Freedom From the Burden of Self -
How You Can Manage Yourself While Coaching with Tom Krapu, PhD, PCC


It is commonly understood that coaches can limit their overall impact when they "get in their own way". This presentation will operationalize the "burden of self" underlying this phenomenon and provide specific guidance on how to stay present with your client and to know when you are not present or imposing yourself on your client. The ICF PCC Marker behaviors will be to tied directly to skills related to self management and the utilization of self in the coaching process. These skills are at the heart of the highest level of coaching skill, but understandable to any coach regardless of level of training or practice.

  • Learn how to articulate specific triggers that interfere with being fully present when coaching clients
  • Learn how to site specific coaching behaviors related to self-management
  • Learn how to properly utilize "the self" in a coaching context
  • Learn how to create a plan specifying how through a reflective practice you can develop an increased capacity for self-management 

Participants who attend this session will have a deeper awareness of the “utilization of self” in their coaching and a strategy for better self management and self disclosure.
