Free Coaching Webinars with ICF CCE's

Sign up for reminders, and we’ll email you invitations to our free coaching cafe webinars.

We believe that keeping your coaching skills up to date is really important and we’ve made this easy for you by offering FREE Coaching Cafe Webinars! 

The Coaching Cafes are short (1/2 hour) webinars on key coaching topics that are thought provoking and interactive and you can now earn ICF CCE’s for attending the webinars.

Continuing professional development is a common requirement across many professional industries.  It is an important part of your development as a coach because it ensures that you are:

  • continuously developing your professional coaching skills
  • keeping sharp and up to date with your coaching knowledge
  • focussing on the ICF core competencies of coaching
  • satisfying your requirement for the renewal of your ICF credential

The renewal of your ICF credential requires a number of Continuing Coach Education to be completed in the three years since the initial award of your credential or since your last credential renewal, as follows:

  • Associate Certified Coach (ACC) at least 30 hours
  • Professional Certified Coach (PCC) at least 40 hours
  • Master Certified Coach (MCC) at least 40 hours

For more information about the ICF requirements click here: https://coachfederation.org/icf-credential/renew-credential

The Coaching Café program offers a total of 24 hours of CCE and allows you to:

  • Pick and choose which topics are interesting to you and to earn CCE’s for those topics
  • Attend the entire program (held each Friday at 12 noon AEST) to pick up the total number of hours you need
  • Spread your professional development out over a period of time, rather than setting aside large blocks of time
  • Create a shared learning experience where we stretch our skills and learn from each other.

In order to achieve the CCE you simply need to:

  • Register for the webinar
  • Attend the live webinar and participate in the conversation
  • Attend for the entire period (30 minutes or 60 minutes)

We look forward to you joining us at the Coaching Café and assisting you to continue your professional coaching development.

Calling All Cars – Leveraging the Resources of your Clients

7th February, Midday Melbourne Time

‘Nothing that I’ve ever achieved has come without consistent application until I achieve the result.’

It was a powerful statement that I made recently that really caused me to stop and reflect. Upon reflection I discovered that times when I haven’t achieved what I wanted, were times characterised by procrastination and intermittent effort. The other thing that I noticed that gets in the way is the pursuit of perfection, over consistency. To be honest, it can lead to ‘giving up too early’ if things aren’t perfect.

Therefore, consistency is a big theme that I have been focusing on this year – consistency in everything I do – eating, exercising, coaching, connecting with people, talking with my team, following through on major projects – the list goes on.

Join us for our Coaching Café where will we explore the theme of pursuing consistency, rather than perfection.

Coaching Through the Eyes of the Assessor

14th February, Midday Melbourne Time

When you’ve listened to hundreds of coaching recordings and completed thousands of coaching assessments, there are a few lessons that stand out.

In this Coaching Café, you have the unique opportunity to learn from one of the most experienced coaches in Australia, our very own Brigitte Calvert.

What is the difference between a competent coaching recording, and a ‘not yet competent’?

What makes an assessor’s heart sing?

And what makes it sink?

Join Brigitte for a fascinating look at what great coaching sounds like through the eyes (and ears!) of an assessor.

Targeting questions to different personalities

21st February, Midday Melbourne Time

‘How to coach different personalities’ is a common goal set in our coaching programs by participants and it’s a common struggle in the workplace – to adapt your style to meet the varied different needs and styles of members of your team. For a starter, you have to work out ‘What is the style or preference of the team member?’ and then ‘How can I frame this question so that it is more appealing or makes more sense to the team member?’ and then deliver the question.

‘It’s too much to think about’ declared one participant. ‘And I’ve got too many team members. Why can’t they just adapt to my style?’ It’s a good question! But as a coach, it’s not enough to just coach using our own preference. In this Coaching Café we will look at the application what we know about behavioural preferences to coaching.

  • Say they will deliver, but don’t!
