    The Revised ICF Competency Model introduced the foundational competency #2 "Embodies a Coaching Mindset" into the mix. This is a wonderful step forward in the world of professional coaching. Several of the new markers of competence can be developed through the regular practice of Reflective Coach Supervision*. Coach supervision has been a regular practice for our European counterparts for some time and is now slowly making its way into the Americas. This updated focus in the new competency model does not require coach supervision explicitly but it does require that the coach develop some form of reflective practice. My experience has been that Supervision is vital to my own growth and healthy functioning as a coach. It helps me to be more thoughtful in how I show up. It allows me to reflect on what happened for me in a recent session with a client and determine how I might move forward differently in the future. It helps me to have a more impactful relationship with my clients. All these lead to more effective coaching engagements.

    CCEUs: Amt TBD 

    Learning outcomes:

    • Articulate the difference between reflective supervision and mentor coaching
    • Describe the purposes of reflective supervision
    • Describe what supervision is and what it is not
    • Differentiate between group and individual supervision and reasons for each
    • Learn models for supervision that can also be utilized in your coaching practice

    From cavemen to cartoonists, human beings have understood the power of simple images to communicate big ideas. Each of us uses images to communicate every day; we text a photo to a friend, create a chart for a presentation, or draw a map on a napkin. We understand that using visual images allows us to communicate complex ideas quickly, compactly, and often without a language barrier. Using sketches is another way of reflecting, summarizing, and bringing to life important coaching communications. Drawing images, metaphors and analogies allows the coach and client to co-create awareness and understanding. Our brains see patterns and make meaning from visual input within milliseconds; we often “see” what we mean before we can say what we mean. The result is greater awareness and insight into a topic which enables transformation. Clients often keep the visual notes as reminders and cues to turn their insights into actions.

    In this workshop we will explore and practice several ways to incorporate images and visual elements into our coaching practice.

    CCEUs: 1.0 Core Competency

    The program includes:

    • an overview of visual coaching
    • practice of basic drawing elements and templates that are relevant to coaching
    • a coaching demonstration

    Employing visual tools in our coaching can increase our range and proficiency in core coaching competencies as well. For example:

    • Foundation: Coaching ethics and mindset are integrated into the visual coaching process.

    • Co-creating the relationship: The coach facilitates establishing and maintaining agreements assisting clients as they gain a clear visual representation of present state, ideal future state, milestones and potential barriers. Trust and safety are cultivated as the client drives the experience. Coaching facilitates safe, supportive, and creative collaborative partnership. The coach maintains full presence with client throughout this coaching process both in the traditional sense and as together coach and client “see” what they mean.

    • Communicates effectively: The coach communicates effectively by actively listening and evoking awareness both through dialogue and through flexibly and accurately capturing visual representations of the client and their world. This may result in profoundly evocative awareness.

    • Cultivating learning and growth: Integrations of new thoughts, feeling and actions into clients’ worldviews, paths forward, celebrations, and future planning can all be visually captured.

    Presenter Bio:
    Carla Yetter is a leadership development coach with a focus on mid-career professionals. Considering herself a ‘right-brained’ engineer, she combines her technical training, management and leadership experience with a love of visual expression to create a unique coaching experience. By co-creating sketches, mind maps, and diagrams, individuals and teams can process complex ideas efficiently and gain new insights that are not available through words alone. She started her work life as a chemical engineer. There she learned the power of diagrams and pictures to simplify complex manufacturing processes, foster understanding and accelerate problem solving. Throughout her career as a manager the power of pictures was equally effective for enabling individuals and teams to communicate effectively and generate shared vision. Today as a corporate executive she still reaches for a marker to help people “see” what they mean.

    “Demonstrates Ethical Practice” is ICF Core Competency number one for a reason: without an ethical underpinning to your work, all of the other competencies are compromised. The guidelines can seem clear-cut and unambiguous on paper, right? But you only have to have been coaching for a short time to realize that things can get a bit messy and the lines a little fuzzy out in the real world.

    CCEUs: 1.5 Core Competency

    This interactive session offers an in-depth critical review of the new ICF Code of Ethics and explores the many situations that challenge our relationship to that Code. Through the presentation of video interviews with a diverse group of experienced coaches, real-life examples of ethics in action, and peer learning, participants will engage with the content and one another to deepen their understanding of what it means to make ethical practices the foundation of their coaching work.

    3 Key Takeaways:

    - An enhanced understanding through critical review of the first Core Competency and how it intersects with their individual coaching practice
    - Ideas for working through common ethical dilemmas they might encounter as either an internal or external coaches
    - Insights on how to talk about the Code of Ethics with their clients and integrate the principles into their agreements and ongoing partnerships.
