One of the biggest challenges Coaches face when working with a client on a long-term basis is lack of engagement. For the Coach, it can be draining to work with a client who is making little or no progress. And for the client, the level of commitment & discipline needed to fully engage in the coaching process can be a significant barrier, and challenge, to achieving results.

The way to overcome this challenge is to heighten your own Coaching Presence and develop a deep sense of trust, connection & authenticity.

Deciding to embark on your PCC, or to renew your PCC as a continued commitment is the right way to assure your clients that you're practising with standards and ethics. However, the credentialing journey can sometimes be confusing, and we all want to be successful in our applications.

In this 45 minute webinar, we will cover

  • the requirements for the PCC application
  • introduction to the PCC markers
  • quick tips to prepare for your Coach Knowledge Assessment online test
  • Q&A segment for new applicants, as well as renewals

This webinar is for

TOPIC: NARRATIVE COACHING

"Beware of the stories you tell yourself, for you will surely be lived by them."

This quote is attributed, perhaps erroneously, to Shakespeare, but it makes perfect sense. Everything we do, every memory we hold, every emotion we feel has a story wrapped around it. If you want to change anything in your world, there is an element of changing the stories, or the narrative that you tell yourself. It is for this reason that narrative coaching can be such a powerful approach to change; it goes to the essence of who we are and how we view our world.

You will learn about:

  • What the narrative approach is
  • Why it is so powerful
  • And give some tips to begin to bring elements of this method to your own coaching sessions
