President’s Message: Call to Engagement

Support and ConnectionCoaches have an amazing gift to create positive change in the world, and to build capacity in individuals, organizations, and communities. When we work together to contribute, serve, and reach out into our community, we magnify our message and our work.

As we begin a new year, we invite all of our members to get involved. If you are someone who holds and lives the values of commitment, contribution, and service; and are attracted to working collaboratively in co-creating something that will be rewarding to you, to others, and to our community – we want you!

There are a variety of ways in which to engage with your VI Coaches community in the upcoming months:

  • We are seeking to fill a board member vacancy and several committee volunteer roles
  • On February 12th, there will be an opportunity to join us in giving back to the community through random acts of kindness & service
  • There are a number of opportunities to volunteer with the ICW Committee as well as get involved during International Coaching Week the week of May 20th. Our theme this year is Bridging Communities.
  • We are thrilled to be able to support a non-profit organization, Bridges for Women, in bringing volunteer coaches and coaching to complement their new Self-Employment Program (SEP). We will soon be putting out a call for volunteer coaches.

As you volunteer, there are rich rewards in contribution and service as well as the opportunity to model a coach way of being. You will grow as a coach and build an incredible network and community of practice.

May 2013 be one of great possibility!

President, VI Coaches
