Coaching SIG: Successfully Connecting with Others - for Relationships and Business!

  • 04 Mar 2014
  • 6:40 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Location: Bethesda Regional Library, 7400 Arlington Rd. Bethesda, MD 20814.

The Coaching CoP is Sponsored by the American Society for Training & Development (ASTD) & Chesapeake Bay Organization Development Network (CBODN) 

Topic: Mindful Movement for Presence and Grounding

As coaches we know that the connection between body and mind unifies us. Many of us promote the use of mindfulness and grounding in our coaching and also use this approach in maintaining our own self-care. Bring your curiosity and join us on March 4th for an evening of “moving” and experiencing the awareness and focus of our bodies. Through a mixture of varied physical movement we’ll learn new ways to improve focus, relieve stress, and engage with ourselves and others. After an easy warm-up we will follow the lead of our instructor, Lee Ordeman, who provided a fascinating program on Shintaido last year that yielded great reviews. 

Please dress in comfortable, loose-fitting clothes and be ready to enjoy movement. Socks are preferable but not a requirement.

Presenter: Lee Ordeman

Lee Ordeman is an actor, teacher, and former dancer based in Washington, D.C. who teaches meditation and Shintaido, a practical martial art with the goal of self-discovery and transformation.

We also have trainers, and consultants, or others in different fields who are curious about coaching or becoming a coach, along with some who teach in coaching programs. We have members coming from a range of fields including IT, law, economics, health care, advertising, communications, banking, and international organizations. We enjoy the mix of perspectives, ages, and world experience.
