Coaching for Self Leadership - 6 weeks in Japanese and English

Overview Details

Facebook Event in Japanese

Deepen your Coaching Skills in Six Weeks! 

As coaches, our goal is to support self leadership. We create space for deep self empathy so that clients can honor their values and lead from compassion, curiosity and courage. Coaching is a powerful process that helps people address the most challenging issues of our times.

In this course, we will explore 6 aspects of coaching that support leadership:

  • Embracing the positive intent of the inner critic
  • Supporting alignment with the 8 aspects of Self
  • Experiencing the moment
  • Honoring the wisdom of the body and emotions
  • Deepening awareness of power and privilege
  • Calling out the power

The journey inward includes listening empathically to the wisdom of the internal committee, including the 8 types of inner critics. As you help people self-empathize with their harsh inner voices, they learn how the parts of the psyche are trying to serve and what they are protecting. Critical messages can be transformed when we uncover the positive intent and the needs they are trying to meet. 

One of the most precious gifts we can give our clients is the movement toward self alignment, where their inner world and their outer world match. With a few simple tools, we can support them to access their confidence, clarity, and self-connection. As part of the coaching process, the client moves from awareness, to alignmen, to action.

One of the pathways to alignment is to support clients to experience the moment. By staying in the here and now, our clients become aware of what matters deeply. Honoring their energy, their aliveness, their language, and their longing are all part of this process of awakening.

The body is an amazing resource that we can tap just by getting curious. We will dive into our deepest emotions: witnessing our most vulnerable experiences that we have never dared to feel. At the center of every emotion is pure energy – an exquisite need. It may sound counter-intuitive, but delving into painful experiences can be a revitalizing experience, because it brings us into contact with our deepest need for acceptance.

Most relationships are impacted by the dynamics of power and privilege. As coaches, we can support deeper awareness of systemic issues. From there, we can help our clients build awareness of how they wish to interact when they have less power and privilege, and how they want to interact when they have more.

The practice of calling out the power helps our clients honor their deepest longing and create the kind of world they want to live in. Asking clients to step into their power is a gift. When we challenge them to become more of who they already are, their energy shifts and new possibilities emerge.

Join us for 6 weeks of experiential learning, with plenty of time for demonstrations, practice and feedback.
