July 31 ICF North Texas Webinar
Optimum Brain Performance
By Tony Pottle
Don’t miss this bonus free webinar
Friday, July 31
12:30 – 1:00 p.m. (CDT)
 
Why is it that some days we are effortlessly at the top of our game, and other days it takes tremendous effort just to get out of bed?

In this free 30 minute online webinar, Tony will explore an area of the brain most critical in our day-to-day performance and four principles on the path to optimal brain performance.

This will lay the foundation for the luncheon presentation and workshop about using neuroscience to deepen the coaching conversation.

You will even discover one trick to increase your IQ by 5 to 15 points.

For those of you who want to participate in this webinar, go to www.academy-bbl.com and in the message box of the “Get in Touch” form, enter "I want to attend the free ICF-NT webinar."

August 14 ICF North Texas Coaches Luncheon Program

The Neuroscience of the Coaching Conversation
By Tony Pottle 

Our August 14 luncheon features Tony Pottle, Chief Development Officer and founding partner at the Academy of Brain-based Leadership (ABL). ABL works with the world's largest international database of the human brain and some of the most brilliant scientists to bring insights into the human brain, including a direct, brain-based leadership assessment. Tony has a personal vision of reaching millions of people through personally touching thousands of lives.
 
Program Description:

 A new era has arrived. Neuroscience discoveries about the brain and mind are starting to unlock the untapped capacity. In a world with greater demands, less time and more distractions, understanding your brain and mind is the new competitive edge.
 
We will explore the basic organizing principle of the brain and why it matters. We'll take a look at what happens in the brain when we are having coaching conversations. We will also dive into astounding insights showing why change is so hard for our clients. In an interactive and participative approach, you'll experience biases and explore ways to mitigate them.

Program Outcomes:

  • Understand the brain's basic organizing principle and the implications for day-to-day interactions and activities
  • Increase Coaching Presence by knowing how to be more fully conscious and how to get an effective relationship with the client from the start
  • Discover what gets in the way of Communicating Effectively, including the impact to Active Listening, Powerful Questions and Direct Communication
  • Use a brain-friendly way to create awareness

Using Neuroscience to Deepen the Coaching Conversation

Knowledge is power only when we can put it to work. With a basic understanding of the brain and mind from the luncheon presentation, this workshop will now introduce practical tools to use. We will explore the six levers that allow people to perform at their peak. Or, if not handled well, compromise their ability to think clearly—even dropping their intelligence by 20 percent.

 

Workshop Description:

Along with having a deeper understanding of themselves and others, we will also introduce the 17 brain capacities needed to perform well.

 

Workshop Outcomes

  • Understand how to more quickly create a safe, supportive environment that produces ongoing mutual respect, trust and direct communication 
  • Understand the importance from a brain perspective of establishing a coaching agreement 
  • Understand the two major brain networks, the types of situations each are most effective in, and how to switch them on to have more effective presence, more focused listening, and more powerful questions
  • Understand brain capacities and their impact to coaching and performance
  • Discover a new tool to increase your coaching business

Hello Coaches,

 

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!
