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 email@example.com with the ways you might step up and share your gift with us all and support the chapter.
In collaboration and good spirit.
