A Look at Coaching in Action: Third Annual Fish Bowl
ICF Washington State is delighted to announce that the 3rd annual Fishbowl Coaching event will showcase MCC coaching. We're thrilled that 7 of our 18 MCC members have agreed to serve as coaches and on the expert panel this year. The Fish Bowl Coaching event, held in honor of International Coaching Week, is May 20th, at the Red Lion Hotel Bellevue, 11211 Main St, Bellevue, WA 98004. The evening begins at 5:00 PM for networking and refreshments. The Fish Bowl Coaching will begin about 6:00 PM. Be sure to register at www.icfwashingtonstate.com in advance.
As is traditional, volunteer clients will be randomly drawn from the fishbowl to work with the coaches in a 15-20 minute session. Following the coaching, the panel will provide feedback regarding the coach's unique style and application of the Core Coaching Competencies, and a couple of comments will be accepted from the audience. We'll have the opportunity to observe three separate demonstrations of MCC coaching.
It is our hope that members find this experience of coaching excellence inspiring and educational. This is a great event for introducing coaching to the curiousundefinedbe sure to have non-member guests register on the website as well.
