Following an enlightening and powerful session on “Coaching Blind Spots” with Alison Whitmire, we will continue to build and refine our access to emotions in order to illuminate our biases, assumptions, and lenses – all a part of self-awareness and what we bring to our coaching sessions that may either hinder our work or be of service to our clients. This interactive, guided and reflective workshop will take us through coaching scenarios, role play opportunities, and exercises to help us personally look at how our views can either stall our coaching when used without awareness, or can make our coaching more powerful when used with purpose. By offering our lenses to coaching clients, we allow them to have a different view and choice to decide what brings clarity to their path forward. This workshop will help you identify the lenses you may apply unconsciously in order to bring conscious choice and greater power to your own coaching.


Takeaways from Emotional Intelligence SIG:

  • Refine your “Use of Self” coaching strategies
  • Apply your emotional responses to identifying your assumptions, biases and lenses
  • Further develop your emotional vocabulary and curiosity
  • Integrate emotions into your coaching to guide clients to purposefully illuminate their own biases, explore assumptions, and ponder their lenses in order to bring clarity to choices and create new opportunities
