    • Via Zoom Webinar


    ICF Philadelphia is excited to announce we will be offering Coaching Supervision as part of our 2020 Community of Practice series. Ken Giglio, Principal of Mindful Leadership Consulting, and a certified coach supervisor, will be leading supervision groups for external and internal coaches based on his Tri-Lens Coaching Supervision Model™. The separate groups for internal and external coaches will be tailored toward the unique challenges that come with coaching situations for coaches working with leaders internally and those working with clients externally. These monthly virtual meetings for each group will be held for 1.5 hours each. 

    Coaching Supervision is a collaborative learning practice to continually build the capacity of the coach through reflective dialogue for the benefit of the coaches, their clients, and their organizations. (adapted ICF definition). Group supervision uniquely provides a space for collective reflection and learning. Coaches explore the depth and breadth of their coaching work through three lens—self as coach; relationship with the client; influence of the system/s in which the client works. The group experience is designed to build a coach’s confidence, competence, connection, creativity, and compassion.

    The ICF recognizes coaching supervision as part of a coach’s  continuing professional development, and up to 10 hours of coaching supervision (delivering and/or receiving) will be counted toward Continuing Coach Education requirements. (Note: ongoing coaching supervision is a required practice by European and Australian coaching bodies, and it is also required by a growing number of corporations for coaches to obtain work.)

    Pre-work for Group Coaching Supervision:

    Please come prepared to present to the group a coaching case or theme/s from your coaching practice that you are curious about, have questions around, or may be struggling with. Reflect on how this coaching situation is impacting you and your relationship with your coaching client, and also reflect on how the system in which the client works might be impacting the coaching engagement. Ask yourself,

    • What am I noticing?
    • What am I sensing in my body and my surroundings?
     

    Bio:  Ken Giglio is Principal of Mindful Leadership Consulting, a global leadership consulting and executive coaching firm, with over 130 coaches and coach supervisors partnering with top organizations globally. Ken leads his team in developing mindful leaders to be attentive and present within themselves, with others, and with the systems in which they work.

    ICF Philadelphia Presents....

    Virtual Cafe: How Curiosity Can Spark Your Coaching

    Presented by Greg Knight

    August 11, 2020

    7:00 - 8:30 PM

    CCEUs offered: 1.5 Core Competency CCEUs

    Genuine curiosity is light, open, and without concern for outcome. Curiosity is a natural human quality, but because of its care-free nature, it can be difficult to bring it into coaching work. However, curiosity is critical for fostering real change when working with other people. In this class, we will look at some of the common barriers to our curiosity, and how we might support curiosity more in ourselves and in our coaching.

    • Learn a basic meditation for settling into openness.
    • Practice open ended listening.
    • Gain insight into habits that limit genuine curiosity.
    • Begin to taste the effect of real curiosity in your actions

    About our Presenter

    Greg Knight is a certified Diamond Approach Teacher. The Diamond Approach is a psychologically informed spiritual teaching that combines meditation, embodiment practices and spiritual inquiry. Greg works with individuals and groups on the East Coast and online.

    The Coach as Speaker

    How to Create a Masterful Speaking Presence

    This will be virtual until further notice

    September 17, 2020

    7:00 - 8:30 PM 

    (.75 Core Competencies and .75 Resource Development CCEUs)

    Speaking to groups is the number one way to build a coaching practice, but only if who you’re being in front of the room is as present, authentic, and sincere as when you’re interacting with clients.  But, what’s the key to making it happen?  

    Never stop being a coach!  Apply the same core competencies to speaking as you do to your coaching.  Create a safe and supportive environment in your room that honors your audience’s agenda.  When you’re open and flexible in the moment, you create a dynamic synergy with your audience.

    In this highly interactive and thought-provoking presentation, you will learn:

    • How to manifest a presence that’s warm and genuine while being profoundly audience-focused and intensely purposeful.
    • How the message you send goes beyond the words you speak.
    • What goes into creating a compelling, interactive presentation that evokes insight and encourages people to expand their thinking.
    • How to provide masterful coaching as you engage audience members.
    • How to make an offer from the stage that speaks to the needs of your audience members and lands like an opportunity for further exploration and growth … and how to stay unattached as you do it!


    The bottom line:  Talking with a client in a coaching setting is very much like speaking to a group of people you don’t know … if you approach it the right way.

    Denise Hedges is a business development coach and speaking coach with over 30 years experience in sales and marketing.  She specializes in training and coaching business owners to market themselves more effectively using the strategy of speaking.  Denise works with coaches to help them move past any doubt about sales and marketing, so they can attract more clients and make more money!  

    Denise is a Professional Certified Coach and a member of the Coach University Faculty. She trains personal and business coaches all over the world!

    How to Set Pricing & Session Structure for your Coaching Packages

    September 23, 2020

    7:00 - 8:30 PM

    When it comes to pricing and packaging their coaching services, most coaches struggle with what to do.

    There’s a huge dilemma of wanting to be paid well for coaching, but you worry that if your prices are too high, no one will hire you.

    Not to mention how to create a package… do you offer three different packages and if so, how many sessions in each. Do you discount or offer special pricing?

    A lack of clarity in your pricing and packaging comes across as a lack of confidence in your services and keep most coaches from asking for business in the first place.

    There's a better, clearer way to price and package your services and this webinar not only shows you what to do but why we do it.

    Points covered:

    • The background of why what I am teaching works
    • Pricing: what works and what doesn’t
    • Why it is so important to understand WHY we structure and price this way
    • Session Structure, ONE PRICE – ONE PACKAGE
    • NO DISCOUNTS- NEVER and why
    • NO REFUNDES EVER and why
    • How much should you charge?
    • The business model behind it
    • Setting clients up for long term work together
    • OUR job from the start and EVERY session

    Speaker: Jeff St. Laurent


    Jeffrey St Laurent took the leap and launched his full-time seminar & coaching business in 2004 after graduating from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC).

    Since then he has devoted well over 9,000 coaching hours with clients and is a highly sought after presenter and business coach.

    Jeffrey is the author of the highly inspiring book “Being Fulfilled” as well as five other personal and business development audio/video training programs that benefit entrepreneurs at all levels of conscious development.

    In 2014 Jeff shifted his focus to Helping Coaches Transition to a Full-Time Business as he saw a huge need because most coaches struggled. Now as a mentor coach with his business SellingCoaching.com he is dedicated to showing coaches how to structure their business from the ground up and get comfortable with the skillset of selling.

    Jeff’s WHY through it all is simple: “To be a part of people’s success.”

    November 18, 2020

    7:00 - 8:30 PM

This webinar will help you relax with selling and really clear up your role in this process. As a result you can leave her with more confidence and use-now methods that work!

    Points Covered:

    • Turning our passion of coaching into an income source
    • The natural evolution of getting clients
    • Understanding we are a full-time sales person
    • Breaking down selling to better understand
    • Identifying need and timing
    • Becoming a master asker

    The presentation will last 60 minutes and will be followed by a 30 minute open Q&A. Participants will receive 1.5 Resource Development CCEU.
