April 10 ICF North Texas Luncheon Program

 Handling Difficult Coaching Situations: a “Power Paradox”

 
Presenter: Debjani Biswas, MBA, MSOD, PCC
 

Our April 10 Luncheon Program features Debjani Biswas, an international keynote speaker, thought leader, and author of Unleash the Power of Diversity (UPDIV), which is endorsed by Marshall Goldsmith (Thinkers50 Award Winner for Most Influential Leader Thinker in the World). Her original frameworks and concepts (The Five Judgments, Orchid Effect, and Singularity Dynamics) are being used in 23 countries. She is currently the Principal of Coachieve (www.coachieve.us) which specializes in leadership effectiveness.

 
Program Description:

 

Why are some coaching engagements and relationships inherently tougher than others? What can we do about it? How can we implement more effective approaches to this “Power Paradox”? The key is to maintain our coaching presence in the moment, take control of the situation, and bring ourselves and our clients back into a safer and more productive space.

 

Learning Outcomes:

 

In this highly interactive and exercise focused program we will practice asking powerful questions, active listening, and heightened self and client awareness. We will explore a step by step approach to handling difficult coaching scenarios.

  • Use Emotional Intelligence to recognize stressors and solutions in tense coaching situations
  • Learn how to connect with calm authentic power in the face of difficulties
  • Practice a new coaching framework applicable across multiple tough situations
  • Discover the impact of a “Power Paradox”: The Results – Effort U Curve

Happy Spring!

 

I’ve started to wonder if it might be more appropriate to start by mentioning March Madness. We all know about the power of the mind—except when it comes to changing the weather!

 

Our March is playing host to two meetings. One of them you’ve had a chance to read about. Ray White is our luncheon speaker on March 13 on the topic of creating success through happiness.

 

Our second meeting is the first Regional Rendezvous of the year. The regional rendezvous are evening networking opportunities at different locations throughout the Metroplex. Our first one happens on March 26 from 5:00 – 7:30 at the Reata Restaurant Rooftop Bar, 310 Houston Street, Sundance Square, in Fort Worth. Please come even if you can just stay for a short while. It’s your best opportunity to rub elbows with other coaches in the area. Also, please register so we can get a count for the free hors d’oeuvres. The place is fantastic and the food will make you want to come again. ICF-NT will host several regional rendezvous this year across the metroplex. Look for announcements throughout the year at other locations.

 

Registration is now open for the ICF Midwest Convention in June. Register and come to Kansas City on June 18-20. If you been in the past two years, you know this is something you don’t want to miss. You can find all the details you want at icf-midwest.com or click here to register.
