  • WEBINAR: What does “Intuition” Mean in the Context of Coaching?

    Annie Gelfand, MBA, CPCC, MCC., & Fran Fisher, MCC

    Annie and Fran will co-facilitate a creative exploration of INTUITION in the context of coaching.


    It is said that intuition is always correct but not our interpretation of it. Part of our job as coaches is to honor our intuition in service of creating awareness for our clients as well as moving them forward in some way. Clients come to coaching for change.

    We will address key questions, such as:


    • What is INTUITION?
    • How does your INTUITION show up in your coaching conversations?
    • How do you respond to your “gut” in the moment?
    • When are you leading the client with your INTUITION?

    Our objectives are to empower your coaching mastery with easier access to this powerful resource that is already within you; to help you act on your intuition as a trusted advisor that can be used as a powerful catalyst of change.

    Please come prepared to share your questions, concerns, contributions, and best practices with INTUITION. Annie and Fran will also offer coaching demos. Handout included.


    What you will learn:

    • Examples TO DO; examples NOT to do
    • Exploring some sources of intuition
    • How to distinguish opportunities to offer your intuition
    • How to self-manage for contribution versus leading the client
