ICF Foundation reflects the passion and commitment of coaches to make a difference. Each of us want to make a difference. This session delves into how we can create, though our emerging potential as coaches, the difference. When we apply coaching to humanity’s greatest challenges the seemingly impossible becomes imaginable. The imagined becomes compelling and with human will, the compelling becomes possible. This in turn, multiplies the impact of coaching for societal progress.
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 coach leaders flourish as a whole and not just as the parts. This presentation gets to the very spirit and inspiration of coaching. It provides and opportunity to collaborate on what can be achieved and where the insertion points are with social change organizations.
