Advice to a new coach:
Consider how your relationship with your client is influenced by the systems to which you both belong and how you might bring the system into the room. From a systemic point of view, ask who and what else is influencing the client? What patterns are you noticing? What role are you playing in this system and what shifts you need to make to best serve your client?
Why it’s important to you to be an ICF Vancouver member:
Our chapter creates a great learning community and more than ever, we need a local peer group to help us connect to the wider system and to help the coach community stay professionally fit.
Anything else you want us to know about you:
I have over 30 years of non-profit leadership experience, and this work has influenced my approach to coaching. I believe that coaches need to put on Systemic and JEDI (justice, equity, diversity & inclusion) lenses, and that this work needs to start on ourselves.
