#inthisTOGETHER

During the month of May, in honour of ICW 2020, the ICF Toronto has launched an exciting initiative to mobilize our community to provide coaching to help anyone navigate through this unprecedented time.

To date 38 of our ICF Toronto members have pledged to coach 151 people!

Thank you to those who have stepped up to pledge and deliver pro-bono virtual coaching - as a result you have raised the bar.

COLLECTIVELY OUR NEW GOAL IS FOR 200 PEOPLE TO EXPERIENCE COACHING

Message from the President, Barb Rosen Schreiber

Being a coach during a pandemic continues to be challenging to navigate. Our clients need us more than ever, but some coaching engagements have been forced to end as many businesses struggle to survive. Maintaining total confidentiality/privacy with our coaching can be challenging for us and our clients with kids and partners in the same residence.

Through all of this, I continue to be inspired by the resilience and supportive community of ICF Toronto coaches. I’ve found ICF’s COVID-19 resources for coaches really helpful and I hope you are leveraging these to keep strong for yourself, family, friends, and your clients.

Our new ICF membership virtual programming offers the opportunity to build:

  • connection with other members,
  • coaching competence and approaches, while also collecting CCEUs
  • business strategies to bring value to existing clients and create relationships that can lead to future business.

In April we kicked off our virtual webinars with the most well attended event in our history – over 300 people celebrated the accomplishments and contributions of our ICF Toronto award winners (click HERE to learn more about this year’s winners) and learned from a former ICF Toronto Board member, Michael Bungay Stanier. Our other webinars were also very highly rated. Focus on your personal and business development needs by registering for our May 27th session, "The Roadmap to Resilience: How to Thrive in Challenging Times", with Mark Black.

There is a great reason this month to pay your Activity Fee for 2020 and sign up for our month-long International Coaching Week program! You can also increase your visibility as a coach by making sure your profile is up to date in our “find a coach” directory. These are only a few high value activities and services you have access to as an ICF Toronto Chapter member.

Here are a few messages from ICF Global to be aware of:

  • Installment payments for your ICF Global membership are now available for coaches who have not yet renewed their ICF membership. Click HERE for more information on eligibility and payment process.
  • ICF Global has launched the new Digital Badges for ICF credential-holders. If you are an ACC, PCC or MCC, you will have received an email from admin@youracclaim.com letting you know you have a new badge to accept. Read more here about what you need to do to accept and post your badge.
  • From April to June, Board members are joining leaders from over 140 ICF chapters at ICF’s annual Global Leadership Forum (GLF), virtually of course. We are learning and sharing strategies and initiatives, best practices, challenges and successes to create thriving chapters around the world. ICF Toronto is proud to have introduced our first Ignite initiative this past year, and you may recognize some faces in this video introduced at GLF: 2020 Ignite initiative.
We are committed to continuing to learn and be agile in meeting the needs of you, our ICF Toronto community and making a difference in our world.
