April 10 ICF North Texas Luncheon Program

 Handling Difficult Coaching Situations: a “Power Paradox”

 
Presenter: Debjani Biswas, MBA, MSOD, PCC
 

Our April 10 Luncheon Program features Debjani Biswas, an international keynote speaker, thought leader, and author of Unleash the Power of Diversity (UPDIV), which is endorsed by Marshall Goldsmith (Thinkers50 Award Winner for Most Influential Leader Thinker in the World). Her original frameworks and concepts (The Five Judgments, Orchid Effect, and Singularity Dynamics) are being used in 23 countries. She is currently the Principal of Coachieve (www.coachieve.us) which specializes in leadership effectiveness.

 
Program Description:

 

Why are some coaching engagements and relationships inherently tougher than others? What can we do about it? How can we implement more effective approaches to this “Power Paradox”? The key is to maintain our coaching presence in the moment, take control of the situation, and bring ourselves and our clients back into a safer and more productive space.

 

Learning Outcomes:

 

In this highly interactive and exercise focused program we will practice asking powerful questions, active listening, and heightened self and client awareness. We will explore a step by step approach to handling difficult coaching scenarios.

  • Use Emotional Intelligence to recognize stressors and solutions in tense coaching situations
  • Learn how to connect with calm authentic power in the face of difficulties
  • Practice a new coaching framework applicable across multiple tough situations
  • Discover the impact of a “Power Paradox”: The Results – Effort U Curve

 Hello Coaches!

 

As I sat at the table for the March board meeting, I wished that there was an opportunity for everyone to see the plans and discussions for the ICF North Texas Chapter events coming up this year. You would be as excited as the board!

 

Beginning this month, we’re trying something new at our monthly luncheons. Table Talks will start at 11:10 AM and finish before the food is served. This month features Sara Smith having conversations with people about ICF Credentialing. If you’re interested, bring your questions and come early.

 

In April, Debjani Biswas is our featured luncheon speaker. In additional to being a coach and an insightful speaker, Debjani published her second book this last year, Unleash the Power of Diversity.

 

Block May 8 in your calendar right now for the North Texas luncheon. May brings Coaching Week. This is the ICF’s 20th Anniversary year and we want to celebrate by doing some special activities in May. Interested in pro bono coaching? The luncheon explores several avenues on that topic that you won’t want to miss.

 

Stayed tuned for April announcements about our Prism event that will take place this fall. Details are being finalized about the location, speaker, nomination process, and sponsorship opportunities.

 

And there’s more:

 

· Opportunities are being planned for emerging coaches.

· Training on the ICF core competencies for PCC and MCC coaches is being developed.

· There are more Regional Rendezvous networking events coming.

 

You’ll want to keep your eyes and ears tuned to ICF North Texas. We are working to grow coaching opportunities and your coaching businesses in North Texas.

 

See you at the luncheon.

 

Connecting,

 

Neil
