However, our capacity for partnership is limited. Each organization that is not chosen for the partnership will be given the opportunity to have a free workshop on a coaching topic that directly relates to the needs of the organization as outlined in the proposal.
Applications for the pro bono coaching partnerships can be submitted through 12 p.m. on Friday, March 29, 2019.
Organizations and companies of any size or status are eligible to apply.
ICF Chicago is looking at the entities need and overall impact that coaching will provide.
All assigned coaches are credentialed with ICF and are a member of the Chicago chapter. They each follow the ICF Code of Ethics which includes confidentiality.
Each member of your entity who is assigned a coach will be provided with four (4) coaching sessions. Most coaching sessions happen either weekly or bi-weekly depending on the need of the individual. They will happen virtually, unless otherwise agreed on between the coach and the individual.
Coaching is most effective if:
• It is not forced upon a person; that they are open to coaching • The individual has a goal(s) that they are looking to accomplish • It is understood that coaching is not therapy, counseling, or consulting
Entities will be notified about partnerships on or before April 15, 2019.
