Wishing you a Holiday Season filled with Joy and Great Conversations!

Judith E Glaser

We had our Signature Speaking Event on December 1st with Judith E. Glaser, who is the world authority on Conversational Intelligence®. Judith, an innovative change agent, coach, and consultant elevated the discussion and enlightened the attendees in a way that was inspiring. There was an air of excitement, learning, connection, engagement, and co-creation in the room.

I am pleased to say we had an incredible turnout, and the feedback from attendees has been phenomenal.

We hope you connect with us in the many ways we are reaching out to the coaching community:

  1. We have a Coach Café scheduled for December 13th at Noon in Wilton, where you can informally connect with other coaches and share issues and get to know each other in a casual setting.
  2. On December 19th from 7-8:30pm we have a Coaching Circle scheduled virtually for those coaches who have over 300 hours coaching and business experience to discuss issues.
  3. On January 5th we have a new Coach Cafe at 11:30am in Avon where you can meet coaches closer to your area and discuss issues and get to know each other.
  4. On January 10th from Noon to 1:00pm, back by popular demand, Cindy Donaldson is presenting a Webinar on Leveraging Social Media to Build Your Practice: Part 2 LinkedIn.

We have great Programs lined up for you. Please check out our Website to register and to meet our Board, who is showcased in a video on the front page of our website. Click here.

Revision of Article 5 By-Laws

Members are Invited to Review

Dear Members,
We are inviting you to review a Proposed Revision to our ICF-CT Chapter By-Laws. The Board has proposed this revision to allow us to widen the scope of presenters we can have for you at our in-person Chapter Meetings and Signature Events. The Speaker Engagement Policy (Article 5.1) in the By-Laws currently reads that “All speaker engagements are non-paid” and further “There is no reimbursement for travel expenses”.

International Coaching Week 2017

ICF coaches are the best trained and meet the highest standards in coaching.  The 2017 International Coaching Week (ICW) was a great success. ICF chapters from around the world invited individuals and organizations to “Experience Coaching.” This week-long celebration of coaching, held late in May each year, provides a platform to enhance awareness of professional coaching and its many benefits.

ICF-CT offered a number of pro-bono coaching opportunities, allowing us to give back to the community as a coach, spread the benefits of coaching to others and receive benefits from these opportunities too.

Here’s what we did in 2017 and we expect 2018 International Coaching Week to be just as fabulous!

  • Drop-in coaching with veterans at Rocky Hill VA Home, Thursday, May 18
  • Oasis and Drop-in Coaching at Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services, IRIS, New Haven – Friday, May 19, 2 – 5 pm. Contact president@icf-ct.org for more information
  • Drop-in Coaching Corner at Berkin’s Blend, Glastonbury a variety of dates and times are available. Contact Stacey Zackin to get on the schedule, stacey@thecoach4you.com
  • Drop-in Coaching Corner at Tusk and Cup, Wilton, Thursday, May 18 noon – 3 pm, contact Althea Lockwood for dates and times, uniint451@gmail.com .

International Coaching week is a perfect time to make a special pro-bono presentation.  Experiment and share the benefits of coaching by providing the experience to others.

Let us know what you plan to do to acknowledge, promote and celebrate coaching during International Coaching Week.
