    Description of Course

    Video engages us. It ignites emotions.  That’s why it’s becoming a powerful and important medium for entrepreneurs and small business owners. By adding a sense of an individual connection, it creates an amazing connection with your audience and builds trust at the same time.  It can speak to your current clients as well as attract new clients – videos are shared and discoverable once they’re public.  You can tell stories, explain unique approaches, provide weekly tips, prospect for new clients and teach courses. 

    You don’t need to be salesy. To be effective, you just need to be authentic and know a few guidelines so your videos are compelling to watch. With that and a little practice, you can overcome your fear of actually making videos and have fun in the process.  

    What you will learn:

    • The foundations of effective videos
    • Key steps and tips to making professional-looking videos from your phone or laptop – all without expensive equipment
    • Ways to incorporate video into your practice or business

    Description of Course

    When cancer strikes it touches everyone – cancer patients, survivors, caregivers and support teams. Rarely do we have a personal reference for how to relate to the experience. Everyone's a first timer, with lots of uncertainty and fear.

    How does anyone deal with such a life's set-back, without losing their sense of hope?

    In this instructive and experiential session, Cancer Journey coach, David Kegley, will introduce new tools and concepts that help clients traverse the challenging treatment phase and transition back into their life while gaining a new or renewed sense of empowerment and clarity that's beyond the physical support.

    Just being part of this experience will not only help you learn how to help people who suddenly find themselves bewildered and struggle to get present with you but also see your own life from a new perspective regardless of your current context.

    What you will learn:

    1. Develop a way to help clients see a crisis in the larger context of a journey.

    2. Use a simple navigational tool to walk with your client through their ups and downs.

    3. Get to know your coaching colleagues in a fun and meaningful way.

    4. Practice a unique way to engage ICF core competencies.

    5. Gain confidence to coach clients when they hit major set-backs in life.

    Core Competencies: Active Listening, Powerful Questioning, Creating Awareness, Planning and Goal Setting

    Description of Webinar

    While public speaking is one of the most effective ways to attract the right clients to your business, position yourself as a thought leader, and make big impact in the world, most coaches who speak are following tired formulas for how to present (and sell) and are positioning themselves as experts at the expense of showing off their coaching skills. In this dynamic, interactive presentation, Alexia Vernon will show attendees how to create presentations that provide audience members with a rich coaching experience, how to use core coaching competencies when inviting audience members into ongoing work, and how to turn organizational pitches into a coaching experience for decision-makers.

    What you will learn:

    -Develop presentations and pitches that demonstrate their coaching acumen and create breakthroughs for audience members

    -Integrate the core coaching competencies of creating intimacy and trust, coaching presence, creating awareness, direct communication, and powerful questioning into their speaking

    -Sculpt and deliver powerful calls to action that guide raving fans into individual and organizational coaching clients

Experience has taught them that being in Relational Presence with clients is the ground of coaching wisdom. From there emerges a coach’s sense of what to say when and which skills/tools to apply.

    Description of Webinar

    Learn the science of how to help your clients master the skill set of habit formation

    Habits are our brain's go to tool to tackle almost any goal or task, which is why helping your clients get in the driver’s seat of their habit- making machinery can be a game changer. You’ll walk away with everything you need to help your clients know to start making measurable change. Just like learning how to play the piano, learning how to form positive habits is a skill set.

    What you will learn:

      • Why the key to knocking out habits is building them sequentially, not simultaneously
      • How to use proven methods like "habit stacking" and "habit tracking" to make or break any habit
      • Why keeping your client motivated is easy with one small tweak
      • How motivation often follows action, rather than preceding it
      • How making your habits “stupid small” can be the game-changer you and your coaching client have been looking for
