  • Utilize marketing strategies to increasing the exposure of the coaching profession
  • Make it easy for individuals and organizations seeking a coach in the Gulf Coast States to learn about and contact qualified coaches.

Executive Coaching Special Interest Group

New coaches and experienced coaches alike have an opportunity to leave a powerful impression with prospective corporate clients, but frequently struggle with their message and communicating the value of executive coaching. What value do they bring to the client and their sponsor? What is the process of executive coaching? How do you measure ROI? Even more fundamentally, what is executive coaching?

In the December 6 th kickoff we will explore the key components to position yourself and your work for repeat business from corporate sponsors. This 90-minute Executive Coaching Special Interest Group (ECSIG) meeting will be facilitated by Craig Juengling, PCC, coaches will discuss key learning objectives such as:

  • What the research says about how to be an effective executive coach?
  • What is executive coaching and how to coherently present it.
  • Building the business case for executive coaching.
  • What distinguishes you as an executive coach?

Let Go of Your Client’s Results
Wednesday, November 15th | 12:00pm  to 1:00pm (CST)

As coaches, we worry if we are serving our clients well. They come to us for help, guidance, and results, and when it seems to “us” that they are not reaching their goals fast enough, we worry that it is a reflection on our coaching. This Q&A inspired presentation will discuss why as coaches we make client results our results and how to let go of our “need to please” so we can coach clients effectively. When we are no longer focused on “how” we are coaching clients, or how fast they are moving, we can truly be with our clients and help them transform their lives.
