    Why a Leaders Stage Matter's in Coaching

    Pamela Potts, SPHR, PCC

    1 Core CCEU

    .5 RD CCEU

    Adult Development theory is a model that allows coaches to meet their clients where they are. Have you ever wondered why some clients don’t journal? Do you want to know why so many of your clients are struggling to create a workable balance between home and work? Why do some clients have so much of their ego invested in being right to the point that it makes them hard to coach? What about those occasional clients that seem to have no ego and walk to the beat of a different drum?

    Although no human being can ever be reduced to a model, Adult Development theory provides a framework that may be able to answer some of those questions. In this session, if you are new to adult development, you will hear some of the basics of stage theory. If you have experience with adult development, come and share your stories of how you’ve used the model and listen to others as they provide practical applications that you may not have thought of.

    About the Presenter:

    Pamela works with leaders who are interested in developing and deepening their own leadership style and presence. Her coaching style combines wit and wisdom to inspire leaders to learn how to express strength through vulnerability and courage, while focusing on tangible outcomes and results. She has an innate ability to identify core development needs and creative ways to help leaders implement next steps. Pamela is sought after for her compassion, humor, wisdom and results-oriented approach.

    Pamela transitioned to coaching and human resources after 10 years in accounting. This rare combination of skills places her in a unique position as a coach, equally skilled in the “language of business” and the challenging “soft skills” that can derail leaders.

    Pamela specializes in coaching senior leaders in the technology, accounting and finance and not-for-profit industries. Her clients are leaders who describe themselves as life-long learners that want to be able to handle complexity, ambiguity and rapid change with thoughtful, deliberate choices that maximize the outcomes for all stakeholders.

    Pamela has a Bachelor of Science in Management and a Master of Science in Accounting degree. She also earned a CPA designation early in her career. Pamela graduated from Georgetown University’s Leadership Coaching Certification program in 2007 and holds a PCC certification from the International Coach Federation. She also holds an SPHR designation from HRCI. She is certified to administer the Leadership Circle Profile, MBTI, Thomas Kilmann conflict assessment instrument, and Maturity Assessment Profile (MAP). She leads a virtual community of practice focused on Adult Development. She is a skilled facilitator, workshop leader and conference speaker.

    Pamela reads voraciously, loves brainstorming, synthesizing ideas and writing.

      Presenter: Sandi Boyd, PCC

      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.


      1. Capture the physiology, focus/beliefs and language of a recent outstanding coaching/training experience where you are the coach.
      2. Discuss the impact the emotions you experienced had on how you were showing up.
      3. Create/draw an empowering Coaching Triad for how you will show up as a coach beginning now.
      4. Identify (2) opportunities where application of their Triad could serve them in other areas of their life.
      5. Commit to (1) action the coach will take immediately after this program to condition their Triad so it becomes who they are.

      Bio Sandi Boyd is a graduate of Georgetown University, Leadership Coaching, Relationship Coaching Institute and the Robbins Research International Results Coaching Academy and has been a PCC certified coach for 9 years. She helps transform her clients lives through her Coaching Triad and the results focused, purpose drive and massive action coaching system. She also helps savvy, successful woman to date successfully and find the love they desire.

      Sandi is a passionate about living her life to the maximum and to helping transform the lives of her clients. As an avid follower of Tony Robbins and has successfully completed 2 fire walks, 2 board breaks and the high wire/telephone commitment walk that has earned her the title of “Badass Sandi”.

      Presenter: Sacil Armstrong

      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.
