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
  • Experienced Coaches Salon

Credentialing & Core Competencies SIG

March 9, 2017

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!

To all who attended in February – Welcome. 
We will follow up on the gifts and requests from our last meeting and move forward with contracting specific next steps. 
If you are interested in barter coaching, let’s also talk about that.  
We will continue to communicate with you by e-mail.  We welcome your questions, comments, and suggestions and appreciate your responses.

If you were unable to attend in February and are interested in credentialing, please join us and we will catch you up, then move forward.   
You can contact Ralph through e-mail – ralphdatema@comcast.net, and he will add you to the e-mail list. 

The ICF Core Competencies side of the SIG will be examining the competency “Designing Actions.”

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.
