Laugh and let it go, Connecting thru laughter

730pm to 8pm: Networking
8pm to 930pm: Program
0.75h Core Competencies
0.75h Resource Development

Why are frogs so happy?

Because they eat whatever bugs them.  Laughing brings physical, mental, emotional and productivity benefits. Companies in Hong Kong recognize this, and have hired giggle specialists to tackle grumblings about high-stress work environments, including HSBC, Citibank, the Hospital Authority and even the Hong Kong Police (HRinasia.com). 

Studies have also shown that laughter allows blood to pump harder through the body, helping a culture of hearty, happy and hardworking employees! 

This program helps you to recognize what is stealing your joy, and to reframe circumstances to boost creativity, productivity, and overall fulfillment. Our giggle coach will show you how to produce a more nurturing and satisfying work environment using the weapon of laughter. 

Benefits of becoming happier

  • Laugh to gain perspective: laughter increases mental health, gives you a positive outlook on life, and increases emotional resilience
  • Cope with fatigue and negative feelings: have enough emotional strength to do what you love, by increasing health-enhancing hormones and reducing stress-inducing ones through laughter
  • Bond with colleagues through contagious laughter and create synergy
  • Practice habits that help you to improve your health, and increase happiness and life satisfaction
  • Enable a fun and creative culture with laughter 

What are the learning outcomes from the session?

  • Discover how to create a whole new world of opportunities using simple processes to laugh and establish relationships
  • Learn how to use four natural elements to re-invigorate yourself
  • Practice a set of mental exercises to help you cope with negative experiences and unpleasant memories
  • Learn to increase your happiness at work and in your relationships through a set of time-tested strategies
  • Get access to a daily routine happy people practice that helps them become extremely successful

The 'PCC Markers' as assessment markers are the indicators that an assessor is trained to listen for to determine which ICF Core Competencies are in evidence in a recorded coaching conversation, and to what extent.

In this  90 minute workshop, you will experience

  • an introduction to the PCC markers
  • a real, LIVE Coaching session delivered by a PCC 
  • group discussion and debrief of the Markers in action

This webinar is for

  • Aspiring PCCs
  • Aspiring MCCs
  • Newly minted ACCs who are keen to progress to their next level

This workshop is only open to ICF members and ICF coaches (alumni of ACSTH/ACTPs and practitioners of ICF's Core Competencies). This is to ensure quality discussions of the Core Competencies. You will be invited to actively observe, discuss and learn, so bring your most curious and open learner self. 

To facilitate a safe coaching space, this workshop is only limited to 15 seats. Reserve now to avoid disappointment. 

Kindly ensure attendance to avoid someone else missing this opportunity.

2018 October Chapter Meeting :
3D Coaching with Systemic Constellations

Topic : 3D Coaching with Systemic Constellations
CCEUs: 1.5hour core competencies

Systemic Constellations are a powerful and innovative tool that allows you to develop your toolbox and make your Coaching more effective. In short, Constellations are a method for guiding Clients – in individual, team, and group Coaching – through experiential exercises that increase their level of awareness of the current situation, their flexibility in terms of behaviour, and their ability to make better decisions.

Constellations enable you to make your coaching three dimensional. In addition to the usual conversational approach, they enable you add a visual dimension and somatic embodiment. You work with a visual representation of the client’s chosen topic and explore that topic by tapping into feelings and physical sensations.

Systemic Constellations for Coaches is a new version of this method specifically for Coaching and for its applications in the business world.

By attending this workshop, participants will experience:

  • An overview of the applications of Systemic Constellations in one-on one, team and group coaching
  • A live demonstration using a Systemic Constellation in a one-on-one Coaching Session, a volunteer will be invited from the audience.
  • How Systemic Constellations can integrate into one’s Coaching practice
