Coaching for Self-Leadership

Using Internal Family Systems for Coach and Client Transformation

Zoom Webinar

Coaching for Self Leadership will introduce coaches to the Internal Family Systems model, which will help them work with parts of the psyche that block transformation. The four core ideas of this webinar are:

  1. The natural state of the human psyche is multiplicity. We have many parts, or subpersonalities, each with its own plan for our happiness. This multiplicity is normal and healthy. Problems arise, however, when parts have conflicting agendas: one may yearn for transformation and hire a coach, while another may wish to preserve the status quo and prevent the client from taking the steps they committed to during their coaching session. Both coach and client can judge the blocking part. That’s why understanding the next idea is essential to effective coaching.
  2. All parts are good, even parts with dysfunctional strategies, like criticizing us or distracting us from tasks. When parts are befriended—that is, when they are acknowledged, understood from their perspective, and appreciated for their intentions—they reveal their secret histories and their deep desire to help. All parts are inherently noble, even those vicious inner critics, even those parts that want to binge on something that is not good for us. It is crucial to remember that parts are often not what they seem at first. We must hold all parts, like all clients, with unconditional positive regard.
  3. We are Self. When all the parts step back, what is left is Self. Every major religious and spiritual tradition recognizes Self. It is variously called Spirit, Atman, Tao, Buddha nature, Christ consciousness, or the image of God. The goal of every spiritual path is to access and live from Self. Self is our essence, and it is whole, wise, loving, and good. Coaches can access a critical mass of Self and then help their clients do the same. Indeed, the goal of all coaching is to access this internal resource, which is characterized by eight words beginning with the letter C: calmness, clarity, confidence, curiosity, compassion, connectedness, courage, and creativity.
  4. The main strategy of Coaching for Self Leadership is to introduce the client’s parts to the client’s Self. When parts come into relationship with Self, they begin to heal. When Self is allowed to lead, it brings balance, harmony, and transformation to the inner world. Self-led people can then help bring balance, harmony, and transformation to the external world.

Coaching for Self Leadership is a map of the human psyche, a method for facilitating transformation, and, ultimately, a way of life. The map is simple. It is an equilateral triangle. The lower left angle represents the coach; the lower right angle represents the client; the apex represents Self. This triangle describes the three key relationships for facilitating transformation:

  1. The first relationship, represented by the left side of the triangle, is the coach’s relationship with their inner world. The coach practices accessing a critical mass of Self. This prepares the coach for the second relationship.
  2. The second relationship, represented by the base of the triangle, is the coach-client relationship. This is the foundation of the whole coaching enterprise; everything depends on the quality of this relationship. The coach-client relationship prepares the client for the third relationship.
  3. The third relationship, represented by the right side of the triangle, is the client’s relationship with their internal world. Everything the coach does, all the skills and strategies, are designed to help the client access a critical mass of Self. From there, the client has access to the qualities (the eight C-words) that allow them to heal and transform.

Coaching for Self Leadership expands coach’s awareness by teaching them how to transform themselves, so they can help others transform. Thus, this is model that explains the psyche, offers strategies for working with the psyche, and opens a way for changing the world.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understanding that establishing trust and intimacy with a client depends on first establishing trust and intimacy with one’s own parts.
  2. Understanding that coaching presence depends on accessing a critical mass of Self in oneself.
  3. Understanding that the North Star for every coaching session, for both coach and client, is Self leadership, that is, to access a critical mass of Self, which is just enough Self energy to be curious and compassionate about the inner world.
  4. Understanding that all parts of the client are welcome—no exceptions. What’s in the way is the way.
  5. Understanding the three relationships: coach with their own parts, coach with client, and client with their own parts. Change is relational.

The Internal Family Systems model has three components:

  • Map of the psyche

  • Method of working with the psyche, and

  • Way of life that transforms both coach and client.

Coaches can use IFS, first, to tap their own calm, confident, and creative core and, then, help clients tap the same resource within themselves. This creates a virtuous cycle of deepening awareness and wise action.

IFS is based on four key ideas:

  1. The human mind is naturally multiple. We all have parts or subpersonalities, and some of these parts, like the ones that criticize us, have taken on extreme roles that cause pain and suffering.

  2. All parts are good. No matter how dysfunctional a part may appear, it has a positive intent. Coaches can learn to befriend problematic parts and help clients open space for access to their creative, compassionate, and wise core. In other words, what appears to be in the way is the way.

  3. We are all Self. Self is the calm, confident, creative, and wise core of every human being; it is what every major spiritual tradition seeks to access through meditation, worship, chanting, and other methods. Self is, in fact, easier to access than commonly thought. When parts—the subpersonalities that run our lives—step back, we gain access to Self, our awake, aware, and knowing essence.

  4. The goal of all coaching is Self-leadership.In other words, the goal of every coaching relationship is accessing and living from Self. That is why this course is called “Coaching for Self Leadership.”

Coaching for Self-Leadership is a series of five webinars that will introduce the IFS model and teach you how to use it for your benefit and for your clients’ benefit. The classes will include presentations of new material, demonstrations, and periods of question and answer. Handouts that capture class content will be posted after every webinar, and participants will be given a practice partner from the class. You will also receive recommendations for further study and development.

The five 90-minute webinars will meet every other Tuesday at 11:00 am Eastern Time (US) on the following schedule:

March 26 – The Map

  • You will learn a simple coaching map that incorporates core ideas of the IFS paradigm. This map will orient you in the coaching session and provide you with a North Star for every session you have.

  • We will review the agreements for creating a safe and courageous learning environment.

April 9 – The First Four Tenets

  • You will develop an in-depth understanding of the first four axioms of Coaching for Self Leadership. When you incorporate these axioms into your coach’s operating system, you will naturally access your native calm, clarity, and confidence.

  • You will get your first deep look at the parts that drive our behavior and our clients’ behavior.

  • We will end with a short demo.

April 23 – Protectors: The Workhorses of the Inner Realm

  • You will get a deeper look at one class of parts, called protectors.

  • We will have a long demo with debrief.

  • You will learn about the sixth axiom, how parts relate to each other.

  • We will end with a short demo.

The Evolution of ICF Maryland’s Outreach

We (Still) Need You!

The summer of 2016.  This was the start of Maryland ICF’s official outreach efforts. With the goal of starting small but impacting big, we spent months talking with state and local officials to identify needs within Maryland where professional coaching services could have positive impact.

Fast-forward to today. Two and a half years later, our Chapter – with the help of a handful of amazing volunteers – continues to support Turnaround Tuesday, a jobs movement of BUILD (Baltimoreans United in Leadership Development). The mission of Turnaround Tuesday (TAT) is to: 1) provide a community to help individuals in distressed communities and ex-offenders secure jobs, and 2) work with local organizations to change the hiring culture to support employment for these populations.

Since the inception of TAT, over 500 individuals have been placed with leading employers (187 in 2018!), including Johns Hopkins Health System, University of Maryland Medical System, Broadway Services, Blueprint Robotics, Medstar Health System, Lifebridge Health, and The Parkway Theatre. The overall retention rate across all employment partners is 87%.  Our incredible volunteers have supported these outcomes in a variety of ways and, for that, we are incredibly grateful!

Looking ahead.

TAT

As the number of TAT graduates placed in jobs continues to grow, TAT is committed to helping those individuals maintain and develop in their employment.  To support these evolving needs, we are, once again, calling on volunteer coaches who are interested in providing pro bono coaching to TAT graduates in the graduate’s place of employment. The volunteer commitment is limited to five hours of pro-bono coaching within a period of six months. Interested in learning more? Please contact Janet Ladd at [email protected].

Additional volunteer opportunities

Our Chapter continues to explore ways to promote positive community change and social good, and we have other volunteer possibilities in the works. Please stay tuned for more pro bono coaching opportunities as we grow! To learn more and stay in touch with the Outreach team, please contact Angie Dabbs at [email protected].
