    Join ICF Virginia, in celebration of International Coaches Week, for a unique webinar, May 8, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. EST.  The Neurobiology of Somatic Coaching: Embody Your Social and Emotional Intelligence

    This workshop, led by Amanda Blake, draws on material from embright’s Body = Brain program, which has been approved for ICF CCEs since 2012. In recent years there’s been an explosion of research about the brain and body. But our knowledge of this vast field – not to mention our ability to put it to use – is scant at best. Help clients take practical steps toward better living and stronger leadership by turning new research into applied practice. Learn how to build the social and emotional intelligence you – and your clients! – need to achieve greater satisfaction and success. Key Learning Objectives:

    • Discover how & why body, brain, and behavior are inextricably linked • Learn practical tools to cultivate qualities of social and emotional intelligence such as courage, composure, resilience, compassion, and clear communication

    • Develop your coaching presence & help clients grow their leadership presence

    • Discover straightforward, science-based principles and practices that reliably build social and emotional intelligence

    Core Competencies addressed:

    • Coaching Presence – participants will learn how to embody a more powerful coaching presence.

    • Creating Awareness – participants will learn how to ask powerful questions about embodied experience to elicit new insights from their clients.

    • Designing Actions – we will discuss how to enlist clients in cocreating transformative embodied practices.

    Amanda Blake, is author of the forthcoming book Your Body Is Your Brain: Get Smarter About What Matters By Harnessing Your Full Intelligence.  For the last decade she has worked with socially conscious entrepreneurs both nationally and internationally to support the growth of their leadership capacity in a holistic, body-oriented way.  As the creator of the Body = Brain course on the neuroscience of embodiment, she is viewed as a thought-leader in her field, and colleagues regularly seek her out for her expertise in the science of social and emotional learning.  Mandy is certified as a Master Somatic Leadership Coach through Strozzi Institute, and she holds a degree in Human Biology from Stanford University.  She’s also a longtime yoga enthusiast, mountaineer, musician, and celebrator of life.

    How can coaching help leaders produce tangible business results? Coaching is a fast growing $ 1B+  industry. Global research and firsthand, local experience combine to make the case for coaching as a competitive advantage. The Virginia Chapter of the International Coach Federation (ICF Virginia) will host an interactive, half-day workshop to offer a holistic learning experience for area executives, senior HR leaders, and community leaders on business value of coaching. The event celebrates International Coaching Week (May 7-11, 2018) and will be held at Luck Stone Companies in Manakin-Sabot. It will include a brief presentation on the latest global coaching research, group discussion, and 1-1 coaching by ICF credentialed coaches.  Business leaders should bring challenging, current business challenges to the session, and prepare to walk away with real possibilities after working with a coach!

    This program is an opportunity for Virginia leaders to discuss solutions to today’s top business and organizational concerns with their peers. They have the opportunity to engage in an hour of one-on-one coaching and an hour of group coaching from an experienced, credentialed coach. Participant leaders will focus on generating new insights that address a challenging business problem.

    This first-of-its-kind program represents ICF Virginia’s commitment to share the value of coaching in Virginia and beyond, connect individuals and organizations with coaches, and support professional coaches. Seating is limited. Register now.

     Description:      With this learning experience we will explore how we can better use situational leadership techniques to motivate our clients to personal accountability. We will walk with the feelings of our clients to understand better where they may be in their daily walk of life. We then will look at situational leadership techniques to move the client to areas of accountability. 

    Areas of focus:

    1.            A look at leadership styles of both coaches and clients.

    2.            What really motivates your client to action?

    3.            Creating the “Emotional Attachment” to move your client to their goals.

    3 Core Competencies

    As members of a coach community, we have the opportunity to be of service to each other, to benefit from the wisdom of our group.  Our yearly coaching practicums (facilitated sessions where you are coached, you coach others and then share feedback), have been a shining example of service to one another. These sessions have been among the most well-received programs ICF Virginia offers. In that spirit, we conduct two practicums each year, one in June and one in December. Get a little practice among your peers. It’s one of the best ways to up your game.

    Participants will be paired to coach each other.  Following each coaching session, we will share observations and experiences and explore opportunities during a debriefing exercise. Then we will break for lunch and informal discussion about your experience.  Participants from last year noted that this format was a good place to start.  It is a comfortable and safe environment for coaches who want to develop their coaching skills and receive direct feedback without being observed by a panel of other coaches.  

    Learning Objectives: 

    ·        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

    ·        To meet and interact with other members of our ICF chapter in a professional, supportive interaction.
