This session will serve as both a follow-up to the February 10th Teleclass, “Top Three Ways Coaches Get In the Way of Coaching” with Alison Whitmire, and a stand-alone opportunity to dive deeper into blindspots. Alison will guide us through a more in-depth exploration into common coaching blindspots. Come look at the impact of our blindspots on our coaching, as well as how to notice them in the moment. Learn new strategies and tools to not only identify blindspots, but how to adopt new behaviors for building awareness and managing blindspots as coaches. Join us as we deepen our conversation and learnings around our own blindspots and kick off the year with greater clarity.

Takeaways for participants:
  • Explore how blindspots form
  • Identify where to look for them
  • Predictable ways your blindspots show up in your coaching
  • Illuminate the most common coaching blindspots
  • Learn tools to authentically see yourself in your coaching and strategies for identifying blindspots and trying on new behaviors
