Curiosity, Compassion, & True Connection: Fostering Cultural Humility in the Coaching Space ($55, 1 CE)  

As societal systems continue to make efforts to bridge structural racism and other forms of inequity, it's vital for coaches to continue to grow in their own awareness of unconscious bias as well as gain tools to provide more equitable and culturally aware health coaching. The benefits of this course include: review of essential DEI definitions, practical application of key self-awareness and non-violent communication frameworks, as well as additional resources for self-learning. The goal of this module is to set a framework for health coaches to create an inclusive environment for coaching clients by utilizing a Cultural Humility framework. Unpack concepts like positionality, power, privilege, and intersectionality to better understand how they impact our approach as coaches and our ability to effectively support clients.
