ICF Central Florida Celebrates International Coaching Week with a Powerful, Insight-Provoking Program
"Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Coaching But Were Afraid to Ask."
Join us for a provocative and evocative coaching-focused discussion.
May 18 (Tampa)
* Please note that the walk-in fee is $40 for both members and guests.
Panel: Coaching Clients: Joan Reed, Organizational and Talent Development Officer for Pinellas County, Betsy Gardner Eckbert President/CEO, Winter Park Chamber of Commerce and Jessica Spivey, Founder and CEO of Tampa Bay’s Social Media Squared
Coaches: Bobbi Gemma, MCC, Tracy Stevens, MCC and Giuseppe Totino, MCC
Moderator: Lillian LeBlanc, PCC
Using a Q&A format, a panel of three coaching clients and three Master Certified Coaches will share perspectives on the benefits of being coached, the coaching process and the coaching profession.
Here’s a preview of just a few of the topics that we’ll examine:
· How can a coach be effective if he’s never walked in the client’s shoes?
· How do coaches create insights for clients?
· Should a coach ever decline a coaching engagement?
· What is the difference between coaching, consulting, mentoring and advising?
· What does it mean to be an ICF coach?
These questions – and others – will be the focus of our discussion.
Whether you are a coach, a leader or an individual interested in coaching, you’ll walk away with new thoughts and insights about your own perspective on coaching.
1. Explore and discuss the unique skillset of coaching.
2: Convey expert professional perspectives regarding the power and process of coaching.
3. Share examples from real-life clients on the value derived from a professional coaching experience.
4: Provide clarity on how prospective clients can evaluate coaches to create an ideal partnership and what steps a coach can take to enhance his/her coaching skill.
