When does development end? Not so many years ago psychological theories of human development indicated that development ended around ages 18-20. Now we know that psychological development continues throughout the life span. 

One particular aspect of psychological development wasn’t even postulated until the 1980s. This was the development of consciousness. What is consciousness? How does it develop?How does this interface with coaching? 

Here are a few questions to think about: Have you ever wondered why some of your clients tend to be more mature than others of the same age? What might that difference be about?What might you expect to hear from the client? What are the developmental challenges your client may be facing? How might your coaching need to change to truly support and be of service to your client?

Join this informative journey into the study of consciousness development as we learn what to notice and expect from clients at various stages of development and what themes will likely emerge. We will also learn how our coaching will adapt so that we can be of the greatest service to our clients as they navigate their own transformation and development while also dealing with real life concerns.

Objectives for attending this class:

  • Learn the stages of Consciousness Development,
  • Discover the characteristics of each stage,
  • Learn the challenges that are being navigated in each stage, 
  • Explore how your coaching needs to adapt to meet the client where he or she is,
  • Become aware of how coaching can actually promote the progression of consciousness development, and
  • Increase your confidence and comfort as you work with clients as they face and navigate their own consciousness development while also dealing with real life concerns.
