    Are you interested in learning about how change management can enhance your coaching to support a client through a transformative journey?

    This engaging session will bring a fresh look at the change curve; how our clients experience change; and ultimately how to adopt, internalize, and own the change. It will provide suggestions for helping clients navigate large changes on a personal, professional, and organizational level. 


    • 1 Resource Development

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Develop a baseline understanding of how the “change curve” works to map out a path towards transformation.

    2. Explore multiple layers of how your clients are experiencing change.

    3. Leverage powerful questions and insights at key points along the change curve to evoke transformation for your clients.

    ACMP/ICF Task Force representatives will share recommendations and engage the audience in contributing to the ongoing collaboration of “The Power of Both”.

      Vertical Development: An Innovative New Way to Think About Leadership and Change

      4 Part Series:

      • Module 1- Laying the Foundation
      • Module 2- The Stages of Vertical Development

      Often, when leaders talk about where they need help, they name tactical issues like delegating, leading change, executive presence, difficult boss relationships, and so on. While important, these challenges arise from how we are looking at the world not how the world actually is.

      The traditional way of thinking about leadership and change management is insufficient for today’s fast-changing and complex world. We need a new approach because we need more leadership capacity to meet our challenges.

      Come learn why this is such a significant need, then be introduced to Vertical Development, a framework and process that enables leadership maturity – to literally “grow up!”

      Consider where your clients are in their maturity journey and learn about the levers for growing their leadership capacity to make your coaching and consulting even more impactful.

      What if you can help your clients address their challenges and achieve their goals by helping them look at them (and others) differently? Join us for this 4-part series!
