HomePresident's Message

Dear Colleagues:


Community is one of our chapter’s core values. Community can encompass many aspects of identifying with a group. In the broadest sense, community is a group of people who interact socially. These people may share mutual values and goals and interests. They may have a collective identity of sorts and hold something in common. This common ground, in turn, generates positive energy, a sense of support for each other. Consider the African proverb: “If you want to go quickly, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” What does Community mean to you?






The purpose of life is to discover your gift. The work of life is to develop it.
The meaning of life is to give your gift away. – David Viscott


Our ICF North Texas chapter is a community of passionate, gifted professionals representing a broad range of knowledge, skills and wisdom across sectors, disciplines and generations. What a mother lode of gifts. What is your gift to share?


Together we define and create this community of coaches. I welcome you to reach out to me at president@icf-nt.com with the ways you might step up and share your gift with us all and support the chapter.


In collaboration and good spirit.



Sincerely,


Catherine

Welcome to September

 

The major summer heat is behind us and I am really looking forward to autumn. Over the summer months, your board team members have been very busy with upcoming events.

 

Our Laser Coaching event, celebrating Coaching Week, is with the Girls Scouts on September 7 during their regional mangers meeting. Steve Coxsey has been working on ensuring that this a great experience for both the Girl Scouts and the volunteer coaches. It is a great time for ICF-certified coaches to give the experience of coaching to those who have never received it before. If you are interested in participating at the event on September 7, please contact Steve Coxsey.

 

The September program features our very own Valerie Sokolosky on Personal Branding. This topic is Valerie’s niche and she is going to share her wisdom from ten years of experience in Fortune 500 organizations on what it takes to own your personal brand. You can thank Laurel Rolls for scheduling this program as well as all the other great programs this year.

 

The Prism Symposium is in the final planning stages. Pam Van Dyke and the Prism committee are quickly filling in all the gaps for the October 6 event. We are looking for a few more volunteers to assist on the day of the event and I am personally asking you to please consider it.

 

We need the following volunteers in order to provide a great experience for the attendees and make the Prism Symposium a success:

 

·         Registration Table Coordinator (1 or 2): Register attendees on the day of the event and create nametags prior to the event.

·         Sponsor Coordination: Sponsors set-up and main contact.  Also, assist with some of the table decorations.

·         Photographer: Take photos throughout the day.

·         Greeters/Guides (3 to 4): Direct attendees to the various activities during the day.

 

Please contact our Prism board chair, Pam Van Dyke (817-726-9948) or me (469-994-9326) if you would like to volunteer.

  

The American Airlines C.R. Smith museum is closing the doors to the general public for the day. We will have the entire museum to ourselves and all attendees will be free to look around at their leisure. We are also hoping to have some American Airlines team members in the museum to share some of the history with attendees.
