We invited Valerie Fawcett and Rona Rowe to share their expertise on how they have used the Functional Fluency model and its accompanying behavioural profiling tool (TIFF) in coaching people at all levels in organisations.

 

In coaching, we are often helping people to gain insights into their own behaviours and those of others in order to work or live together in more rewarding and effective ways.

The Functional Fluency model promotes people’s ability to gain these insights by describing the behaviours we use when we are being effective as managers, colleagues, friends, partners or parents, and the ineffective behaviours which waste our energy and can cause unhelpful conflict and a lack of self-respect. It also guides people in how to make the behavioural changes they need to develop.

In this webinar, we interviewed Valerie and Rona to find out:

  • The Fabulous Five behaviours which enable relationships to thrive
  • The four Purple Pitfall behaviours we all fall into and how to get out of them
  • How to be a “functionally fluent” coach and use Functional Fluency with your clients.

Valerie and Rona shared details of the model and explained how Functional Fluency can be useful for your particular client base and which are the best ways to use this in your own coaching relationships.

 

SPEAKER BIOS - Valerie Fawcett/Rona Rowe

Valerie Fawcett is an experienced coach and trainer of coaches. She works with managers and leaders on developing their practice through coaching and training using Functional Fluency and other models from Transactional Analysis.  She is also a workplace mediator

Valerie believes that managers’ self-awareness and understanding of how to use their strengths and develop effective behaviour in their relationships is the best foundation for success. She has recently used Functional Fluency and TIFF individual profiling as a key learning tool in the Brookes Leadership Programme at Oxford Brookes University.




We invited Rona Rowe is an independent leadership coach and learning consultant who works with individuals and teams in the private and public sector to expand their capacity to think creatively, communicate with clarity and maximise the effectiveness of their working alliances. She is particularly interested in how leaders and managers recognise their behaviours as enabling or diminishing and how they can shift their attitudes to sustain more effective choices. Rona’s view is that a self-aware and self-regulating leadership enables more resilient teams and client-focussed organisations. Recently she has been working in collaboration with Restorative Justice practitioners on conflict resolution between teams. Earlier this year, she co-published a research report with Egremont International I Stone & River, entitled The Art of Not-Knowing, Leading in an Age of Uncertainty.

Rona is trained in organisational and counselling Transactional Analysis and uses the Functional Fluency model to support the development of her clients’ effective working alliances and reflect on her practice.

“Holding The Liminal Space” is a metaphorical container for the transformative interaction between a coach and client. In this context, liminal relates to a transitional process that can be facilitated by applying the skill of Open Awareness, thereby creating the optimal context for exploration, growth and transformation in coaching sessions. It is also a practical way in which coaches can help their clients to dis-identify from the stressful, fearful and disruptive content of the mind.
This webinar was created for Coaches who want to enhance their ability to establish deep report with their clients and hold the space for transformation to occur naturally in coaching.

In this webinar, Darren Robson interviewed Jevon Dangeli to find out:

  • The one fundamental factor that underlies all the issues that clients hope to resolve through coaching
  • How to elicit this underlying factor, and how to begin transforming its previous effect into a more resourceful response
  • he role of Open Awareness in cultivating mindful resourcefulness, receptivity, empathy, compassion, and a sense of interconnectedness.

Participants joined in via our live Q&A and said:

“Thanks Jevon for your deep insight. Looking forward to reading your pdf and developing skills in Open Awareness.”

“A very helpful session - thank you. It will help me better prepare as a coach.”

“A great webinar - would like to see more offerings from Jevon. First class, very enriching session. Thank you very much!”

“I completely agree with what is being said and in my experience being the space between myself and my client means that transformation is not coming 'from me' (I am not doing it 'to them') but that the answers come from the co-created space between us. Almost like this is the service of Life.”


SPEAKER BIO - Jevon Dangeli

Jevon has written eight training manuals and published many articles relating to transpersonal coaching. He has recorded over 30 audio programmes and a comprehensive video series where he teaches integrative approaches for transpersonal development.


He’s been active as a professional coach and trainer since 2004. Open Awareness is a fundamental aspect of his live Transpersonal Coaching courses, and the online Postgraduate Certificate Course in Transpersonal Coaching Psychology that he presents each year through Alef Trust, accredited by Liverpool John Moores University.

Open Awareness was the topic of his MSc research, which he presented at the International Transpersonal Conference and at the Transpersonal Research Colloquium in Prague, 2017, as well as at the European Transpersonal Conference in St. Petersburg, 2018.

By combining his 40 years of judo experience with his 20 years of psychology exploration and his passion to help children grow into happy, healthy and authentic adults, Jevon created the “jumi” (judo mind) concept and practice. The core objective of jumi is to develop Open Awareness and the ability to maintain it in all types of situations. He provides jumi training at various locations around the world. Jevon lives in the alpine region of northern Italy with his wife and their 2 children.

Coaches need clients. Global statistics on coaching businesses say that 82% of these businesses fail in the first 2 years. The reason for this is that often, coaches have excellent coaching skills, but not-quite-so-excellent business development skills.

A successful coach needs both skill sets to be excellent. 

Our speaker for this webinar, Sarah Short, shared her expertise on how to:

  • Work out who is most likely to buy from you - your ideal client
  • Identify what your ideal client needs to hear in order to be able to understand WHY they need to work with you
  •  Work out where they are and how to reach them.

SPEAKER BIO - Sarah Short

Sarah Short and two colleagues founded The Coaching Revolution to help coaches beat the odds (4:5 failure rate) and build financially successful coaching businesses.

 

The Coaching Revolution is antidote to the snake-oil peddlars in the coaching arena who promise the earth, at significant cost to the coach, and have ‘systems’ that just don’t work.

 Coaching Revolution mentees are supported 1:1, by experienced coach/mentors who have already become the 1:5 who does succeed.

 

With a background in both education and business development, Sarah has used these skills to create a growing movement that is truly revolutionising the coaching world.
