    Values are key to all our successful connections. On December 18th the Coaching Community of Practice will focus on understanding and using values, our own and those of our clients. Our presenter, Amy Schoen, will explore why knowing one’s values is key to all successful relationships. We will learn how to focus on what truly matters for us and for our clients and how to utilize these core values as a rudder to help with life’s decisions. This is an experiential session with opportunities to practice the concepts with another colleague/participant. We will learn why knowing one's relationship values versus personal values is instrumental in developing successful relationships
