 10 neuroscience strategies I use to make my brain work for me. These strategies are immediately actionable and, on this live webinar, you'll learn how you can use these 10 neuroscience strategies too, to make your brain work for you and your clients.

    Objectives
    • Why trying to increase your motivation by working on your mindset is a big lie, and what works instead

    • How your diet, exercise and sleep affect your mood, focus and energy

    • Why positive affirmations don’t work to increase your self esteem, and what works instead

    • How to create neuroplastic change

    • … and more


     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 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

    • How we create meaning and thus stories out of everything we experience
    • How to get curious and help your clients develop awareness of their stories
    • To support your clients in recognizing their internal narrative
    • Locus of Control and how it affects where we focus our attention
    • What role your client is playing in the narrative of their stories
    • What to do when your stories get triggered

    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.

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.
