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

Are you considering self-employment as a professional coach? Or, are you somewhere along the self-employment path, wrestling the tests, challenges and enemies that path inevitably calls to fore? You are in good company!
This session explores entrepreneurship as a Hero's Journey: an archetypal tale in which the hero (you!) goes on an adventure, overcomes a decisive crisis, and returns home transformed for the benefit of others. Hear true stories of the types of challenges you can expect on this never-ending journey. Develop a coach approach for your business that prepares you for the inevitable challenges of solo-preneurship. In the context of the Hero's Journey, "failure" becomes fertile ground for growing yourself as a coach, increasing both your capability and capacity to serve others. You will discover, in fact, that the only way to show up as a champion, with treasure to share, is to successfully traverse the darkness.
1. Develop resilience as a coach and business person by adopting practices to support a growth mindset.
2. Bring Whole Self to the business by leaning in to what you do best, in the service of your clients.
3. Identify and remove common Business Blockers most entrepreneurs are blind to.
This course will address the following ICF Core Competencies:
A. Setting the Foundation

Program Title: The Next Level Coaching Presence: Creating your Empowering Coaching Triad
As coaches, we know that the coaching presence is the foundation of what we give to our clients. What if we were able to take our presence to the next level? To serve our clients in a way that magnifies their resourcefulness and ability to achieve their outcomes quicker?
We can do this through our own emotions that control everything in our life-our mood, decisions and our actions!
By identifying the powerful positive emotions that control your patterns of behavior-Physiology, Focus and Language (the Triad) is vital to you showing up in a peak emotional state to serve your client to the best of your ability. When you show up in peak state you will influence your client’s emotional state allowing them to be more resourceful and creative to achieve and exceed their outcomes.
In this session, we will create your personal Coaching Triad. We will condition this peak state so you can access this powerful emotion to be fully present with your client and for them to achieve breakthroughs and solutions.

VUCA Tools™ for coaches: Making it safe so you and your clients don’t have to play it safe.

Ann V. Deaton, PhD, PCC
VUCA-Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous. A term coined in the 1990’s by the US Army War College, VUCA is now used as an adjective to capture the rapidly changing terrain in our lives, i.e., we live in a VUCA world. Change is constant. Sometimes it’s all we can do to survive another day.
We coaches, and our coaching clients, often experience the volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity of VUCA as a threat. We therefore react in predictable, yet primitive, ways:
When we label change as risky and experience VUCA as dangerous, we go to the most primitive part of our brains, where our actions are limited to survival responses. Faced with VUCA, when we most need to access our brain’s amazingly rich capabilities, we simply react.
VUCA Tools™--Values, Us, Curiosity, and Aspirations. VUCA Tools arose from the recognition that coaching embodies much of what it takes to respond effectively to a VUCA world. VUCA Tools begins with the possibility that our observation of VUCA is simply awareness. Recognizing VUCA as our new reality enables us to consciously engage with changing circumstances. VUCA Tools are four approaches that enable us to access the strategic and planful parts of our brains to respond thoughtfully, instead of just reacting.
This session provides coaches with an introduction to the concept of VUCA, and the framework and methodologies of VUCA Tools to enable your clients to thrive instead of just survive in the midst of challenging times. You’ll come away from the session with a new lens for what you offer as a coach, and tools to use to ensure that you, and your clients, flourish.
