Creating Trust and Intimacy is, at its core, about creating trust and safety. So, how do you as a coach create trust and safety throughout the entire coaching meeting? How can you create the atmosphere that invites your client to share deeply and how is that demonstrated in your coaching? How would an assessor know that you are creating trust and intimacy? This core competency is also about vulnerability, with both the client and the coach. How can you as a coach be vulnerable? What beliefs might you have to challenge? If you can’t be vulnerable, what message are you sending your clients?
In this tele-class we will review Core Competency #3 and the PCC Markers and how they illustrate the sub-categories of the third Core Competency as well as have a dialogue around demonstrating this very important aspect of great coaching. As Thomas Leonard said, “The relationship is much more important than the outcome.” So, how can you expand your skills beyond the beginning PCC level, so that you become more proficient and at ease?
Objectives: 1. Learn the 3 PCC Markers for creating trust and intimacy 2. Develop proficiency in thoroughly fulfilling Core Competency #3 by using the Markers. 3. Explore ways to consistently demonstrate rapport throughout the coaching conversation 4. Highlight ways to support, acknowledge and respect your client’s work during the coaching meeting 5. Explore vulnerability for both client and coach
