Coaching programs to be offered pro bono to individuals and businesses

“Knowing how coaching benefits individuals and businesses of all kinds, our coaches want to promote and teach these skills in their communities,” said Lynn Zettler, past President of ICF Midwest Regional Advisory Council.

The International Coach Federation (ICF) is announcing that it is hosting the ICF Midwest Regional Conference and offering two projects targeted to the Indianapolis community this summer. The projects are branded “Community Crossroads” and include The Promise Zone Project and Business Outreach Project.

ICF’s Promise Zone Project will offer three one-on-one coaching sessions to volunteers of several non-profits in Indianapolis who are working toward a common goal. ICF will be working with local leaders affiliated with The Promise Zone Project in Indianapolis to enlist the participants for the program. “Promise Zones” are high poverty communities where the federal government partners with local leaders to increase economic activity, improve educational opportunities, reduce crime, and address other priorities identified by the community. Coaching sessions will begin in May and conclude at ICF’s Midwest Conference taking place in Indianapolis June 23-25, 2016.

ICF’s Business Outreach Project will offer a three-hour professional workshop to owners, leaders, managers and supervisors at Indianapolis businesses of all types. Conducted by Jane Creswell, MCC, the workshop is titled “Coaching for Organizational Effectiveness” and covers topics including how coaching accelerates employee performance, why coaching works in professional settings, and coaching vs. managing. The workshop will be held during ICF’s Midwest Conference, 1-4pm June 23, 2016 and is limited to the first 200 registrants. Individuals who would like to participate can register at the ICF Midwest Conference website: http://icf-midwest.com under the Conference 2016 tab.

Professional coaching offers fresh perspectives on personal challenges, enhanced decision-making skills, greater interpersonal effectiveness, and increased confidence. Those who undertake coaching can expect improvement in productivity, greater satisfaction with life and work, and the attainment of relevant goals.

“Knowing how coaching benefits individuals and businesses of all kinds, our coaches want to promote and teach these skills in their communities,” said Lynn Zettler, past President of ICF Midwest Regional Advisory Council. "We believe that focusing on leaders within the business, government, non-profit and corporate sectors will create the greatest impact for the entire community and accelerate growth for everyone. We are delighted to be able to offer The Promise Zone and Business Outreach projects to the greater Indianapolis community.”

The ICF Midwest Regional Conference, which is sponsoring these projects, is a premier coaching event serving coaches and members of allied professions from across the Midwest region. This year’s event features keynote addresses by New York Times Bestselling author, Marshall Goldsmith, as well as a pre-conference session with Judith Glaser, author of the groundbreaking, Conversational Intelligence. With a host of exhibitors and the chance to earn up to 18.5 CCEUs, the 5th ICF Midwest Regional Conference promises to deliver something for everyone.
