    ICF Southeast Regional Webinar Series | Host Chapter: ICF Central Florida

    Empowering Women Professionals to be Exceptional 

    1.0 Core Competency and 0.5 Resource Development CCEU

    Women’s distinctive strengths and behaviors provide them with many advantages. Yet the very habits that help them early in their careers can hold them back as they seek to rise.

    In this webinar, Sally will draw on her work with legendary executive coach Marshall Goldsmith to help women and the coaches who support them identify and address the habits most likely to get in their way as they seek to move to a higher level.

    This program is not just for women: By attending this program, men will gain a better understanding of what can hold women back and helps them be more informed and effective supporters of female clients and colleagues.

    Using vivid real-life examples that resonate and inspire, Sally will help participants:
    • Identify how specific habits may hinder women as they move to a higher level
    • Initiate simple behavioral changes that can smooth a woman’s path going forward
    • Develop accountability strategies for changes that can benefit individuals and their organizations
    • Become a more powerful resource for women seeking to rise

    Participants will come away from this program with:
    • An enhanced understanding of unique strengths
    • An actionable template for identifying and addressing challenges going forward
    • A proven means for developing support
    • Tools for enhancing visibility and connections

    Participants are encouraged to read the book, "How Women Rise", and come with questions. Click here for more information about the book and where to purchase.


    Sally Helgesen, cited in Forbes as the world’s premier expert on women’s leadership, is a best-selling author, international speaker and leadership coach. She has been ranked number 6 among the world’s top 30 leadership thinkers by Global Gurus, honored by the coaching consortium MEECO for her transformational influence on organizational cultures and chosen as the Thinkers 50/Marshall Goldsmith top coach for women leaders worldwide.

    Sally’s most recent book, How Women Rise, co-authored with legendary executive coach Marshall Goldsmith, examines the behaviors most likely to get in the way of successful women. It became the top-seller in its field within a week of publication and rights have been sold in 17 languages. Previous books include The Female Advantage: Women’s Ways of Leadership, hailed as the classic in its field and continuously in print since 1990, and The Female Vision: Women’s Real Power at Work, which explores how women’s strategic insights can strengthen their careers.

    August Monthly Meeting

    Dreamwork Webinar

    CCEU in Process

    Neuroscience tells us that everybody dreams.  History tells us that dreams have inspired scientific discoveries (Einstein, Bohr), music (McCarthy) and literature (Shelly, Stevenson) to name a few.  Virtually all cultures prior to the modern age valued dreams as part of the human experience; it is only fairly recently that we have confined dreams to the analytic process and convinced ourselves that their meanings are clouded in mystery that can only be deciphered by experts. 

    Coaching traditionally deals with what we could call Day School.  We work with the client’s waking experience and help them transform through the radical change that comes from the deep awareness they experience in the coaching process.  Night School, the time that we are asleep, offers us an additional pathway or dimension to the coaching relationship.  In seeing dreams as messages from the soul or the self, we provide the client an opportunity to become aware of the fullness of their experience as a human being. The goal is to integrate what they learn in Night School to what they know from their experience in Day School and vice versa.

    As coaching reclaims this experience for our clients we demonstrate how the fundamental tools of active listening and asking powerful questions provide the client with the confidence to access and understand the different elements of dream messages.  That understanding, like any transformative insight is co-created between the coach and the client.  We listen to dreams with the same profound curiosity as we do the needs and values of our clients.  By going on the journey with them into a dream we expand the intimacy and trust that is the cornerstone of the coaching relationship.

    We’ll cover some basic ideas about working with dreams in the first half of the webinar and then do a live demonstration with a volunteer so that everyone will have the experience of the power of this work. Please bring a dream ready to share if you're interested in participating as a volunteer. It's extremely beneficial if you write the dream down before attending the webinar. 


    The Dreamwork webinar is designed to provide coaches with the confidence to explore a new aspect of the coach/client relationship utilizing core competencies that they already possess.  The Dreamwork webinar addresses three Core Competencies in two different categories. 

    • Working with dreams strengthens the Co-creating of the Relationship by Establishing Trust and Intimacy with the Client in working with an additional aspect of their experience; dreams. 
    • It also expands Communicating Effectively by utilizing Active Listening and Powerful Questioning to help the client understand the messages in their dreams.
    • By adding the dimension of working with dreams to your coach’s palette, the attendees can add a new dimension to their relationships with their clients and further hone the competencies listed above.


    • 6:30PM–8:00PM


    Everyone is welcome to attend our meetings. 

    • ICF Local (Austin) Members and Affiliates - FREE
    • ICF Global Members, Non-ICF Local Members -$20
    • Guests (Non ICF-Local or Global Members) - $20


    Will Sharon has been working with dreams since he was a young therapist at the Veterans Administration in Manhattan.  Following 13 years of clinical work Will spent some time studying acting and working on NYC soap operas.  He then embarked on a 25 year corporate career in which he was fortunate to hold several “C” level positions.  Throughout his life he has experienced the cultural definition of success and failure and the many ways that each can disconnect us from the essence of who we really are.  

    As a coach, Will developed a process for working with dreams in the context of the fundamental tools of coaching; listening and asking powerful questions.  Instead of interpretation, which extracts meaning and then discards the dream, Will helps the client animate and add dimension to the creation of their imagination. In keeping the dream alive he believes that it will inform the client over time.

    By seeing the experience of dreaming as an ordinary experience we can better appreciate the extraordinary experience of being human.

    A lifelong New Yorker, Will is now a resident of Santa Fe where he is grateful for the experience of the high desert on his morning walks with his dog Jack.
