  2. 2. Observations and Personal Reflections by Dr. Lisa Hale, Ph.D., MCC, MCEC President, ICF Colorado This message is the last I shall be writing in this forum as President of ICF-CO. I am filled with many emotions,and thoughts. One thing I know is that our chapter is in good hands in 2019 with Jacquie Fedo in the lead, and with the board she has gathered with your approval. Knowing that makes leaving this post easier. Still, I am sad to go. It has truly been my great honor to serve the profession of coaching, to serve each of you individually, and to establish and make real a vision for what our organization can be. I personally have grown enormously in the process right alongside our organization. I’d like to share a mixture of observations and personal reflections. When I was first presented with the invitation to be President Elect, I had already served on the board for nearly a year as Education Director. My experience of the board was that it functioned just fine, and our chapter was fine. I agreed to take the President Elect role because someone jokingly prodded me with the remark, "You can’t be a leadership coach if you don’t lead the chapter." So, I said yes. The truth is that when the opportunity was there, something inside me said, "Do this!" What do you call that when you have inner guidance like that? Is it inner wisdom? That internal God-Wink? I call it all of those things. I got the wink and took the plunge. I had no idea what I was stepping into. I really had no clue what I saying yes to, but I knew I was a yes for this assignment. By the time I really took the reins, there was so much more to do, so much more to address, and so much more required of me than I had ever imagined when I said yes. Yet, I had committed, so there was nothing else to do but be present to what was needed and start figuring it out. I was guided to make a great many more inner wisdom decisions. Assembling a stellar team, establishing principles that we all could agree to (many hands, commitment, good will, creativity, enthusiasm). I am grateful that those winks guided me, and that all I had to do was stay the course. I have grown enormously every step of the way. Now that we are three years from that day when I said yes, I am stunned at the changes I
  3. 3. see in all of us: you as members, us as an organization, me personally. We have set the stage for a thriving and growing organization. We can handle any size membership now. We have a solid financial foundation and excellent systems in place for both tracking and sharing information, so that our decisions are well informed. Our presence is growing. Our coaches are growing. We have professionalized every aspect of the board – the serving on it, the way we interact, the way we execute, and the way we keep track of things. Thus, we lead with confidence. All of that is truly wonderful and critical. However, what I am most awed by is what I’ve seen in our profession, and the expression of our profession in Colorado. The profession of coaching provides humanity with a critical resource for its evolution. Our work is only as important as the thriving of the entire planet. That’s how I see it. Because our work is so critical and requires us to be so intimately trusted in the most vulnerable of places (in the presence of an adult willing to grow), it is absolutely imperative that we treat our work with the highest integrity and professionalism. Since that is what coaching is, doesn’t it make sense that our professional organization support us in our professionalism at every step of the way? I believe so. My experience leading our organization has helped me crystallize even more just how fundamental our own personal growing is to our performance as coaches. I am grateful for the shaping of me that your trust in me has wrought. Thank you so much for that. There are more people seeking the help, support and growth that professionally excellent coaches can support than there are coaches of that high caliber. We are needed. Our organization is needed. I have been honored to serve you. I have been enriched in the experience. I love you, what we all do, and this organization. I am so glad I said yes. To the next level. Love Lisa Dr. Lisa Hale 2017-2018 ICF-CO President
  4. 4. A Holiday Gift What we do for our clients is hold a sacred space where they can vulnerably and profoundly experience lasting shifts. Things that once done, cannot be undone. Years ago, a coach friend of mine took me through an exercise where I created that transformative shift creating more joy, peace, love and connection in the midst of the holiday hustle. I offer her gift to you. Create your own quiet moment of reflection and put yourself into the future. Pretend you have a coffee date with yourself to look back over the holiday season, and you notice that it has been one of the better ones. Consider who you spent your time with, and how you were present. Notice what filled you up and rejuvenated your soul. Embrace those feelings and set your intentions to the choices that will earn your YES and have more freedom to the ones that won’t. May you be filled with blessings and abundance available to each of us. Cheers, Jacquie Fedo 2019 ICF-CO President THE IGNITE PRO BONO PROJECT HAS LAUNCHED! On November 9, ICF-CO in partnership with the Posner Center for International Development, launched a pro bono coaching project under the ICF Global Ignite Initiative. 8 coaches and 8 clients representing 7 different non-profit organizations were matched for coaching. As per the Ignite requirements, each coach is credentialed with the ICF, and each client organization’s work relates to the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goal #4 Education.
  5. 5. Each participating coachee is receiving up to 10 session hours of coaching over a six- month period. At the kickoff meeting at the Posner Center on November 9, coaches and coachees that attended got to meet each other in person and learn the context for this project. There was so much gratitude and excitement in the room! ICF Colorado is tremendously appreciative of the volunteer coaches: Walt Hastings, Jacquie Fedo, Catherine Saar, Joan Eden, Sara Boaz, Tracy Burke, Jim Tedford, and Patti Risch.

Facilitated by: Jacquie Fedo | | 303.748.4161 Continuous Coaching Development This Education Group will meet in December 2018. We are calling the next sessions of the Continuous Coaching Development Education Group, "Working on the Core" -- those things at the heart of what makes us grow. You’ll gain 2.5 CCE Units towards your ICF certification, and .5 Resources credit. Here's the agenda: 6.00 – 6.10pm: Meet and Greet 6.10 – 6.30pm: An icebreaker/warm up to get us in the frame and perceptually ready 6.30 – 6.55pm: Brief Introduction to a model or thought process which might help you as you work with your clients, and then a chance for you to select one of the ICF Core Competencies to work on. 6.55 – 8.30pm: Small Group Triads or Quads. This is a process of “close in coaching” where one person acts as the coach, someone else the client, and then either one or two observers, depending upon attendance. Our aim is that everyone has the opportunity to practice some “how to’s” on a competency or indicator of a competency they select. For instance, deepening our listening, or designing actions, etc. These will all start from establishing a “coaching agreement” for the first 5- 10 minutes of their practice session. Then, each coach will have 10 minutes to coach the client, with observer(s) collecting evidence of how the coach did in practicing their chosen skill area. There will be a “time-out” of 10 minutes during the practice period for either the client, coach or observer(s) to spot the coach doing something well, ask for help, or simply make an observation. So 30 minutes total, then swap roles until all have completed. Quads will have to work faster, but will get more learning! 8.30 to 9.00pm: Review, summarize, and commit, plus share any announcements. Come get yourself ready for a set of fantastic evenings of exploring why coaching is the best way of leading and learning there is on the planet. These workshops are highly interactive "live coaching" practice of all the ICF core competencies. This offering is designed for seasoned coaches to keep their skills sharp through practicing their contracting, listening, partnering, questioning, designing actions, etc., and getting feedback from other coaches on how well they did on their chosen area of practice. Also designed for those new to coaching to see how they might incorporate the
  13. 13. coach's toolkit in how they lead others. Benefits: Live coaching practice and feedback on chosen core competencies Introduction to new material/models and tools used by other coaching training organizations approved by the ICF Increased understanding of how coaching applies to leadership in a variety of situations and groups of people Growth in confidence to use a coaching approach in our lives and in our work Exploration is becoming a credentialed coach is the right career path Mixing with other coaching professionals in the region to share best practice Feel the stretch and learn something new to practice each and every time!

At that point, you’ll be scrambling to go back in your records to find CCEs from programs you attended, mentor coaching hours, and hours of coaching client sessions. So go ahead and create a spreadsheet or other document, and update it at the end of every month. You’ll be glad you did! And ALWAYS request CCEs for program you attend, even if you’re not working toward a credential right now. Our Colorado ICF Chapter encourages all members to be credentialed with the ICF and to continue to improve their coaching skills by striving to achieve the next level of credentialing. Many coaches find that the choice to pursue credentialing is often driven less by any external requirement and more by the desire to up-level the skill and range of our coaching and attain greater mastery, thus enabling us to deliver more value to current and future clients. To qualify for a credential, a certain number of coach-specific training hours are required. To renew a credential, 40 CCE’s (Continuing Coach Education) hours are required. Our Chapter can supply some of these hours for you through attendance at monthly meetings or participation in special events, such as webinars, workshops, and the ICF-CO Conference. If you anticipate needing CCEs, you can register to receive them when you sign up on our website to attend any of our events for which CCE's are being offered. Even if you’re not currently pursuing credentialing (or advanced credentialing), we suggest that you request the CCE certificate whenever the option is offered, and keep it on file for later use, as needed. You can also ask our Virtual
  15. 15. Assistant, Kelly Johnson, to provide you with CCE certificates going back as far as two years previous (but no farther than two years). Kelly may be reached at 303-840-5994 or at Please allow at least two weeks advance notice to process your request. 2018 ICF Colorado Leadership Team Lisa Hale President 505-690-3354 Jacquie Fedo President Elect 303-748-4161 Carl Dierschow Co-Education Director 970-225-6889 Suzanne Mariner Co-Education Director 303-910-9534
