ICF Minnesota October 2017 Webinar Registration 

October 12, 2017 

12-1 p.m.

Arbinger's "The Outward Mindset: Seeing Beyond Ourselves" with Robyn Leland, CPCC, ACC

Our mindset impacts relationships, outcomes, and bottom-line results. Based on Arbinger Institute's bestselling book, "Leadership and Self Deception" and their 2016-released book, "The Outward Mindset," Robyn will discuss the difference between an inward and an outward mindset and provide an introduction on how you might approach a challenge (including coaching) if your mindset is outward as opposed to inward. You will begin to learn how to apply the principles and concepts that enable your own shift from an inward to an outward mindset leading, ultimately, to a culture that engages people, and accelerates collaboration, and leads to breakthrough results.

Robyn has a Bachelors degree in Chemical Engineering and a Masters degree in Manufacturing Engineering. She worked as an Engineer and Manager for twelve years before deciding to try something else. Robyn went through training and certification with the Coaches Training Institute and is ICF certified. In addition, she is part of the Arbinger Coaches network and is an Arbinger-trained coach. The Arbinger Institute wrote Leadership and Self Deception, Anatomy of Peace, and in 2016 The Outward Mindset. Their work inspired Robyn to pursue a career in coaching. Last year she became a Certified Facilitator to teach the Arbinger training Program, the two-day training course on The Outward Mindset.

Effective Kick Off Conversations – Powerful questioning with our leader clients, their bosses, and HR sponsors with Stacey Larsen, Ed.D

Event held at St. Thomas University, Opus Hall, Room 202, 1000 LaSalle Ave, Minneapolis MN 55403 

A powerful and often underutilized resource, coaching engagement kick-off meetings are a key factor in whether clients and organizations realize their coaching investment or not.  Participants will gain a pragmatic framework and powerful questions to navigate conversations between and among the leader receiving the coaching, their boss and the organizational sponsor.  Join in the dialogue as we discuss opportunities to apply this framework in our own practice and more effectively leverage the engagement of bosses and organizational sponsors for our clients’ success!

Stacey’s career began in K-12 education in Wisconsin, first as a middle school teacher, and then as a Director of Curriculum and Assessment. With over 18 years of experience in leadership and change management, Stacey now provides executive coaching, leadership development programs, and consulting services for leaders who want to take a coaching approach to management themselves and/or build that capacity in their organizations. She works primarily with mid-size firms in a variety of fields, including manufacturing, IT, healthcare, government, non-profit, and education. Stacey led the team that envisioned and designed the UST Executive Coaching Certificate program. She teaches in the program and makes the behind the scenes magic happen to support students and faculty throughout the year. In addition to acting as lead faculty and program administrator for coaching certification, she provides instruction and coaching for courses and custom corporate programs through UST’s Executive Education department.

Stacey enjoys theatre, travel, bonfires, and hanging out with her husband, 6-year-old son, and schnoodle dog.
