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. //

Leadership: Using Active Listening Skills

The Leadership Using Active Listening Skills interactive presentation identifies what active listening is, why leaders/managers should use it, and how to use it within team and personal settings so team members and other people in your life feel safe, heard, and valued.

This is a presentation Elizabeth has used for non-profits and for-profit managers and companies. At the end she will deconstruct her presentation with attendee’s, so you will know how to use the ICF competencies (or any topic on which you are knowledgeable) to construct a presentation you can market on behalf of your coaching practice.

Elizabeth Dickinson has worked as a life coach, speaker/presenter, writer and landlord. She has coached/presented in over 40 for-profit and non-profit organizations, including Land O’Lakes and Performance Excellence Network. She has written coaching books, including “The Coach Approach for Leaders: Get the Best from Everyone, Every Time”. Education includes: B.Ed. Honors degree/Cambridge University; M.A. in Psychology/Lesley University; life coaching certification/Adler Graduate School. She’s a former board member of the Minnesota Chapter of the International Coach Federation, where she initiated the Prism award which recognized organizational coaching excellence at Barr Engineering, Cargill, Pepsi and nonprofits including Better Futures Minnesota and Pregnancy Choices.

Former non-coaching professions include: professional actor, teacher, counselor and organizer, manager or lobbyist for the Minnesota AIDS Project, the Association for Non-Smokers, the National P.T.A., and Healthy Legacy – on topics ranging from comprehensive sex education, increased healthcare funding, and the smoking ban, to eliminating harmful chemicals from consumer products (BPA/baby bottles) and increasing public educational standards. She is a long-term board member of both the state and national Clean Water Action boards, Community Power MN and is a former board member/honoree of her district council on neighborhood issues. She has also run for political office several times. Last year she ran (and lost) for St. Paul mayor for the Green Party.

Other passions include competitive and social ballroom dancing, and creative writing, including a novel and musical based on the true-life stories of two 18th century female pirates who served on the same ship. She lives in St. Paul with her husband and two cosseted cats in a 1911 home with solar panels.
