The 10 Principles of Attraction
This week I will be attending the 10th Annual International Coach Federation (ICF) conference www.coachfederation.org in San Jose, CA.
I look forward to sharpening my skills as a Master Coach and connecting with some of my amazing colleagues. This will be a special conference as it commemorates our tenth anniversary as an organization and the coaching profession.
In 1996, I attended the very first ICF conference in Houston. At that time coaching was barely in its infancy. We had 250 attendees from all over the world. I remember being blown away by the level of professionalism and integrity among the coaches that I met. I knew that, indeed, I was joining ranks with some incredible people that were going to make a deep impact on the world.
Ten years later, most of those 250 coaches are still involved in the field of coaching and with the ICF, many of them in leadership roles. This year the conference expects over 1,700 attendees.
I have seen a lot of changes in the coaching profession throughout these ten years, some of them positive, some of them not. I suppose when an industry grows as quickly as the coaching industry has, theres bound to be some opportunities for improvement. As a tenured coach, I feel most passionately about the importance of professional training and credentialing by an objective non-partisan organization.
As a Master Certified Coach*, and in alignment with my commitment to excellence, I am looking forward to continuing to hone my skills, nurturing friendships and having a good time at the conference. Most importantly, I look forward to applying what I have learned to be the best coach that I can be, for you deserve nothing less!
