President's Message
Hi Coaching Colleagues, 

Tomorrow is May 4th. C’mon say it with me – “May the 4th be with you!”

The force is with us. That is, the power to empower others in the knowledge that they are naturally creative, resourceful, and whole and can affect their future in profound ways. It is alive in us and in all our coaching engagements. 

This month we bring that power to our state of Connecticut through International Coaching Week. ICW is the global celebration of coaching – what it can do for individuals, organizations, and the world!  

 “Reimagine the Future” is this year’s global theme.
