Taming Your Gremlins®: A Surprisingly Simply Method for Getting Out of Your Own Way
With Rick Carson
Meeting Details and Registration Information Coming Soon!
We’ve all experienced the loudness of our inner critic and so have our clients. The monster in our minds—that Rick Carson calls our ‘Gremlins’—can be destructive and create feelings of shame, low self-esteem, fear and depression. To support our clients, we must learn to tame our own Gremlins, so we can help our clients tame theirs.
Left to do its own thing, our Gremlin can destroy our health, foul up our relationships, ruin our disposition, dampen our creativity, hamper our productivity, drive us into low-down funks, and wind us up into fits of anxiety. With Rick, we can learn methods of calming our minds and gaining freedom from self-defeating beliefs. We will have a fun and interactive 60 minutes with Rick Carson, founder of the Gremlin-Taming® Institute.
Celebrate Coaching 2020
Our third Celebrate Coaching event on September 11 was our most successful yet when it came to engaging our broader community in the conversation about professional coaching. More than 70 percent of the audience were guests and clients of our members and they reported getting a great deal of personal value from our time together.
President-elect and Chair of this year’s event, Kathleen Klaviter, noted how each year the members look forward to this event to showcase the effectiveness of integrating professional coaching and leadership development to clients and potential clients. We were thrilled to see the high level of engagement during the event and excellent ratings received.
We heard from experts who truly understand how coaching impacts an organization, including Renee Robertson of ICF Global and Sandy Mitsch, who is one of the top Dare to Lead (Brené Brown) presenters and an MCC.
And we received very positive feedback from our attendees. Here are just a few of the comments they shared:
- “It was great to learn about the brand-new ICF focus on coaching inside organizations.”
- “I left challenged to be a more courageous leader and a better person.”
- “The program was outstanding. Sandy’s great stories made the concepts come alive.”
- “Loved how we were able to apply it to ourselves and consider how we can use it with clients.”

We appreciate all you did to make Celebrate Coaching 2020 such an engaging event and we hope it was valuable for you and your guests.
Wrapping Up Coaching Experience 2020
Many of you have participated and we have shared a lot about our volunteer efforts to support the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) and their leadership initiative. We have provided a several-month engagement that included group and one-on-one coaching, plus skills workshops, to teach NTFB leaders how to coach their teams. This is an integral part of their offering this year, which also introduces them to Integrating Strengths and a new 4x4 model for their now quarterly reviews. We will be excited to see how their focus on building a coaching culture continues to expand.
ICF North Texas Director of Alliances, Susan Daniel (leader of this effort for NTFB) and her team are analyzing results from the comprehensive coaching opportunities and determining how we can help this important organization to keep developing their vision of a true coaching culture. Early reports already validate that as NTFB leaders learn about themselves and what may be holding them back, they are finding more way to help others be their true selves and perform their best.
We look forward to sharing more about our results in our next newsletter. In the meantime, we continue to be extremely thankful for this partnership and fantastic support from so many of ICF North Texas coaches.
