3-hour interactive workshop presented by John Whitehead, PCC
Every day, over a period of some 10 years, Abu Salem would show up at the border crossing with a donkey laden with heavy sacks of straw. And every day, the suspicious border commander would force him to stop and empty out all the sacks that were on the donkey’s back. The border commander would then carefully search through the sacks and their contents: but he never found anything of value at all. And then when Abu Salem was on his way across the border, the border commander would call out: “I am certain that you are smuggling something.” A number of years later, after the border commander had retired, fate brought the two men together again. “Tell me please,” beseeched the retired border commander, “What were you smuggling across the border all those years?” “Donkeys,” smiled Abu Salem in reply.

Cognitive Behavioural Coaching—Techniques and Applications
3.5-hour experiential workshop with Maya Libben, PhD, R.Psych
In this workshop we will review the general concepts that underlie the effectiveness of cognitive behavioural techniques and learn how these can be applied to coaching in a number of different environments. The goal is to provide coaches with evidence-based tools to produce actionable change among clients. The construct of emotional intelligence will be used to understand how cognitive behavioural tools can be applied in a flexible manner that is tailored to individual clients. This workshop is based on experiential learning where didactics is combined with group/individual activities to consolidate learning.
