Coach the Person, Not the Problem: Brain Hacking – Finding Treasures in the Box

A webinar with Dr. Marcia Reynolds on Wednesday, 11 November 2020, 8PM – 9PM SG/HK time.

Does your coaching ever feel like it is going in circles and you don’t know how to get it back on track? How can coaches make sense of client’s stories? What happens when coaches receive rather than judge what they hear?

What is the secret to getting clients to hear themselves, to think about what they are saying without being trapped in the box? What questions can we ask to create the shift in awareness that resolves the issues that will prompt new actions in the client?

At this Power Hour, learn from the coaching guru and author of “Coach the Person, Not the Problem” on what holds the clients’ stories together, and then uncover the treasures that will free clients to take meaningful actions with courage and ease. You will receive the following key takeaways:

  1. How we create the stories we live by, and how coaching shifts the stories so we shift our thoughts and behaviors.
  2. Make the shift from horizontal to vertical coaching, including how simple shifts can make big changes in client stories.
  3. Getting clear on direction of the coaching session and how to track progress even when the direction changes.
  4. Practices to recognize and regulate your own emotional responses while adapting to different personality and cultural styles.
