    Description of Webinar

    Today as ever is the need for us to get together to have an open conversation to address racial injustice and role of coaching in igniting and impacting the change in the society.

    We invited three panelists from different ways of life: D&I corporate leader, a coach, and an equity trainer to share their perspectives on the racial justice and ways we can affect it.

    This is your opportunity to have a direct dialogue with panelists, ask your questions, and interact in smaller groups.

    This is our opportunity:

    • to continue the dialogue on the racial justice;
    • to educate ourselves about racism and its’ attributes;
    • to share our experience and learn from each other.

      Rashmi Dixit, MS, PCC, coach

      My commitment is to support coaches to bring their whole authentic selves into the practice of coaching. I teach coaching in a way that creates transformational spaces for healing self and communities and I do so by bringing a systemic and social consciousness lens to coaching.

      I am an Asian-Indian, cis-gendered, heterosexual woman who uses she/her/hers as pronouns. I was born in a tiny mud house with hay roof in rural India. My first memories are of running amok golden fields and sleeping under open starlit skies. I received my schooling and Master’s degree in Mumbai and I am currently based in Portland, Oregon. I have had the privilege to travel across the world and learn from stories and experiences of people whom I met.

      I am a transformational PCC coach, a mentor for coaches, facilitator of group processes and a faculty member at Leadership That Works. I have worked in sub-committees in ACTO to develop and design new curriculum with social consciousness and systemic lens. I currently serve on the board of ICF-Oregon as Director Coach Education.

      In past 20 years of my career I have worked with several non-profit and for-profit organisations to discuss, debate and design some of the most detailed strategies to bring about cultural shifts and coaching culture for leaders. https://rashmidixit.com

      Presented by

      Tara Butler Floch, PCC, CPCC

      CCEUs 1.5  Resource Development

      Hosted by ICF Washington State

      Description of Webinar

      In a world that is rapidly changing and full of ambiguity, coaching has never been more needed.  It is our opportunity as coaches to step up and help by supporting people through unprecedented times.  Tara will be sharing how her enrollment strategies can help you serve others powerfully while also providing the opportunity for the right prospects to work with you. 

      One of the biggest challenges that Coaches face is powerfully enrolling committed clients.  It may seem particularly daunting now with the amount of ambiguity in our world.  The key to powerful enrollment conversations is for coaches to showcase their coaching skills while simultaneously, organically lead the right client to see the huge value of working with them to help them bridge the gap between where they are and where they want to be.  If you want to have a sustainable, full practice full of committed clients then it’s key to master and love the art of client enrollment.  Unfortunately, most enrollment methods taught by the Marketing “Gurus” don’t work well for coaches, who want to have an authentic and genuine connection with their prospects and not be overtly “salesy”.  Conversely, giving away free sample sessions may give the prospective client a great coaching experience but rarely leads to a powerful conversation about working together.  This presentation Creating Captivating Breakthrough Sessions – How To Powerfully Enroll New Clients, even in an Uncertain World you will learn how to:

      • Create the coaching container to have deep learning and insight, and lead your prospect down a path to work with you, simultaneously
      • Create your own enrollment template using our methodology and process for client enrollment conversations
      • Frame your enrollment conversations to create clear expectations for the experience (no bait and switch!) 
      • Hold a perspective that serves your ideal outcome and serves the client
      • Handle and navigate sticky issues around money 
      • Get to a clear and powerful “yes” or “no” (no more wishy washy-ness!)

      Incorporate the following Core Competencies:

      • Establishing Trust & Intimacy with the client
      • Coaching Presence
      • Active Listening
      • Powerful Questioning 

      Whether you have been a coach for a year or a decade, there will be great nuggets for you to learn from this presentation.  This methodology works well for both coaching and consulting services and can be used effectively with either individuals or a corporate environment.  Whether you are a leadership coach and consultant, or a life coach, this methodology can be customized to create a powerful enrollment conversation that will create a powerful, committed “yes” from clients who you know are meant to work with you.
