Learn more and join us at the Reconnecting Workspaces Coach Certification. Benefit from 24 CCEs with the ICF.

 Are you ready to lead the way as a coach in the hybrid world?

The program is approved for 24 hours of CCEs with the ICF including 19 hours of core competencies.

Becoming a Certified Reconnecting Workspaces Coach will provide you with the opportunity to :
  • Take the resource into organizations and incorporate it into your work with leaders, team members and other remote and hybrid professionals;
  • Be on the cutting edge of what's happening RIGHT NOW in the workplace (or workspace);
  • Expand your offerings without having to do any heavy lifting of creating things yourself;
  • Build onto the latest research around teams, remote and hybrid work.

As a coach you will be able to use the materials with individual, group and team coaching clients.



We start training on Monday August 23rd with sessions being held:
Monday August 23rd: 130 - 3 pm ET
Tuesday August 24th: 12 - 3 pm ET
Wednesday August 25th:12 - 3 pm ET

  •  An introduction and overview of each chapter via microlearning
  •  A deep dive into the ins and outs of the resource
  • A Coaching Guide for Navigating Reconnecting Worksapces which includes an additional 80 pages of information on how to lead clients through the resources, and additional exercises to support extended conversations.

Plus Live Training and some 1-1 support from me this summer


Given that 3 Billion people started working remotely in March 2020, and many places are starting to reopen, "survey says" that hybrid and remote work is here to stay. Hybrid work has always been more complex that remote-only work, requiring that we have even stronger skills as coaches.

I'd love to have you join us at the front edge of these evolving changes, equipped with a remote and hybrid toolkit, being connected in community with others who are also leading this work.

I hope you will join us for the Reconnecting Workspaces Coach Certification starting on Monday August 23rd for the next cohort of training. As we say at the Remote Pathways podcast, "Let's go remote together!".
 
Early Bird Rate of $3495 US until July 30th, with regular rate of $3995 US as of August 1st.

Reconnecting Workspaces Coach Training Starts June 21st - Early Bird ends June 1st

I am very excited to announce the release of my next book, and body of work - Reconnecting

Reconnecting Workspaces

Workspaces: Pathways to Thrive in the Virtual, Remote and Hybrid World. It will be out mid-June, quickly followed by a special Reconnecting Workspaces Coach Certification program on June 21st. 

As many places go to reopen and many professionals transition from an all-remote to a hybrid work-arrangement, there is an opportunity to redefine and reimagine what the workspace looks like.

Paradigms around work have shifted and myths have been debunked. Principles and brain tips can help everyone thrive in the workspaces.

As coaches we are uniquely placed to support our clients in rearticulating what the workspace can look like. From leadership, to teamwork practices, meetings to team culture. 

Reconnecting Workspaces coaches will get grounding in the core areas the book covers in the 21 chapters. They will also receive training in core areas for helping remote and hybrid teams, and individuals, thrive in the workspace.

Training will run on June 21 - 23 2021 and then weekly until the end of July. 

Coaches will have the option to add on a special Reconnecting Workspaces Circle Specialization in August for coaches who want to lead RW Circles in organizations.

In 2020, more than 3 billion professionals went remote overnight. Many will be returning to workplace in the next few months. Are you ready to support them?

Download an FAQ about the training and Reconnecting Workspaces Coach Training here.

Early Bird Rate of $2997 US is on until June 1 when the pricing raises to $3997 US.

10 Approaches to Zest Up Your next Group Coaching


The possibilities are endless in terms of what you can do with groups during a group coaching engagement. Recently in my monthly group coaching newsletter, I shared these 10 ideas of different approaches you can incorporate into your next group coaching. Consider which ones you might want to add in to your next group or team coaching process:


Visuals - From digital photos to incorporating a process like Draw Your Future, what's possible?

Using Annotation to create your roadmap of where you are going to go

Incorporating Somatic approaches (i.e. getting in touch with, and activating your bodies)

Meditation

Journaling

Bringing in a guest speaker or a guest coach for one of your sessions (Call me... I'd love to join you and maybe even do some tag-team coaching!)

Peer partners

Having the group or team find one thing that is common across all group members; (A tip from last month's article!)

Questions

Reflective Pause

Laser Coaching

And, of course, dialogue!

What's your favorite approach to working with groups or teams? What is going to jazz up your next program?

Enjoy your conversations
