Today, we are unpacking ICF Competency #7: Evokes Awareness. When we show up in coach mode, our primary purpose is to enable a client to draw forth things that are already in them, evoking awareness of the things God has already placed within them. Each part of this new competency will help you be a better coach when applied to your practice.

Listen in to learn:

  • The full definition of ICF Competency #7 and how you can use related tools to facilitate client insight and learning.

  • How to make a smooth transition from the “being” part of coaching to the “doing” piece so you can get to the core of coaching.

  • Strategies that will help you show up in a curious manner that calls forth things your clients may have forgotten or perhaps were never aware of before.

  • Bring a coach approach to your questions and style of communication so that each session is impactful for your clients.
