Guest Speakers: Kristine Conway, MS, PCC, President, Effective Focus, Inc.
Luncheon Program:

Breaking Free of Self Imposed Barriers: Implementing Organizational Change Through More Effective Leadership Skills

Based on the three International Coach Federation competencies used to develop professional coaches - Presence, Powerful Questioning, and Direct Communication - this session is designed to help those who lead others distinguish between Power and Influence as they embrace coaching as a leadership style. Each competency will be explored through interactive exercises to help increase participants’ understanding and personal effectiveness. Participants will gain an understanding of how to:

  • Build trust by developing their own inspiring presence through increasing self-awareness, identifying what behaviors/experiences trigger less than effective reactions, and how to self-manage for better outcomes.
  • Empower others by staying curious through the art of asking questions that move the other toward their own solution.
  • Support an adult-to-adult relationship through direct communication where communicating directly provides the greatest benefit to the situation.
Venue: Arlington Hall at Oak Lawn Park
3333 Turtle Creek Blvd.
Dallas, TX 75219
