President's Message from Judy Garfinkel

Judy Garfinkel | Published on 11/2/2021

Hi Fellow Coaches,

A group of swans is a ‘bevy,’ a group of owls a ‘parliament,’ mules are a ‘pack,’ and jellyfish gather in a ‘smack’. Toads form a ‘knot,’ and many leopards traveling together are a ‘leap’ (my personal favorite).  

But what would you call a group of coaches? 

I can’t wait to hear your answers!

In the meantime, we are heading into November, a month with many opportunities for families and communities to gather in celebration, awareness and/or remembrance. At ICF-CT, we hope that your gatherings for Diwali, Hanukkah, Thanksgiving, Veterans Day and more are safe and satisfying. 

Join us November 19th for our Chapter Meeting when our very own Larry Ackerman will talk about coaching through the lens of identity, “How can you succeed if you don’t know who you are?” (Note the earlier meeting date due to the Thanksgiving holiday.)

There’s nothing like coming together for ICF-CT planned events such as our Coach Cafes and the return of the Coaching Circle, Coaching Women Leaders.  We know that meeting up with other coaches 1:1 or in small group ‘coffee’ chats - virtually or in-person - is the glue that makes our unique ICF-CT community even stronger. Go ahead and use the Member Directory to reach out to other coaches before and after any event. 

I truly enjoy speaking with you, our members, so don’t be shy!  Contact me to chat.

Believing in you,
