Has a line of poetry ever inspired you? Provided solace? Challenged your thinking? This webinar series is designed to offer you an experience of working with a wide variety of poems (and poets) that you can potentially offer to your coaching clients as a way to invoke, evoke and provoke.


Description: Beginning in February 2021, and for 10 consecutive months, we will take a theme and explore poems that address that theme and how it factors into coaching. The dates, times and themes for each webinar are listed below. In the last session, November 2021, you will have the opportunity to offer one of your favorite poems to the community.


In each 60-minute webinar we will offer two to three poems, provide some background on the poet and look at coaching applications for the poem. We will send you the poem titles in advance of each webinar, with a link to each of the poems when possible. The webinars are not designed to analyze the poems; they are designed to feel into the poem and notice how it speaks to you and to decide how you might appropriately use the poems with your coaching clients.


Fee: This series is limited to 15 coaches to enable maximum participation. The cost for the entire series is $995. ICF CEUs have been applied for.

Dates and Times: Webinars will be held from 11am - Noon ET on the second Monday of the month, except for October, which will be on a Tuesday, on the following dates, using the Zoom platform. Each session will be recorded.
