Long Island's Chapter of the International Coach Federation hosted two exciting events during Coaching Week 2018. Our first event was a panel discussion at the Hillside Library by five coaches with different areas of expertise. I was the moderator. The coaches were: Maribeth Kraus, a women's transition career coach, Joshua Lissauer, a personal branding coach, Lois Cooper, a prosperity coach, and Marc Miller and John Little who are both executive leadership coaches. Marc is also a certified divorce coach. During the Q&A, the attendees asked a number of interesting questions. One question was "What book would you recommend?". I'll relay the answers in a future blog.

The second event was a speed coaching/networking meeting at the Urban League. The five coaches and I each had a private area to conduct speed coaching sessions. Each coach provided a 1:1 focused, confidential, goal-oriented conversation using ICF's structure. Those who were coached were very satisfied with their first experience with coaching. In fact, one person asked when we coaches were coming back to offer more sessions.
