    Conflict Management Coaching: Coaching Clients Through the Chaos of Conflict

    Cinnie Noble, PCC

    CCEUs:  1 Core

    When:  11/5/18, 7pm-8:30pm Eastern

    Location:  Webinar


    Guest:  $30.00

    Member:  $20.00


    When clients raise concerns about interpersonal conflicts they are experiencing in their professional and personal lives, many coaches find it challenging to know what coach-approach is optimal. Please join our webinar on November 5 when conflict specialist and certified coach Cinnie Noble will share her experience about what she discovered in her research and her coaching practice that helps clients through the chaos of conflict.

    Cinnie will discuss her evidence-based CINERGY® model of conflict management coaching (also known as conflict coaching) specifically designed to help clients optimize their ability to engage in conflict and to do so with increased confidence and competence. Considering coaching, neuroscience and conflict management principles in the creation of this model, Cinnie will also share a coaching tool she created that works to increase clients’ insights and broaden their perspectives.

    Coaches will learn what distinguishes this form of coaching from others and consider how three coaching competencies – planning and goal setting, establishing trust and intimacy with the client, and questioning skills –support its application.

    Learning Objectives:

    • Understand how a linear coaching model facilitates the way through conflict for our clients.
    • Understand the principles that inform conflict management coaching and specifically the CINERGY® model.
    • Learn what distinguishes this form of coaching.

    This course will address the following core competencies:

    ·        Establishing Trust and Intimacy With the Client

    ·        Powerful questioning

    ·        Planning and goal setting

    Presentation Title:  Creativity and Empowerment Coaching Using the Zentangle Method

    The Zentangle© Method

    The Zentangle© Method is a fun and simple way to create beautiful abstract art, using repeating patterns called tangles. You create tangles using a combination of 5 shapes – dots, lines, C and S-curves, and imperfect circles – you can create hundreds of tangle patterns. Zentangle art is non-representational, so you can focus on each mark and not worry about the result. Not knowing what the final product will look like frees you from expectations. Once you know the method, you will likely enjoy increased focus, creativity, self-confidence and an increase sense of well-being.

    Sacil Armstrong is a Creativity & Empowerment Coach with art & being.  She has over 25 years of experience with facilitation, community engagement, creativity, and a lifetime of intuitive awareness. She specializes in personal coaching using art, successfully serving clients from 8 to 98 years old, as well as groups, organizations, and corporate teams.

    Her clients tame their anxiety, recognize stress triggers, and gain confidence as they practice being present explore their own creativity. Her art has been featured in several books, including The Beauty of Zentangle and 500 Tangled Artworks.

    Richmond - Leading Through Complexity: Seeing Through 7 Ethical Lenses

    Linda Fisher Thornton

    CCEUs:  Core Competencies 0.5; Resource Development 0.5


    Increasing complexity is driving the need for better leadership thinking. It’s not just knowledge we need - it’s also insight, putting things into perspective in a meaningful way. Since today’s issues are complex, we will need a way of thinking about them that helps us see the richness of the full picture. In this interactive session, Leading in Context CEO Linda Fisher Thornton will share the 7 Lenses Model of Ethical Leadership introduced in her book 7 Lenses: Learning the Principles and Practices of Ethical Leadership.

    Linda has been in the leadership development field for over 25 years and is an Adjunct Associate Professor for the University of Richmond SPCS. Her book is currently used to develop leaders on several continents and is required reading at prominent universities. She will share insights from her recent work that take our understanding of “good leadership” to a higher level of complexity.  Coaches will gain insights that apply to their own ethical choices and to coaching others to apply ethical thinking.

    Discussion Topics Include:
    • Why don’t we agree on one definition of ethical leadership?
    • The need for a higher level understanding of leadership
    • “Seeing” in multiple dimensions helps us make better choices
    • The 7 Lenses of Ethical Responsibility
    • Intro to the Four Quadrants and 14 Guiding Principles of Ethical Leadership
    • Insights into developing ethical leaders (who can handle complexity)
    • Implications for coaching

    This course will address the following core competencies:

    • ·       Meeting Ethical Guidelines and Professional Standards
    • ·       Establishing Trust and Intimacy with the Client
    • ·       Creating Awareness

    At the end of the presentation, participants will have an understanding of:

    • ·       The scope of ethical leadership
    • ·       A model for seeing 7 ethical dimensions of any situation
    • ·       Insights for coaching clients as they handle complex ethical challenges
    • ·       A chance to take home a copy of 7 Lenses (via a drawing)


    Linda Fisher Thornton is leading a movement to Unleash the Positive Power of Ethical Leadership. Linda is CEO of leadership development firm Leading in Context LLC and Adjunct Associate Professor of Applied Ethics and Global Leadership for University of Richmond SPCS. Her book 7 Lenses is a practical guide to a higher level of leadership with the ethical values built in.
