Stop Rescuing Start Coaching

Stop Rescuing ... Start Coaching! with David Emerald Womeldorff and Donna Zajonc MCC

Event Information

Based upon David Emerald’s book, The Power of TED* (*The Empowerment Dynamic)®

As coaches, our passion to help and be change-agents may sometimes be confused with rescuing and saving others.

As a rescuer, we unknowingly disempower our clients and interfere with their development.

Attending coaches will experience immediate personal insights into rescuing behaviour, and new awareness on how to shift into coaching ways of being, listening and taking action.

Based upon David Emerald’s book, The Power of TED* (*The Empowerment Dynamic)®, coaches will become more aware of their rescuing behaviour when they rescue clients, and insights into how to stop rescuing and start coaching. Coaches will also receive strategies on how to challenge clients who are rescuer to others.

Additional takeaways participants will experience:

  • What situations "trigger" a coach and throw them into the reactive roles of victim, persecutor or rescuer;
  • Increased awareness of their unmet need that may be behind their tendency to rescue;
  • How to focus more on what they want (and what their clients want) rather than on what they don’t want and;
  • Profound coaching tools and exercises to support a shift from drama to empowerment.
