    Come join us for an evening of connection, support, and fun. As coaches and entrepreneurs, it can feel isolating working on our own sometimes. Think of our monthly meeting as the go-to place to tap into the power of the group for growing our coaching businesses.

    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 ICF NYC Breakfast and Book Club

    Meetings will be held consistently on the second Monday of each month at 8 AM New York time (except where may be otherwise indicated).  Attendance at every meeting is not necessary.  You may participate based upon your preference for the book.  The intended purpose of this offering is to broaden and deepen our knowledge of current practices in the coaching profession and in the business world.

    Please register early!  If registration is low, or non-existent, for any specific book, we will revisit the selection and float a poll to the membership to select a replacement book.  We therefore encourage participants to register early for meetings so that we may assess interest at an early stage.

    Meeting Guidelines:

    • Please be sure to read at least portions of the book so that meaning, intent and application may be discussed with depth.  

    • As with any virtual call, please be prepared to have your video and audio on, with limited distraction.  Turn off all notifications.

    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.

    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.

    How fluent are you in the updated core competencies? Effective January 2021, updated core competency model is in place. Join Carrie Abner, ICF’s Vice President for Credentials and Standards to review the updated model and get your questions answered.

    Summary Details

    When: February 10, 2021, 12:00 PM - 1:15 PM

    Presenter:  Carrie Abner

    Format:  Virtual - Zoom webinar format, cameras disabled

    CCEUs: 1.25 TBC

    About The Event

    With the start of the new year, and launch of the updated ICF Core Competency Model, ICF NYC wants to ensure our members are set up for success and feel well-grounded in the new competencies.  Our 2021 professional development programming will look to reinforce and highlight the updated core competencies. 

    The Core Competencies, as developed by ICF, provide a vital foundation for the coaching profession and support greater understanding about the skills and approaches used within today’s coaching profession as defined by ICF. As part of a growth mindset, ICF revisits the model every few years to validate the core competency model against empirical evidence as the coaching field advances and evolves. Following a 24-month review that involved 1,300 coaches from around the globe and both within and external to ICF, an updated competency model has been adopted that provides a simpler, more streamlined structure and integrates consistent, clear language. Questions to be addressed during the learning event include, but are not limited to: 

    • What limitations were identified with the previous set of core competencies?

    • What was discarded and why? 

    • What was missing, and therefore added, and why?

    • What research was brought into the updates and how did the consensus/expert input model that was followed to inform the updated core competency model? 

    This event is a kick-off to acknowledge and celebrate the launch of the updated model.  The event provides an opportunity to familiarize yourself with the changes, to ask any questions that you may have, and to reflect on the new model as it relates to your own coaching practice.

    Join us on March 1, 2021 for the Third Annual ICF NYC and NYU Human Capital Management Organizational Coaching Event.  This year's theme looks at trends in the coaching profession and how practitioners can evolve to meet needs.

    This event will look at emerging trends and shifts within the coaching industry to ask the questions: (1) What changes (ongoing and anticipated) within the industry do coaches need to have on their radar? (2) What actions should coaches be thinking about or taking to ensure they and their coaching practice are best positioned for success into the future?

    Speakers: Coming Soon! 

    Format:  Virtual, Zoom Platform

    CCEUs:2 CCEU TBC

    Who is this event for: Coaches, coaching students, HR and Talent Professionals

    The Event

    Learning Objectives:

    • To understand business drivers influencing the future of the coaching profession

    • To explore key business needs and procurement/hiring considerations determining who, how and what for, firms are looking at coaches

    • To highlight how the coach training and continual education market is responding

    • To identify what actions coaches should be considering to ensure their relevance in an evolving marketplace and how to stand out

    Context: 

    COVID-19 supercharged shifts in company operations, investment decisions, and ways of working over the last year, but the coaching industry -- business and procurement models, organization expectations, coach selection and credentials – had been evolving long beforehand as the profession continued to grow and mature.  The broader adoption of coaching as a standard professional development tool, the entrance of new players, the role of technology, and the professionalization of the industry are among factors driving industry shifts which in turn have implications for how coaches position themselves to stand out within the market and anticipate growth opportunities.

    The Discussion: 

    The event is catered towards existing and prospective coaches in addition to those in the talent and human resource communities.  Two consecutive facilitated dialogues will explore key drivers, client needs and expectations, and coach capabilities and positioning. 

    The first dialogue will focus on key drivers in the marketplace.  In conversation with representatives from organizations hiring coaches and coaching companies delivering services, the first conversation will focus on shifting needs, procurement models, market competition, coach requirements, and factors related to the demand and supply of coaches.  

    The second dialogue will focus on educational and training implications for coaches in response to business drivers.  Areas of discussion will include reskilling, continuing education and other formal advanced education options as well as what ICF is doing as far as coach training and meeting the needs of the marketplace.

    Summary Details

    When: March 8, 2021, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (Note this month’s time change from the typical schedule)

    Facilitator:  Lora Lebo, MHRM, PCC, SPHR, SHRM-SCP  and special guest, author Marion Franklin, MCC

    Format:  Virtual - Zoom meeting format, cameras enabled

    CCEUs: 1 TBD

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Come join us for an evening of connection, support, and fun. As coaches and entrepreneurs, it can feel isolating working on our own sometimes. Think of our monthly meeting as the go-to place to tap into the power of the group for growing our coaching businesses.

    In our Mastermind-like format, each participant receives time to be supported and be accountable for their committed actions. We’re a community of compassionate and diverse coaches here to share ideas, resources, and insights. And of course, new participants are welcome!

    We usually meet at a co-working space in Manhattan but have moved all of our in-person events virtually for now. 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.

    Summary Details

    When: April 12, 2021, 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM

    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 ICF NYC Breakfast and Book Club

    Meetings will be held consistently on the second Monday of each month at 8 AM New York time (except where may be otherwise indicated).  Attendance at every meeting is not necessary.  You may participate based upon your preference for the book.  The intended purpose of this offering is to broaden and deepen our knowledge of current practices in the coaching profession and in the business world.

    Please register early!  If registration is low, or non-existent, for any specific book, we will revisit the selection and float a poll to the membership to select a replacement book.  We therefore encourage participants to register early for meetings so that we may assess interest at an early stage.

    Meeting Guidelines:

    • Please be sure to read at least portions of the book so that meaning, intent and application may be discussed with depth.  

    • As with any virtual call, please be prepared to have your video and audio on, with limited distraction.  Turn off all notifications.  

    • Come in your pajamas! We don’t care about how you look, only the intellectual contribution you bring.

    Join ICF NYC for its May Breakfast and a Book Club meeting to kick off your week with a mental boost! This month we delve into David Drake’s Narrative Coaching.

    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.
