Delivered online with six 2-hour live virtual sessions, and two 1-hour Q&A sessions, using the ZOOM platform, with practice for around 2 hours in trios between live sessions.

About the course
It’s no secret that today’s leaders are being asked to navigate contexts that are changing at exponential rates. Many of these leaders wake up each morning to discover that not only have things changed but that what they knew to be true, what they understood about how the world worked, is no longer sufficient to address the day’s challenges. If you are a coach or other support professional, you, too, may be looking for new ways to support your clients—and possibly even yourself– in this fast-changing world. Growth Edge Coaching provides that way.
In Conversations at the Edge, our Growth Edge Coaching introductory workshop, you’ll learn to listen in new ways and ask different sorts of questions—ones that enable you to uncover the ways people make sense of their world and the way they understand their own stories. These new ways of inquiring and listening will allow you to support your clients as they move through developmental transitions, helping them transform their stories and what they believe is possible.
Structure of the Course
Vernice, Jennifer, Patrice, Rodney and Carolyn will be delivering this workshop in six live 2-hour sessions, plus two Q&A sessions. Between each live session participants will work in groups – usually trios – for approximately 2-3 hours each time. We will assign you buddies in the best possible time zone for scheduling. Meeting with your buddies between sessions is essential, and you need to commit to this part of the workshop for your own learning and to support your group.
If you cannot attend a live session you may listen to the recording of the live session, complete the group work, then complete a form to demonstrate learning. This is essential if you want to complete the workshop to receive ICF credits or attend advanced Growth Edge Coaching workshops.
Because we believe diversity is crucial to our personal, professional, and collective development, we are intentionally inviting participants from a variety of backgrounds.
We welcome people of all races, colors, abilities, religions, genders, and sexual orientations to join our workshops. We will do everything we can to welcome, hear and see you, and to represent you in our materials and activities.
Dates & Time
To make this course accessible to people all over the globe, we have staggered the session times. This means you likely won’t join every session live and may need to watch some session recordings. We realize that this may be surprising, and we believe that you can get everything you need from the course by participating asynchronously. Recordings are made available within 48 hours of each live session, and live trio work between sessions provides an opportunity to discuss and practice the material.
