Authentic Leadership & the Multigenerational Mindset

3 Sessions, 6 CCE Credits in Core Competencies $450

Learn More

Year over year, decade over decade, generational trends emerge in the workplace. Labels are often assigned, and workplace assumptions made, based upon years of experience, when and where someone entered the workplace, and many other factors forcing people into identifying groups.

Nowhere is this more apparent than with the Millennials. They grew up with technology created by their predecessors and peers. They use social media to communicate and multi-task as no other workplace generational group has in the past. Now, they are becoming leaders, and they demand authenticity.

But what does that term really mean? How do leaders emerge from these close-knit groups and how do they adopt a management mindset focused on bottom-line profitable results, not just having the most fun at work?

Coaching corporate leaders who want to be respected and promoted while at the same time remaining authentic to themselves and working efficiently so they can have more time to pursue personal interests is a challenging precipice many coaches are facing.

Capacity, confidence, capability, and environment influence creativity which is the zero-starting point of the innovation process, with the individual as the starting point of every idea.

Change can be intimidating, overwhelming, exciting, unnerving, unexpected, welcome, desired, necessary, unwelcome, positive and negative in many contexts.

Power of Positivity

3 Sessions, 6 CCE Credits in Core Competencies $450

Learn More

Positivity can be contagious. Every situation has an upside and a downside; the yin and the yang, the good and the bad. The ICF core competencies help to draw out positivity in ourselves as coaches in order to serve any client, but some people are predisposed to see the glass half-empty; they focus on past bad experiences rather than the positive things they learned along the way. They worry about the “what ifs” of situations they have no control over, rather than saying “this is what I CAN do” and focusing on the upside of a situation.

Much work has been done around the relationship between positive psychology and coaching. Increase your own awareness and fine-tune your knowledge of core competencies around The Power of Positivity with this continuing coach education course from The Elevar Group designed specifically for credentialed coaches.

Re-solutionizing Conflict – New Approaches to Conflict Resolution

3 Sessions, 6 CCE Credits in Core Competencies $450

Learn More

This course is a deep dive on conflict methodologies starting with the definition of conflict, types, and sources as well as ways to revolutionize your clients’ conflict resolution techniques. Conflict is defined as any situation in which incompatible goals, attitudes, emotions, or behaviors lead to a disagreement or opposition between two or more individuals. Examine conflict as two types defined as functional and dysfunctional. Functional conflict results in positive benefits to individuals, a group, or the organization. This type of good conflict can raise awareness of important issues so that they can be addressed. Good conflict carries the potential to be a win-win. Dysfunctional conflict, on the other hand, can damage group cohesion, promote hostilities among those involved, and create an overall negative experience for all associated with the situation. Examine conflict as two sources defined as internal and external.

Within the course we cover the following ICF core competencies: Establishing Trust and Intimacy, Active Listening, Powerful Questioning, Direct Communication, Creating Awareness, Designing Actions, Planning & Goal Setting, Managing Progress and Accountability. Each class module builds upon the previous one, and requires each participant to coach and be coached through the revolutionary process of resolving conflicts in 4 steps:

1- Determining the type and nature of conflict- functional/dysfunctional and internal/external

2- Identifying the expectation breakdown

3- Evaluating consequences

4- Breaking the cycle of escalation

Whether in individual, leadership or group organizational coaching having a strong background in values based decision making can assist you with clients in many meaningful ways.

Individual core values influence people, groups and organizations both subconsciously and overtly. When someone has a strong understanding of how values guide decisions and actions, that awareness can open up a strong methodology of decision making that helps eliminate worry – allowing people to be more at peace with the choices they make -vs- worrying about how multiple choices might play out. They make the decision with more strength and conviction eliminating the need to worry about what might happen if they go down one path vs another.
