Happy Summer, Fellow ICF Coaches!
I trust this message finds you enjoying a lovely New England summer, practicing what we all suggest to our clients – enjoying the moment.
Soon Labor Day will be here and another ICF New England year begins. A year for us to share stories and collaborate in ways that promote professional coaching. “So what does she mean, collaborate and share stories?”
The profession of coaching is maturing and ICF leads the charge in educating and advocating within our communities, ensuring that professional coaching is recognized as an invaluable aspect of growth and success for a community, a business, a human being. Another integral part of their message is that ICF Coaches are the industry standard. ICFNE has a 20 year association with professional coaching and continues to collaborate with our communities to convey the benefits of coaching through such endeavors as the Coaches Corner.
Together we can grow that collaboration which is illustrated in stories – – ours, our clients and our communities.
I will continue this conversation each week through August. For now I share with you the board’s objectives as part of a 3-year strategy to:
- Continually provide resources for members to enhance skills and proficiency in coaching; and,
- Promote the brand “ICF Coach” as the signature of professional coaching.
Please, we would appreciate your thoughts, comments and suggestions on this plan which you may send me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Until next week, enjoy!
Maggie French, PCC
Chapter President 2015-2016
