Bev Lutz ICF membership provides incredible professional networking opportunities, professional and personal growth, and opportunities to explore my strengths as I volunteer in service of my profession.  My chapter really helps me stay current with coaching, thought leadership, and learn-n-earn (CEU’s) from professional development events.  But it’s the supportive coach-friends and collaborators who have made membership for me priceless. //

Most of us would deny we ever rescued a client.  We faithfully recite the statement, “We believe our clients are resourceful and they have the answers inside of them.”  However, when the stakes are high, we are tempted to step in and expand awareness for them.  We think we are simply helping by sharing a story, providing a bit of information, or suggesting alternatives in hopes that our efforts wake people up to better outcomes or solutions.  The reality is the opposite often happens. When we step in, we remove their opportunity to discern what is important, discover their path forward and develop self-efficacy and resiliency. This keeps them playing small in the world and limited to the information we imparted on them rather than them stumbling and learning from each experience. In addition, it greys the lines of coaching, impacts the coach’s personal credibility and ultimately, extends into the perception and validity of the entire coaching field. 


Join us in hearing compelling stories, supporting data and the value of releasing responsibility. Attendees will see how allowing clients to falter can help them better find their way to a greater story.
