By Pam Van Dyke, PhD, PCC

June 12 ICF North Texas Coaches Workshop
Group Coaching Competencies:
Leveraging the Power of Collective Wisdom
By Pam Van Dyke, PhD, PCC
1:30 to 3:30 PM (Immediately following the luncheon program)
The purpose of group coaching is to engage each individual on their own respective goals by using the vehicle of group process. Leveraging the input of other members in the group, individual awareness can be increased (Lewin, 1951; Corey, 1990; Forsyth, 2006). This approach can be referred to as a horizontal approach because each individual is at the same level and is not inter-related organizationally or otherwise. It is one coach working with a group of individuals who share similarities personally or professionally.
Those who do not come from a group dynamic background and aspire to coach groups will understand the key components about both group process and group facilitation. This knowledge can make a difference in how a coach facilitates the group and thereby how the participants will internalize the experience.
- Recognize the role of the Coach in the group coaching process
- Review the structure necessary to conduct group coaching successfully by being introduced to the PERFORM™ model of group coaching
- Discuss the process of coaching versus the process of facilitation
- Practice the components of group coaching through a role play experience

June 25 ICF North Texas
Rendezvous - this lovely French word means “a place where many people go to spend time”.
The next North Texas ICF Rendezvous will be on Thursday, June 25, at the Coffee House Café, 6150 Frankford Rd in Dallas. Stop by between 5 and 8 pm for hors d'oeuvres and great company. You may order wine or beverages from the menu. It will be a lovely evening of informal conversation. Several members will be returning from ICF Regional Conference in Kansas City and will be sharing their take-aways.
Please register online so we know the attendance for catering.
As we complete the first third of the year, reflecting back is a very pleasant activity. Looking forward is even more exciting.
Attendance at the luncheon meetings has been high and post-meeting evaluations are very positive. Laurel Rolls and her committee have more great programs coming this summer and fall. We’re even working on having a webinar or two before the year is out (but no promises).
We had our first networking program in Fort Worth in March. We gathered at the top of Reata in Fort Worth and enjoyed fellowship under the setting sun. More networking is coming in late June, so look for details coming later this month.
In the past, we’ve been hard at work on Prism in May and have not had the opportunity to focus on the ICF Global Celebration of Coaching Week. In the past, our chapter has generally participated by having an opportunity for our members to engage in pro bono coaching for a day. New and old members alike are asking for more opportunities to engage with larger communities. If you are one of these coaches, you will want to be at the luncheon meeting on May 8. Marcia Zidle and her volunteers set a goal to go beyond a single coaching week and to provide our North Texas coaches with some longer term possibilities for coaching worthwhile causes. We’d love to show North Texas what its coaching community can do!
May will also feature the formal launch of our 2015 Prism Program, rather than its finish. The Prism Award is designed to recognize, honor, celebrate, and learn from organizations that have embraced coaching as an integral part of their leadership strategy. The Prism event will culminate on October 1 with a panel discussion involving the finalists, a luncheon, a keynote address, and a training workshop. Erika Horton and her team will make several announcements in May.
At the luncheon in April, we started Table Talks. Sara Smith met with a full table of coaches interested in ICF credentialing to answer any questions they might have about the process. Erika Horton will be directing the May Table Talk on the topic of Prism. If you are working with a business that you think should be recognized for coaching in their culture, you might want to find Erika and join that Table Talk. She’ll be available starting around 11:10.
I’ll see you at the luncheon on May 8.
