Hi! If you are like me, you’ve been coaching in organizations for more than a decade, working with leaders and teams at various strategic and interpersonal levels of leadership, and you’ve been hungry for the camaraderie of top peers with which to engage in a higher conversation. Perhaps you’ve sought out and participated in the various communities that exist in the coaching industry. Or, perhaps like me, you’ve invested time and energy into building new communities.
Are your needs being met?
Do you find that on many occasions the work of coaches who deal with organizational dynamics, leadership, and corporate challenges are lumped into one group with all coaches? Our work is really different from that of life coaches or sports coaches, and our challenges, best practices, and playing field are unique. Should we perhaps be a distinct profession? At the very least, we need a place to come together to support each other, co-create, contribute, and create colleagueship in service to the stewardship of the work we do as coaches in business. Together, we have the capacity to impact leadership and business and government far in excess of the results we can each create on our own. That’s why I am setting forth to build a new community. A new forum for those of us who coach in organizations, with a focus on leadership. As an executive coach for 16 years, I’ve been seeking a particular tribe or community of like-minded colleagues who aim to synergistically change the face of business leadership globally.
The super-short video below (it’s 2 and a half minutes long) is an introduction to the community I want to build: The Leading Coaches’ Playground. Please share your comments below about this concept, this video intro, and what you think it needs…oh, and please share this with anyone you think fits the description!
