Join the ICF Foundation and ICF Toronto for International Coaching Week!

ICF Foundation reflects the passion and commitment of coaches to make a difference. Each of us want to make a difference. As coaches, we know that the right questions at the right time in the right place can change conversations and make an impact. Come along to this session so we can identify what matters for bridging the gap between what is needed and possible through the transformational benefits of coaching for the benefit of our planet.

Are you passionate about the social impact coaching can have for mission-driven organizations and wonder, "what I can do as a coach for Diversity and Inclusion?" Join the ICF Foundation and ICF Toronto on May 17, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. during International Coaching Week. We are calling all coaches and nonprofit leaders t discuss how we can deliver the greatest possible contribution of coaching for humanity and the planet!

This session, immersed in small group dialogue and wider room sharing, will strive to create shared meaning for social progress and question how we as leaders flourish as a whole and not just as the parts.

This presentation gets to the very spirit and inspiration of coaching. It provides an opportunity to collaborate on what can be achieved and where the insertion points are with mission-driven organizations.

This session covers 75% Core Competencies and 25% Resource Development.

Learning Objectives:

  • Acknowledge commitment and responsibility as a coach (updated core competency 2 embodies a coaching mindset and, specifically, 2.4 "remains aware of and open to the influence of context on self and others." Also considering the revised Code of Ethics: #28, "Am aware of my and my clients' impact on society. I adhere to the philosophy of ''going good' versus 'avoiding bad'.")
  • Coaches' role in impacting societal progress of Diversity and Inclusion.
  • Understand how coaches can engage in the greatest possibility for humanity.
  • Learn about the current efforts and impact from ICF Foundation initiatives.
