Audience: Everyone who has been through the COVID19 Pandemic

The pandemic has made us realize that no matter who and where we are in life, we all face complex and seemingly never ending challenges. We feel like we are constantly in crisis managing mode. Sometimes a good day is simply surviving and managing the day-to-day challenges.

The good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way. There are practices that can help us not just survive, but thrive through challenges. Please join Julia Zhu Meade and Becky Magnotta as they share a simple but powerful framework to help you uncover the gifts from any challenge. Julia and Becky leverage their training in the Positive Intelligence work by Shirzad Chamine to create this explorative and experiential workshop facilitated with lightness and humor. You will walk away with a drastic shift in what challenges are, as well as an effective tool to rise to tough times, and become more creatively resourceful to cope with challenges. And did we mention that it will be fun too?

Patrick Williams 2021 140x160"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.

Presenter: Nigel Clayton, MCC
Date and Time: May 18, 2021 from 1:00 - 2:00pm MT

Audience: Coaches/Entrepreneurs

The challenges for the entrepreneur in these changing times are greater than ever before!

Being an entrepreneur is different than anything else in our society and understanding why is crucial to being able to help entrepreneurs. This 60 minute Zoom webinar will help those that either work with or want to work with entrepreneurs understand that difference and learn a new perspective on how the entrepreneurial world really works.

You will also learn a framework for entrepreneurs to help get them on track and keep them on track with the business they want to create. This is not a one size fits all linear process but a framework that is unique to each entrepreneur and will work in harmony when your are coaching them.

Judy Sabah 140x160 2021"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.

In this webinar we will discuss the benefits of group coaching and how working on ourselves in community is a one-of-a-kind opportunity. We will dive into what is possible with self-love and relationship coaching and what it looks like when we integrate personal projects into the group coaching experience.

I'm passionate about bringing people from all walks of life together to learn and grow by being vulnerable and sharing our stories. It is my belief that we can create a world of love, compassion, and celebration when we focus on loving ourselves and our relationships with others. I'd love to inspire people to prioritize their well-being, understand the importance of self-love, and how impactful community is in the coaching space.

Presenter:   Chris Coward, MSW, PCC
Date and Time: May 20, 2021 from 1:00 - 2:00pm MT

Audience: Leaders in organizations

The term "silo" has been kicked around in organizations to describe how separated different teams are from each other. The pandemic has unfortunately increased silo behavior. The consequences of silos are duplicate work, lowered employee engagement and morale, contradictions in organizational messaging and mission, and a decrease in trust across the organization. This webinar will provide practical approaches to team building using a coach approach - within your own team and across other teams as well.

"The Time Between Dreams: Navigating Uncertainty in Your Life and Work"
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.

Topics covered:
Brief description of 4 phases of personal growth
Two distinct winter phases
Challenges that may arise in winter
Planting the seeds of a new vision
Helpful "winter" activities.

Presenter:  Berthe (Betty) Stempfer, Ph.D.
Date and Time: May 22, 2021 from 1:00 - 2:00pm MT

Audience: Culturally Uprooted People

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. Have you been gone for so long that you feel like you no longer belong to your place of origin, and neither do you feel like you totally fit in your receiving place? What is this huge disconnect you are experiencing with your family, your friends? Do you feel lost, and you don’t know what to do??? You are not alone… At least 1 person out of 8 will face such identity crises due to cultural uprooting. 

In this webinar we will explore how coaching and positive psychology can help culturally uprooted people reconnect with what is essential to them, their core values and how coaching can assist them through the change process of redefining themselves and creating space and new foundations for growing new roots and connecting authentically with other.  In this webinar we will explore how coaching and positive psychology can help culturally uprooted people reconnect with what is essential to them, their core values and how coaching can assist them through the change process of redefining themselves and creating space and new foundations for growing new roots and connecting authentically with other.  Keywords: Identity – Authenticity – Cultural uprooting – Coaching – Positive Psychology Approach – Theory of changes.

Robyn McCulloch 140x160"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.
