Showing up Authentically in Community
In today's conversation we speak about what it means to show up authentically in our Coach Community. We speak about authenticity, permission to be on dim, and checking Coach stereotypes and the need to perform at the door. We speak about how we are building these virtual spaces as ones that welcome all versions of what it means to participate, and how we are grateful for those in the larger co-creative process we are facilitating.   We know that Coaching is a demanding job, emotional labor is real, and that giving so much to our clients and others in our lives is tiring. We know it is often normalized to defer our deny out own needs, and that sometimes we can be temped to feel like we need to always be "on" to fit the perceived personas that tend to be paired with our job titles. So, incase any of that had been holding you back form joining so far, we invite you to join and come as you are,  give what you want to, and receive in kind. Email us to join the our All Coach Slack Channel (coach.collaborative@gmail.com) *This is the last episode of the first season of our podcast. We will be back soon with more voices added in the mix, more perspectives, and more awesome conversations. In the meantime, visit our website, follow us on Instagram, follow us on LinkedIn.

Creating Space for the Coach Community
This week is the first of a two part conversation about what motivated us to create the skeleton for the Coach Collaborative. We speak about how that has been growing over each of our careers and especially in this last year and the impact of the experience of Coaching during Covid.  We speak about some of the needs we are seeing in the larger community, what is causing the deep levels of thirst, and how we hope to provide respite through the virtual watering holes we have gotten started with, including this podcast and our all Coach Slack Channel.  Part 2: Coming next week! Enjoy this conversation? We invite you to connect with and join in! The community is growing :)  Visit our website Follow us on Instagram Follow us on LinkedIn Email us to join the our All Coach Slack Channel (coach.collaborative@gmail.com)

Navigating the Current State of the Coaching Field
In this week's episode we explore some of the current growing pains being experienced in the Coaching field.  There is no doubt that the field has ballooned in the last ten years, and this has both come from and contributed to many businesses and intervention designs that have a narrow focus on outcomes and relegate Coaches to high volume work. While this recipe has impacted those who work in the health and well-being arena more than others, the impact of how the value of the Coach is seen is something that impacts all.  As more and more people pursue Coaching as a profession, we encourage critical thinking about the scope of Coaching jobs, and the environments in which they happen so we can build sustainable career paths for Coaches, and promote the growth of the field with a more accurate view of the value we bring to the table.

Mental Gymnastics
Have you ever thought about what is going on in your mind when you are Coaching someone?  How all of the training, theories, models, practice, feedback, research, evidence, experience, intuition, data, the specific client you are working with and their journey computes in your mind and folds in to the Coaching process? It's a big question, and a hard one to wrap one's mind around. And, the complexity, nuance and sophistication of those inner workings are often not understood or respected by others, which is one of the factors that contributes to people thinking that what we do isn't hard.  In today's episode we hold some space for exploring this idea through the mental gymnastics metaphor, and use a few client examples to illustrate the way this amplifies richness, authentic personalization, intrinsic motivation and sustainability in the change they are pursuing.

Outcomes, Coaching Process & Designing Change
In this week's conversation, we dip our toes in and explore the role of outcomes, the Coaching process, designing for and understanding change. There is so much that can be said on this topic, and we know it is an important one to discuss as how these come together is very timely with the continued growth of the field.  In this episode we speak to the distinction between designing outcomes based on the Coaching process vs designing the coaching process based on outcomes. We know these are two different things from a Coaching vs coaching perspective, and that the level of understanding of the nuance of the Coaching work (or lack there of) has a big impact on what is understood to be a valuable offering for clients.  Intrigued by this conversation?

Finding Your Coaching Voice: Part 1
What is a Coaching voice and how do you find it? In this episode, and first part of this conversation, our hosts discuss common misconceptions of what is a part of a Coaching voice, and how they discovered and came to embody their own.  Through exploring the pros and cons of beginning their Coaching careers working in a call center environment, the pros of high volume work, and early adoption of a growth mindset, Lorene, Megan and Traci give voice to the role of confidence, curiosity, trust and modeling to support the integration of the core competencies and skills into an authentic, aligned and ethical owning of the role, the conversation, and the work with clients.

Join our hosts in opening up the conversation, and hearing about this distinction by three thought leaders who have been experiencing and witnessing the boom of the Coaching field from within over the last decade, the good, the less good, the growth and the misperceptions that we are all engaging with in being a Coach at this time.
