Advancing the Gender Lens
Advancing the Gender Lens is a self-paced, Online Video Course offered to Integral Master Coaches™. It leads you through the notable advancements lead architect Laura Divine has made to the Gender Lens with the launch of ICCP 2.0. This course introduces the fundamentals of four distinct patterns of gender expression and the cyclical progression through them, which we all travel through. It also provides you with a way to discern where the unique focus of development needs to be from a Gender Lens perspective for a specific client in a specific topic. Also included in this course are recommended exercises and “Try Its” to support integration and embodiment of these fundamentals.
The Video Course is designed to be relevant for IMC’s™ in a number of ways. For use with coaching clients, with other forms of individual and group dynamics and development, as well as for use in your personal lives. The Video Course will provide IMC’s™ with access to refinements to the contribution of the Gender Lens that will enable greater intimacy and accuracy with clients, and helpful guidelines for aligning overall program design, use of language and focus of new muscle development. All the course material can also be applied to your own life and developmental work and will enhance your appreciation and discernment for where you are now, which pattern of gender expression would best serve your current longings, and the path to reaching that particular Gender Pattern.
Participants in Advancing the Gender Lens Online Video Course will have access to a series of four 20-30min videos. These videos capture a plenary session on the Gender Lens advancements that was delivered by Gender Lens architect and ICC Co-Founder Laura Divine at the ICC June 2018 Conference and Retreat. There is a corresponding slide deck presentation that is a companion to the four videos. These slides provide key reference material that you will be able to draw upon over and over again as you apply what you learn from this course. Lastly, there is a Course Guide with guidelines on how to work with the videos and slides, helpful “Try Its” for further understanding and embodiment of the Gender Lens advancements, and strategies for engaging with the material on your own or with fellow IMCs™.
Students taking this Video Course can expect to gain a solid understanding of what ICC has chosen to focus on in advancing the Gender Lens, the nature of the patterns of gender expression in their healthy and unhealthy manifestations, the cyclical flow through the gender patterns, how to discern a person’s current gender pattern and the gender pattern most appropriate for their topic or situation, and how to scale coaching programs and developmental work to the current Gender Pattern.
As the title suggests, this course will advance, expand and enrich the ways in which the Gender Lens contributes to the set of lenses we use at ICC to form an AQAL Constellation™ in ways that open up your mind, your heart, your body and your skillful means personally and professionally.

The scope and ways in which we dive into these key areas will be shaped by participants’ questions. Here are some of the key topics:
Marketing and Branding: Finding your niche, developing your voice and how to speak about Integral Coaching® and what you offer those you want to work with, networking and visibility strategies for both local and online reach, website building, content marketing, brand development and where the heck to start when all of this is so overwhelming and there are so many ways to pursue this: What’s right for your unique AQAL Constellation™, Ways of Being and the precious work you want to do in the world?
Pitching and Sales: Selling and ‘closing’ with authenticity and confidence, key components of enrollment and registration conversations, what’s needed when ‘pitching’ to organizations as an external coach, translating and working within government or corporate business settings (this is for all of you who’ve wondered, “Will that VP really be cool with this ‘metaphor thing’?”).
Offerings and Applications: Building, packaging and pricing your offerings, clarifying your areas of impact and target applications and audiences: Who you work with and why, where to find them and how to engage them?
Entrepreneurial Best Practices: Dealing with uncertainty, developing resilience, building your systems and support network, risk taking, your ‘business building way of being’ and growing edges, leveraging your strengths and capacities, aligning your sense of calling and deepest longings with the day to day work you’re offering and carrying out in the world.
