ABOUT THE WEBINAR: The Impact of a Coaching Culture on Change Initiatives | Tuesday, June 25, 2019 | 12:00pm CST | Open only to Southeast Region ICF Chapter Members.

Presented by: Sara Smith, MCC, CPCC

Coaches who work in organizations often ask for the numbers to prove the value of coaching. What they should also ask is, “how do you help a client get there?” Sara will be answering those questions and guiding participants in how to engage clients (and potential clients) in these important questions. 

Sara will be presenting a summary of the 2018 ICF/HCI (Human Capital Institute) study results for executives. The presentation you will hear is designed to help ICF members sell the value of coaching to clients and HR organizations. This presentation, the speaker notes and the study itself give an ICF coach what they need to deliver a compelling business case to for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. This is a tool to help ICF coaches differentiate themselves from those who call themselves coaches.
