CCEUs: 1 Core Competency
September 11 ICF North Texas Workshop
Jump Start for a Powerful Coaching Session
MCC Panel: Judy Feld, Teresa Pool, Sara Smith
1:30 to 3:30 PM (Immediately following the luncheon program)
Workshop Price: $59.00
Remember that coaching session that limped along while you were frantically searching your mind for where to go next? Do your clients ever make excuses and disappear after a few sessions? The Coaching Agreement is the most critical, yet least practiced, core competency in our toolkit. The better the agreement, the better the flow of the coaching session, and the more powerful the outcomes for our clients.
Join us as three of our MCC Coaches, Judy Feld, Teresa Pool and Sara Smith, guide you in taking your coaching to the next level and discover “the thing beneath the thing” that makes all the difference for your client meeting their outcomes!
- How to use the session “agreement” to build a strong foundation for the coaching session and reaching results
- How a powerful coaching agreement can discover the “thing beneath the thing”, the real issue that the client wants from coaching
- The role of Coaching Presence, Active Listening and Powerful Questions in creating the coaching agreement
- What the coaching agreement sounds like at all three levels of ICF competency (ACC, PCC, MCC)
- How to use the agreement as a touchstone during the session to maintain focus
- Recognition: Listening for clues and synonyms for “stuck”
Bonus content: Embracing “Stuckness” – how to create a space of relaxed, fertile exploration when you and the client don’t know where to go next.
We encourage everyone who registers for the workshop to also attend the luncheon session since we'll build upon the lunch-time demo in the afternoon.
CCEUs: 2 Core Competencies.

If you are looking at the ICF North Texas as an organization to fill your coach training and networking needs, then the next few months will leave you overflowing. I’ll let you read the details elsewhere in the newsletter and on the website. Here are the highlights.
On Friday, July 31 there is a free webinar on Optimum Brain Performance. Tony Pottle, who is our August luncheon speaker, is offering this 30-minute sit-at-your-desk-and-learn opportunity.
On August 14, the monthly luncheon features Tony Pottle talking about The Neuroscience of the Coaching Conversation. The afternoon workshop (1:30 to 3:30) extends the topic to Using Neuroscience to Deepen the Coaching Conversation.
Less than a month later, on September 11, three of our North Texas MCC Coaches, Judy Feld, Teresa Pool and Sara Smith, join forces for both the luncheon and a workshop. The luncheon topic demonstrates the differences among the three levels of credentials and guides you to greater coaching mastery. The workshop focuses on Establishing the Coaching Agreement as a key part of reaching higher mastery levels with your coaching.
AND THEN, on October 1, there is a whole day’s worth of events on Prism.
I really want to talk about something else for a little bit. How are you feeding the coaching community that surrounds you?
ICF-North Texas is the core of the coaching community in our area. A community needs its population to be active. When you come to a luncheon, everyone benefits from your participation. You ask questions, share, and join in a positive fellowship. We welcome your participation in the luncheons, workshops, and webinars.
I ask you to think about paying forward to the other coaches in North Texas. As an organization, we are only as strong as our members are. As an organization, we want to hear what we can do to support you because we are committed to encouraging your growth in the community.
All of our learning avenues need volunteers. Have you raised your hand to help lately?
We hope to see you at some of our upcoming events. Until then, coach well!
By the way, have you taken your global survey on coaching? The International Coach Federation wants to hear from you, so please click here to respond.
