12/11/2017 – Who Do You Think You Are?: A Coaching Mastery Conversation.

ICF: 1.5 hours (Core Competencies)
BCC: 1.5 hours

SPEAKER:  Christopher McAuliffe, MCC, founder of Accomplishment Coaching, an ICF Accredited Coach Training Program, Host and Producer of “The Coaching Show” since 2002, and previous SDPCA President.


Get ready for a lively and humorous interactive session… about two major issues in coaching and in coaching certification. 

In this fast-paced, high-level session, we will look at:

  1. Our judgments and opinions, biases and blind spots as coach,


  1. Exploring what Coaching Presence is – and what it is not.
  • First, we will look at Coaching Bias – a hot topic in coaching, coach training, and organizations! 
    • We will do some of the work from this year’s Coach Training Summit on “Calling In Power and Culture,” held in Toronto. 
    • We will take on some exercises to explore our own self-definition, and discover how others might be relating to us. 
    • We will consider how we are impacting our clients based on our own biases and blind spots in coaching, and in life. 
  • Second, we will do some exercises to learn more about Coaching Presence, one of the most elusive of the ICF Core Competencies.
  • We will also discover how to shift, expand or ‘rein in’ our own Coaching Presence based on the work we do on bias and culture.
  • Throughout, we will practice, give and get feedback, and get an opportunity to become more authentic, and all the while getting rid of some of our “shoulds.”
  • There will be music and candy, and awareness that you can use immediately in your coaching practice!

Benefits from this Session:

  • Discover previously unseen drivers of your own behavior… and the behavior of your clients!
  • Get feedback on your Coaching Presence, and learn how to shift it.
  • Take on the most important element of your coaching practice – you! 
    • Improve your connection with clients.
    • Get even clearer on your relationship with yourself, and what you are presenting to the world.
    • Learn how to maximize your impact and avoid pitfalls in sessions with prospective clients and organizations.
  • Have fun while you learn!  Hilarity will ensue! Did we mention there’s chocolate?
