Engaging & Transformative Talks
Transformational Presence, Strategic Use of Self: Personal and Professional Mastery
Masterful coaches are aware of what they evoke and accountable for what they provoke – they inhabit a space where the power of “being” and the energy of “doing” act together to create outcomes that make a difference. Dorothy will discuss PRESENCE as a “being” intervention; and USE OF SELF as a “doing” intervention.
Awareness Agent: The New Role of the Coach and Leader in Turbulent Times
Many thought leaders and leadership experts agree that self-work is key to self-awareness, and influences what we choose to respond to, and how we will we respond. Learning what shapes our awareness, and how to then use our awareness to ultimately bring satisfaction, is why presence and use of self are such central concepts for coaches, consultants, and high performing leaders.
Group and Team Leadership: A Core Competency
Groups and teams offer unparalleled opportunities of increased creativity and focused energy for success. Leaders of groups or teams support members to collaboratively mesh their diverse resources and skills for a mutual purpose. Leaders require a grounded presence, the ability to hold multiple perspectives, and a strategic use of self to track system-level issues and intervene at the appropriate level.
