Dr. Pat Williams will speak briefly on living purposefully and the importance of courageous, emotionally transparent conversations.
Many of us lock things that never get resolved in our mental dungeons, yet often we could move forward with conversations that pre-empt potentially painful interactions. The means and methods for personal self-disclosure will be shared and experienced in an interactive manner by Dr. Pat.
Dr. Pat will draw on his new book to address how “the magic of revealing ourselves to a trusted other allows us to reclaim energy that has been keeping the cellar door locked.” In addition, he will explain why we need to learn to discover and share our unique purpose, or ‘raison d’être” for our lives on this planet. By referencing conversations with the dying and the regrets they expressed in thinking back over their lives, Dr. Pat will share personal stories that impacted him and others.
Dr. Pat will be available for book signing for those interested in a copy of his book, Getting Naked: Ways to Uncover your Authentic Self at Work, Home, in Relationships, and Life (On Being Emotionally Transparent at the Right Time, the Right Place, and with the Right Person)
Three things you will learn from Dr. Williams’s presentation:
1) How to incorporate and evoke powerful self-disclosure into your coaching (Competency Direct
2) How to expand a coaching conversation into a deeper place encouraging transformation, not
just goal attainment.
3) Powerful methods for incorporating metaphor and imagery into your coaching.
