Are those New
  2. 2. Year's intentions/goals/resolutions still active? Lately I've been pondering the value that I bring to my coaching clients. We all have experienced the power of coaching in our own lives and have experienced that amazing feeling when we know we have truly helped someone make an important change. But what about when we end a coaching engagement feeling meh? For me, the inner critic kicks in with questions like, "Did I provide value or enough value?" Or "Was this a good coaching match for me?" There might even be some blame of the coachee. I experienced the power of the inner critic when I coached someone hired by the organization that terminated them. I was hired to coach this person to secure a new job. I accepted the gig being clear that I would coach the whole person, provide relevant assessments and not take responsibility for them getting a new position. (Not to mention that I don’t review resumes in my coaching business). When the engagement completed, I knew that she had increased her self-awareness and took significant actions to find new work, BUT she did not secure a new job. I felt unclear whether the coaching was helpful, even though she reported it was because she wasn't where she wanted to be at the end of our engagement. Fast forward a year later, and she contacted me to say how helpful our sessions were and would I consider restarting coaching with her? She had secured fulfilling work and wanted to use coaching around some other challenges that arose for her. Of course, getting her request made me feel good, and it also had me reflecting on the lessons. Maybe you can resonate: Don’t underestimate the value of professional coaching.1. Trust the process, it works.2. The inner critic can be loud, and it seems to connect well with our wired in negativity bias; take it lightly and not as truth. 3. Coaching the person versus the situation is the more powerful aspect of coaching.4. I invite you to reflect on those coaching engagements that kick in your inner critic and explore what’s really true and there for you to learn. ICF-CO Communications Director Hi Inspirers!

  10. 10. Do you love to work with movement and body awareness in your coaching? Or is this an area outside of your comfort zone, which you would like to understand better? Whether this is home ground or new territory for you, this is an opportunity to keep growing and learning. The Somatic Coaching Education Group will be focusing on a variety of body-oriented coaching approaches that integrate the use of movement or heightened body awareness. Although the body is key to how we take action in the world and to the resulting outcomes, this domain is often not addressed in coaching conversations. This group is for anyone interested in exploring how they might enrich their own coaching practice through mindfulness of the body in both their personal and professional development. It will also be useful for coaches who are already experienced with somatic awareness and want to explore new territory and best practices. We will explore a variety of approaches to Somatic Coaching, with several different session facilitators over the course of the year. The group is designed to be a rich, experiential way to deepen your understanding of how to coach with the body in mind. We will build on our progress of integrating and expanding our embodiment of somatic practices in our coaching over the course of the year, so attendance at all sessions is strongly encouraged in order to get the most out of the experience. Key Learning Points & Benefits for Participants: - Develop a more somatically aware approach in your life and in your coaching - Develop sensory acuity and daily practices to cultivate an embodied presence, personally and professionally - Experience peer-coaching during and between monthly sessions, and practice specific skills in a supportive environment, with focused feedback.Sessions will incorporate various approaches to experiential learning, including practices in body awareness, movement, and cultivating somatic coaching mastery through peer-coaching practice and feedback. - During the sessions, each group member will have the opportunity to set specific actions, share challenges and receive feedback - Learning will continue between sessions through simple daily somatic practices to support your progress, as well as an ongoing group dialogue area on Basecamp - On Basecamp we will have a living document to which we can all contribute, that will be a reading and resource list with articles, research information, book recommendations, and other Somatic Coaching resources, as well as an area for handouts from the monthly sessions Facilitated by: Zora Boas |

This online group is a forum for coaches to share and learn from each other’s experience with various assessments and certifications. Participants will choose to lead a session to demonstrate an assessment in which they're certified. As the session leader, you are encouraged to offer participants the opportunity to take the assessment before the session. During the session you have 15-20 minutes to brief participants before they move into virtual rooms and spend 45 minutes alternating coaching, being coached, and observing coaching using the assessment tool. We finish with a 15-25 minute debrief. Simulated experiences may be used. Participants are encouraged to take the assessment and will coach to the assessment results whether real or simulated. Note: This is intended for sharing resources only; not for sales or solicitation. Key learning points and benefits for participants: * Coaches will learn what’s available and gain real insight from trusted peers who are able to talk to pros/cons without the typical sales pitch, thus saving time and money. Participants will learn how assessment may be used in their coaching engagements.

Facilitated by: Sarah Roberts | Credentials Corner November 2018 (2019 data coming soon) Total Pre-Paid Fee Persons: 104 Affiliate: 7 (provide supportive role for coaches) Students: 12 Professional Coaches: 86 Coaches who are global members: 77 Credentialed Coaches ACC: 21 (35%) PCC: 25 (42%) MCC: 14 (23%) Total Credentialed Coaches: 60 (70%) Non-Credentialed Coaches: 26 (30%) This information is supplied to give you a "bird’s eye" view of where our Chapter stands in having ICF credentialed coaches. . Important: Notice about CCEs This is a reminder that Continuing Coaching Education credits are important! Even if you’re not pursuing a credential right now, maybe you’ll want to in the future. 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
  14. 14. 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 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. 2019 ICF Colorado Leadership Team Jacquie Fedo President 303-748-4161 Chris Coward President Elect 267-226-7935
