To coach is to connect, so how do we establish trust with coaches and clients when feeling nervous about our own understanding of transgender, non-binary, and gender non-confirming language and experiences? What does it mean to connect with a human being beyond gender expectations and roles society imprints on us? How can we educate fellow coaches on the topic beyond the buzzwords? This talk is designed to have audiences notice their own assumptions about sex and gender and leave with new insights on awareness, communicating, and listening. Jay’s openness and humor about their own experience as a trans non-binary person creates a safe space for people to discuss and ask questions.
