ICF Chicago Webinar Tomorrow


                          This webinar is approved for 1 CCEU

  • How ready are you to be more fearless in your coaching?
  • How ready are you to take your coaching to the next level?
  • How willing are you to walk your talk?
  • How ready are you to roll up your sleeves and get your coaching kicked up a notch?
  • How ready are you to learn from two coaching geeks (who are both PCC certified with over 8000 coaching hours between them) with different coaching styles who have the same top value of fun?


In this interactive, fun, and filled with learning webinar Jenn and Karen will be facilitating an impactful interaction into coaching techniques, approaches and lead a discussion about the “power” of powerful questions.  One person will be the client and everyone on the call will have the opportunity to ask powerful questions.  The two of us will give you feedback — giving you direct access to two different coach approaches, hear other coaches and help you find your own style of ICF Core Competency #7 Evokes Awareness.

ICF CCEU Core Competency:

Evokes Awareness

The focus will be on:

  • Asking questions that reflect active listening and an understanding of the client’s perspective. 

  • Asking questions that evoke discovery, insight, commitment or action (e.g., those that challenge the client’s assumptions). 

  • Asking open-ended questions that create greater clarity, possibility or new learning. 

  • Asking questions that move the client towards what they desire, not questions that ask for the client to justify or look backwards.
