The Power of Shifting and Anchoring States and Meaning – Let’s Play Some More!
Speaker: Laurel Rolls
Brief Description: Our clients come to us from their worlds of stress, uncertainty, activity, demands, beliefs, emotions, thoughts and values and bring with them the state of mind and energy that has been forged by all of these factors. OH…and we come to our clients the same way!
This workshop will focus on consistently bringing our best state and mindset to our clients as well as ways to quickly bring them to an open, creative state and mindset using some of the techniques and language of NLP.
Three to Five Workshop Learning Outcomes (if applicable):
1. Understanding without admiring or judging our own states and those of our clients
2. Mindset and how we process meaning are everything! – understanding how we assign meaning and the impact it has
3. Powerful shifting and reframing techniques using language and process
4. Anchoring resourceful states for ourselves as coaches and with our clients

Laurel is the Founder and President of Laurel Rolls & Associates, a Business,
Professional and Executive Coaching firm dedicated to Inspire Possibilities...NOW!TM
Possibilities exist all around us…possibilities for our lives and possibilities for our
businesses and careers. All those things we miss when we stick with the familiar and operate on autopilot. Inspire Possibilities...NOW!TM breaks down the barriers of
convention and the blocks of limiting belief systems and behaviors. Inspire
Possibilities...NOW!TM is about reaching that next level of performance, satisfaction,
energy and success.
Through coaching and using many techniques (NLP, assessments, cognitive behavior, strategic questioning, positive psychology and many others), Laurel is able to guide her clients through awareness of Limiting Beliefs, Behaviors, Blocks and Barriers (The 4 B’sTM) – the landmines keeping them from success and happiness – and eliminate them.
Anyone who registered for the August Workshop will be given a credit to apply to a future ICF-NT event.
Welcome to September!
International Coaching Week (ICW) is an annual global celebration of the coaching profession intended to increase the visibility, understanding and impact of coaching. Coaches around the world offer a variety of activities and pro bono services in their local communities to share coaching’s impact. Originally started in 1999 by ICF Member Jerri N. Udelson, MCC, ICW educates the public about the value of working with professional coaches and acknowledges the results and progress made through the coaching process.
The North Texas Chapter has provided coaching to many not-for-profits for several years as part of ICF’s Coaching Week. We are excited to celebrate this year’s Coaching Week on November 6, 2014. We will work with United States veterans through the organization Stand Beside Them. Their mission is “to provide coaching services to our returning service members and their families/caregivers who may be encountering obstacles here on the home front.” You can lean more about this organization at http://www.standbesidethem.org/ and more about how you can get involved with ICF-NT’s Coaching Week here.
Historically, one of our most popular chapter programs is our session devoted to Coaching Assessments. This will be the focus of our September meeting and the topic has been expanded to include Coaching Tools and Assessments. Read more about this informative program on Page 2 of The September Newsletter. Following this program Laurel Rolls will present a workshop on NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming): The Power of Shifting and Anchoring States and Meaning—Let’s Play!
Finally, please read Page 4 of the September Newsletter for the ICF North Texas Board’s Call for Nominations to the 2015 Board of Directors. The nomination period closes at midnight on Friday, September 12, 2014.
