Coach Social Change
Develop the art and science of a growing professional skill set
You are here because you support others for a living. In helping professions, you don't work with machines, you work with humans - who are messy, imperfect, uncontrollable and unpredictable.
It's challenging when you’re juggling tasks and the people you serve. Sometimes it’s easier to just give answers or tell clients or team members what to do, rather than build their resourcefulness and self-determination.
But... you know what it’s like when people tell you what to do - there’s no buy-in, decreased trust, and less chance for actual follow-through.
Perhaps you’ve tried to slow down and help your client problem solve, but sometimes complexity and emotions get in the way. It ends up being more frustrating and energy draining.
Coaching skills are one of the most valuable tools you can have in these situations.
Hi, we are Nic & Janelle
Nic Etheridge Calder
We want to get you started on co-creating conversations, digging in on how you support others in facilitating their own growth, and sustainable change.
Coaching skills are becoming increasingly prevalent within organizations and for leaders. These skills are important for us to cultivate, especially in helping professions, because of how effective it is in supporting individual awareness, choice, and sustainable change for BOTH the coach and the coachee.
It’s time to build your skills in noticing and integrating what’s going on for you as much as the client, and in doing so, you’re able to show up the way you want with your clients. You’ll also learn how to be a part of your client's journey - not the hero of it, to alleviate the pressure for you to fix, and to empower the client to choose their own path and partner with them to get there.
We have a new format! Our lunch'n learns merged with our community of practice, and has become: Learn and Practice! Don't worry, they are still free, and are now 90 minutes with 60 minutes of training and discussion of a coaching skill, and an optional 30 minutes for practice for those who want to try coaching in a safe and fun space. Be prepared to come with your video on, and willing to participate.
The learn and practices are capped. If you have registered and are no longer able to make it, please cancel so someone else can attend.
