Yu Lin KongPresident's Message

Yu-Lin Kong

August 2017

I’ve been reflecting on my coaching practice and one piece I’ve been working on is bringing more of myself to my coaching conversations. In some of my work with one of my mentor coaches, I learned that I tend to hold back insights, reactions, intuitions. To no surprise, this is consistent not only in my coaching but also in other aspects of my life. As such, I’d like to use this opportunity to share a little bit about myself.

Retire Your Inner Critic

with Nanci Adair

Nanci will help you create your vision of success, and harness your personal power to get your big dreams off the back burner.

Francine Campone, Ed. D., MCCReadiness for Change: Meeting Your Clients Where They Really Are!

with Francine Campone, Ed. D., MCC

Thursday, October 5th, 11:00 AM Pacific

What do you do when a client promises action and does not follow through with it? How do you know how much of a stretch goal is really a stretch for a client? How do you motivate a client who is required to get coaching?  Knowing and understanding the model of stages of readiness for change offers tools and strategies for addressing these challenges. Francine will present the Prochaska and DiClemente model of stages of readiness for change and discusses ways coaches can use coaching presence, active listening, and powerful questions to generate client awareness, motivation, and action planning.

Oh My GOSH: A New Relationship with Money?

with Shell Tain, PCC

Thursday, October 26th, 11:00 AM Pacific

Most of us, including our clients, are really challenged dealing with money. Money Coach, Shell Tain, will be sharing a ‘no number crunching’ involved, ‘in the moment’, money tool with us. Like the perfect little black dress we’ve all sought, it’s simple - yet elegant.  You will learn an easy way to get really clear on what you or your clients are up to with money. As Shell says, since ‘Money is reflective, not causative’, exploring it gives us some interesting clues about what else is going on in our lives.
