Erickson's Response to COVID-19

Erickson’s vision has always been to change the world, one conversation at a time. Now is that time. We want to make sure everyone continues to have easier access to coach training, and we are here to help make that happen for you! 

This is a challenging time for all of us. It is also an opportunity to empower as many people as we can to harness the power of Solution-Focused thinking and coaching tools. These tools have never been more needed to face these uncertain and extraordinary times. Our commitment is to provide easier access to all the personal, professional and spiritual development programs you need. 

Here’s how we plan to support every aspiring and seasoned coaching enthusiast out there. 

Accessible Online Coach Training

To make our virtual online coach training accessible to those of you who have children at home and/or dependents whose needs come first, we are introducing additional online classes during later hours of the day, when you (hopefully!) have some “me” time to focus on learning Solution-Focused skills through online training and coaching goals.

Coaching Support During the COVID Outbreak.

Coaching Support During the COVID Outbreak: how can coaches use their skills to make the most difference during the COVID outbreak? To support Erickson coaches worldwide during the outbreak Rosa Tkacova, MD, PCC and Paul Gossen, PCC, will host this ongoing webinar series. People will be invited to share with coaching peers where they are at in their personal and professional lives and the challenges they face right now. We will introduce coaching tools and a transformational mindset that anyone can use to support others. 

Time: Weekly on Wednesdays at 9:00am PDT (6:00pm CET), from March 18 - April 22, 2020. 

The Eco Coaching Series

The Eco Coaching Series addresses the question: how can coaches empower ecology transformation in the face of COVID-19 and economic uncertainty? This new area of coaching development will be introduced with six 1-hour live online sessions. Presenters include Marilyn Atkinson, Peter Stefanyi, Christopher Cooke, Paul Gossen, and Rosa Tkacova. On Monday, April 6, 2020, there will be a live online panel discussion with all presenters to begin the series. This program offers an introduction to a transformational ecology mindset and the inner motivation to drive a shift in global consciousness. We will build a deep understanding of the holistic practices needed to maintain ecological integrity in all areas of life and work. We will develop an Agility mindset and the team coaching skills required to deliver ground-breaking results in ecology projects out in the world.

This series will open into the Eco Coaching Program, which leads to an Erickson Certificate as an Eco Coach. This will be our 40th Anniversary gift from Erickson to all interested coaches.

The Mindfulness Series: How to Meet Trauma with Inner Peace

We are meeting COVID-19 and the self-isolation requirement with the opportunity to calm ourselves, reflect, and uplift each other in difficult times. The six Mindfulness classes, videos, and small exercise programs included in this series are for all of us as coaches, not only for ourselves but for those we coach, especially those now on the front lines with COVID-19. All of us are on the front lines if we are coaching clients and friends going through various stages of fear. Many people are not used to isolation and the process of inward pondering that accompanies being alone. 

Presenters include Marilyn Atkinson, Kim Leischner, Paul Gossen, Moera Saule, and Rosa Tkacova, with others to be announced. This series includes both live and recorded video sessions.
