Coaching has emerged as a distinctive competency and a professional calling. It is an important function that supports learning and intentional change. This workshop will outline, experimentally explore, and practice the skills that constitute effective intervention from a Gestalt perspective. Organizational consultants, coaches, business and human service professionals will find this workshop particularly useful in learning: Gestalt theory, concepts and methods; tools for facilitating individual and small group change and development; and data based-based observations about one’s use of self and the impact of one’s presence as an intervener and coach. Extensive skill building sessions, with faculty consultation and feedback are built into this workshop.

Participants are supported in practicing the methods and tools that lead to effective coaching interventions to promote client awareness and enhanced choice. This is an intensive introduction to the larger ICF-accredited Gestalt Coaching Program (GCP) sponsored through the Gestalt Center for Coaching.

Participants are guided in exploring and practicing the methods and tools which lead to effective and masterful coaching interventions. The rich feedback environment of the workshop provides a rare and rich environment supporting transformational learning.

The goals of this 3-day workshop are to:

  • Foundational Gestalt principles, concepts, and methods
  • The differences and links between coaching presence and coaching use of self
  • Intervention skills for in-the-moment opportunities
  • Strategies for developing Awareness IQ
  • The 7 dimensions of Awareness IQ
  • Feedback skills
