Coaching for engagement and connection
A learning and development opportunity to expand your front-of-the-room coaching skills and your network of coaching colleagues, and to help your communities experience the impact of professional coaching.
WHY and HOW
We know that coaching is not about telling – it is about demonstrating impact. Through face-to-face workshops, webinars and practical experiences this program will expand the skills needed to coach at the front of the room and to open the coaching conversation with businesses or organizations. And, as part of the program you’ll create demonstration opportunities by connecting with community businesses and organizations so they can experience the impact of professional coaching. We’ll celebrate the learning and the impact with a week of coaching-at the-front-of-the-room during International Coaching Week – May 7th – 13th, 2018.
WHO IS THIS FOR
Developed, in collaboration with Lily Seto, PCC, the program is open to accredited ICF Vancouver Island chapter members who have at least an ACC designation. You’ll also need to be an effective communicator, flexible and have some experience in group and team coaching.
WHEN and WHAT
Running from September 2017 to May 2018, the program starts with a face-to-face workshop on September 23, 2017, followed by two 90-minute webinars in October and January.
From October through March you’ll engage with local organizations and businesses and do two, community practice sessions. The program ends during International Coaching Week, May 7 to 13 with you completing at least two coaching-at the-front-of-the-room demonstrations in local businesses or organizations.
