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 6th 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?

To register, send us an email through the Contact page.

*Joining this ECSIG is a $30 annual commitment for any dues paying member of the ICF Gulf
Coast. Your $30 goes to support the overall financial health of our Chapter.
