ICF Michigan Newsletter
Dear ICF Michigan Community,
Is it too late to wish you a Happy New Year? I hope not. To my way of thinking, if it's still January, it's still a new year. It's taken me a few weeks to get my feet on the ground as your new ICF MI President, but I think I'm finding my footing and am now ready to begin the journey. So, welcome to a new year of participating in the growing ranks of Michigan Coaches.
So, with this newsletter, I'm launching the year of ENGAGEMENT in ICF Michigan. As a way of demonstrating this, I invite you to participate each month in a conversation related to coaching. The point is to call forth more of your voices - to use this monthly newsletter as one of many forums for the exchange of ideas and wisdom from one coach to another.
Here's the Coaching Question for this month:
What motivates you (or your clients) to become engaged in anything?
If you choose to share your thoughts and insights with the rest of us, please simply follow these guidelines:
While it won't be possible to post all of your contributions, a selection of your thoughts will be published in the following month's newsletter.
While we're on the topic of engagement, I encourage you to consider what you can do this year to be more fully engaged in ICF MI. We need your assistance on committees; we need your experience and talents to help us grow and to bring enriching development experiences to our members. There are a number of requests for volunteers at the bottom of this newsletter - please consider one of many opportunities to make a contribution to your fellow
coaches and to our chosen profession.
I'm excited to be working with a newly elected Board of Directors comprised of experienced, committed coaches who are passionate about coaching and about ICF MI. If you haven't been to the website lately, I encourage you to check it out and become familiar with your 2013 Board members. I've asked each of them to provide a simple statement about what has them excited about ICF MI. I was inspired by their responses and hope you are as well.
So - Welcome to ICF MI in 2013! I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at one of the Coach Cafes or events in the months ahead.
