    How to Create a Masterful Speaking Presence

    Description of Webinar

    Speaking to groups is the number one way to build a coaching practice, but only if who you’re being in front of the room is as present, authentic, and sincere as it is when you’re interacting with clients. But, what’s the key to making it happen? Never stop being a coach! Apply the same core competencies to speaking as you do to your coaching. Create a safe and supportive environment in your room that honors your audience’s agenda. When you’re open and flexible in the moment, you create a dynamic synergy with your audience. The bottom line: Talking with a client in a coaching setting is very much like speaking to a group of people you don’t know … if you approach it the right way.

    This is a highly interactive and thought-provoking presentation.

    What you will learn:

    • How to manifest a presence that’s warm and genuine while being profoundly audience-focused and intensely purposeful. 
    • How the message they send goes beyond the words they speak. 
    • What goes into creating a compelling, interactive presentation that evokes insight and encourages people to expand their thinking. 
    • How to provide masterful coaching as they engage audience members. 
    • How to make an offer from the stage that speaks to the needs of their audience members and lands like an opportunity for further exploration and growth … 
    • and how to stay unattached as you do it!

    Experiment with Three Somatic Practices 

    Description of Webinar

    The Power of Somatic's in Coaching has become evident in the study of the body/brain science and its impact on learning. Coaching is about supporting our clients in learning… experiencing a new awareness or seeing a new possibility. Learning begins in the body with making meaning of the sensations we feel and then express in thoughts and words. In this session we will experiment with 3 somatic practices that serve the coach and that might be offered to a client. We will explore the difference it makes to bring coherence among the body, emotions, and language around something that is getting in the way of the realization of a goal. We will explore ideas of how to use somatics within ourselves (the coach) to observe how the client is being around what he brings to coaching… and thus allow the client to make a new meaning… a new awareness… a new possibility to realize a goal.

    What you will learn:

    • Experiment with Three Somatic Practices; Balancing the Body, Emotions, and Language; Shifting Emotions by Choice, and Using a Body Scan. 
    • Share stories/examples demonstrating how somatics serves clients (presenter & participants) 
    • Discuss some Body/Brain Science in how somatics supports learning. 
    • Share a bibliography that supports the use of somatics in coaching.
