August 8, 2014 ICF-NT Chapter Meeting

 
The Power of NLP: Let's Play!
Speaker: Laurel Rolls

 

NLP, Neurolinguistic Programming, has been with us since the 80’s having been devised by Richard Bandler and John Grinder through the study of the success models of the best psychology practitioners who were getting extraordinary results with their clients. It is both an art and a science of human behavior, empowerment and effective communication.

There are many resources for learning NLP and it takes many hours to explore the foundations of NLP as well as instilling NLP at an unconscious competency. In today’s session we will experience some of the presuppositions, processes and techniques through active learning.

 

Three to Five General Session Learning Outcome:

1.  The art of building rapport and heightening our sensory acuity.

2.  Understanding how our clients uniquely process information.

3. Our words make a difference – listening for the word clues 

 

ICF Core Competencies Covered:

 # 3 - Establishing Trust and Intimacy

 # 4 - Coaching Presence

 # 5 - Active Listening

 # 6 - Powerful Questioning

The Power of Shifting and Anchoring States and Meaning – Let’s Play Some More!

Speaker: Laurel Rolls

Brief Description:   Our clients come to us from their worlds of stress, uncertainty, activity, demands, beliefs, emotions, thoughts and values and bring with them the state of mind and energy that has been forged by all of these factors.  OH…and we come to our clients the same way!

This workshop will focus on consistently bringing our best state and mindset to our clients as well as ways to quickly bring them to an open, creative state and mindset using some of the techniques and language of NLP.

 

Three to Five Workshop Learning Outcomes (if applicable):

1. Understanding without admiring or judging our own states and those of our clients

2. Mindset and how we process meaning are everything! – understanding how we assign meaning and the impact it has

3. Powerful shifting and reframing techniques using language and process

4. Anchoring resourceful states for ourselves as coaches and with our clients

 

ICF Core Competencies Covered:

# 3 – Establishing Trust and Intimacy

# 4 – Coaching Presence

# 5 – Active Listening

# 6 – Powerful Questioning

# 8 - Creating Awareness

# 9 – Designing Actions

Biography:

Laurel is the Founder and President of Laurel Rolls & Associates, a Business,

Professional and Executive Coaching firm dedicated to Inspire Possibilities...NOW!TM

Possibilities exist all around us…possibilities for our lives and possibilities for our

businesses and careers. All those things we miss when we stick with the familiar and operate on autopilot. Inspire Possibilities...NOW!TM breaks down the barriers of

convention and the blocks of limiting belief systems and behaviors. Inspire

Possibilities...NOW!TM is about reaching that next level of performance, satisfaction,

energy and success.

 

Through coaching and using many techniques (NLP, assessments, cognitive behavior, strategic questioning, positive psychology and many others), Laurel is able to guide her  clients through awareness of Limiting Beliefs, Behaviors, Blocks and Barriers (The 4 B’sTM) – the landmines keeping them from success and happiness – and eliminate them.

 

 


 


 


Welcome to July!

Several of our recent Chapter programs have focused on developing coaching skills and the response has been very positive. Many thanks to our chapter members who have generously shared their coaching expertise through our 2014 luncheon and workshop programs: Judy Feld, Jayne Gardner, Teresa Poole, Jeannine Sandstrom, and Sara Smith.

 

Our effort to expand our chapter reach across DFW through our Social Learning Events is going well and we look forward to continuing these in the fall. Thank you, Debjani Biswas, Jim Cooper and Jude Olson for sharing your expertise through these forums.

 

Thanks also to Randy Fernandez, VP of Programs, and the Program committee: Geri England, Erika Horton, Catherine Oleksiw, and Jude Olson for bringing us a range of informative and interesting topics.

 

Our July chapter program continues the skill development theme. Claire Billingsley has brought her experience as a performer and instructor with improv comedy to her coaching. At our July 11 chapter meeting she will present “Applying Improv Skills to Coaching and Group Processes” and will follow this with a workshop on the same topic.

 

Those seeking the PCC certification should note that The International Coach Federation (ICF) recently announced some changes to how assessors will evaluate PCC applicant recordings. When coaches apply for the PCC Credential, they submit a recorded coaching session. The indicators that assessors use when listening to the recordings are now more specific and geared to the PCC level of coaching. ICF designed these to support consistent evaluations and help assessors provide concrete, specific and useful feedback to candidates. Note that the ICF competencies are not changing. Learn more about these new PCC markers here.

 

One of our 2014 goals is to ensure that new chapter members feel welcome and find ways to connect to people, resources, and learning opportunities right from the start. To that end Tom Donaldson has taken the lead in creating the “Connector” program to match new members with experienced members. We are ready to roll out this program. Several chapter members have signed up to be Connectors and we thank you for being at the forefront of this initiative. With 15 new chapter members, year to date, we anticipate needing even more Connectors through the remainder of the year. Read Tom’s article on Page 4 of this newsletter to learn more. If you would like to get to know new members and help them maximize their ICF-NT membership, please talk to Tom. Welcome to our new members; you’ll be meeting your ICF-NT connector soon.
