How to Schedule OUT Overwhelm

Guest Speaker - Cara Wilson

Wednesday, March 27th, 2024 12:00PM - 1:30PM PT

(Will continue every 4th Wednesday of the month)


Are you finding yourself overwhelmed trying to manage the minutes and feeling like achieving work like balance is impossible? What if we told you that was because you CAN'T balance work and life (that's like balancing grains of sand against the whole beach) but you could align it... simply, easily, and in a way that is repeatable every day and week?

Join Cara, as she has a tool just for this.

Session FAQs

Who can volunteer as a presenter and co-host for a session of For Coaches By Coaches?

  • Anyone interested in presenting should complete the Interest Intake sheet. Submissions will be considered based on availability, alignment to our chapter's mission, and in context of other educational events and programs the chapter is offering. Submissions to the interest form are not guaranteed selection for leading a By Coaches For Coaches event. We reserve the right to decline topics.

How will I know I have been selected?

  • Co-director of Programming will be reaching out to all the coaches with submissions by end of the month in which we have received the submissions, conveying if they have been selected, and sharing 3 options of sessions. The coach member will have to then confirm their availability for one of the sessions, which will then get confirmed in the calendar along with their topic.

When will it be held?

  • Coaches Create will be held at 12pm-1:30pm on the fourth Wednesday of every month, starting from February.

  • Each session will be 60 minutes long, with the co-hosting coach initiating the session with ~20 - 30 minutes of presentation on the topic, followed by 30 minutes of discussion including Q&A

Will CCEUs be offered for these sessions?

  • CCEUs will not be offered for these sessions in general, unless the presenter applies to ICF for competency credits themselves. They can reach out to the Co-Directors of Programming to understand the process.

What are the restrictions on advertising my business through this?

  • The coaches will be given 5 minutes at the end to share about their offerings, provided all the Q&A has been done.
