    Description of Webinar

    Metaphors are all around us; they flow through the daily rhythm of our conversations. Unless they are wildly obvious, we may miss them. Join this fun webinar and learn to play with the power of visual language. Learn what metaphors and similes are and consider ways to use them with your clients artfully.

    John Geary said, “Whenever we describe anything abstract: ideas, feelings, thoughts, emotions, concepts, we instinctively resort to metaphors”

    Learning to use the metaphors that your clients bring to the conversation is far more powerful than scripting your metaphors into the coaching conversation. Metaphors are vivid doorways into who your clients are being, their deeply held beliefs, their vision of themselves and their sense of what they want. This awareness can give you a powerful tool to get curious with greater ease. 

    What you will learn:

    • The differences between Metaphors and Similes.
    • Neuroscience + Metaphors.
    • The power of using the Metaphors that your clients bring to your coaching conversations.
    • Coaching demonstration.
    • Practice using actual client conversational prompts to begin to play with crafting powerful questions that get straight to the heart of your clients concerns.
    • And, connecting the use of client Metaphors to competencies of Direct Communication, Active Listening, Awareness, Powerful Questioning, and Trust and Intimacy.

      Creating powerful, fun & profitable partnerships

      Description of Webinar

      Most coaches start their own practice excited about “doing their own thing” and being their own boss.  The flip side, however, is that working alone can be isolating and uninspiring at times. Solopreneurs crave both autonomy and collaboration in their businesses at the same time.  Strategic Alliances are a great way to get both of those needs met while moving your business to the next level when you pick the right partners for the right projects.  Coaches who crave collaboration often jump into strategic alliances without clarity of vision and strong design, and get little ROI as a result. When done well, Strategic Alliances can be one of the fastest ways to grow your business.  This training will teach you how to do just that. 

      What you will learn:

      Learn the secrets to doing Strategic Alliances with other professionals and watch your list and profits grow.  In this presentation your will learn:

      • How Strategic Alliances can uplevel your business overnight
      • The 6 Keysyou must have with a potential partner to create a thriving partnership
      • The biggest challenges in creating strategic alliances (and how to avoid them so you quit wasting time and energyand start seeing results sooner)
      • Tried and true, proven best practicesfor creating sustainable strategic alliances

        Free Your Clients of Negative Beliefs, Painful Memories, 
        and Emotional Triggers

        Description of Webinar

        This is an experiential journey that may feel like a combination of interactive guided imagery, somatic sensing and creative play. Participants close their eyes, and dip into a relaxing process of allowing their imagination to connect with resources, engage in dialogue, find emotions in their bodies and learn techniques for releasing those emotions verbally, visually and kinesthetically.

        RIM (Regenerating Images in Memory) is a tool that produces fast, easy, sustainable results freeing us of limiting beliefs and memories, empowering us to live our best lives. When we create a shift in perspective, we rely on will-power to create new behaviors. RIM goes deeper than a perspective-shift and actually changes how we feel instead of how we think. This makes change easier and often instantaneous.

        Neuroscience confirms that emotions occur in the body and when we resist what we’re feeling, those emotions stay stuck with us. What we resist persists. Because our nervous system imprints an imagined experience similarly to an actual experience, we can re-generate emotional body memories to create neurologically-rooted positive endings to old stories, without reliving the old hurt and pain. As with many coaching tools, RIM may have therapeutic benefits, yet the practice is NOT therapy. No special education or background is required to learn these skills.

        What you will learn:

        • Build your confidence in working with and allowing strong emotions. 
        • Learn how discoveries in neuroplasticity make anything possible for your clients. 
        • Expand your ability to serve as a neutral witness, allowing your client deeper discovery.
        • Create deeper awareness of underlying issues and limiting beliefs.
        • Discover the awareness connection to Emotional Intelligence

          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!
