Coaching SIG: Authentic Use of "Who"?

  • 06 May 2014
  • 5:40 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Location: Bethesda Regional Library, 7400 Arlington Rd. Bethesda, MD 20814.

The Coaching CoP is Sponsored by the American Society for Training & Development (ASTD) & Chesapeake Bay Organization Development Network (CBODN) 

Topic: Authentic Use of "Who"?

Join us for the May SIG meeting and participate in a conversation of discovery with your fellow coaches: "What does it mean to 'use' ourselves?" and "How can we 'use' ourselves to best serve those we coach?" We will be exploring what we believe and then learning from one another in the process. Our facilitator, David Grau, will guide the conversation as we all become co-
learners through a process of self-reflection and group exploration. This May meeting will be our last one before our summer recess so plan to join your colleagues to 'dance in the moment' of self discovery.

Presenter: David Grau

You do not need to be a coach to attend our meetings or be on our mailing list. Our attendance is comprised of many coaches - some new and some seasoned. We have people attending who want to learn about the different coaching programs, some currently in coaching programs, and those who are starting or just finishing programs or certification. We also have trainers, and consultants, or others in different fields who are curious about coaching or becoming a coach, along with some who teach in coaching programs. We have members coming from a range of fields including IT, law, economics, health care, advertising, communications, banking, and international organizations. We enjoy the mix of perspectives, ages, and world experience.
