Topic: Meeting People Where They Are for Greater Well-being
Presenter: Willa Gaitanis
Willa Gaitanis is an Executive and Somatic Coach and Leadership Development Trainer with more than two decades working with teams, organizations, and individuals. She is best known for having maximized NASA’s Internal Coaching Program by providing coaching to middle/senior level managers and NASA’s organizations and Project teams. Willa’s newest endeavor after retiring from NASA in 2013 is First Frontier Consulting, LLC. The company specializes in leadership transition and change with a focus on the power of leadership to attract and retain the new generations, ensure creative/productive work environments, and boost customer satisfaction.
How do we know what our values truly are and why do they matter? For coaches and consultants these questions are often at the heart of our conversations with clients. This interactive session is an introduction to Richard Barrett’s “values assessment” tool and the connection between values, needs, behaviors (including emotions), culture, and challenges in everyday life. Each participant will complete the free online tool prior to our session, receive their own “values assessment”, and take a reflective dive into their own life experiences through the lens of values. Join your fellow colleagues for this Coaching Community of Practice program and acquire a deeper framework to meet and support your clients’ development and wellbeing.

New Policy for people who are “no-shows”
Since we have terrific programs scheduled for this year, we want to provide an opportunity for as many attendees as possible. To enable us to fill openings please email me at least before 10 a.m. the day of the meeting, Tuesday, if you will not be able to attend so I can contact those who email that day to be on the waiting list. From now on those who are 'no-shows' will be placed on the waiting list for future meetings until we have openings. If you contact me after 10 a.m. I may still be able to fill your opening although it doesn't provide much notice for those on the waiting list.
Cancellation policy: If session is cancelled Peggy Linden will send out an email announcement. If schools or libraries are closed this meeting will be cancelled also.
