Special Interest Group (SIG) Meetings

The ICF Colorado offers Special Interest Group (or SIG) sessions before our featured monthly program.

Our SIG structure is designed as a progression to support members in building skills and business acumen and move to more advanced coaching topics as their experience deepens.

Special Interest Groups (SIGs): Attendance to the SIGs is included in your meeting registration.

All SIGs are conducted the hour before the monthly general meeting except for the Experienced Coaches Salon.

  • Business Development SIG
  • Credentialing & Core Competencies SIG
  • Leveraging a Growth Mindset SIG
  • Experienced Coaches Salon

Business Development Q&A SIG

This is an active group of ICF-CO members seeking to both give and receive mentoring in building a successful coaching business.

2018 Dates and Time TBA


Facilitated by:
Stephanie Wachman

Credentialing & Core Competencies SIG

2018 Dates: 4th Friday of each month
Time: 1:00 to 2:00pm MT
Location: Virtual Meetings via Zoom (Zoom link will be provided as the date draws nearer.)

This SIG supports coaches who are navigating the process of ICF Credentialing, with special focus on the key criteria that ICF uses – the Core Competencies! We will spend approximately two-thirds of our time focusing on the ICF Core Competencies, and one-third reporting our individual progress toward out next credential.

If you have been unable to attend and are interested in credentialing, please join us and we will catch you up, then move forward.  

You can contact Ralph through e-mail –, and he will add you to the e-mail list. 

Are you interested in working toward an ICF credential?  Would you like peer support and accountability?  If your answer is “yes,” we invite you to join our support group.  Beginning in January, the Core Competency SIG, led by Walt Hastings, will be expanded to include those interested in working toward a credential at any level.  This modified SIG will be facilitated by Walt Hastings, Carl Dierschow and Ralph Datema.  We will have our initial meeting at 6:00 p.m., preceding our January ICF meeting, on January 12, 2017. At this meeting, all present will have the opportunity to provide wisdom on how this group can best serve your needs.
