The Psychology of Mindsets in Adult Development: Helping Your Clients Take Their Foot off the Brakes

How to Apply Adult Developmental Psychology in Your Coaching

As coaching professionals we see clients who are regularly bumping up against their blind spots. They struggle to see how their internal conflicts fully impact their actions and subsequent results. As coaches, we strive to help our clients name and work through these difficult mindsets.

Over the psychological development of adulthood there are trends and commonalities to how these blind spots, internal conflicts, and mindsets manifest themselves. As coaches, our practice can be enriched by gaining a deeper understanding of this psychological trajectory.

During this two-hour program, you’ll learn how to apply modern adult developmental psychology to your coaching and see greater opportunities to help your clients develop. We will review Constructive Developmental Theory (CDT), developed by retired Harvard Professor, Dr. Robert Kegan, and its direct application in coaching scenarios.

You will also be exposed to Dr. Kegan and Dr. Lisa Lahey’s coaching process known as “Immunity to Change” (ITC). It works directly to change mindsets and assumptions. ITC is a tool that all coaches should know, it has been adopted by top executive coaches at Google, Wealth Management International, Facebook, and countless other organizations. This program is designed to help you see and make greater sense of what your client is going through, from a different and more creative lens. Learn to open up new roads and avenues to coach your clients to reach greater success.

You will…

  • Gain an understanding of the ITC process, and be exposed to new possibilities to uncover deeply held fears and assumptions that hold people back.
  • Understand the connections of adult psychological growth and mindsets (how people think, behave, and perceive their emotions throughout their lifespan).
  • Earn 2.0 Resource Development CCEUs
