Model of Excellence

 

As Canada’s third largest ICF Chapter, ICF Vancouver Charter Chapter’s vision is “to have the largest pool of highly trained, engaged, successful, and credentialed professional coaches that are connected to the community in Canada; and to be the “model of excellence” for ICF Chapters globally.”

Whew!  It’s a big vision, and one that we are continually living ‘into and up to’ as we find meaningful ways to add value to you as a member, and to the profession of coaching.

A good example of living into and up to our vision is the new CoachingWise designation that will be launched at our Tuesday, May 19th Chapter meeting during a special celebration event. CLICK here to register.

On that evening, you will meet representatives from CoachingWise organizations, and be there to witness them receive the inaugural designation in North America. You will also meet a special guest, Thomas Crane, author of The Heart of Coaching.  He is a strong advocate of the value of coaching cultures, and is helping us to celebrate Coaching Week with a full-day Heart of Coaching workshop on Wednesday, May 20th.

Not only will you spend a memorable day learning what contributes to high performance coaching cultures, you will also receive a complimentary copy of the latest edition of Heart of Coaching (retail value $25). CLICK here to register before the early bird date, you can also save $25 on the cost of the workshop!

Over the next few weeks we’ll be sharing more about what distinguishes a CoachingWise organization, how we at ICF Vancouver Charter Chapter believe this new designation will help to grow the movement among organizations who are realizing the business and people advantages of developing a coaching culture; and why this is CoachingWise initiative is something we can all take pride in as coaches and ICF members.

In the meantime, I look forward to seeing you at CoachingWise and at the Heart of Coaching.

“In a coaching culture, all members of the culture fearlessly engage in candid, respectful coaching conversations,
unrestricted by reporting relationships, about how they can improve their working relationships
and individual and collective work performance.   All have learned to value and effectively use feedback as a powerful learning tool
to produce personal and professional development, high-trust working relationships, continually- improving job performance,
and ever-increasing customer satisfaction.” 
Thomas Crane
