International Coaching Week
International Coaching Week started today in the UK. It is promoted by the International Coach Federation and members like myself can choose to celebrate this in a variety of ways: delivering talks/seminars, offering taster sessions, doing demonstration coaching sessions, writing coaching articles for local press, etc. The ICF website shows a great range of ideas and starting points for coaches.
This year I’ve chosen to offer complimentary 45-minute phone-coaching taster sessions. My previous blog today (Help! I’m being coached!) suggested some ideas for how you could prepared for your first coaching session. The rest of this week’s blogs will be focusing on other coaching topics. Some will be more useful to coaches, others to anyone with an interest in personal development.
If you have a particular area of personal development that you like to read about in blogs, let me know in the comments box below, and I’ll see what I can do!
A few topical questions that I’d also like to ask here:
- What would you like to know about coaching?
- How would you like to see the coaching profession promoted?
- What kind of events have you attended in the past that have celebrated or promoted coaching?
- If you’ve had coaching before, what have been the main benefits?
Look forward to hearing your thoughts!
Thank you for taking time to read this blog.
