Program: Focus on 2012 - You and ICF-NT
As we forward to 2012, it’s the perfect time to reflect and plan. In January we will quickly share where we are as a chapter and our plans for 2012, with a particular focus on helping you understand how to get the most value from ICF and the North Texas Coaches resources available to you. The focus will then turn to YOU and YOUR 2012 goals. This interactive session will include a quick assessment along with coaching in pairs.
Program: What is Neuro-Axiology
The February 10 Luncheon features Peter Demarest, the co-founder and President of Axiogenics, LLC; co-author of the book, Answering the Central Question; and a pioneer in the field of neuro-axiology (the integration of mind-brain science and value science).
Program: Assessment Showcase
Several chapter members have asked, "Which assessments should I use with my clients?" "How can I best use assessments when coaching?" "What does it take to become certified in various assessment tools?" At the March 9 Luncheon Program you will hear from these experts on four assessment tools that are applicable to a range of coaching contexts.
Program: Got Message?
Note: This is a breakfast meeting featuring Rick Tamlyn. One key lesson I've learned is that “people hire you, who just happen to have coaching skills -- rather than hiring a coach, who just happens to be you.” This distinction is profound once fully understood and integrated. This 1 hour session will address this very topic and support coaches in finding their own message, which in turn will “up our game” as a coaching community.
Workshop: The BIGGER Game is coming to DFW?
ICF-NT is sponsoring the Bigger Game workshop, April 13-14, 2012 with Rick Tamlyn, MCC and our own Sara Smith. The Bigger Game is a way for coaches and their clients to find passion and direction to create a new future.
