International Mentoring Academy

the deeper

A 6-week coaching programme to find the hidden dimensions to connect more powerfully with your people online and onlife.

Senior managers, mid-level managers, coaches, mentors and team leaders are trying to be effective and connect authentically with their people online, but working effectively with teams in this new medium requires a lot more than getting to grips with Zoom – especially if your goal is to develop, coach and inspire people whilst you’re delivering the message.
Being in front of 100 people on a webinar is very different from being on a stage, where the physical environment is designed to create that connection - you can scan the room and see everyone and react accordingly in the moment. However, it’s exponentially more difficult to gauge the general mood and see how people are feeling when people are muted, they have elected to turn off their video, and your gallery can only display a small proportion of faces.

Questions emerge:

  • How can I invest in my own development to adjust to the ‘new normal’?

  • What new mindset and behaviours can I practise to convey a deeper level of connection?

  • How can I know what people are thinking and feeling to serve them better when there are invisible?

  • How can I bring more of my whole self to these interactions and engage more effectively?

  • How can I articulate my own beliefs and values better through this medium?

  • What changes can I make to inspire and motivate people?

  • What messages do people need from me to drive them to action?

  • How can I treat this new medium in a creative way, rather than a poor substitute for ‘the real thing’?

Presenting The Deeper You

Coaching specialists MentorLab and Skills to Influence are partnering to deliver a 6-week intense coaching programme – specifically designed for professionals, leaders and managers seeking ways to inspire and communicate more effectively.

This coaching programme is very different from any other advanced public speaking course with a primary focus on practical tips and tricks to look good on stage or camera. We'll share all of these with you as part of the package because they have their place, but in this journey, you will have the opportunity to work with your underlying mindset and behaviours. Trough a blend of content, exercises and one-to-one coaching, you'll uncover the key to moving beyond fear and present at a deeper level that will inspire people and move them to action.

The Exploration Areas

Clarity: The power of Intent

Your words are a reflection of the power of your intent. The internal becomes external. Infusing your speech with honesty, and overcoming ‘the 5 hinderances to clarity’ will transform your power to make people listen and follow you.

Conviction: Helping others shine

When you speak from the heart, something transformative happens to your natural delivery, people sense your energy and awake their inner motivation to act.

Identity: Anchoring on uniqueness

Bring more of yourself to every interaction, by recognising who you are deep down and speaking from that unique, authentic self.

Confidence: Your source of strength

Discover and unlock your unique source of strength and inner confidence, learning how to summon and activate it at will.

Inspiration: The discipline of attention

Being inspired and affecting others with your vision is a habit you can install through the disciplined practice of choosing where you put your attention.

Presence and Gravitas: Activate your magnetism

To connect with others at a deeper level, you need to listen with your whole being and develop a command of the here and now. Only then will you become a magnet, drawing others towards you.
