Statement from President Katrina S. Rogers and Provost and Senior Vice President Monique L. Snowden Regarding Recent EventsCarol Hirashima2021-04-30T18:40:23-07:00
The tumultuous events that occurred in our nation’s capital and across the country yesterday have rattled many of our assumptions about how democracy is supposed to work. Contemporary media and technology make bearing witness to extant and future civil unrest more immediate, frequent, and emotionally taxing. While many of our university constituents have been and are watching the events unfold in our nation’s capital, we are particularly concerned for the safety of our staff, students, faculty, alumni and trustees who live and work in the DC area. Being a citizen in a democratic society, and specifically in the United States, emboldens [...]
Beyond the Dyad: Three Perspectives on Peer Group Coaching Speaker: Erek J. Ostrowski, PhD, PCC Peer group coaching (PGC) has grown in popularity as a cost-effective learning and development solution for individuals and organizations. When delivered skillfully, it can provide a fertile context for learning by easing isolation, spreading useful knowledge and ideas, and fostering critical reflection that leads to new ways of thinking about old problems. However, coaching in this setting requires understanding the complex and often mystifying social processes that shape learning and change in groups. A group coach must create a learning environment large enough for multiple people, must [...]
Cultural Efficacy—Evidence Based Practice By Diane P. Zimmerman, Ph.D. Wednesday November 18, 2020, 4-5 p.m. PT As a 1998 Fielding graduate, I applied theory to my teachings about practice-based coaching. The work of Albert Bandura (1986 & 1993) served as a foundation for explorations into efficacy. Bandura found that the more goal-driven, the firmer the commitment to follow through—two important coaching outcomes. In other words, efficacy promotes successful action. By exploring efficacy relationships with others, I found a pathway to cultural efficacy and a way to build joint positive futures. I define cultural efficacy as the capability to effectively learn [...]
How can we Learn until we first learn to reflect? As coaches, our goal is to assist our client in finding their own solutions to the challenges they present. To succeed in this goal requires that we give our best work. We must create a trusting space, practice presence, leverage deep listening, and use powerful questions. But what if that isn’t enough? It is foundational to the coaching process that the client has the ability to reflect on their experience in such a way that we can help facilitate their breakthrough in creating new meaning and awareness. But what if [...]
Must-know truths about the neurobiology of learning and change What do you know of the intelligence that lives in your fingers and toes, the beat of your heart, the set of your shoulders? What clues do you see – or perhaps, fail to see – when your client sighs, shifts in their chair, or settles into stillness? There is a vast wisdom in the movements, sensations, tissues, organs, and rhythms of the human body. But in ordinary everyday life, few of us are taught that this intelligence even exists, much less how to make use of it. As coaches, we need [...]
Abrasive Leadership: The result of a “perfect storm” Abrasive leaders, at any level, rub coworkers the wrong way. Their aggressive management styles generate interpersonal friction that erodes motivation, reduces creativity, and worse yet, causes distress in those around them. In today’s high-pressured environment, organizations cannot afford the costs of disruptions caused by abrasive leaders, including paralyzing productivity, workarounds, the loss of valued employees, and potential harassment litigation. Sadly, many of us have had the unpleasant experience of working with such individuals. Often technically skilled or good at getting things done, they are promoted to the ranks of management, receiving praise for [...]
Hosted by Fielding Faculty: Valerie Bentz, David Blake Willis and Rich Appelbaum. Special Guests: Mary Jo Deegan, Rima Lunin Schultz, Graham Cassano, Maurice Hamington, and Jennifer Scott There are remarkable parallels between Jane Addams’ work at Hull- House and the challenges we face today. The Chicago Massacre of 1919 (“Race riot”) was sparked by the killing of black teenager Eugene Williams through his drowning in Lake Michigan after drifting into a white beach area. The turmoil lasted eight days and resulted in thirty- eight deaths and almost 500 injuries. Like today’s pandemic, the Spanish Flu of 1918-1919 resulted in huge devastation [...]
Guest Blogger: Keith Byler, D.O., M.A., PCC It is widely said in the coaching world that one need not be a subject matter expert in the client’s field in order to coach effectively. And yet it is also apparent that many coaches choose to specialize in one or more areas in which they have an interest, and to further build upon those interests with special training specific to them. For example over the years I have coached a few clients who had some degree of ADD. Yet I don’t consider myself an ADD coach, and in fact if that were the [...]
