    Effectively Breaking the Rules in Service of Your Clients

    Terry Watkins, PCC

    CCEs – 0.5 Core Competencies; 0.5 Resource Development

    When:  March 9, 11:30am-1:30pm EST

    Location:  Westwood Club, 6200 W Club Ln, Richmond, VA 23226


    As a coach, there are rules to follow. Every coach who has completed an accredited coach training program is aware of the rules (provoke discovery, ask open-ending questions, client has the answers, don’t give solutions, don’t give advice, don’t talk about yourself, etc.). Coaches are taught how to deliver pure coaching to be in partnership with their clients. The ICF requires coaches to demonstrate pure coaching competencies to achieve coach certification.

    Over the past 20 years the coaching profession has evolved. There are a variety of coach training programs and an increase of individuals holding coach certifications or identifying themselves as professional coaches. What does it truly mean for clients to partner with “professional coaches?” Clients quickly want answers, solutions, advice, and goal accomplishment. Coaches expect clients to bring their full selves to coaching sessions to explore deeply and move forward. Do the current rules for coaching allow for coaches to bring their full selves that leads clients to think differently and develop? How often are coaches breaking the pure coaching rules in service of their clients?

    Participate in a lively discussion on balancing between the “Business of Coaching” versus the “Practice of Coaching.” The session will be based on the recent Choice magazine titled “Breaking the Rules!” Is it time to intentionally break the rules? Attendees will emerge with a greater awareness and clarity to bring their full selves as coaches in partnership with clients.

    This course will address the following core competencies:

    Meeting Ethical Guidelines and Professional Standards, Establishing the Coaching Agreement, Establishing Trust and Intimacy with the Client, Coaching Presence, Active listening, Powerful Questioning, Direct Communication, Creating Awareness

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

    ·       Honoring the Coaching Profession

    ·       Myths of Coaching

    ·       Benefits of the “Business of Coaching” and “Practice of Coaching”

    ·       Guidelines for Incorporating Other Disciplines

    ·       The Essence of an Effective Coach

    ICF Virginia, Hampton Road Region’s Next Meeting: Friday, March 16th, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Bryant and Stratton College 301 Centre Pointe Drive Virginia Beach, VA 23462 (It is off Baxter Road, just off Independence)

    Greetings Hampton Roads Coaching Community!!

    We are still on cloud nine from our last gathering and want to keep the momentum going with our next ICF Virginia, Hampton Roads (ICFVA-HR) Region Luncheon event scheduled for Friday, March 16th, 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. at the Bryant and Stratton College 301 Centre Pointe Drive Virginia Beach, VA 23462 (It is off Baxter Road, just off Independence).

    ICFVAHR 2018 Peer-to-Peer Coaching Practicum

    One characteristic of a great coach is that whatever their skill level, they want to get better. When it’s just you and your client, there aren’t many opportunities to explore what just happened with fellow coaches.  Wouldn’t it be great to hear from people you respect that you just hit one out of the park?  Or maybe you’d like to know of alternate coaching moves that could be more effective in a specific situation.

    ICFVA-HR is proud to offer this opportunity to take your coaching level up a notch with the 2018 Coaching Practicum.  It’s an opportunity to learn by doing.  You’ll observe and debrief coaching demonstrations, coach a client and receive feedback from peers in the safety of a small group, and you’ll be coached.   All three experiences can add to your repertoire, add to your confidence, and give you food for thought as you move forward in your practice.

    Learning Objectives

    ·   To observe skilled coaches as they work with clients

    ·   To explore critical incidents in a coaching session and identify coaching moves which help the client progress

    ·   To practice coaching in a supportive environment

    ·   To receive supportive and constructive feedback on a coaching session

    ·   To identify the core coaching competencies used in a live coaching session

    ·   To sharpen observational skills as client and observer by giving feedback to fellow coaches

    Special Note:  Please bring a coaching situation that you would like to receive coaching on.
