Hello 3CP Alums and Friends of the Program!
I trust you are enjoying the summer. It is that time of year where we are working to secure "volunteer clients" of the next conduct of the Advanced Coaching Intensive segment of the program. Those of you who are alums know how important this is to the overall experience. We leverage our various channels @ Columbia University, yet we like to ask you to reach out to your network of working professionals who might be both willing to spend an afternoon, and would benefit from an afternoon of free, professional coaching.
NOTE: Columbia Program Alums should not serve as volunteer clients, doing so creates unevenness in the process. Those of you have are interested to our program might consider volunteerting, it a good way to have a direct experience with the learning climate. Below is a rather detailed invitation that you can used to craft a message specifically for your network, it is important to include the "Google Doc" information.
This is an invitation to participate in "An Afternoon of Executive and Organizational Coaching," on Thursday, July 25, 2019! The coaching sessions will take place between 1:00 to 5:00 PM (no later than 5:30 PM); with an optional lunch from 12:00 to 12:50 PM. The Advanced Coach Intensive (ACI), is part of a 1-year professional coaching development program. As part of the certification process, each candidate completes an oral exam by coaching a "client" we provide for 30 minutes, on a topic of the client's choice. The exam is observed by two examiners (1 member of our instructional team and 1 external examiner with the ICF).
Serving as a client is an excellent way to learn more about the program, by: (1) being coached by some of our candidates; (2) interacting between sessions with other participants and the program's faculty director; and (3) meeting our program faculty. Continue to read more below for additional information and spread the word to working professionals you know in the Metro New York City area who might enjoy and benefit from an afternoon of coaching.
NOTE: each client will have 2 to 3 half hour coaching sessions (by different program candidates).
