Friday, April 13th - Improvisation for Coaches



Like all humans, we coaches are creatures of habit, subject to our own filters, learning, egos, and blind spots. How can coaching professionals—from the newest to the most seasoned—step out of our default patterns and comfort zones to truly dance in the moment? In this highly experiential workshop, coaches will learn the basic rules and skills of improvisation, developing core competencies in an entirely new way. By letting go of control and engaging in true collaboration, coaches will experience greater freedom, creativity, listening, presence, power, and willingness to take risks and go deeper into the unknown. Coaches will walk away with enhanced skills, a greater awareness of their personal blind spots and growth opportunities, and a toolkit of exercises to use for their own continued development and with clients.

Friday, March 9th - The 3 Vital Questions™ for Work and Life


3 Vital Questions can help gauge whether you are moving toward or away from empowered living and healthy relationships with yourself and others.

These questions help awaken your inner observer so you can choose more powerfully and reduce your reactive tendencies.  In this session we will review and learn how to apply these question with your clients and/or your own life. 

The 3 Vital Questions to ask yourself in any moment are:
  1. Where am I putting my focus? Am I focusing on problems or on outcomes?  A focus on problems engages the Victim Orientation.  When you upgrade to a Creator Orientation, you focus on outcomes.
  2. How am I relating (to others, my experience and myself)? Am I producing or perpetuating drama or am I empowering others and myself to be more resourceful, resilient and innovative? These ways of relating flow from the Orientation you adopt.  The Victim Orientation fuels the Dreaded Drama Triangle (DDT)™, while a Creator Orientation fosters TED* (*The Empowerment Dynamic)™.
  3. What actions am I taking? Am I merely reacting to the problems of the moment or am I creating by taking Baby Steps – including the solving of problems – in service to envisioned outcomes?  Dynamic Tension provides a powerfully simple framework for planning and taking action toward outcomes – big and small.
Chris Nagel is the Director for The Cleveland Clinic Leadership Experience in the Global Leadership and Learning Institute at the Cleveland Clinic.  Chris has been a thought leader within the organization to integrate Serving Leader work into the culture in the Cleveland Clinic Health System locally and abroad.

1.5 Core Competency CCEs (pending)
Indiana Wesleyan University @ 4100 Rockside Road

Our 2018 program theme is Coaching In & Out. “In” refers to being fully present with our clients IN the coaching conversation, where our best tool is the core competency of Powerful Questioning.  Asking questions to clarify goals, shift client perception, take action, or simply out of curiosity provides space for clients to focus on getting what they really want.  

Powerful Questions evoke in our clients new ways to think about their situation, themselves, or how they work with others. 

Our presenter, Sherry Greenleaf, will lead you through questioning exercises that you will want to use with your clients.  She will offer several frames to help you dive more quickly and deeply into what really matters for your clients.  During the meeting you will practice these tools on each other (of course!).

What you’ll get from the session: 
  • Understand the distinction between asking “what” and “how” questions versus the “why,” and how to reframe questions that go deeper.
  • Questions you can use to dig more deeply.
  • How to use questions to close a coaching session and focus your client on what’s next.
  • Practice in the moment, plus some new questions you can take home and use immediately!

About Our Presenter

Sherry is a Registered Corporate Coach (RCC) through the Worldwide Association of Business Coaches (WABC) and is one of the lead certifiers of new RCC coaches in the United States. She serves as a mentor coach to RCC coaches and believes that behavior speaks louder than words.
