Try a Little Tenderness: Mindful Self-Compassion

17 January – 21 February 2023
6:00 pm to 8:00 pm US Eastern Time

Register

A six-session introduction and practicum to learn mindful self-compassion (MSC) both for yourself and your clients. MSC is an evidence-based curriculum developed by Dr. Kristin Neff and Dr. Chris Germer to address shame, inner critic, impostor syndrome, and other forms of destructive self-talk. Peer-reviewed research finds that program participants report lower levels of stress and anxiety and greater emotional resilience.

The series will introduce some of the neuroscience underlying our tendency toward negative self-talk and rumination, and will explore more than a dozen meditative and contemplative practices that have been shown to make a difference.

Virtual workshop

Have you begun to realize that in today’s world all leaders must be inclusive leaders? This realization is pushing together the fields of leadership development and diversity, equity, and inclusion.

If we’re not leading inclusively, we’re actually not leading at all in some crucial dimensions. For coaches and other leaders who grow leaders, expanding our capacities to notice, appreciate, and cultivate the weird and wonderful resources of the most diverse range of human beings has become imperative to our work.

If we’re not coaching inclusively, we’re actually not coaching the whole person who stands in front of us as our client. For this reason, the International Coach Federation recently revised its account of the “core competencies” of coaching to hold up the importance of the context, culture, and identity of our clients.

Coaching, Leading, and Living Inclusively: Gender, Sex, and the Body builds participants’ capacities to be present to diverse human experiences of our bodies, erotic energies, and relationships to gender.

Have you ever left a conversation and felt uneasy, wondering what the other person is really thinking or feeling, or telling yourself ‘I really messed that up?’

Have you avoided conversations because it felt too difficult to take them on – conversations like giving feedback, dealing with conflict in a close relationship, or addressing sensitive workplace issues?

Grounded in science related to our sense-making process, our emotional ‘survival’ systems and the power of stories, this program gives you the knowledge, skills and practical frameworks to transform ‘difficult’ conversations into ‘relationship-building’ conversations.
