6:30 PM Networking 7:00 PM Program At the heart of many client dilemmas are misguided attempts to solve unsolvable problems. Why? Because the alternatives are cast as either/or “solutions” when in fact two seemingly contradictory truths are involved. Examples include setting goals and remaining flexible, finding meaningful work and acknowledging realities, seeking clarity and allowing ambiguity. This will include a “A Sneak Preview” of Dr. Kise’s upcoming Presentation at the Midwest International Coach Federation Conference in Kansas this June. Learn how polarity thinking tools help coaches and clients understand when they need to actively manage such ongoing dilemmas and how to do it. See how polarity thinking tools - Help coaches identify their own biases or blind spots that may be keeping them from addressing very real client fears or needs. - Allow breakthroughs for clients as they realize that instead of feeling pulled apart, they can consciously work to benefit from what each pole has to offer. - Provide deep questioning practices that let clients understand why they are holding so tightly to one pole and how they might benefit from the truths of the opposite pole. - Can make Jungian psychological type concepts, popularized through the MBTI®, more accessible, useful and accepted by clients and organizations.
Concurrent Session: Turning Entrenched Arguments into Energy for Moving Forward Friday, 20 March, 2:45 PM Often, organizations solve a problem, only to find out they’ve created others. In this session, participants will help them learn to spot “polarities” where each side holds valuable truths that are key to overall success, and then how to channel the energy being lost to debate into positive strategies for effective change. Experience how to use the polarities model to introduce type preferences, leading to a deep understanding of the value of every preference. Then, participate in mapping a key polarity through the lens of a given personality type; through a “live” case study, see how to help groups listen to each other’s values, find a common purpose, unearth the deeper fear, and create mutually acceptable action steps.
