Although trauma is ubiquitous, the phenotypic expression of trauma is not always obvious. Coaches are encountering trauma-motivated behaviors regularly regardless of whether such encounters are recognized or acknowledged. Many of the typical motivators to seeking coaching (stuckness, imposter syndrome, burnout, performance improvement, bully/victim dynamics, career change/derailment, work/life balance) are rooted in some form of trauma. Experienced coaches trained and skilled in trauma-informed principles, trauma-awareness, trauma-responsive communication, and trauma-mitigation practices can engage both differently and more meaningfully. This paradigm for engagement provides clients with a richer coaching experience.

September 8 Southeast Region Webinar
How Vision Acts as a Lever for Change
11:30 AM – 1:00 PM CT
Webinar Cost: ICF Global Members – $10 / Non-ICF Global Members – $20
Dr. Angela Passarelli is an Associate Professor of Management at the College of Charleston, SC, and Director of Research at the Institute of Coaching, McLean/Harvard Medical School. Angela has a long-standing interest in how people, especially organizational leaders, transform as individuals and collectives to realize their full potential. This draws her to topics such as leader development, intentional change, experiential learning, emotional intelligence, organizational neuroscience, motivation, self-regulation, wellbeing, and developmental relationships. Her current research focuses on how coaching relationships support learning and behavior change throughout one’s career. In particular, she is engaged in work that examines how coaching outcomes are shaped by characteristics of the individual being coached, the interaction between the coach and coachee, and competencies of the coach.
This webinar features research that demonstrates how crafting a personal vision optimizes the brain for development and change. Anchored in Intentional Change Theory, a cornerstone of vision-based coaching is the ability to help others connect core elements of their past to their dreams and aspirations, creating an image of an ideal future that fosters hope and openness to new possibilities. This image of an ideal future, along with the positive emotions it engenders, can help to overcome inertia, motivating and sustaining individuals on a path of intentional development. Through the process of visioning, a living “statement” emerges as a tangible product of the coaching process. When the vision statement is used “first and frequently,” it promotes the joyful pursuit of goals leading to lasting change.
