    “Masterful Coaching Revealed: Demos with Two MCC Coaches

    There is a distinct nuance and quality to MCC coaching when it’s done at a master level.

    The focus is on the client at a level that invites the client to deeper self-awareness and insight. Time in the session focused on the ‘who’ vs. the ‘what’ marks the distinction between staying on the surface and delving more deeply to find the core question the client wants to explore and answer.

    Join Sheri Boone, MCC and Kathleen Spike, MCC for a powerful learning evening. You will experience both of these coaches’ difference in style and energy; even master coaching doesn’t all sound the same! Sheri and Kathleen will each coach a volunteer in front of the room.

    A review of all of the ICF Core Competencies and how they are demonstrated at the MCC level will begin the presentation, followed by the coaching demos, debrief, and Q&A.

    Don't miss this powerful interactive session, where you will learn to:

    • Identify potential areas of growth for yourself as a coach, and learn new skills to support your growth.
    • Distinguish between ACC or PCC coaching and MCC coaching as it relates to all of the Core Competencies.
    • Experience how masterful coaches weave the Core Competencies into the coaching conversation with skill and grace.

    Grow your coaching business. If you or a colleague are interested in learning more about the Masterful Coaching Revealed, you will want to REGISTER for this event!  If you are not able to attend the event a recording will be available for registered participants after the session.

    “Lunch & Learn” – Virtual Business Development Session & Networking Meeting

    Find Your Edge—What Clients Look for in a Coaching Relationship

    We all want to make a difference in every client relationship, but how do we know if we are delivering what our clients want and need? Should we ask them? Do we give them the permission to critique our coaching and let us know how we are measuring up? How can we know for sure?

    In this interactive Lunch & Learn business development session, join Coach Gary, 30 year coaching veteran and founder of BusinessCoach.com to discover the answers to these valid questions.

    In this presentation you will learn:

    • 3 things a coach can do for their clients that they can never do for themselves

    • A transformational exercise for coaches that identifies where blind spots exist and where breakthroughs occur

    • Exactly what your clients love most about your coaching

    If you or a colleague are interested in learning more about finding your edge in order to grow your coaching business, you will want to REGISTER for this Lunch & Learn!  If you are not able to attend the live webinar, a recording will be available for registered participants after the session.
