    Bring your lunch, curiosity, and coach's presence! We're a dynamic and diverse group of professional coaches in our ICF NYC community. Each of us comes from a different cultural background with unique gifts to contribute, and we want to offer a safe and supportive space to share our insights and perspectives to learn from each other while having fun.

    In these meetings, we'll share our cross-cultural experiences with a loose structure with openness for interesting dialogues to emerge. Each meeting will have one topic we'll center our discussion around, and the group will decide on the topic we want to focus on in the following meeting. This is also a great place for you to practice active listening and broaden your horizons.

    Please join as our vision for the Virtual Lunchtime CoachCafe meetings is to get to know each other on a deeper level through meaningful dialogues that enriches us. The Zoom link will be sent via email after you register.

    The most important thing we bring to coaching is ourselves. Far beyond techniques and tools, it’s our coaching presence that enables the intuition, wisdom, trust and creativity required for the deepest transformations to take place in our clients.  

    Come join Stephanie Kleine-Ahlbrandt and Karen Bummele for Morning CoachCafe to inquire, share, and reflect upon our coaching presence. We will explore questions such as: How can we show up as our best selves for ourselves and our clients? How can being deeply connected with our own wisdom help us hear what is emerging for our clients? What practices and techniques help us to stay present during the coaching process and dance in the moment with our clients? We will be discussing and exploring a variety of mindfulness and presence-based techniques and EQ skills backed by neuroscience and how we can support one another in our coaching journeys.

    We normally meet in the Financial District at a co-working space, but have moved all of our in-person events virtually for at least the months of April and May. This is a great opportunity for you to experience different groups from the comfort of your home and still be part of our ICF NYC community. The Zoom link will be sent via email after you register.

    As professional coaches, no matter which types of coaching we offer, it’s essential to possess powerful questions and leadership insights to guide our clients to embrace change, create new visions, and find inspiration.

    Come join Chris and Eileen for Virtual Lunchtime CoachCafe as we offer a forum for our members to discuss Leadership topics. Topics may include leading during times of change, leading others with a new vision, or coaching insights for various levels of leadership. Participants will have an opportunity to contribute cases for discussion.

    We have moved all of our in-person events virtually for now. Once we go back to meeting in-person, we will meet in the private residence in UWS. This is a great opportunity for you to experience different groups from the comfort of your home, and continue to be part of our ICF NYC community. The Zoom link will be sent via email after you register.

    Join ICF NYC for its December Breakfast and a Book Club meeting to kick off your week with a mental boost! This month we delve into Brené Brown’s Dare to Lead.

    About The Book

    Title: Dare to Lead

    Authors: Brené Brown

    Publication Date: 2018

    Description: Leadership is not about titles, status, and wielding power. A leader is anyone who takes responsibility for recognizing the potential in people and ideas, and has the courage to develop that potential.

    When we dare to lead, we don’t pretend to have the right answers; we stay curious and ask the right questions. We don’t see power as finite and hoard it; we know that power becomes infinite when we share it with others. We don’t avoid difficult conversations and situations; we lean into vulnerability when it’s necessary to do good work.

    But daring leadership in a culture defined by scarcity, fear, and uncertainty requires skill-building around traits that are deeply and uniquely human. The irony is that we’re choosing not to invest in developing the hearts and minds of leaders at the exact same time as we’re scrambling to figure out what we have to offer that machines and AI can’t do better and faster. What can we do better? Empathy, connection, and courage, to start.

    Four-time #1 New York Times bestselling author Brené Brown has spent the past two decades studying the emotions and experiences that give meaning to our lives, and the past seven years working with transformative leaders and teams spanning the globe. She found that leaders in organizations ranging from small entrepreneurial startups and family-owned businesses to nonprofits, civic organizations, and Fortune 50 companies all ask the same question: 

    How do you cultivate braver, more daring leaders, and how do you embed the value of courage in your culture? 

    In this new book, Brown uses research, stories, and examples to answer these questions in the no-BSstyle that millions of readers have come to expect and love.

    Brown writes, “One of the most important findings of my career is that daring leadership is a collection of four skill sets that are 100 percent teachable, observable, and measurable. It’s learning and unlearning that requires brave work, tough conversations, and showing up with your whole heart. Easy? No. Because choosing courage over comfort is not always our default. Worth it? Always. We want to be brave with our lives and our work. It’s why we’re here.”

    Whether you’ve read Daring Greatly and Rising Strong or you’re new to Brené Brown’s work, this book is for anyone who wants to step up and into brave leadership.

    Join ICF NYC for its January Breakfast and a Book Club meeting to kick off your week with a mental boost! This month we delve into Mary Beth O’Neill’s Executive Coaching with Backbone and Heart.  

    Summary Details

    When: January 11, 2021, 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

    Facilitator:  Lora Lebo, MHRM, PCC, SPHR, SHRM-SCP

    About The Book

    Title: Executive Coaching with Backbone and Heart

    Authors: Mary Beth O’Neill

    Publication Date: 2000, second edition 2007

    Description: Coaching high-powered executives requires something extra. Executive coaches must become partners whose emotional investment in business outcomes equals that of their clients. They must have the strength and courage to face an organizational leader in a time of crisis and speak the unvarnished truth. They must be a force to be reckoned with. They have to have backbone and heart.

    When it was first published in 2000, Mary Beth O'Neill's book Executive Coaching with Backbone and Heart helped to define the field of coaching at the senior and executive level. This second edition of O'Neill's groundbreaking book shares the secrets of O'Neill's success and details the techniques she's developed and refined over the course of her exceptional career. This edition has been thoroughly revised and expanded to include

    • Three Key Factors methodology for setting up client goals and the measures for those goals

    • Information about how to involve the client's boss in the coaching contract

    • More extensive material on live action coaching

    • Commentary on the use of assessment tools and instruments

    • A method to work with clients on the systemic patterns they want to change

    • An entirely new chapter devoted solely?to calculating the ROI of coaching work with the client

    • And more illustrative stories

    O'Neill teaches coaches how to deal with clients in terms of the "force fields" they create and react to, that is, the political and emotional climates within organizations that can ensnare both executive and coach and make for faulty decision making. O'Neill reinforces her observations on coach self-management and her systems perspective with a sound four-phase methodology for implementing both, a methodology that covers contracting, planning, live action intervening, and debriefing.

    Executive Coaching with Backbone and Heart is written for anyone, no matter what their discipline or background, who is interested in helping leaders work through their dilemmas so they can transform their learning directly into results for their organizations.

    Summary Details

    When: February 8, 2021, 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

    Facilitator:  Lora Lebo, MHRM, PCC, SPHR, SHRM-SCP

    Format:  Virtual - Zoom meeting format, cameras enabled

    CCEUs: 1 TBD

    About The Book

    Title: How to Be an Antiracist

    Author: Ibram X. Kendi

    Publication Date: 2019

    Description: Antiracism is a transformative concept that reorients and reenergizes the conversation about racism—and, even more fundamentally, points us toward liberating new ways of thinking about ourselves and each other. At its core, racism is a powerful system that creates false hierarchies of human value; its warped logic extends beyond race, from the way we regard people of different ethnicities or skin colors to the way we treat people of different sexes, gender identities, and body types. Racism intersects with class and culture and geography and even changes the way we see and value ourselves. In How to Be an Antiracist, Kendi takes readers through a widening circle of antiracist ideas—from the most basic concepts to visionary possibilities—that will help readers see all forms of racism clearly, understand their poisonous consequences, and work to oppose them in our systems and in ourselves.

    Kendi weaves an electrifying combination of ethics, history, law, and science with his own personal story of awakening to antiracism. This is an essential work for anyone who wants to go beyond the awareness of racism to the next step: contributing to the formation of a just and equitable society.

    “Ibram X. Kendi’s new book, How to Be an Antiracist, couldn’t come at a better time. . . . Kendi has gifted us with a book that is not only an essential instruction manual but also a memoir of the author’s own path from anti-black racism to anti-white racism and, finally, to antiracism. . . .  How to Be an Antiracist gives us a clear and compelling way to approach, as Kendi puts it in his introduction, ‘the basic struggle we’re all in, the struggle to be fully human and to see that others are fully human.’ ”—NPR

    About The Book

    Title: The HeART of Laser-Focused Coaching

    Author: Marion Franklin

    Publication Date: 2019

    Description: What would it mean for your coaching if you got right to the heart of the matter — every time?

    You can. Learn rarely taught tips and concepts that will immediately elevate your coaching while avoiding the common pitfalls.

    Marion Franklin, the Coach’s Coach, has been training and mentoring coaches for more than 20 years. Every student she has mentored or taught who sought ACC, PCC, or MCC has gotten their credential using the material in this book designed for all levels of coaches. No matter where you are in your coaching journey, this book has something for you.

    This book is different because it:

    • Includes brilliant tools for beginner-to-seasoned coaches

    • Offers advanced techniques for developing powerful questions without any lists

    • Provides principles of human behavior that help you quickly identify what’s really going on

    • Contains the 25 Themes that underlie every coaching situation and make coaching and questioning much simpler

    • Shares a step-by-step, easy to follow, way to create a shift in perspective

    • Presents 17 strategies that clients unknowingly use that actually work against, not for them

    Begin using even one or two of the concepts and principles in this book and notice your coaching immediately elevate to a new level. Your clients will notice the difference!

    You will experience this innovative approach to masterful coaching with two full laser-coaching sessions with commentary — much like eavesdropping in on the mind of a master coach.

    Marion shares unprecedented concepts that will help new coaches and even the most experienced coaches gain new insights and ideas, including a deeper understanding of what they already know.

    • Automatically improve your coaching by applying one rarely known principle.

    • Never feel stuck around what question to ask.

    • Feel more confident by quickly identifying what’s really going on.

    • Know exactly what to listen for in every conversation.

    • Discover a simple “2 inquiry” approach that instantly enables you to deepen your curiosity.

    This book will not only boost your confidence and mastery as a coach, it will enable you to produce sustained results for your clients. I designed this book to not only show you what laser-focused coaching looks, sounds, and feels like, but to show you HOW TO coach for permanent, life-altering change.

    When using the Laser-Focused approach, you’ll be able to:

    • avoid getting seduced by the story

    • ask questions that get right to the heart of the matter

    • have the client do all of the summary

    • know how to create the shift and what to do afterwards

    • recognize the client’s underlying pattern and know how to address it and so much more

    New and experienced coaches alike will benefit greatly from the detailed strategies and wisdom shared from Marion’s years of experience.

    About The Book

    Title: Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less

    Author: Greg McKeown

    Publication Date: 2014

    Description: Have you ever:

    • found yourself stretched too thin?

    • simultaneously felt overworked and underutilized?

    • felt busy but not productive?

    • felt like your time is constantly being hijacked by other people’s agendas?

    If you answered yes to any of these, the way out is the Way of the Essentialist

    Essentialism is more than a time-management strategy or a productivity technique. It is a systematic discipline for discerning what is absolutely essential, then eliminating everything that is not, so we can make the highest possible contribution toward the things that really matter.

    By forcing us to apply more selective criteria for what is Essential, the disciplined pursuit of less empowers us to reclaim control of our own choices about where to spend our precious time and energy—instead of giving others the implicit permission to choose for us.

    Essentialism is not one more thing—it’s a whole new way of doing everything. It’s about doing less, but better, in every area of our lives. Essentialism is a movement whose time has come.

    “A timely, essential read for anyone who feels overcommitted, overloaded, or overworked.”—Adam Grant

    About The Book

    Title: Narrative Coaching

    Author: David Drake

    Publication Date: 2018

    Description: This is a rare book; it is grounded in both a deep academic rigor and a deep personal understanding of how people change. It is a treasure chest of information and insights based in over twenty years of experience. It will enable you to get to the crux of people’s issues in less time and help them make significant shifts in the moment. This book is an indispensable resource for anyone who works with people’s stories and wants to develop themselves so they have more impact.

    The tools and models are presented in simple and clear language. However, there is a depth here that offers a limitless guide for your learning. Narrative Coaching is timely because it works at the level of identities, addresses the collective narratives that shape our stories, and expands the roles and modalities we can use to bring about transformational change with individuals and teams.

    What is new in this edition:

    • It goes deeper into attachment theory and applied mindfulness

    • It offers design thinking as a framework for adult development

    • It shows how change is a naturally human and integrative process

    • It offers more examples and cases, e.g., how to coach without goals

    This book will both challenge you and inspire you to think in new ways about what is possible in your life and in your practice.

    About The Book

    Title: The Splendid and the Vile

    Author: Erik Larson

    Publication Date: 2020

    Description: On Winston Churchill’s first day as prime minister, Adolf Hitler invaded Holland and Belgium. Poland and Czechoslovakia had already fallen, and the Dunkirk evacuation was just two weeks away. For the next twelve months, Hitler would wage a relentless bombing campaign, killing 45,000 Britons. It was up to Churchill to hold his country together and persuade President Franklin Roosevelt that Britain was a worthy ally—and willing to fight to the end.

    In The Splendid and the Vile, Erik Larson shows, in cinematic detail, how Churchill taught the British people “the art of being fearless.” It is a story of political brinkmanship, but it’s also an intimate domestic drama, set against the backdrop of Churchill’s prime-ministerial country home, Chequers; his wartime retreat, Ditchley, where he and his entourage go when the moon is brightest and the bombing threat is highest; and of course 10 Downing Street in London. Drawing on diaries, original archival documents, and once-secret intelligence reports—some released only recently—Larson provides a new lens on London’s darkest year through the day-to-day experience of Churchill and his family: his wife, Clementine; their youngest daughter, Mary, who chafes against her parents’ wartime protectiveness; their son, Randolph, and his beautiful, unhappy wife, Pamela; Pamela’s illicit lover, a dashing American emissary; and the advisers in Churchill’s “Secret Circle,” to whom he turns in the hardest moments.

    The Splendid and the Vile takes readers out of today’s political dysfunction and back to a time of true leadership, when, in the face of unrelenting horror, Churchill’s eloquence, courage, and perseverance bound a country, and a family, together.

    Churchill’s lessons of resilience and his style of steady-handed leadership are essential to the state of mind of American readers.”—Vanity Fair
