    Program:
    As coaches and OD consultants we often focus on how to change behaviors—either stopping unhelpful behaviors or fostering virtuous behaviors. This interactive workshop will focus on the power of shifting mindsets as a means of unleashing vital behaviors that lead to success.
    Participants will come away with a deeper understanding of the power of mindsets in making change happen as well as exposure to tools to shift mindsets.

    Topic: Meeting People Where They Are for Greater Well-being
          
     
    Presenter:  Willa Gaitanis

    Willa Gaitanis is an Executive and Somatic Coach and Leadership Development Trainer with more than two decades working with teams, organizations, and individuals.

    Program:
    How do we know what our values truly are and why do they matter? For coaches and consultants these questions are often at the heart of our conversations with clients. This interactive session is an introduction to Richard Barrett’s “values assessment” tools and the connection between values, needs, behaviors (including emotions), culture, and challenges in everyday life. Each participant will get their own “values assessment”, take a reflective dive into their own life experiences through the lens of values, and acquire a deeper framework to meet and support their clients’ development and wellbeing.

    Topic: Improv Games and Coaching Applications
       
     
    Presenter:  John Bennett

    John B. Bennett, Ph.D., ACC, is the coordinator of the Executive Development Exchange Network (EDEN), organizing and hosting monthly meetings for a network of over 500 federal and non-federal workers who work in or with leadership development programs.

    Program:
    Improv refers to inventing, composing, or performing with little or no preparation. It’s about risk taking and being open to new ideas and ways of doing things. Do you or your clients ever face unpredictable and stressful situations where things have not gone as planned or where thinking on your feet is needed? The practice of improv helps coaches and their clients prepare for these situations. This program will look at basic principles of improv and engage in a series of exercises where participants practice listening, being in the moment, “underthinking” and having fun!
