Creative Emergence Coaching
Creative Emergence Coaching is based on Principles and Practices of Creative Emergence combined with YOUR unique creativity. This process is organic and flexible, containing concrete and practical approaches as well as creative and intuitive ones. I help you partner with your internal "Creative Source" - that inner wellspring containing your creative potential, your gifts, and your signature expression - to consciously create what's next - in a life-giving way that serves yourself, others, and the whole.
- Use the creative resources within you to inform new work directions, structures, strategies, projects, products, services...and your "signature" approach
- Discover, design, and develop what's next in your work
- Unleash purposeful, meaning-centered work
- Access new dimensions of your creativity
- Learn to use the unknown as a resource
- Develop a solid, structured framework of what you have to offer
- Draw forth your energy, passion, and commitment
- Activate your imagination and intuition; transform creative blocks
- Awaken and partner with your Creative Intuitive Self
My coaching process is based on the knowledge - and the science - that by using whole-person, whole-brain creativity you:
- Get deeper and more surprising solutions than with just left-brain thinking alone
- Quickly access deep layers of your potential and understand big picture patterns
- Discover new and often surprising solutions to both old and new situations
- Feel a sense of connection to something larger than yourself
These are my general packages, but I don't work with a one-size-fits-all appraoch. Your needs may be better served in a different structure and I'm happy to explore what that looks like with you.
I also offer
Creative Facilitation Coaching
For professional facilitators, trainers, coaches, teachers, leaders and anyone who facilitates groups on or offline to:
- Generate novel ideas and activities for your next workshop/event; create compelling content and vibrant, engaging, meaningful, and FUN workshops - on or offline.
- Bring more of your unique creativity and signature style into your workshop - meet participant objectives and exceed their expectations.
- Bring out your participants' creativity and move past resistance to creative activities.
- Learn how to easily modify your existing activities, as well as create all-new ones.
- Feel more confident being spontaneous and improvisational.
I often work with an actual facilitation/design project you have, and we customize the design based on who YOU are and the objectives of the workshop/event. You can already have most of it it designed or none of it designed. I'll meet you where you are. These can be 1-2 hour stand-alone sessions, or done as a 3-month customized package. I also offer public Creative Facilitation workshops. And the Whole-Brain Creative Facilitation Cerification Program is coming out in the fall of 2021.
Creativity Coaching for Coaches
Over one-third of my coaching clients are professional coaches. I work with coaches to help bring more of your unique creativity and ideas to your coaching sessions, and bring out the full-on creativity of your coaching clients using whole-brain, whole-body practices that are customized for who YOU are and your coaching style.
