Session 1 

Keep Moving Forward: Character Strengths for Difficult Times

Each of us has a unique combination of strengths. Some of our most special attributes may remain hidden to us – because they seem so natural, we assume they are commonplace. Yet how we show up is unique to us, and even though we have strengths in common with others around us, the way we express them is personal.

Join this session to discover your strengths, explore their light – and dark – sides, and to choose how and when to combine strengths to ramp up – or dial back - their impact. Participants will have access to the FREE VIA Character Strengths Assessment as part of the preparation for the session. The assessment aids learning by personalizing the information.

 

Case studies, small and large group work and learning by doing are core components of our sessions. The psychological safety of all participants is very important to us, and we endeavor to ensure that everyone can take part in the way they feel most comfortable.

 

Listening objectives: Novelty; Resonance; Community; Provocation

·      Hear something new – novelty.

·      Link something you hear to who you already are – resonance.

·      Learn from the stories of others – community.

·      Listen to question – provocation.

 

Learning objectives: Identify, Hone, Build, Implement

·      Define strengths.

·      Hone your strengths.

·      Build strengths constellations.

·      Implement a strengths strategy.

·      Bring strengths to others.

Session 2

 

Coaching Skills for Other Professions

One of the mainstays of coaching is that the client knows their world, context, and constraints better than anyone else. Rather than advise clients as a consultant or mentor would, coaches “coax” answers from the client. These skills can be used to great effect by other professionals to get the best for and from employees and colleagues. Sometimes the skill is 100% listening. Other times it is questioning. Still other times it is co-creating a plan.

Join a session to learn how coaching can help you in whatever role you play at work – and in your community. Learn fundamental coaching concepts that you can use as you want to.

Case studies, small and large group work and learning by doing are core components of our sessions. The psychological safety of all participants is very important to us, and we endeavor to ensure that everyone can take part in the way feels most comfortable. Please let us know if there is anything you want us to account for.

With over 25 years of project management across Financial Services, State Government, and non-profits, Ruth's trajectory took a significant turn in 2016 when she experienced a profound burnout. This pivotal moment became the catalyst for her exploration into the transformative world of coaching. As the founder of Pearce Insights, Ruth has established herself as an award-winning coach, specializing in coaching groups on the profound themes of hope, strengths, bravery, and curiosity. Ruth's influence extends to the virtual realm through her LinkedIn Learning courses, collectively reaching over 125,000 participants. These courses, each rated above 4.7, cover topics ranging from burnout prevention to mindfulness, bravery, and coaching skills for project managers. A prolific author, Ruth's book "Be a Project Motivator," published by Berrett-Koehler, merges positive psychology with project management, offering a guide on how to engage and motivate teams effectively. Her latest endeavor, "Be Hopeful; Be Strong; Be Brave; Be Curious," slated for release in February 2024 by Wiley Books, is poised to inspire readers globally with insights into the transformative power of coaching. As a recipient of the WomELLE Female Voice Award and a firm believer in women supporting women, Ruth is dedicated to creating a circle that advances and encourages women in business and leadership.
