President's Report

Happy New Year!  At this time of year, we typically find time to refresh, renew, recommit, re-motivate and recharge.  With those recharged batteries, we also look forward to new opportunities and challenges and focus ourselves on setting goals for the year. As Dr. Seuss said, “Only you can control your future.”  

Coaching is an integral part of a thriving society and we strive for the ICF-TN chapter members to represent the highest quality of professional coaching in our community. To that end, your ICF-TN Board for 2019 has been busy working on your behalf to set goals for the chapter for 2019. (See sidebar). We are committed to the professional development of our members with a goal to engage you in promoting the coaching profession in our community. We invite you to be an active participant in the chapter by joining a committee, attending chapter meetings and networking with your fellow coaches to increase your acquaintance with other coaches, share experiences and potentially, share opportunities for professional and business development

Membership in ICF-TN is your gateway into a community where you can thrive as a professional coach. Many opportunities exist to become involved with ICF-TN, help shape our organization’s future, and give back to the coaching community. We invite you to take advantage of lifelong learning and professional development through outstanding programming, communities of practice and continuing coach education.

Contact the committee chair to find out how you can support the chapter while growing as a leader in the coaching profession. Let us hear from you through our social media sites and contact me with your thoughts and feedback via president@icftn.org.

icftn professional development committee  update

Nina Morel and Glenn Maul have accepted the role as co-chairs of our Professional Development Committee in 2019. Our goal is simple: continue to build on the excellent platform built by Walter Tieck and Dayle Savage. We have already secured Diane Watson and Amanda Blanck as committee members and are looking to add at least one more member.

The Professional Development Committee has set the following two goals for 2019:

  • Provide high-quality programs in a variety of modalities for a range of coaches (varied in discipline and experience). 

  • Improve the professional profile of coaching and the business success of our members.

INTERNATIONAL COACHING CERTIFICATION | 2019 SCHEDULE

International Coaching Certification

For more info >>


Nashville-based, Radiant Coaches Academy, offers both in-person and a self-paced online professional coach ACSTH training (that provides 65 ICF-accredited hours). 

Holistic Coach Certification

The self-paced online training allows trainees to go at their own speed, and complete the program at their convenience. Then, trainees meet other Radiant Coaches Academy coaches online Mondays and Thursdays from 7-8pm each week to get live coaching, answers to their questions, and the support they need to complete their certification.

This online coaching program uses neurolinguistic programming, gamification, and artificial intelligence to give you, as a coach-in-training, the richest possible online experience and to ensure trainees are motivated, inspired, and able to implement what is learned.
