Recording of this call can be found here:  



Dear Career Coaches:

Our next Career Coach SIG meeting will be a webinar on Wednesday, November 12th, 2014, from 12:00 – 1:00 PM ET via phone (425) 440-5100, PIN 093980# or via the web at:  (Note: You will receive 1 ICF CCU credit for this call if you attend live.

My co-host, Nora Whalen, and I are delighted to announce that our guest speaker will be Josh Dykstra, who will be presenting: “The Magic Of Strengths-Based Coaching: Helping Your Clients Unearth Their Genius”.


Program Description:

Research shows that the most effective leaders in the world share one surprising trait: they know their strengths and they work in them almost all the time. By attending this session, you will discover a fresh perspective to share with the clients you work with, and learn why a focus on “what’s right with people” is surprisingly counter-intuitive — and perhaps the most important insight you can provide someone who desires to live an exceptional life with a remarkable career!

Participants will deepen and stretch their knowledge of several core coaching competencies, including:

  • How to create greater personal awareness for coaching clients, particularly in the areas of enduring personality strengths and natural sources of energy.
  • How to design better action plans for coaching clients by aligning individual goals with unique personal motivators and therefore achieving more success.
  • How to manage progress and accountability for coaching clients by integrating action plans with personal strengths, thereby developing greater resilience to meet objectives.
