March 2014 ICF Colorado Newsletter

  1. 1. ICF Colorado Newsletter March 2014 IN THIS ISSUE: Message from Stephanie Wachman President, ICF Colorado Spring is just around the corner and that means we will soon see a renewal of plants, trees, gardens and lightweight clothing. Renewal this spring also means that it's time to revisit your status with ICF Colorado and ICF Global. Many memberships are coming up, and we hope that you will continue to support us in the year(s) to come. Professional coaching has grown rapidly over the last several years. While this presents coaches with many new opportunities, it also creates a more competitive marketplace. In the 2012 ICF Global Coaching Study, coaches said their No. 1 obstacle was "untrained individuals who call themselves coaches." Coaches need credibility to set themselves apart and a community to grow alongside. ICF CO and ICF Global are two separate memberships with two separate membership fees with terrific benefits. It's important to become a member of both. ICF Members both Global and Local get instant credibility by using the ICF brand and by becoming part of the largest community of professionally trained coaches. Top 4 Benefits of ICF Global Membership Click here to join ICF Global Professional clout: The ICF sets the standard in the profession. The existence of the ICF Code of Ethics, Ethical Conduct Review Process, member eligibility requirements, and the ICF Core Competencies tells the world that ICF Members are held to high standards.
