Summer KickOff

For our last webinar before a summer break we had a great community conversation on three topics:

1. Connecting with each other & taking time to acknowledge ourselves in ongoing complexity and flux – personal, professional, and global.

  • What are we learning as we go?
  • Where do we sense new possibility?
  • What do we perceive is still needed?

2. Touching base on ICF Accreditation changes in 2022

What they are, what it means for you in your coach learning journey, what you need to know.

3. Summer book/podcast club

What are you looking forward to reading/listening to this summer?
Community share for inspiration!

A Candid Conversation About Racism

Our community participated in a powerful conversation about the Black experience in Canada, and about the impact of systemic racism on our Black colleagues and friends.

Donna Forde was the powerful voice that shared her experience with us, and allowed us to express some of our pain and confusion and fears and hopes around this topic.  Donna is a member of our coaching community and a faculty member of our Business Coaching Advantage Coaching Certification Program™, and has been leading many conversations for leaders about racism, systemic injustice and the Black experience over the last few weeks.

Embodiment, Coaching & Resilience

In our final conversation of the year we invite you to explore connection to yourself and others, resilience and inner wisdom through the lens of embodied dialogue.

CLICK HERE for a replay: We explore embodiment in the following ways:

  • How do you tap into embodied wisdom?
  • What is the connection between mindfulness and embodiment?
  • The use of embodiment to create insight and sensemaking
  • Linking embodiment to resilience
COVID Check-In for Leaders & Leadership Coaches

A resilience-based discussion, with focus on such questions as:

  • What are the conversations we want and need to be having right now – with ourselves, with our teams and leaders?
  • What is important to be talking about, as the pandemic persists and “powering through” has become a potentially unsustainable long-term response?
“I did much research and sought recommendations into the best coaching training in North America and the Business Coaching Advantage program came to the top. So I entered the training with high expectations, and the training, facilitators, and other participants exceeded all my expectations.”
Michael Perry
President, SpringHill Experiences
“Going through the course and the practicum has rejuvenated me professionally. It is as if I have found the missing piece to my leadership skills. Business coaching makes so much sense for the education sector. The feedback from my clients on how I have helped them has inspired me to want to practise these skills with other leaders., in our organization and elsewhere.
Lynne Griffith-Jones
