    AUGUST MONTHLY MEETING

    Body-Mind Integration-Benefits and Practice in Coaching

    In today’s head-centric culture we put extremely high demands on our brains asking them to do everything from planning, to decision making, anticipating and controlling outcomes, creating, connecting and relating all the while disconnected from the resources and support that lie just below our neck.  This imbalance results in increased stress and anxiety, decreased creative problem-solving, decreased ability to relate to others and engage fully with life.  As coaches, we experience these challenges both within ourselves and with our clients.  When we can connect with our natural body wisdom we access resources and bring balance to our systems, increase our capacity for innovation and creativity, build self-awareness and self-confidence, decrease stress, and improve our ability to connect and engage with others and with life.

    Participants will learn the benefits of body-mind integration and somatic movement as both personal and professional resources.  Through experiential process, participants will gain an understanding of how to access the intelligence of in their body and how to use it in their coaching practice.

      ICF Austin Virtual Happy Hour

      Hello Coaches!
      Join us for the ICF Members only Virtual Happy Hour designed to gather and discuss the business of coaching! As a member, we can help each other to develop stronger businesses. Our topics will vary, the one constant will be getting to know each other so that we can feel comfortable referring business when appropriate.

      Rules of engagement:
      • This is an "advice zone", please be respectful. If you are looking for input on a topic and any specific individual's advice doesn't resonate, recognize that the advice could be helpful to someone else in the group.
      • All of the discussion is confidential and we ask that you do not try to profit in any way from what is discussed. It is the generosity of our members, please respect what they choose to share with you.
      • Enjoy the group and remember ... Have FUN!
      The general format for the call is as follows:
      • Have your drink of choice, relax and be fully present with the group for 1 hour.
      • First, a 1 minute introduction of each participant. Please say your name and the clients you wish to attract and then call on someone to go next.
      • Next, a previously gather list of concerns, challenges and observations will be offered up for discussion by the leader. We will experiment with how best to ensure everyone has an opportunity to be part of the discussion. Consider others when you contribute by being succinct. Let curiosity drive the direction of the level of detail required. Which leads me to the next point.
      • Feel free to share your contact information with the group in chat or use the private chat to connect with someone specifically in the group. This will allow for a flowing discussion during the call and an opportunity to continue after the call.
      • Last 5 minutes, any feedback/final words about the session and a BIG THANK YOU for participating.

      SEPTEMBER MONTHLY MEETING

      Trust: The Crucial Ingredient of Creating a Respectful Coaching Climate


      This presentation is based upon the work of Dr. Brene Brown who is a research professor at The University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work and is known for her work around such topics as vulnerability, courage, and authenticity. In this presentation the participants will deepen their understanding of Trust and the use of Brene's BRAVING check list: Boundaries, Reliability, Accountability, Vault, Integrity, Non-judgement and Generosity through interactive activities. Since Trust - in ourselves and in others-is often diminished in a stressful or face down life/work situation, the ability to point to specific behaviors is more helpful than inflammatory thoughts or statements. The development and sustainment of healthy and trusting relationships is essential to respecting ourselves and creating a respectful coaching climate.

      Participants will gain a greater understanding on how and why trust is built incrementally and over time.  There will be exercises that help us identify trust relationships and the specific behaviors that are viewed as trust building in the coaching relationship.  Participants will apply Chales Feltman's definition of Trust to personal and coaching relationships; and, using Dr. Brown's definition of BRAVING we will broaden our understanding of trust building behaviors.

      OCTOBER MONTHLY MEETING

      THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX AND INSIDE THE FRAME

      How Creativity Can Fuel Happiness And Develop Insights 

      In this session we will discover how creativity can fuel happiness and develop insights for coaches and clients.  Studies around the world have shown that creativity is linked to happiness.  Discovering the creative potential improves not only one's personal well being, leading to greater fulfillment, but it improves professional life as well.  Many believe that they don't have a creative bone n their body.  But recent studies in neuroscience have proven that humans are wired to create.  Creative problem solving and creative thinking are skills that can be learned and developed, and they can lead to breakthrough results within the coaching process.

      During this presentation we will gain inquiry and insight into the following questions:

      • How can creativity improve our lives?
      • How do we train and strengthen the creative muscle?
      • How can we learn to switch between divergent and convergent thinking during the creative process?
      • What are the benefits of art-based strategies for coaching?
      Learning Objectives
      • Coaches learn how to develop their own creative skills in order to solve challenges with their clients more creatively.
      • Coaches will get tools and strategies to help their clients become better problem solvers and to think outside of the box when trying to come up with solutions for private or professional challenges.

      Christiane Michaelis

      Christiane is an expert on the subject of creativity. She studies creativity, speaks publicly about its benefits in the working world, and demonstrates it through her company, The Dirty Easel.

      Christiane believes that business' that fail to innovate will become obsolete.  Companies that build a culture of innovation find themselves on the path to growth.  Christiane founded The Dirty Easel to help organizations use their creative muscle to innovate and drive growth.

      Through The Dirty Easel, she conducts team building workshops in which she uses experiential painting as a tool to stimulate the creative process.  The painting experience helps people understand how to work with creativity, both alone and in teams.

      Christiane was a music student in Germany where she earned her Master's degree and played double bass in orchestras.  After college she became and opera and theater director and staged productions across Europe for ten years.  Through music and theater she learned to trust the creative process of an artist and how to generate ideas and form them into a finished piece.  She taught German, theater and music to young people.  As a teacher she learned how to get others to express themselves creatively.  She moved to the United States and she found her new passion:  The Dirty Easel.  In her own words:  "The Dirty Easel synthesizes all of my artistic experiences, as well as my research on creativity.  i found that my true passion is to igniting in others a passion for creativity, for innovation, for disruption.
