Coaches’ Deeper Connection Adventure

Wednesday, June 12, 2019

Sheraton Station Square Hotel

11:15 A.M. to 1:30 P.M.

by Tom Volkar

CCE’s: 1.5 (.5 core/1.0 resource)

A participatory adventure for coaches, consultants and other professionals who must clearly communicate value in order to attract ideal clients.

Using focused urgency and peer interviewing while following core contribution guidelines participants will go within to:

  1. uncover hidden gems of possibility,
  2. use them in a formula to craft an introductory value message and
  3. practice declaring it to an audience of their colleagues.

Core Contribution Guidelines

  • Vulnerability connects.
  • Less is more.
  • Results trump services.
  • Depth increases credibility.
  • Every experience is valid.

Your core contribution (expressed, valued true calling) is found at the intersection of your ideal client’s deep need and your deep fulfillment.  By championing and expressing your unique capacities, earned as a result of your deepest wounds, you place yourself in an ideal position to express value.

Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of innate core value as seen in the eyes of others and possibly with a well-crafted message expressing that value.
