*** NEW from
the School of Shadow Coaching®:
Shadow Coaching: Level II,
1-Day Advanced Intensive***
Perspective is both the angle you see yourself and your life from as
well as the viewing height. The higher the perspective,
the clearer the view. A Shadow Coach helps you increase
your perspective by helping you see what you're not
paying attention to, by asking illuminating questions,
introducing paradoxes, and co-creating stimulating
arenas and environments that will expand your thinking,
as your world unfolds. - Donna Karlin
This advanced Level II training will take the skills,
tools and concepts of Level I and expand their use and
application. Through real-life case studies we will take
the cases apart, step by step, identifying applicable
models, approaches and shadows that emerge.
Nothing is as
perfect as you can imagine it, nor as horrible.
Intangibles such as fantasies, beliefs, ideas and
concepts may last and influence the choices we make in
our lives. You can help shift how people think; how they
see themselves and how they view the world. That is how
you can be a catalyst for change in the world.
Master the skills you need to get beyond your own limitations and help transform lives, leaders and the organizations and communities they serve. Make it safe for people to reveal, identify and embrace their shadows and become all of who they are.
There is a shadow-like energy that exists which is mostly hidden from the conscious mind yet contributes to the overall shape of one's personality. According to Carl Jung, the shadow is that part of the personality one chooses not to see. Usually something one is ashamed of, the shadow is comprised of whatever one cannot accept in one’s idea of oneself. Not being integrated or even acknowledged by conscious mind, the shadow sits and waits in the unconscious. If it's not acknowledged, it doesn't disappear, it goes under the surface, continuing to influence the person. The solution is not to repress the client's shadow but to shine a light on it, help them acknowledge it and learn to incorporate it into daily life. If not acknowledged, the shadow will take on a life of its own and block critical energy. However, once one starts to acknowledge their shadows, integration begins and incredible positive energy returns.
Coaching a client around their shadows allows that energy to be accepted and bring a greater balance to their lives. The shadow must be neither repressed nor fully exploited but, through coaching, to transform it into appropriate channels, and bringing it into balance with the conscious personality. Sometimes it is not the darker aspects of the unconscious but the very best parts, the hidden talents and strengths that emerge. Acknowledging the presence of previously unrealized gifts takes courage as, integrating them demands a change in lifestyle. Through Laser Coaching®, we will shine a light on these unconscious gifts, helping clients create change by choice and evolve into their level of excellence.
In this one day intensive training, you will master the most powerful and effective coaching skills, ask provocative and illuminating questions to identify and break through the
limitations of the shadow and help clients (and you, as coaches) shift from a limited to a limitless world.
This is transformational coaching.
