International Coaching Week

  INTERNATIONAL COACHING WEEK, 2019!                                                          

This year International Coaching Week (ICW) is April 29th through May 5th and is held around the world where nearly 36,000 International Coach Federation (ICF) members in 145 countries will celebrate the power of coaching. In Houston, we’re adding a few more days before and after because we want to celebrate the value of working with a professional coach even longer! Whether you are a new coach, a seasoned coach or someone curious about coaching, this is THE week to #ExperienceCoaching and celebrate it.

You can get involved with networking events like a morning “Coaches & Coffee” or our evening happy hour, or attend the Busting Assumptions for Career Seekers workshop in partnership with Workforce Solutions. And you won’t want to miss the week’s signature event – a panel discussion showcasing the value of coaching at the ICF Houston chapter monthly meeting.

Help us celebrate coaching!
Some events are open and free to the public, and some require registration. Join with us at the events listed below and help us, Houston and others around the world #ExperienceCoaching.
