Some good news to report! Chapter member, Lillian LeBlanc, who is employed by Baptist Health South Florida, has been building an internal coaching practice there, over the past 2 years, leveraging the ICF core competencies. The long-range vision is be able to offer the support of an ICF-credentialed internal coach to any leader who desires it. To this end, they developed a coach-specific training program, expanded it to meet the 60 hour minimum educational requirement for ICF membership, and enhanced it to conform to the standards of an ICF-Approved, Coach-Specific Training Program (ACSTH). Lillian received word this month, that the program has been approved! This is a major milestone for the internal coaching service practice and an accomplishment that generates great pride among all who worked hard to make it happen.
Bob Canino, Chapter Director, speaking for the entire ICFCF Leadership Team, offered his congratulations to Lillian on this great achievement. We can all be proud of this awesome feat. Please offer your personal congratulations to Lillian when you can.
