Note: Eligible for 1 ICF Resource Development CCE credit with full participation
Hosts: Mike Gellman & Nancy Cattle

Program Description: Often our clients can’t see their own potential but as coaches, we can; through the questions we ask and the answers we don’t get. How many times have you felt like your client is telling you what they think you want to hear? As a career coach it is important to understand the motivations behind the career choices. Because identity is so closely tied with career the motivations are often not driven by potential but by false assumptions, expectations (put on them by themselves and others) and fear, none of which will serve a thriving career. So how do you identify the potential in your client? Attend the session and begin the discovery process.

You will learn:

  • How to help the client discover who they really are, beyond the titles
  • How to identify the things that get in the way of your client’s potential
  • How to help your client embrace the vision of their potential.
  • How to be an effective accountability partner for your client.
