    JUNE MONTHLY MEETING

    Taking Your Business to the Next Level

    In 2015, Diane Winn, PCC, made the decision to take her business to the next level.  This included narrowing her focus on the type of client she wanted to work with and committing to change old patterns and behaviors to increase success.  In June of 2017, she realized she had already done more business than the entire year of 2016. 

    Join us for a dynamic program designed to support YOU taking YOUR business to “the next level”

      About the Speaker


      Diane Winn, PCC

      Diane Winn, certified Leadership coach, mentor, facilitator and speaker has over 20 years of success providing the support leaders and executives need to reach their potential.  She understands firsthand the responsibilities and challenges leaders undertake, particularly women in business. As a full-time professional coach and mentor operating her own consultancy since 2004, Diane’s work brings focus to the opportunities inherent in the challenges her clients are facing.  When leaders are promoted or wish to be promoted, they often need to re-invent themselves by adding skills or changing perspective.  Diane works to support sustainable change in thinking, behavior and results. She helps clients recognize and utilize their natural and unique strengths with increased skill and confidence to create centered leadership presence and organizational results. Her single focus is the client’s success.

      Diane is also the architect of two programs – Enhancing Emotional Intelligence and Coaching Skills for Leaders.  These experiential programs provide self-mastery tools for high-potential team members.  Topics include the science of heart and mind, proficiency in listening and responding, giving and receiving clear feedback and assimilating logic with wisdom.  A recent graduate commented “Classes I’ve taken in the past have focused on how to manage external problems.  This class presented the opportunity to look at what happens internally and change my response to external stimulus.”

      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.

        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.

        About the Speaker

        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.
