ICF Colorado Newsletter September 2017

  1. 1. September 2017 Message from Dr. Lisa Hale 2017 President The Return on Investment of Professional Coaching There has been a lot of discussion about the ROI of professional coaching. The attention to ROI of coaching tackles this issue from a number of angles: · Is there one? · If there is, what is it? · How do we measure it? · When? And, How? is coaching best used? And, lest you imagine this discussion only happens in the corporate context of coaching, let me assure you that it is not the case! The questions "Does coaching work?" And specifically, "Will it work for me?" are ubiquitous among all people thinking about supporting themselves and the achievement of their goals with coaching. My own take on this is naturally that coaching works a great deal better than anything other process, to achieve targeted personal growth. I'm sure we all could agree that coaching is effective – or we wouldn't be coaches. Right? However, the question of the ROI is not really for us. For others must see coaching as valuable in order to invest in it! Coaching is expensive – and it should be. It is a very intensive 1:1 process which requires a great deal of training, experience and commitment on the part of the coach. Much research has been done to help organizations make decisions about their resource allocation in staff development. It turns out that their research applies to professional coaching that is used for personal ends just as well. Andrew Neitlich (Head, Center for Executive Coaching) has compiled some good data on the return on investment in coaching (CLICK here for the article). Here are some interesting statistics: • The International Coach Federation has found an average return of $4.30 and $7.90 for every $1 invested in professional coaching (through a review of studies conducted by a wide variety of organizations). • ICF also found that training combined with coaching increases productivity by four times more than training alone (which makes sense given that coaching works over time to reinforce the work of training, and also given the research that almost 85% of most training content is lost after two weeks). • Fast Company Magazine did a survey and found that 92% of leaders being coached said that they plan to use a coach again. • Companies that provide coaching report benefits through improvements in: – Productivity – Quality – Organizational strength – Customer service and reduced customer complaints – Retention, especially among those receiving coaching – Cost reduction and bottom line profitability Since many of our members are not organizational or executive coaches specifically, I want to point out how these same results apply outside of the organization: • Individuals that engage professional coaching experience improvements in: – Personal productivity – Improved time management – Improved strength in relationships – Improved ability to navigate conflict – Greater commitment to life goals – Improved relationship with money Executive coaching receives much attention, hence its ROI is studied. However, just like the internet was initially invented to improve communication and data resource management for the military, but now is widely used for by more than 50% of the world's population – research on executive coaching ROI applies for personal coaching as well. Further research data shows: • Executives and leaders receiving coaching report these benefits: – Improved working relationships with direct reports – Improved working relationships with immediate supervisors – Better teamwork – Improved working relationships with peers – Greater job satisfaction – Reduction in conflicts – Improved organizational commitment – Stronger relationships with external customers IN THIS ISSUE: President's Message Dr. Lisa Hale September 14th In Person Meeting Organizational Leadership Coaching Pilot Program - Starting Oct 2017! Keynotes, Breakout Speakers & POP Talks Announced for "Fearless Leadership: Creating Powerful Results - ICF-CO Conference Make Your Biz Presence Known - Sponsors for Fall Conference Upcoming Programs Sept In-Person Meeting; October Virtual Program Credential Corner Do You Have an Amazing Program for ICF Colorado?

  2. 2. My perspective is that the personal growth that allows a leader in an organization to achieve the results above is the same that would allow an individual to live his and her life with much greater joy, satisfaction and peace. Your ICF-Colorado Chapter leadership is committed to providing you the pillars of an extraordinary coaching practice: 1. The opportunity to be coached by tremendous coaches. 2. The opportunity to coach a lot! 3. Ongoing professional development. 4. A community of professionally excellent coaches. To that end, please pay specific attention to our upcoming Fall Conference and to forthcoming information about our pilot partnership with the University of Colorado – Denver. To your continued professional excellence! In Service, Lisa Dr. Lisa E. Hale, PCC President Lisa@focusedleadershipconsulting.com 505-690-3354 Join our September 14th Meeting Special Interest Groups (SIGs) Click here to Learn More Main Meeting: 7:00pm - 9:00pm Light Meal served "Vital Signs: The Nature and Nurture of Passion" Special Interest Groups (SIGs) will be conducted from 6:00 - 6:50pm before the general meeting. Location: Colorado Free University in Lowry, 7653 E. 1st Place, Denver, CO 80230 Speaker: Gregg Levoy Passion is a concept that’s talked about a lot in the business, career, coaching and leadership arenas – employee engagement, mission statements, finding a calling. But passion is much bigger (and deeper) than what happens M-F 9-5. It’s a life skill – a stance – that helps bring vitality to all our engagements: work life, family life, school life, love life, creative life, social life, and spiritual life. Passion is the impulse toward growth and aliveness, and not only helps awaken us from the trances and torpors of daily life, but is a survival mechanism, because our attachment to life depends on our interest in it. This presentation is about what inspires passion and what defeats it, how we lose it and how we get it back – both for ourselves and our clients. It’s not just about finding a passion, but living passionately. Not just passion as a place we get to, but a place we come from, whether in the arenas of creativity and self- expression, service and spirituality, adventure and discovery, or relationship. ======================== PLEASE NOTE: Everyone must register for the monthly meetings & events including ICF Colorado members Cost: ICF-CO Annual Activity Fee pre-paid: ICF Colorado Members and Affiliates - Free Pay As You Go or Non-Members - $35 ATD-RMC Member Registration - $30 (with discount code) CLICK HERE TO REGISTER for the September 14, 2017 In-Person Meeting Organizational Leadership Coaching Pilot Program - Starting Oct 2017!

  6. 6. ICF-CO Membership - Feedback In the last month, the Board has reached out to you to get feedback on your experience as an ICF-CO member. If you took the time to chat with a board member, THANK YOU! We are continuing this effort because we want to have as many member conversations as possible. Here is a sampling of what we’ve learned so far... What members like about our chapter: • Annual conference • Virtual presentations • Monthly meetings, especially the longer presentations with Q&A • CCEUs • Warmth of membership • Meeting other coaches What is least liked about our chapter: • Distance to monthly meetings • Squeezing in short sessions before the longer session at the meetings • Challenges around navigating the credentialing process and wanting more support • Not enough networking with other coaches Recommendations for the chapter: • Make webinars free for members • Add networking events for members to connect more deeply • Give some attention to life coaching in the programming versus focus on leadership, business and executive • Include live coaching demonstrations • Promote visibility and value of coaching in the area • More emphasis on relationship building over technology • New member orientation If you have been contacted by a board member (and you should have) and haven’t connected yet, please help make the conversation happen.
