Engage with one another, develop knowledge and skills, share expertise, and contribute to our community.

Coaching:  Co-sponsored by CBODN and ATD

Description:
This group is for those in the CBODN and/or ATD community who are interested in enhancing their coaching skills and coaching business practices. The purpose of the Coaching CoP is twofold:
● To provide a community where those interested in the coaching field can informally come together to discuss and share experiences
● To provide a forum for learning new and/or different aspects of the evolving field of coaching

Our efforts are focused on serving the needs and interests of our coaching community. This is most often reflected in areas such as the identification & discussion of tactical and strategic coaching issues; learning & sharing of coaching models, techniques, tools and strategies; exploring ethical and boundary issues; enhancement of knowledge; and identification and sharing of resources.

New Policy for people who are “no-shows”
Since we have terrific programs scheduled for this year, we want to provide an opportunity for as many attendees as possible. To enable us to fill openings please email me at least before 10 a.m. the day of the meeting, Tuesday, if you will not be able to attend so I can contact those who email that day to be on the waiting list. From now on those who are ‘no-shows’ will be placed on the waiting list for future meetings until we have openings. If you contact me after 10 a.m. I may still be able to fill your opening although it doesn’t provide much notice for those on the waiting list.

    Program:
    Attend the first Coaching SIG program for 2015 and join our welcoming community of coaches and consultants in learning a dynamic method of reflective questioning. WIAL (World Institute for Action Learning) -based Action Learning is a simple, yet powerful method for rapidly developing effective solutions to urgent, complex business challenges while simultaneously increasing leadership capabilities of all team members. Through an iterative process of reflection and inquiry, action learning team participants uncover the underlying issues, develop action strategies that will work in their unique climate, and learn about themselves as individuals and team members. Join us for a highly interactive session that demonstrates how action learning is being used with peer coaching groups and how it is used to solve real-time challenges that impact our professional success.
