Track 1 Intra/Interpersonal Space Experiential Learning Session: The Conjuror's Apprentice: Coach as Catalyst for Self-Organizing Moments in Coaching
Abstract: Executive coaches want to ensure that their clients move toward behavior and action that is required (organizationally) and wanted (internal motivation). In this session, a new model is defined based on Appreciative Coaching research into the coach’s role as catalyst in helping clients make significant shifts from self-limiting patterns to positive growth and development. These self-organizing pivotal moments in coaching are strongly influenced by the coach’s priming strategies and knowledge of how to facilitate transformation.
