September 12 Workshop 1:30-4:30

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

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.


Anyone who registered for the August Workshop will be given a credit to apply to a future ICF-NT event. 





















Welcome to August!

One of the goals of our chapter is ensuring that members and guests feel informed and welcome. The ICF-NT Ambassadors support this objective in many ways including welcoming members and guests at chapter meetings, calling members to promote chapter events, supporting outreach events and organizing the chapter’s annual holiday party. The group meets virtually on the last Monday of each month and meetings are open to all chapter members. Alma Weaver Jones and Dana Phillips co-chair the team and Judy Clothier coordinates many of the team’s efforts.
