Description of Course

Voice as Awareness and Transformation

As coaches, by developing our ability to follow our client’s Voice, we develop empathy skills and learn to listen in ways that help them clarify what matters most. In this 1.5-hour session, we will explore a process that opens us to play the full range of our Voice. With increased self-awareness, we can more effectively support our clients to discover the full range of their needs, concerns, hopes and desires so that they can design and create meaningful change. We’ll also explore listening skills that promote a felt sense of authenticity and trust in the coaching relationship. In this session, you will

  • Learn a narrative model to deepen awareness of your client’s context which may include their identity, environment, experiences, values and beliefs
  • Improve your ability to use self-awareness and intuition to benefit your client
  • Adjust your coaching approach in response to client needs
  • Experience a process that promotes safety, openness and relationship built on mutual respect and trust.

About Doug:

For over 20 years leadership and organization development challenges have fascinated me. As the owner of Doug Nathan Coaching & Consulting, I bring a systems approach to create healthy work environments in corporate, non-profit and government agencies. Voice is a powerful tool that develops self-awareness, empathy and presence. I began using this process 25 years ago teaching creative writing to adults interested in connecting more deeply with what they had to say through fiction and non-fiction. I realized that the tools I used in my writing workshops helped people bring their whole selves to the work they do. Since then, I have used this Voice process to teach leadership development to MBA students and leaders within business and government. I also use Voice processes to support mediators and coaches to develop their empathy and presence skills. In my free time, I scuba dive, kayak and enjoy the wonderful chaos of life with my family on an island in the Seattle, WA area.
