Picture This: Using Visuals to Deepen Coaching Conversations
Sometimes we encounter clients who are stuck in recurring stories and patterns or cannot access the deeper levels of meaning embedded in their challenge. Visuals become a non-threatening way of discovering and articulating what may be holding them back and what could move them forward. The use of images can also unleash the creative power of the coach in taking on a variety of coaching challenges using the power of metaphor to lead the client’s self-discovery and solution creation. In teams it can create safer ways to bridge misunderstandings and promote cohesion around what’s important.
The content of this session will focus on providing deep personal reflection/exploration and gaining comfort with conducting coaching conversations via visuals. In this session participants will gain exposure to two different methodologies to approach coaching through images. During the session, participants will explore the methodologies experientially, then will share ideas that can enrich the range of applications with which they and their colleagues can experiment. This can also lead to a discussion of the advantages of each approach.
Three learning objectives:
CEU's for this program are 1 Core and .5 Resource Development
- Experience using visual images to bypass internal barriers to self-discovery
- Practice using images to improve personal growth as a coach leveraging the ICF core competencies of Active listening, Powerful questioning, and Creating awareness
Explore different ways of using images for a variety of applications individually and in teams/groups
