Vancouver Island Coaches Association

Supportive Community

Vancouver Island Coaches AssociationA supportive community can be critical to help you through the stress of tough times, whether you’ve had a bad day at work or a year filled with loss or illness. Since your family, friends, and colleagues are such an important part of your life, it’s never too soon to cultivate these important relationships.

People who surround themselves with support not only reach their goals quicker and with more gusto but they also experience more fulfillment while having fun getting there.

A perfect way to support each other in the coaching community is our September Coaches Café – Share Your Favourite Coaching Resources on Tuesday, September 9th. We hope you will be joining us. Even if you don’t have a resource to share come learn about what other coaches are using in their practices. Always lots of sharing, laughter and support!

Don’t be shy to bring your favourite resource or tool. The more we help and support each other the more we gain help and support ourselves. You never know if what you are using with your coaching clients could have a major impact on someone else or their client.

To start us off, one of our Chapter Members, Anneli Driessen shared the following website that she though may be of interest to our membership:  www.toolsshare.com. Thank you Anneli.

In the spirit of sharing – If you find this website useful, we would love to hear your comments below.

“Three keys to more abundant living: caring about others, daring for others, sharing with others.” William Arthur Ward

This year we have been focusing on the larger community of coaching. We have travelled to Saltspring Island to play, share and support our Gulf Island members and colleagues. In November we will be travelling up island to play, share and support our members who can’t always travel to Victoria to attend our events. These pockets of communities help to make ICF Vancouver Island Coaching Association what it is. A sharing, caring, supportive community of coaches. Thank you for being part of this journey and for supporting myself and our Leadership Team along the way.

On that note, I invite you to join me in welcoming our two newest members to our Leadership Team. Lily Seto is stepping in as Vice President and will be taking over my role as President next year. Maria Lironi has stepped in as our Director of Events so you will be hearing more from her very shortly. We are thrilled to be working with the curious, creative minds of Lily and Maria and are looking forward to what unfolds next.

Here’s to caring and sharing with a wonderful community of coaches!
