Program Description:

Who we are is how we see the world. As coaches, our new core competencies ask us to consider the client’s culture—context, identity, environment, experiences, values, and beliefs—to enhance understanding, build trust, invoke awareness and create space for trust and safety. In this session, participants will learn how to use an identity exercise that Diane Whiting has used to help coaches in training to reflect on their own identity and how it shapes their coaching lens.

Lisa M. Ong will share a tool to help recognize your cultural dimension patterns to compare and contrast with others. This tool can assist you in mapping your own and your client's map of the world to increase your awareness of how your values shape your behavior and to better understand your client's current behavior and how they may behave in the future given their cultural context, values, experiences, and beliefs. Through client examples, discover how our perceptions can impact our ability to listen and evoke awareness with our clients when we are not looking for cultural patterns.

Lisa will be joined by ICF NTX members Diane Whiting and Rogers Turner to share their experiences and client examples. The panelists will explore how a greater awareness of identity and culture has strengthened their coaching connection and presence to grow their coaching niches.

Program Outcomes:

Participants will come away with practical tools to increase your awareness of the impact of your identity, culture, values, and beliefs in demonstrating your core competencies. We will learn:

  • To explore our source of identity and use our curiosity about cultures to explore our individual and organizational cultural lens to build our coaching competencies
  • To experience the power of cultural conversations to appreciate and recognize differences
  • To bridge cultural differences and coach others beyond the surface level visual dimensions
  • To understand that our coaching clients are changing in terms of demographics as leaders at earlier levels of management and are being given coaches to help with retention and advancement
