A SNEAK PEEK AT 2017

image

Here we are ready to wrap up 2016 and what a tremendous year it was for the advancement of coaching and for Coaching Out of the Box® (COTB). I want to take this opportunity to pause and reflect, for just a moment, on what 2016 has meant to me personally and to the extended COTB team.

Over this past year we continued to see and hear more and more about the positive impact coaching is having on individuals and organizations, literally around the world. This is tremendously gratifying as I reflect on our MISSION to see to it that EVERYONE has coaching skills. As I write this there have now been over 17,000 individuals in 38 countries who have participated in the 5/5/5 Coaching Skills Program™. When you include the number of participants across all our coaching skills development programs, that number is even higher! And while I am proud of these numbers, what is exciting and where my passion lies is in seeing the positive impact coaching skills and being coach like is having on individuals in both their professional and personal lives.

To that end, the team at COTB would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to each one of you that we have had the opportunity to engage with over this past year whether it was in a course, a webinar, social media or in person. Coaching is about relationships and we truly value the relationship we have with you.

You should know that while 2017 is still a month away, we are already in full planning mode to bring you even more in the way of coaching skills training, support and resources. And we are not wasting a minute. Our Winter 2017 courses begin the first week of January. Advanced Coaching Skills Practicum starts on January 3 followed by Personal Groundwork for Coaching™ on January 4. If you are an experienced coach looking to add to your skills and toolkit one of these courses may be just what you are looking for.

Then in February, and back by popular demand, our Fast Track to ICF Certification gets underway on February 1. This program offers all courses needed to achieve the required 60 hours of Approved Coach Specific Training Hours for ACC accreditation within just six months.

A sneak peek at our first webinar of the new year, scheduled for January 18, will cover one of our most popular topics and complement our Fast Track Course. The webinar topic is ICF Certification. If you are interested in this topic, mark your calendars. Full details and registration will be announced in our next newsletter.

We at COTB wish you a great end to 2016.

COACHING INSPIRATION:
GOAL SETTING

In keeping with this month's theme of End of Year Review, Recap and Reflection we thought it was the perfect time to mention the importance of goal setting. As we know, many New Year's resolutions are made and broken but a well thought out, achievable goal is important in setting you up for success. We wrote about goal setting in a previous blog article, and here is a bit of what we said:

If you look up the word "goal", you will find this definition: the object of a person's ambition or effort; an aim or desired result. In order to get where one wants to go, they need to be able to define where that is. Do they want to be their own boss? Manage the company? Have a family? Own a house? No matter what it is they want to achieve, they have to be able to set up the path to get there - their goals. These goals help one focus on what it is they want and research shows links between goals and performance, especially in relation to business. Setting and achieving obtainable goals can lead to feelings of positivity and success, which builds confidence and can create further productivity.

Let's Keep the Coaching Conversation Going
 


Last month we tried something new during our free webinar: live coaching demonstrations with real coaches and real coaching situations. While there is always a little uncertainty in trying something new - particularly with a live audience - we knew the concept was on target. And I am both delighted and relieved to say that the response has been fantastic!  In fact, we've received many requests for more.

 

We are hearing that you want to know:

  • What happens next with the coachees?
  • How do the coaches continue the coaching conversation from where the left off?
  • How do the coaches take the information they learned and use their 5/5/5 Coaching Skills to help move the coachees to the next step?

To answer those questions and continue to harness the power of observation as a learning tool we are bringing to you 5/5/5 Live Coaching Demos: Part 2.

 

During Part 2 you will have the opportunity to observe:

  • What steps coachees Carol and Leah have taken since their first coaching session
  • How the coaches use their 5/5/5 Coaching Skills to build on the coaching conversations they had during their first coaching session
  • How the coaches use their listening and questioning skills to dive deeper with their coachee
  • How the coaches continue to build trust with their coachees


If you weren't able to join us for October's webinar, don't worry! The learning will be just as powerful for you, and remember that you can view past webinars by clicking here.

 

Be sure to join us

on November 23rd for Part 2!

Coaching Demos
 
The 5/5/5 Live:
Real Live Coaching Demonstrations
 

Developing a new skill whether in sport, work or hobby can be both exhilarating and at times intimidating, especially when it takes us out of our comfort zone. We can watch the training videos, take the classes and practice, practice, practice but there comes a time when we need to take the plunge and put our new skill to work. But taking this plunge can cause anxiety and trepidation especially when the stakes are high - for example when it involves our career or important relationships.

 

So how do you move from training wheels to flying solo with your newly developed skill? As with many things the hardest part is often just getting started. We hear from both new and seasoned coaches that there is tremendous value in practice but at some point they must take a leap of faith in order to put their new coaching skills to work with real coachees. Taking this leap often means getting beyond the idea that they need to master coaching first and not being afraid to 'mess up'.

 

We also hear that when coaches have the opportunity to see how others are coaching it can often lead to an aha moment. When observing others coach, they can see the skills used and start to really 'get' the power of coaching. They understand that coaching doesn't have to be an hour long conversation. They see how being coach-like and developing the ability to respond and coach on-the-fly is golden. To support you in building your confidence and taking that leap boldly we've put together our next webinar where we will show you The 5/5/5 Coaching Skills™ live and in action. This will be a unique learning opportunity and a lot of fun in the process. 

 

 

 

Join us in this lively webinar to watch coaches in action and learn:

 

  • How coaching can happen in a short space of time and provide value
  • The different styles of coaching and the importance of being authentic
  • Commonly used coaching skills with tips and pointers on how to incorporate into your coaching

Each real demonstration will be followed by feedback and discussion to enhance the learning experience.

 

 

Be sure to join us in our next FREE webinar where you'll see live coaching demos that will give you examples of how it can be done and help build your coaching skills and confidence.

Rapid Change
 
Coaching for Sustainable Change
 

Change. It seems that now, more than ever, the saying "change is the only thing that is constant" is ringing true for just about everyone. Organizations, the workforce, the type of work being done and the methods used to get work done are all changing at an ever increasing rate. In this environment what is needed is a way to lead that will produce positive and sustainable change; a leadership approach that is adaptable to internal and external change.

 

 

We believe that when coaching is an integral part of leadership, where the coachee is supported in deeper discovery and new awareness, is exactly what is needed for sustainable change. Why? Because this method involves a continuum of conversations and interactions between coach and coachee that are specifically designed to help the individual tap into his/her own internal resources and potential to find practical strategies and solutions to specific challenges. The coachee is uncovering his/her potential to achieve peak performance.

 

This is why we, at Coaching Out of the Box®, put an emphasis not only on the skills and steps used in coaching but on the fundamental principles and tools necessary to support the coachee's in their discovery and awareness process. Over and over again we are told by participants in our coaching programs how profoundly their lives have been impacted.

 

 

 

In order to create sustainable change you need know how to:

 

  • Get to the root source
  • Bring awareness to areas a coachee may be blind to seeing
  • Identify resistance to change – what to listen for and questions to ask
  • Coach someone who is playing a role that no longer serves them
  • Identify what your coachee is passionate about and how to step into that

 

Without this work, and the courage and confidence to do it, not much will happen. Yes, there may be some immediate short term results but for long term sustainable change you have got to do the deeper dive and you’ve got to come to coaching with a mindset that will support it.

 

 

 

In our next FREE webinar we will be discussing this very important topic and supporting you in understanding what is required to coach for sustainable change.

 

 
  • If you are interested in supporting long-lasting positive change through coaching, be sure to join us in our next FREE Webinar: Coaching for Sustainable Change, Wednesday, September 21 @ 11 am Pacific / 2 pm Eastern. In this one hour webinar you will learn what coaching for sustainable change really means and why coaching is one of the most effective and valuable tools for dealing with change. Whether you are new to coaching and the concept of sustainable change or an experienced organization leader this webinar will show you how to make long-lasting and positive impacts through coaching.
