The Future of Coaching - It's Ours to Create

Featuring Sara Smith, MCC and ICF Global Board Vice Chair

CCEU Credits Expected

Sara Smith will share her thoughts about the future of coaching and the work that ICF is doing to create that future.  We will talk about what the ICF is doing to increase the visibility and understanding of coaching across the globe, and you’ll hear how credentialing, ethics and ICF-sponsored research help create more opportunities for us all.  Find out how you can take advantage of the many ways membership offers value to you and your practice.  Also, there will be an opportunity to ask any questions you have about the ICF.
