Coaching People Who Are Different From You

Do you find yourself coaching people who are different from you? Perhaps they are of a different age, race, gender or sexual orientation. As coaches, we pride ourselves on asking questions and listening so being different shouldn’t matter, right? Well, not exactly. We are still human. This interactive session will focus on the human side of coaching. You will specifically learn how our implicit bias and blindspots may interfere with us building the most trustful coaching relationships possible with clients that are different from us. 

In addition to what was mentioned above, participants will learn: 

  • Why coaching people different from oneself is a vital skill 

  • A history of diversity, equity and inclusion approaches and why these approaches have failed in organizations 

  • Common missteps that humans take when interacting with people different from ourselves, and how to recognize and avoid these missteps.

  • What coaches need to know about anti-racism

This session will be highly interactive so come ready to participate! Participants will also have an opportunity to ask questions without judgement and practice approaches through interacting with their colleagues.

Participants will earn 1 Core Competency CCE for attending this webinar.
