December 4, 2019,
4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
This webinar features a dialogue between Akasha (Pete Saunders), PhD, PCC, and Magda Kaspary, ACC, sharing how they integrate Intercultural Development into their coaching practice. Magda and Akasha both coach people across various sociocultural differences. They think that cultural understanding and humility are important skills for coaches. Having this understanding enables coaches to be present to other dimensions that make up clients’ multitudinous identities (and consciousness). They have found that clients appreciate it when coaches demonstrate curiosity and understanding about some of the unique challenges they face because of their social identity or location. Coaches do not need to be experts about social identities, such as sexual orientation, gender trends, intergenerational issues, religion, class, racism, etc. However, it is important to build self-awareness about them and demonstrate curiosity and understanding about some of the challenges they present. This can make us more expansive coaches.
Some aspects that will be addressed:
The benefits Intercultural Development brings to Coaches and to Clients.
Methodologies and tools in support of Coaching and Intercultural Development
Practical ways to enhance Intercultural Development awareness for Coaches and to Clients.
