Power of Pause: The New Science of Brain Breaks, Stress Reduction, and Self Care
CCEUs-1.5 Core Competencies and .5 Resource Development Credits
With our work demands getting faster and faster, and the pressure to balance home and work continually rising, brain science has now shown that the key to our most productive, creative, and happiest selves isn't working harder, it's working smarter. In this presentation, you'll discover:
1. The power of pause--and why scheduling micro-breaks charges your mental battery and how it helps avoid coaching burnout
2. How taking care of yourself and building "stress resilience" can increase both you and your clients' productivity and happiness.
3. Why your clients feel highly distractible at 3pm and how to help them double their productivity in the afternoon
4. Why multitasking is costing you and the clients you work with time and money -- and how to achieve focus in a hyper-distracted world
5. What is the best way to structure your workday to manage stress and stay calm through even the toughest projects
6. How the science behind innovation—and how understanding your own brain's "deep problem solving" network—can be the key that unlocks your world-changing ideas
7. Why the best coaches keep their mental battery charged and how they tap into states of flow and peak performance
8. How successful coaches manage their "stress debt" by making micro-investments in their wellness throughout the day.
ICF Core Competencies: The main core competency this session will address is #8: Facilitating Client Growth. It will do so in the following ways:
1. How to help clients understand that self-care isn't selfish. In fact, according to the science, taking time to recharge your battery is what makes you "other-oriented."
2. How to make a plan to "habit-ize" brain breaks into your client's daily routine.
3. Understanding why it's hard to give ourselves permission to take restorative micro-breaks and strategies for overcoming the internal obstacles we come up with that don't allow us to "walk away from the computer."

Authenticity, Self Disclosure, and Diving Deep: Evidence-Based Practices for Transformative Coaching
Join us for a lively, interactive discussion as Dr. Patrick Williams guides a presentation and discussion on the power of emotional awareness and courageous vulnerability in coaching, what he metaphorically calls “Getting Naked with Your Clothes On".
Getting Naked (with your clothes on) demonstrates and provides clear ways to incorporate appropriate self-disclosure in coaching. Leading to truly authentic conversations, participants will learn how to "go deep" or under the surface, assisting the client in sharing ‘naked truths’ about wants, blocks, challenges. This approach helps them say what they have not said and think what they have not thought, thus increasing self-awareness by sharing with the coach what they may not be comfortable sharing with others.
All of this supports greater self-confidence, trust and emotional agility, leading to optimal living for the client, and the coach!
Coaches will also discern how much they should self-disclose and when is it helpful. A look at current research will be shared about this process of courageous vulnerability and the power of transparency and honesty--at the right time and with the right person. Emotions are just messages, and in our coaching, we can help decipher the messages the client might be ignoring or unaware of.
Core Competencies addressed: Establishing the coaching agreement, Establishing trust and intimacy with the client, Coaching presence, Active listening, Powerful questioning, Direct communication, Creating awareness.

The Power of Emotions-Centered Coaching
Date: Thursday, October 14, 2021 - 1:00 - 2:30 pm EST
Presenter: Dan Newby, PCC
CCEU: 1.0 CC, 0.5 RD
While most coaches believe that emotions are important in coaching, they often lack a simple, practical way to bring them into their client conversations. This concise session will introduce you to a new interpretation of emotions, a simple method for understanding their meaning and purpose, and practical ways to integrate them into your coaching. Your comfort with emotions will increase which will allow you to easily and organically use them as a coaching tool. You will find that working with emotions directly can deepen and shorten your coaching and often produces more sustained results.
1. A new, practical interpretation of emotions that allows you to easily see the logic of emotions and leverage them as a coaching tool
2. How to reframe emotions as an ally rather than an adversary and how they can be trusted to support and guide you
3. Dan’s Emotions-Centered Coaching model and a live demonstration showing how it is used
The following ICF Competencies will be covered:
· Active listening
· Powerful questioning
· Creating awareness
