      Creating Captivating Breakthrough Sessions: How To Powerfully Enroll New Clients, even in an Uncertain World

      Presenter: Tara Butler, CPCC, PCC

      Date: Friday, March 11, 2022 at 11:30 AM MT

      Fees: ICF High Country Members are free; Non-members $25


      While "live" attendance is required for the 1-hour CCEU, a recording of this webinar will be made available to all registered attendees.

      About our Program

      In a world that is rapidly changing and full of ambiguity, coaching has never been more needed. It is our opportunity as coaches to step up and help by supporting people through unprecedented times. Tara will be sharing how her enrollment strategies can help you serve others powerfully while also providing the opportunity for the right prospects to work with you.

      One of the biggest challenges that Coaches face is powerfully enrolling committed clients. It may seem particularly daunting now with the amount of ambiguity in our world. (Will somebody really pay for coaching if their job is on the line? With the fear of a recession?) The key to powerful enrollment conversations is for coaches to showcase their coaching skills while simultaneously, organically lead the right client to see the huge value of working with them to help them bridge the gap between where they are and where they want to be. If you want to have a sustainable, full practice full of committed clients then it’s key to master and love the art of client enrollment. Unfortunately, most enrollment methods taught by the Marketing “Gurus” don’t work well for coaches, who want to have an authentic and genuine connection with their prospects and not be overtly “salesy”. Conversely, giving away free sample sessions may give the prospective client a great coaching experience but rarely leads to a powerful conversation about working together.

      This presentation Creating Captivating Breakthrough Sessions – How To Powerfully Enroll New Clients, even in an Uncertain World you will learn how to:

      - Create the coaching container to have deep learning and insight, and lead your prospect down a path to work with you, simultaneously.

      - Create your own enrollment template using our methodology and process for client enrollment conversations 

      - Frame your enrollment conversations to create clear expectations for the experience (no bait and switch!)

      - Hold a perspective that serves your ideal outcome and serves the client 

      - Handle and navigate sticky issues around money  

      - Get to a clear and powerful “yes” or “no” (no more wishy washy-ness!) 

      Whether you have been a coach for a year or a decade, there will be great nuggets for you to learn from this presentation. This methodology works well for both coaching and consulting services and can be used effectively with either individuals or a corporate environment. Whether you are a leadership coach and consultant, or a life coach, this methodology can be customized to create a powerful enrollment conversation that will create a powerful, committed “yes” from clients who you know are meant to work with you.

        Relational Presence for Coaches

        Presenter: Tina Mertel PCC

        Date: Friday, April 8, 2022 at 11:30 AM MT

        Fees: ICF High Country Members are free; Non-members $25


        This session will NOT be recorded.

        About our Program

        Build a richer connection with clients that evokes your best coaching self in service of the client

        As coaches, our ability to be fully present and conscious with our clients is key to a successful relationship. Yet sometimes we can let the skills and tools we learned steal our focus away from being in the moment. And without a focus on our way of being with our client, our coaching relationship is less effective.

        While it’s important to intentionally improve our capacity for presence, exactly how can we do that? This 60-minute, highly interactive webinar will equip coaches with the Relational Presence methodology. This proven process will build your muscle of how to be with clients. Relational Presence allows coaches to access a way of being that cultivates trust and safety, enriches their coaching presence, deepens their active listening, and heightens evoking awareness within clients.

        For more on Relational Presence and Coaching, see this article: https://coachfederation.org/blog/a-way-to-be

        Please be sure to use your webcam for this webinar. This is a high participation event where attendees have the opportunity to practice the skills learned in the session. Be “camera ready” to interact with the other participants via webcam.

        Past Participant: “The kind of safe space held [on the webinar] was fantastic. It was feeling the comfort of the space and the acknowledgement showers that helped me to feel okay to speak. For me, invaluable.”

          About the Speaker


          Tina Mertel is a PCC-level coach and is certified in Relational Presence (also known as Speaking Circles®). She has a coaching practice, teaches groups within commercial and government sectors, and trains coaches in how to use Relational Presence with her co-leader, Pam Noda.

          Experience has taught her that being in Relational Presence with clients is the ground of coaching wisdom. From there emerges a coach’s sense of what to say when and which skills/tools to apply. From there emerges a client’s inner knowing and call to action. This combination is what yields inspired coaching from the coach and inspired results for the client.

          Transformational Journaling for Coaches and Clients

          Presenter: Lynda Monk

          Date: Friday, May 13, 2022 at 11:30 AM MT

          Fees: ICF High Country Members are free; Non-members $25

          While "live" attendance is required for the 1-hour CCEU, a recording of this webinar will be made available to all registered attendees.

          About our Program

          During this interactive session, participants will be introduced to Life Source Writing™. This is a 5-step transformational journaling method that can help both coaches and clients alike to gain clarity, reduce stress and manifest desired results. In addition to being an awareness building and action planning tool, journaling and expressive writing are proven ways to improve emotional, physical, psychological and spiritual health. The writing and wellness connection will also be explored in this session.

          Transformational journaling is a powerful tool to integrate within the coaching relationship itself, and it is also a consciousness raising practice that can enrich and nourish us as coaches as we take time to listen within. In this session, we will explore journaling as a creative evidence-based practice to help our clients gain new awareness and take inspired actions aligned with their values and goals.

          Learning Objectives:

          • Explore the benefits of journaling for both coaches and clients
            • Who is journaling best suited for?
            • What considerations are needed to get the most out of journaling?
            • What is helpful and what can be harmful (not all writing is healing and transformational)
          • Experience Life Source Writing – a 5 step reflective and mindful journaling method for increased insights, clarity and well-being
          • Learn different ways to integrate journaling into your coaching work with clients
          • Consider how to use journaling within group coaching programs
          In terms of CCE details, a webinar of this nature have been granted 1 CCE credit per hour of the session.
