Learning Outcomes

The week is designed to allow you to view yourself as a person and as a coach, your clients, and coaching in general through a series of different lenses.

  • Coaching Through the Lens of Leadership How does coaching through the lens of leadership impact your clients and their world?
  • Coaching with Creativity and Imagination What happens when coaching is seen as a collaboration of two artists – coach and client –  engaged in an ongoing creative process?
  • Coaching with Metaphor How can we introduce new metaphors as a way of helping the client experiment with new ways of seeing? How can we work with the client’s metaphors to help them tap into their own wisdom?
  • Integrating the Heart, Art and Science of Coaching What does it mean to coach with heart? What does it take to bring your full authentic being to the coach/client relationship? How do you inspire your own and your client’s learning and self-discovery? How do you enhance trust in yourself, trust in the process, and trust in others?shutterstock_2584282
  • Journey Toward Artful Coaching What does it mean to be a lifelong learner?  How do you stay grounded in spite of uncertainty? What do you need to do now to integrate all of the various perspectives to which you have been exposed?
