The BIG Opportunity…

These are exciting times! Every day people are shifting out of the Industrial Age of Work mindset and into the Connected Age of Play. People are playing life as a performance art, collaborative game or worthy quest. Think of performance art for example: performing artists live to share their skills and perspectives to co-create meaningful experiences. Look at Facebook, Instagram and YouTube: they are GLOBAL Performance Art platforms with BILLIONS of people participating daily.

The trouble/opportunity is that most of us learned how to coach based on an Industrial Age framework. To thrive as coaches in the Connected Age, we will need to re-imagine what it means to be a coach.

In this coaching demonstration, Dave will share with you what he has learned so far about transformational play and how to coach a player rather than a worker.

During this session, Dave will guide us through a Connected Age look at these Coaching Skills:

  • Creating Trust & Intimacy
  • Coaching Presence
  • Active Listening
  • Direct Communication
  • Creating Awareness
