This new area of coaching development will be introduced with six 45-60-minute live online sessions. Presenters include Marilyn Atkinson, Peter Stefanyi, Christopher Cooke, Paul Gossen, and Rosa Tkacova. 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.
This series of programs will be an ad hoc group of presentations for parents with stay-at-home families during the suggested isolation period. We particularly wanted to make available a small series of presentations for teens between the ages of 12 and 16 who are home from school. We welcome both Erickson Coaches and parents to participate in these events.
Teen as Coach is a new Erickson program currently organized to be a summer camp in August, which has been reinvented as a small series of ‘taster’ programs due to the outbreak of COVID-19. This program is designed especially for teenagers between the ages of 12 and 16. Various Erickson trainers and parents will be involved in these ad hoc presentations.
In April/May, Nadezhda Mihaylova, a well-known and senior Parent as Coach European trainer from Erickson, will begin the celebrated Parent as Coach program as an Erickson online program. This will be a separate, registered event with more information to be shared at a later date
