As professional coaches, we are called to a world of expansive cultural diversity. In this global and multi-cultured context, it is more important than ever that we have a deep awareness, consideration, and appreciation of how we are alike and how we are different as humans. Coaches need to be aware of and manage our own biases to serve our clients effectively.

 

 Dive in with today’s guests and:

 

- Grasp the importance of going into each coaching relationship and session with an open mind that’s culturally competent and ready to serve people from all walks of life. 

 

- Learn the unforced rhythms of grace that abound when we approach coaching with curiosity so we can become more aware of and honor the variety of cultures in our world. 

 

- Experience the value of better understanding various people and setting aside bias to help our clients follow the call of God on their lives.

Establishing and maintaining a coaching agreement with your client is the foundation of everything else you do. It’s an invitation to genuine exploration as you begin a coaching relationship, but it’s also a process, something you will want to do early, often, and in-depth throughout the relationship.

 

Our guest today, Todd Kemp, unpacks the newly updated ICF Core Competency #3 and shares the key skills we need to practice this competency well.

 

Learn from a Seasoned Professional:

 

- How coaching agreements are at the heart of everything you do

 

- Zero in on the co-created relationship that makes coaching both relational and collaborative, so you can maximize the experience for your clients.

 

- Master the partnership with not only clients but also stakeholders, to make clear agreements about processes, plans, and goals.
