You are invited to pause and explore, in an interactive online setting, the natural human experience of biases that may limit our ability to engage with clients and others.
We will explore the power of reflective practice to help us become aware of our biases and learn ways to minimize their impact on our being with clients.
This is the essence of the new ICF Competency: Embodies a Coaching Mindset: Develops and maintains a mindset that is open, curious, flexible and client-centered.
To expand our coaching mindset by becoming aware of our Unconscious Biases
To increase our personal capacity to support others
To build reflective practice capacity to increase self-awareness and personal effectiveness
About the facilitator:
The more I have reflected on my world view and its limiting impact on others the more I have seen the importance of developing the reflective skills to become more aware of my Unconscious Bias. This reflection includes the impact of my race, gender, power and privilege on relationships with clients. It is from this place of acknowledging the influences on my world view that I wish to explore Unconscious Bias and create greater reflective capacity with you.
