Intersections: Uniting the Talent, Mental Health and Coaching Communities

  • May 01, 2019
  • 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • LinkedIn Offices Empire State Building New York, NY


Join us to learn more about our respective intersections and get more people to experience our work.

The 20th Annual International Coaching Week is just around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited!

It will be an incredible opportunity to celebrate the work of our chapter’s coaches, create new opportunities for collaboration and much more.

Our Intersections event will bring together Talent, Mental Health and Coaching professionals to create new opportunities for learning and collaboration. Dedicated ICW Coach Cafes will support local connections, and new Pro Bono Coaching opportunities will let a broad pool of people experience first-hand the value of coaching.

Intersections: Uniting the Talent, Mental Health and Coaching Communities - May 1st at 6:00PM 

Registration Deadline: April 28, 2019. No exceptions possible due to Empire State Building security requirements.

This exciting panel discussion brings together the expertise and knowledge of coaches, mental health professionals and talent organization leaders. After a broader introduction on coaching application and its benefits, participants will have the choice of following one of two tracks:

      The Mental Health Track will dive more deeply into the ways coaching and therapy can complement one another in practice. Viewing coaching and therapy as a collaboration, coach and therapist will gain insight into the unique aspects of the two professions, understand how they can supplement each other and create cross-referral networks. We’ll explore when it is appropriate to refer clients to either coaching or therapy as well as understand the regulatory landscape.

      The Organizational Track will help coaches and talent professionals gain insight into the value and best practices of various coaching models as well as demonstrate the proven impact of coaching on organizations. Coaches will get insights into the different models of coaching cultures and how they can better help organizations achieve business results. Talent professionals will have the occasion to preview different models of coaching cultures and best practices to inform their own coaching organizations. 

Networking will be supported by offering therapists and organizations one complimentary coaching session for themselves, their clients or a member of their company. Find all details under the Pro-Bono Coaching section and sign up by April 12th to take advantage of this opportunity!
