5 Coachfederation.org/ICFGlobal20125Copyright HPCG®, Sage Strategies 2012 Abstract Coaching the distance – bridging cultural gaps seamlessly with technology Who would you coach if technology was easy for you to use? Does using technology create anxiety for you? Are you aware of the opportunities in the virtual world? Are you familiar with cultural aspects of coaching globally? No longer is a lack of knowledge of communication technology an excuse in today's global coaching and business world. Meeting your clients where they are might mean that you have to create a virtual space to hold the coaching conversation. Modern communication technology is becoming more relevant and more interesting to clients and is easier to use than ever. You and your client are both on the same page when you use technology for coaching in the virtual world. Attend this session to get tips and tricks to bridge both culture and technology. Join this interactive session to experience "coaching the distance", including real-time demonstrations using the latest technology. The demonstration will show you how to leverage technology for better understanding in your coaching sessions. Learn how to create incredible brainstorming with a virtual white-board. Ensure accountability with the sharing of homework documents. See the hottest virtual tools that are just being released and how to access and leverage tools and websites for your coaching business. In addition you can also connect with other coaches to be able to test, troubleshoot and tackle new technology in your own office. After the session at the ICF Conference join the online discussion from your office to test and update your virtual technology offerings. This session promises to make your coaching practice beyond borders easier through building cultural awareness and comfort with technology. For Your Reference
