New Alliance - ATD Dallas and ICF North Texas
Southwest Learning Summit on August 22, 2019
ICF-North Texas is building a new alliance with our local Association for Talent Development (ATD) chapter here in Dallas. The synergy between our two organizations is a natural fit. The talent development community continues to broaden their focus into areas that overlap with ICF members such as coaching, leadership development and assessments. We see this as an opportunity to align our chapters in ways that can benefit both our memberships.
We are jump starting this new partnership by sponsoring an ICF-NT exhibit at the ATD Dallas Southwest Learning Summit on August 22. The summit will take place at the Plano Centre, 2000 E. Spring Creek Parkway, Plano from 8:00 AM – 4:30 PM. Talent Development professionals from across North Texas will be there to learn about industry trends, share tips and techniques, and network with local industry leaders. Keynote speaker and author Lee Colan will talk about his new book The Positive Impact of Coaching. All attendees will receive a copy.
This is one event you won’t want to miss! To learn more visit https://tddallas.org/SWLS.
ICF-NT members can attend this event at the discounted price of $279 (the same price as ATD Dallas members). To take advantage of this special offer please email Todd Strosnider at email@example.com and indicate that you are an ICF North Texas member.
Call to Action:
Are you a published author and an ICF credentialed coach? We are asking for book donations to be raffled off at the ICF-NT Expo booth during the Learning Summit. If you would like to donate 3-5 copies of your book, please email Susan Daniel at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Save the Date - Celebrate Coaching 2019
October 11, 2019 (Exact time and location coming soon)
Building a "coaching culture" has gained much momentum in recent years as a way of improving organizational effectiveness and developing stronger leaders. But it's not a simple thing to do and it's not always clear exactly how or why to do it.
On October 11, 2019, ICF North Texas will be exploring these questions at our signature event, Celebrate Coaching 2019.
In addition to sharing a meal and networking with like-minded professionals, you'll be treated to a presentation of recent research conducted by ICF and the Human Capital Institute (HCI), which identifies the six elements necessary to create a coaching culture. Plus, we'll have a panel discussion with companies that have had success building coaching cultures. And we'll finish the event with a keynote presentation.
Save the Date—Friday, October 11. More details coming soon.
