Do you find yourself coaching people who are different from you? Perhaps they are of different age, race, gender, or sexual orientation? As coaches, we pride ourselves on asking questions and listening so being different shouldn’t matter, right? Well, not exactly. We are still human. This interactive session will focus on the human side of coaching. You will specifically learn how our implicit bias and blind spots may interfere with us building the most trustful coaching relationships possible with clients that are different from us.

Takeaways from Teleclass:

  • Why coaching people different from oneself is a vital skill
  • A history of diversity, equity, and inclusion approaches and why these approaches have failed in organizations
  • Common missteps that humans take when interacting with people different from ourselves, and how to recognize and avoid these missteps
  • How to coach below the surface to create a culture of belonging in your coaching practice and in the field as a whole
