2017 Core Competency Teleclass Series Program

Mark your calendars!  ICF Michigan’s Core Coaching Competency Teleclass Series will take place from 1:00-2:00 pm ET on the 2nd Tuesday of every month starting in March, 2017.

Not sure if this series is for you?  

  • Are you working (or planning to work) on your ICF credential and need a better understanding of the competencies?
  • Have you completed some coach training and want to learn more?
  • Are you a seasoned coach wanting to “sharpen the saw”?
  • Do you need CCU credits?

If you answered YES to any of these questions then you will definitely want to sign up for ICF Michigan’s 2017 Core Coaching Competency Teleclass Series.

Each month the class will focus on one of the eleven ICF core coaching competencies. Participants will gain an increased understanding of what the competency looks like in practice; and receive tools, resources and insights from other coaches on the call.

These classes were one of the main reasons I decided to again become an ICF-MICH member. As expected, I found them tremendously educational and valuable in improving my practice. These classes acted as a catalyst that re-energized my love for coaching on a monthly basis.
– Coach Matt Kilroy, BS, LRT, WC-C, AE-C, Total Wellness Solutions, LLC

If you are serious about having a coaching business, it is strongly advised that you master these competencies and pursue your ICF credential. By doing so, you will become part of a highly respected community that has chosen to regulate itself and be accountable to their clients and the coaching community.

As always, these teleclasses are free to ICF Michigan members. Non-members are welcome to join us for a fee.

Biz Dev Chats

It’s a NEW SERIES!!! We heard you at the water cooler and other places around town. We heard you love the coaching, but get bogged down by how to establish, build and expand your business. Alternatively, you are challenged by the time-stealing administration that takes us away from our true passion – coaching others to achieve their true potential! Here’s an opportunity to learn more – and maybe make your business life manageable.

These are every-other-month sessions for coaches facilitated for the first time this year by ICF Michigan member and Education Board Champion, Beki Fraser. We will explore some of the strategies for establishing, building and succeeding in our coaching practices within a safe, confidential space to learn from each other. Note that these calls are not recorded and we encourage participation so we can learn from each other.

Calls are free for ICF Michigan members but registration is required.
