"The Role of Psychological Safety in Training and Coaching for DEIB"
Presenter: Dr. Patrick Williams, MCC
Date and Time: May 17, 2021 from 4:00 - 5:00pm MT
Audience: Coaches and Coach educators
Emotional Intelligence has long been an important aspect to include and teach in Coach training and in coaching. But one cannot express their emotions and relationship triggers at work without Psychological Safety. This term was first coined in 1999 by Harvard business school professor, Amy Edmondson. This was rediscovered in a famous research study of effective teams by Google (the Aristotle Project) in 2012. To their surprise, the data showed it was not just "who” was put on a team with diversity in mind, but that the best teams were those with certain norms and behaviors, by far the most important of which was found to be psychological safety. Therefore, this presentation will impart new research and actions for ACTO organizations to embrace in their training. AND, it will also reveal the importance in the coaching relationship, given the 2021 competencies emphasis on Coaching Mindset and awareness of the client's and coach's emotions during coaching.

"The Untold Secrets About Assessments: Finding Clarity About Which One To Use"
Presenter: Judy Sabah, MCC
Date and Time: May 18, 2021 from 4:00 - 5:00pm MT
Audience: Coaches, Consultants, HR Professionals and anyone who wants to
know more about their clients or themselves.
In doing a search on the term "personality test" in Google, the results came back at 474,000,000 items. Wow! How do I get clarity about which one to use? When I first began coaching I was encouraged to use an assessment, and told it would be another income stream for me. After over 25 years in my Coaching Practice I've found some insights about the who, what and when of assessments. With the challenging times we've been experiencing, assessments have the potential to be helpful and useful.
The intention is for participants to leave with more clarity and awareness about assessments and be able to make choices that support them in their practice, business or in knowing what assessment to participate in for themselves.

Presenter: Jenya Kuvshinova
Date and Time: May 20, 2021 from 7:00 - 8:00pm MT
Audience: Anyone who wants to thrive through uncertainty.
This webinar is based on cyclical approach vs linear approach of how deep change happens. It introduces 4 stages of change: fruition, completion, gestation and creation named after nature seasons. Summer stage (fruition) is perceived as the only "normal" state of things and periods of uncertainty which are inevitable during the stage of gestation (winter) labeled as 'bad". We will touch on the meaning of all these stages but focus mostly on the time of uncertainty and how to approach it in a more helpful way, working with (not against) cycles.

Two distinct winter phases
Challenges that may arise in winter
Planting the seeds of a new vision

Presenter: Michele L. Walter, ACC, CPC, ELI-MP, JD, LL.M, Certified Mindful Meditation Teacher & Certified NUSHU Group Facilitator
Owner of Life From the Summit
Date and Time: May 21, 2021 from 4:00 - 5:00pm MT
Audience: Health and Wellness or Leadership
Compassion is our true nature. Yet we've been conditioned to believe that self-compassion will make us weak, passive, lazy, unmotivated, or more prone to self-pity. Science refutes all of those myths about self-compassion. Instead, we know that a self-compassion practice can support less rumination, stress, and anxiety, and allow for more strength, motivation, and well-being. Overall, self-compassion can open the door to more resilience.
This webinar will begin by focusing on mindfulness foundations, including what mindfulness is and is not, and the two components of mindfulness: awareness and compassion. We will then explore the benefits of a self-compassion practice, discuss the biggest challenges to self-compassion, and learn mindfulness practices for planting the seeds for self-compassion. We will end with a guided self-compassion meditation practice.

Worldwide Fact: 1 person out of 8 is a migrant; either internal migrant (8%) or international migrant (4%). (https://www.who.int/migrants/en/) USA Fact: in 2019, 14% of the US population were immigrants.

"Demystifying Presence: Embodied Awareness Generates Inspired Action"
Presenter: Robyn McCulloch, MS, MSC, PCC and Jennifer Reitz, MSC, PCC
Date and Time: May 23, 2021 from 1:00 - 2:00pm MT
Audience: Anyone who wants to lead themselves and others with greater capacity
This is an invitation to consider radical transformation in how you lead your life and lead others. We must cultivate and deepen our somatic intelligence for embodied use of self. In an era of transformative and traumatic disruptions, developing a centered presence is fundamental—a powerful presence invites authentic connection. Evolution requires courageously extending safety and belonging to others.
The upheaval of 2020 resulted in a universal legacy of contraction, an internal shaping that fuels
our reactive self. Rigorous and recurrent body-oriented practices re-shape and re-wire the triggered
brain. When musculature, organs, fascial and central nervous systems reorganize, novel ways of
"being" are accessed.
Purposeful alignment of thoughts, words, and actions with what we care about results in palpable congruence, or trustworthiness. This allows us to focus on what matters most. Mastery in maintaining equanimity under pressure grows. This is the most efficacious use of self. Holding our common humanity with dignity is essential.
