Welcome to April!
The ICF North Texas Chapter is gearing up for our biggest event of the year.
Our May 14 Prism event recognizes, honors, celebrates, and learns from organizations that have embraced coaching as an integral part of their leadership strategy. It's an excellent opportunity to hear about best practices for organizational coaching, to connect with other coaches, and to develop coaching skills.
Under the leadership of Debjani Biswas (Prism Chair) and Neil Phillips (Prism vice chair), the Prism team reviewed last year’s post event survey results. We learned that participants highly valued the showcase of best practices—so you can look forward to hearing from this year’s finalists.
In addition, the Committee is bringing in nationally recognized author, speaker and executive coach, Joel Garfinkle.
