March 2022 - The Future of Coaching: Change Agent

by Coaching Out of the Box®

As the coaching community begins to embrace diversity in coaching, it will need to embrace its role as a change agent as well. “Coaching is not seen as neutral; it either supports the status quo or creates critical awareness necessary to change it”, states Charmaine Roche and Jonathan Passmore in their recent article Racial Justice, Equity and Belonging in Coaching.

In coaching, our opportunity to change the status quo is by identifying and exploring the dimensions of difference within your client. Whether these are dimensions of diversity or cultural differences, this discussion gives deeper and greater context to the client's lived experiences. In this way, the client can determine whether those differences may or may not have an impact or meaning in the context of their future life. This is embracing diversity in coaching. — Patricia A. Lee, ACC READ MORE...

Boundaries are essential to a healthy relationship with any client. Sometimes coaches allow problematic client behaviors to continue for fear of upsetting, or even losing, the client. This sets a precedent that can lead to bigger problems down the road.

You need to decide, as the coach, what boundaries are important to you. Identify comfortable physical, mental, emotional and spiritual limits before starting out with clients. And for when you do start, here are 6 ways to set and preserve your boundaries. READ MORE...

January 2022 — First Coaching Tip of 2022

by Coaching Out of the Box®
image

Welcome to 2022

If lockdown, vaccinations, and social distancing, were no longer terms you used in 2022; What would you be talking about? What would you be thinking about?

2022 and your coach are inviting you to start exploring these two questions.

At first, resist looking for definitive answers, rather, see the trends or directions of your answers. Observe the themes of your thoughts and feelings. Is there a repetitive pattern? Are you starting to hear your dreams, hopes, and desires creep back in? Are you being drawn towards more responsibility, new or deeper relationships, balance, or love?

The secret to 2022, a six-year, is to Accept what is and build on itWritten by Merv Rogers, MCC, Chief Coaching Officer for Coaching Out of the Box® Read More...

 

A note from our CEO and Founder, Alison Hendren, MCC:

Welcome to 2022! This past year has seen no shortage of challenges, uncertainty, and change and now we are out of the gate and hurtling into 2022. In 2021 I found myself asking what I consider a hall of fame coaching question "What is the opportunity in this"? That question also supported our growth as the demand for coaching education continued both for those wanting to obtain a credential and for those wanting to add to their work and life toolkit. Our wonderful participants also surfaced an “opportunity” to make it as easy as possible for them to learn by developing “Porto” our new online learning platform plus cool digital materials too.

As 2022 unfolds here is what I encourage you to do and that is this, “Fully respond to what is coming at you”. AND may lots of good things come at you for 2022!
