Description: Experience of coaching women in business in Russia, the country that has a long history of the Soviet Union with the mindset quite different from modern reality, brings insights and invites coaches to be open and sensitive to systemic patterns. What are the typical patterns women bring through generations and how they can affect them in business and coaching? How a coach can support clients in their quest for the resourcefulness when they have generation behind far from business mentality, and still be the coach, not a therapist?

ICF Oregon

Topic: From Consciousness to Creativity: How Spiritual Practices Transform Organizational Culture Within the 21st Century Workplace
Chapter Representative: Sarah Graves, President, ICF Oregon
Speaker: Feroshia Knight, MCC
CCEs: 1.0 CCE for Core Competencies / 0.25 CCE for Resource Development

Description: Until recently, little research has been conducted on the benefits of encouraging spirituality and inner focus among employees within an organizational structure. Yet as companies and forward-looking leaders continue to search for new pathways to achieve organizational success, and more willingly accept the individual as a whole being, that attitude is shifting.

Mindfulness is the active cultivation of non-judgmental awareness by paying attention to the present moment and our situations as they are.  This ancient practice of self-awareness is applicable to modern organizational culture. Measured through enhanced wellness, lower absenteeism and employee retention, recent data suggests a strong correlation between spirituality and the workplace – with a positive change in job satisfaction of nearly 65%!

Quite simply: healthy inner lives impact outer performance.

ICF Portugal

Topic: Intercultural Coaching
Chapter Representative & Speaker: Alexandra Berosa Pereira, PCC, CCM, VP ICF Portugal
CCE’s: 1.0 CCE for Core Competencies / 0.25 CCE for Resource Development

Description: The intellectual/human capitals, the ideas and people aren’t transposable from one culture to another. The values of planning and management, the specificities of each place, of each manager, of each team should be considered and respected in their individuality for them to gain ground and flourish. Although it is implicit that Coaching regards these statements, as Coaching is focus on client’s agenda, client’s needs, client’s values…, Coaching is delivered by Coaches that are not more than human.

As Coaching is spreading around the world, we are observing some discussions around cultural awareness in Coaching and about the applicability of Coaching Frameworks within each context. Although the integration of a cultural perspective into Coaching is very much at the ‘pioneering’ stage.

This webinar will start with main findings coming from research. We will then reflect around the application of ICF Core Competencies in different cultural contexts. Finally the audience will be invited to think on how our cultural bias are always present when we coach.

Alexandra Berosa Pereira, PCC, CCMAlexandra Berosa Pereira is a Professional Certified Coach (PCC), Certified Coach Mentor (CCM), and a Facilitator for Intercultural Presence. She has a 26 year career with 17 years in senior roles in public and private companies, and more than 2,300 hours of executive coaching in corporate environments.

Alexandra has been studying, working and researching in global environments since a young age. In the last years she has specialized herself in intercultural leadership. She is also an author and a researcher, because she has the belief that reflection and research-based work should be holding hands with action. As most as she believes that sharing and volunteer work enrich us as human beings, and therefore, volunteer work is also part of her schedule.

Alexandra loves learning, so curiosity is what best defines her as a coach, and Team Coaching is following in her line of research and delivery.
