Presenter: Michele Norris, PCC
Communication is the key to successful relationships. Successful relationships produce connection. Connection is the universal life force needed by humans. When conversation, relationships and connection intersect, a heart coherence is created that is the lifeblood of coaching. Where we make the invisible visible for our clients.
Please join Michele Norris for a conversation about embodying the concept of connection into our coaching relationships. Michele is a PCC coach who is a Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator (based on the work of Dr. Brené Brown) and a Certified Conversational Intelligence® Coach (based on the work of Judith Glaser). Combining wisdom from these incredible programs, Michele will bring awareness to several perspectives that will resonate for our coaching presence.
During this time of physical distancing, stress is more apparent since “isolation” (in its varied forms) has likely elevated our emotional state. There is a direct relationship between our ability to connect and our emotional state of mind. We literally do not have the capability of hearing, seeing, understanding and valuing other people when we have been “triggered”.
In this interactive webinar we will discuss:
- Neuroscience of conversations
- Neuroscience of stress conditions
- The dangers of binary thinking
- The universal human need for connection
- The lenses through which we see the world
- How to re-frame, refocus and redirect those lenses for connection
- How trust builds connection
