        Aidan Waine

        Born in Lancashire, UK in 1960, Aidan began my career in manufacturing, studying engineering at Cambridge University. Market forces nudged him into the IT industry and he moved to Seattle in 1995 to project manage Microsoft’s SAP implementation. After 27 nearly years at the Redmond behemoth—the latter half leading Supply Chain IT—he retired in 2016 and embarked on this 3rd and highly bookshelf-compatible career as a coach.

        As a Human Potential Coach certified by the Bulletproof Training Institute his methodology incorporates International Coach Federation professional competences. Bulletproof augments the coaching process with surprisingly effective embodiment practices and performance hacking information. A client introduced him to GeekWire in Seattle and he recognized its relevance to all his startup clients and became a GeekWire Gold Pass member.

        Through his passions for human performance and bio-hacking he aims to help himself, his family, his friends, and to help people he has not yet met. His clients’ success is the utmost reward. For exercise and fun he plays soccer all over Seattle and golfs across Washington State and beyond.

            Presented by

            Lynn Taylor

            CCEUs 1.0 Core Competency & 0.5 Resource Development 

            Members $15, Non-members $25
            Hosted by ICF Washington State

            Description of Webinar

            This webinar is the performance of Masters level interpretation of the Individual Core Values Index™ . It offers better understanding of the new pathway to full self-actualization of a person’s innate unchanging human nature, not achievable without the CVI. You will learn how to coach a person up through all of the Maslow Hierarchy of Needs process, and then up through the Taylor self-actualization pyramid, learning to consciously shift from one energy to a different Core Nature Energy. This shifting between dominant human energies is how the human child develops their adapted personality, which is ego driven and emotionally based. How to identify key experiential life experiences, and relate these to current adult challenge situations. How to identify the core energy that was put to work in the child experience and how to unlock the adult experience by shifting into a different human energy, consciously before dysfunctional behavior kicks in.

            What you will learn:

            A new understanding of who you are at the innate unchanging level. A new understanding of the universal Human Operating System and how to manage yourself. Methodologies for consciously shifting from Being one energy into Being a completely different energy, authentically.

            How to Lift others into a more intentional and highly successful mode of operating—methods for delivery of a CVI report to a client. How to encourage and support each person’s understanding of self and of the mysterious human operating system which is made more visible and intentionally manageable by the CVI.

            About Lynn Taylor:

            Lynn stakes his company and his reputation around his “right person, right job” mission. He is creator of the Core Values Index (CVI), the only assessment to identify the unchanging human characteristics that dictate future job performance and align these with the responsibilities of a given role for guaranteed success.
