President's Report

Happy National Telephone Day! Celebrate by calling someone to say hello!  You never know, they just may need to her your voice. 

Members - you received an email this week asking for video submissions to celebrate International Coaching Week, the Chicago chapter of the International Coaching Federation is creating a series of short videos to bring our passion and expertise to life, for fellow coaches as well as people who don’t have a great understanding of coaching. The submitted  videos will appear on our site and on our social media channels. All members who submit a video will be entered into a raffle to win two free chapter programs of their choice this year. Videos are due by April 30th and can be emailed to [email protected]

International Coaching Week is coming up here at the beginning of May and we had been planning a larger in person event; however because of the pandemic, as you know, we are not able to do that at this time.  So, we have decided to partner with Invite Change and co-host a special program, on May 10, 2020 at 12 pm presented by Karen Steckler 

With Covid-19 - What’s possible NOW for your Coaching Business? 

This session is designed to help you tap into your creativity for business continuity and for envisioning new opportunities. The questions we will explore are: 1) What do we need to pay attention that will inform us about the change in our business strategy? 2) What ways can we create business continuity without hard selling our clients? 3) What in the coaching paradigm will change and how can we get lead it and/or move with it? As an outcome of the session you will leave with 2-3 ideas for change and a fun stretch goal.


Without further ado, it's the April 25 ICF Chicago newsletter.  ENJOY! Remember, if you would like to revisit this newsletter you can always find the most current newsletter on our website newsletter page.
