Transformational Coaching - Facilitating a More Positive Self-Concept
Presenter: Liane Hambly
Location: Virtual (a Zoom link will be sent to you a few days before the event, after registration)
Date: Friday, March 5th
Time: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST
Research shows that a positive mind-set is essential for effective career management. Our clients may have the information they need, rationally understand how to perform in interviews, know how to network, and acknowledge the value of stepping outside their comfort zone – yet a lack of self-belief, confidence, and assertiveness can inhibit their ability to reach their goals.
This workshop explores how career practitioners can work with clients to create a more positive self-identity and a stronger sense of their own potential and ability to change. Participants will be introduced to a practical and engaging method which draws on transformational coaching, chair work (perceptual positions), and dialogical theory.
Liane Hambly is the Director of Liane Hambly Associates and co-author of Creative Career Coaching, Theory into Practice (2019). She has also authored Let's Talk Guidance, a DVD and learning resource on Career Coaching, and has published several articles on Career Theory, the Role of Faith in Career Decision Making, and Planned Happenstance.
Based in Nottinghamshire, England, Liane works internationally, primarily designing and delivering Professional Development programs for career practitioners. In addition to her own private career coaching practice, Liane has worked as a Senior lecturer in career development for a number of UK Universities.
Liane is a lead trainer for the Career Development Institute and a motivational keynote speaker. To date she has designed and delivered inspirational learning programs to more than 15,000 practitioners throughout the UK and the US. She presented at the Career Thought Leaders Conference in San Diego, worked with Skills Development Scotland to design a coaching approach to Career Guidance, and was a keynote speaker at our Career Counselors Consortium Conference in August 2020.
Work Interventions Network (WIN):
An International Collaboration of Practitioners and Researchers on Unemployment and Underemployment
This particular series is not intended to duplicate the services currently offered in traditional job search groups; rather, it is a pilot for a project that extends beyond those services, offering a group experience that focuses on the social/emotional aspects of being in a job search. Topics to be discussed include Deepening and Sustaining Relationships, Fostering Social Awareness and Reducing Self-Blame, Building Emotional Resilience and Self-Care, and Planning, Exploring and Engaging in the Job Search. Job searching during a pandemic will also be a focus of this group.
There will also be a research component, and participants will be asked to confidentially evaluate their experience once the group has ended.
Free training on Wednesday, March 17, 2021 from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm EST. At the training, there will be an introduction/overview which will include:
The WIN team is thrilled to be able to offer this to career and workforce practitioners and supporting organizations from across the country*.
