President’s Message – March 2015
If you were one of the fortunate people who were able to attend our February meeting, you’ll already know what a fabulous meeting it was!
For those of you who didn’t have the chance to attend, you missed a great opportunity. Cynthia Loy and David Darst – team Darst – facilitated a highly interactive and informative session on Relationships – From the Bedroom to the Boardroom.
Following some information sharing, the crowd of participants self-selected where to stand within a quadrant marked on the floor. We were able to select from the matrix of Gottman’s 4 Horsemen – blame, stonewalling, contempt, or defensiveness – to explore our style with others in “our box”.
We next selected a person in another quadrant to more deeply explore a style different than our own. Wow…what great learning! Thank you Cynthia and David.
Now, we are looking forward to our March 12th event where our panel of experts will help you identify proven methods to start or grow your coaching business.
Even if you already have a successful coaching business, you will walk away from this session with proven and practical ideas for expanding and growing your client base and therefore…your revenues!
Maggie Stern, President, ICF-OC 2015
