Thank You to Our Members

November is the month where we make a special point of expressing gratitude, so I wanted to take a few moments to say thank you to all our members who have volunteered to support the Community Outreach Committee with our programs this year.

Our Gift of Coaching program, where we provide ongoing coaching to individuals from local organizations, kicked off in July. We had 14 members volunteer to participate in the program, and coaching is still going. We are excited that we were able to support three organizations – PENCIL, which coordinates community partnerships with the Metro Nashville Public Schools; the Middle Tennessee chapter of 100 Black Men, which provides resources to further the academic and social development of black male students in Nashville and surrounding Middle Tennessee; and Hands On Nashville, which connects thousands of volunteers to more than 300 service projects each month.

The Get Clear with Coaching program was a one-week event when we offered one-time pro bono coaching sessions to members of our community. Nearly 25 coaches volunteered and offered nearly 100 hours of coaching. We reached out to about 40 organizations across the state of Tennessee including local chapters of the Society for Human Resource Management, chambers of commerce, and various professional associations.

Both of these programs have helped raise awareness of the coaching profession, and we look forward to offering them again with even greater impact next year.

Thank you to all our coaches who supported these efforts.
