February 2014 ICF Colorado Newsletter

  1. 1. ICF Colorado Newsletter February 2014 IN THIS ISSUE: Message from Stephanie Wachman President, ICF Colorado 2014 is off to a great start! I realized that I never formally introduced myself since coming in as chapter president. I am originally from Montreal, Quebec and moved to Colorado over 15 years ago. I received my BA from McGill University and worked for over 18 years in business development, sales, sales training and marketing. My passion has always been in helping business leaders and high potential professionals achieve more. I began coaching 4 years ago with a focus on Executive Coaching and Productivity Training and received certification from CTA. I am also currently enrolled in Judy Sabah’s ICF Certification Class. I have been married to my wonderful husband David for 15 years, and we have two boys, ages 9 & 13 (a teenager YIKES!). We love to ski, hike and watch football. My vision for ICF Colorado is to bring as much opportunity, education, networking, business guidance, community outreach and great positive, fun energy to our chapter as we can handle. The motto for the year is let's "try it;" if we succeed, GREAT! If we fail, GREAT! Let's just take chances and stretch ourselves to the benefit of our chapter. Our board is incredible and working hard to bring this vision to light. We are currently planning a one-day conference, international coaching week and the development of a new website. ICF Colorado offers some great resources, including a Facebook Page and LinkedIn Group. Lastly, I want remind everyone that ICF Global has amazing President's Message February 2014 Monthly Meeting Special Interest Groups (SIGs) IN THE SPOTLIGHT: Find out more about our members ARTICLES: Learn about specific topics related to coaching Membership General Meeting Information ICF Colorado Meetup Groups Our ICF Colorado Meetup Groups are an opportunity for our community to continue conversations and keep communications going in-between our monthly meetings.

  3. 3. allows you to truly empathize and support others in their transformations. and Career with LinkedIn Discussions In this program, we will explore how to identify and address your self-care needs using the 4 Gateways coaching model. 4 Gateways is a powerful, experiential process for addressing an enormous range of issues. Through the 4 wisdom gateways, you and your clients step out of conditioned ways of seeing and view any issue with fresh perspectives, aligned with purpose, engaged with passion, and directed by right use of power. Through the process both we and our clients can transform our inner lives, our relationships, and our world. ICF Colorado extends outside just the monthly meetings. You might not be connected with the very valuable ICF Colorado LinkedIn group. Attendees will learn to take clients through specific, proven processes that shift viewpoint and experience, and open the door to resolving almost any personal or professional issue. For attendees, what they learn during this talk will give them additional coaching tools that can make the work they do with their clients more powerful and effective. The 4 Gateways inquiry process makes life easier for coaches, as they quickly transition clients from struggle to solution-based processing..

We have been attracting a lot of new and wonderful members lately, so I have been asked many questions about why they should join. They ask me why I joined and what is my benefit. I would like to share: First is community; this organization provides a wonderful group of people that I call friends and colleagues. The second is connection; we spend so much time solo as coaches and consultants that connecting is crucial to inspire us and bring out new ideas. The third is potential; when I meet the amazing people that come to the meetings, there is always potential for new learning and sometimes partnership on new business ideas. I have made some wonderful connections at the meetings. The fourth is learning; we have had some excellent speakers. EVERY meeting I learn something I can use as a leadership and executive coach. OK, if you have not signed up already, what are you waiting for?? The ICF CO is growing, and we want you to be a part of this exciting time in our history! Whether you are a member or not, please join us at our next meeting. Please introduce yourself to me, the membership director. I want to meet you and learn about the amazing person YOU are.
