I want to extend a big welcome to those of you who are new to our chapter. We’re glad you’re here!
Likewise, I want to say to those of you who have been a part of this community for a while that we value you and are very glad you’re here!
Our goal is to have a thriving, engaged coaching community right here in Indiana. A community that you can turn to for trusted resources, guidance, networking, friendship, collaboration, continuing education, and more.
In fact, behind the scenes we’re working hard to bring you a variety of programs and events that will meet your needs. How are we doing? Have you enjoyed the chapter programming so far this year? What suggestions do you have for the chapter leaders? I’d love to hear your ideas. Just email me and let me know. I’m always here for you.
Speaking of programming and events, we’ve got a fabulous May program set up that will provide 2.0 Core Competency CCEUs and will bring you some new coaching tools. We’re very excited to have Jim Smith, The Executive Happiness Coach®, joining us next week – Tuesday, May 12. All the details are here.
Make sure you register and join us. It’s going to be highly experiential and fun!
Plus, we’re serving a full breakfast from Sahm’s Catering. This is not just a continental breakfast. Oh no, we’re having breakfast quiche, Sahm’s famous coffeecake, juice, coffee, and more.
Don’t miss out on this wonderful program brought to you by our hardworking and talented Programming Committee. We want YOU there.
Another way we’re expanding our programming is to offer a monthly online learning experience. Throughout this year I’ll be leading monthly virtual workshops that are held live over the internet (with slides and a workbook) with the focus on building your successful coaching practice.
So check out our Business Development Series for Coaches virtual program and get registered. You will learn so much, see how to apply the information to your own business plans, and be working on your business foundation one step at a time.
Oh, and we’re also planning some evening social events and a coaches’ book club. So stay tuned for more information coming soon!
Stay connected. Be an active part of this community. And definitely plan to attend chapter events this year.
I can’t wait to see you again or meet you for the first time!
