What is vertical development and what might it bring to our coaching?

Building on the work of Jean Piaget with children, Bob Kegan, Suzanne Cook Greuter, Bill Torbert, Jennifer Garvey Berger, Theo Dawson and others have considered how adults can continue to develop in how we experience and think about ourselves and the world. In this session, we’ll look at how a focus on what is often called vertical development might be applied in our coaching and what it might add to our work with individuals and teams. We will also look at the shadow side of vertical development and things we might want to watch out for.

Key takeaways:
 
  1. The difference between “horizontal” development (used in most training and coaching) and “vertical” development?
  2. How you might begin to apply a vertical development approach in your coaching?
  3. Options to assess your developmental stage and the stages of your clients?

How Leaders Get Stuck
Keynote
Speaker

A discovery of what kind of leader I want to become and the ways I limit myself from getting there. As leaders, we tend to make our decisions the same way every time. When we are in distress, we tend to get stuck in the same quicksand for our teams and our organizations. When leaders become frozen, the consequences to the organization, staff, productivity, profits and workflows can be devastating. When leaders are stymied, choices for escaping the situation can be skewed, narrow and solutions may seem non-existent. 

Key take-aways:

  1. Objectives: Why is my capacity as a leader limited
  2. Learning how to unleash my potential
  3. Learning how to establish an aspiration to direct my goals and decisions

Tune In To Lead

We know that listening is a critically important leadership skill. This means listening effectively to others to build alignment, engagement and accountability. But equally if not more important is listening to our deeper selves to ensure motivation, high performance, and fulfillment.

Most of us don’t do either kind of listening very well, or very frequently. And that’s because true listening is hard to master; it’s fundamentally about being present, tuning in, and connecting to our personal purpose. How can we do that in an overstimulating world that’s becoming even more demanding?

This is a conversation about the benefits of and barriers to deep listening, and how we can do better for ourselves and our clients. A variety of strategies will be discussed. One specific innovative, yet traditional, experiential approach will be included in the conversation, namely engaging with horses- it may not be what you think!

Key take-aways

  1. The relationship between listening and engagement, effective decision-making, and personal fulfillment
  2. Strategies for successfully tuning in, both to others and to ourselves

Finding the Fun in Coaching

We’ll explore where the “fun” in coaching lies.  Beyond the fulfillment, monetary and psychic income we derive from doing what we do, we’ll look at what makes it fun, for us and those we coach.  

Fun can be defined in so many ways — light-hearted pleasure, enjoyment, amusement, boisterous joviality, merrymaking entertainment — there’s probably a great deal more of it in our work than we may realize. So we’ll identify where it is and what it looks like — please be prepared to share your own personal stories of where you find fun in your work — how do we know when we experience it, what can we make of it and what benefits do we and those we coach derive from adding more of it to the mix.

 

Key take-aways:

  1. Determine what “fun” is and where does it fit in the coaching process
  2. The differences between “fun” and “funny,” and what are the appropriate uses of fun
  3. Increase our sensitivity to the fun we derive from coaching
  4. Improve our creation of fun for our own benefit and the benefit to those we coach
  5. Have fun while exploring the fun in coaching

Unlocking Solutions to Extreme Povery
Ted
Speaker

When I became a volunteer with the Shanta Foundation, an international NGO headquartered in Durango, CO, serving the extreme poor in Myanmar, I had no idea I would become part of a cutting-edge movement in community led development.  I had no idea I would develop powerful insights and expertise about global poverty.  Or that Shanta’s unique approach to community mobilization, leadership development and community banking would actually work, facilitating more that 35 villages in finding paths out of extreme poverty, even in under the terror of the military dictatorship. But almost 15 years later, that’s exactly what’s happened.

All of you are coaches—you get the potential inherent in the leaders you work with and how, with a little support and insight, most can become an even greater force for the good in their worlds.  But for some reason, most development approaches have yet to translate that dynamic to unlocking solutions to extreme poverty.  We are still bringing our colonialist, racist, sexist biases to this work, and despite incredibly sincere and expensive initiatives, often end up either enabling or simply not helping those we aim to serve.  I’m excited to explain more about Shanta’s approach to the work, because it is tightly aligned with the principles of the work that we do every day as coaches and consultants. And because it works—bringing about sustainableand outrageously uncommon results.  

Key take-aways:

  • How and why traditional approaches to poverty reduction fall short
  • Key principles to activate local leadership and embed agency and sustainability into the work
  • How to become an influencer for unlocking sustainable solutions to extreme poverty
