Overcoming The Immunity to Change: The 3 Steps NOT Taken That Cause Personal and Organizational Change Efforts to Fall Short
Presenter: Ingrid Martine
Overview: In this program based on the ground-breaking mind-mapping model developed by Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey of Harvard and of Minds at Work, participants will gain a new perspective of the mysteries of change—what prevents it and what enables it. They will experience a concrete tool for accessing their own and others’ capacity to overcome the limitations and blind spots of people’s current ways of making sense of their world.

Presenter: Ingrid Martine
Helping Clients See the Invisible: Their Immunity to Change Plus 2 Unconventional Steps to Overcome It
Overview: This workshop takes participants through a revolutionary 5-step mind-mapping process developed by Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey of Harvard and of Minds at Work. It begins with a review of the conceptual underpinnings of this powerful and complex learning process that uncovers why people’s failure to accomplish goals they deeply yearn for actually makes perfect sense. In order to see the source of what has been preventing desired change, participants will create their own map for a goal that has been important to them but whose accomplishment has eluded them. Once they see the source, the approach guides participants on a new path to accomplishing it.
Three to Five Workshop Learning Outcomes:
- 1. Participants will uncover the mind-set (the one big “thing”) that keeps them from making a change they have wanted to make but which has proven resistant to their best strategies.
- 2. Participants will learn a new strategy to take effective action toward making the change.
- 3. Participants will be able to design the next authentic action they will take to test the validity of the assumption that has kept them from making the desired change previously identified.
- 4. Participants who are coaches will be able to articulate implications and applications to work with their clients.
Time: 2.5 hours

Welcome to October!
September’s meeting on coaching assessments and tools was highly attended, informative and fun. Speaking of tools, Coaching World is a free quarterly online magazine produced by the International Coach Federation. Issues are full of insightful articles, videos, case studies, and research designed to inform coaching practices, inspire new ideas, and offer tools. Click here for a look at the most recent issue, and to subscribe go to ICF’s link.
This month, chapter member Ingrid Martine, MA, PCC, will be discussing a topic at the core of coaching—change. “Overcoming The Immunity to Change: The 3 Steps NOT Taken That Cause Personal and Organizational Change Efforts to Fall Short” will be the focus of Ingrid’s October 10 lunch meeting discussion. She’ll continue this subject with an afternoon workshop “Helping Clients See the Invisible: Their Immunity to Change, Plus 2 Unconventional Steps to Overcome It.” You can earn 3.5 core competency CCEUs from these two programs.
The Board has made some changes to the Chapter Bylaws. One of these changes was to re-institute the president-elect position to provide for greater continuity. The Board is pleased to announce that Neil Phillips, PhD, PCC, has been named President-elect and will be the 2015 Chapter President. Neil brings several years of Board experience and chapter involvement. He has held the roles of VP Technology, VP Social Media/PR, and Prism Vice Chair. Other changes to the Bylaws were made to clarify and simplify some processes and language. You can read more about the changes on Page 4 of the October Newsletter. The current Board will approve the final slate of 2015 nominees for the Board of Directors at its October meeting, and will present the slate to the membership for approval. We plan to announce the new Board at our November chapter meeting.
Thanks for your support, and we look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event.
