ICF Wisconsin Presents

Coaching Through the Discomfort Zone by Marcia Reynolds, MCC

What do you do when a client is stuck and you are not sure what to say? This session will look at the power of disruption in coaching, and how you can develop both the skills and the courage to spark the uncomfortable yet amazing mental shifts needed for change. When you become good at using the discomfort zone in coaching, your clients will not only see new possibilities for action, they will remember these mind-stretching moments forever.

In this session, you will:

  • Learn how the process of “breakthrough” actually works in the brain and how you can best facilitate this process when coaching.
  • Practice listening from the three major processing centers in your body so you know what questions to ask that will trigger the brain to formulate a new awareness.
  • Explore practices to manage your discomfort in uncomfortable conversations.


This event is being offered as a teleclass and participants are eligible for 1.5 Core Competency CCEU's
