    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

    Description of Webinar

    As coaches, our ability to be fully present and conscious with our clients is key to a successful relationship. It’s important to intentionally improve these skills and identify the bad habits that erode them. This ninety-minute, highly interactive webinar will equip coaches with the Relational Presence methodology. This proven process allows coaches to heighten trust and intimacy, enrich their coaching presence, deepen active listening, and fine tune their direct communication with their clients. 

    For more on Relational Presence and coaching, see: https://coachfederation.org/blog/a-way-to-be

    Be prepared! This is a high participation webinar where attendees have the opportunity to practice the skills in live sessions. Bring your “camera look” and come ready to interact with the other participants via webcam.

    What you will learn:

    Key take ways:

    1. Discover where you are most present and where you can improve.

    2. Establishing trust, and knowing what trust is. How do you know when you have it?

    3. How do you know you have presence? Learn to stay open, confident, and flexible.

    4. How do you stay focused on your client? Learn to listen for meaning, and how to hold back from your own interpretations of what's being said.

    5.Learn how relational presence affects all of the coaching competencies, and gain 3 key skills to use for success with every coaching encounter.

    About Tina and Pam

    Facilitators Tina Mertel and Pam Noda are PCC-level coaches and are certified in Relational Presence (also known as Speaking Circles®) Training. 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. From there emerges a client’s inner knowing and call to action. This combination is what yields inspired coaching from the coach and inspired results for the client.

    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
