International Coaching Week (ICW)


DAY 1: Hungry to Serve



7 pm to 8pm ET

Hungry to Serve
The positive impact of pro bono coaching


Many coaches choose the profession because they want to make a difference in people’s lives. Pro bono coaching and coaching in non-profit organizations can help coaches amplify that impact by making coaching available to leaders who otherwise wouldn’t have access to it.

In this session, you will hear from participants in the ICF Philadelphia’s Ignite program – an initiative spearheaded by the ICF Foundation to provide coaching to non-profit organizations whose mission aligns with the United Nations’ 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. You will also learn about the chapter’s CEAD program (Coaching Employees of African Descent) and hear from an executive coach whose practice is largely focused on coaching non-profit leaders.

Who is this for?

This session is for non-profit business leaders who are curious about how coaching can benefit them, their teams and their clients. It is also for coaches who are interested in learning more about pro bono coaching, coaching for non-profits and the great work being done by the ICF Philadelphia Chapter.

DAY 2: Hungry for Connection

11:30 am to 1:00 pm ET

Hungry for connection
An immersive experience in curiosity and candor


The traditional “ice breaker” exercise enables groups to develop a quick connection to work together productively; but what if that exercise could create a deep and lasting connection? Participants in this session will experience the Fast Friends Exercise created by the UC Berkeley Greater Good in Action initiative. Working in pairs, attendees will learn how to use powerful questioning to form a stronger connection with someone new.

Who is this for?

Anyone who is curious about other people, willing to be a little vulnerable and perhaps make new friends and expand your professional network. Coaches and leaders can experience the Fast Friends technique and find ways to embed it into their practice capabilities, people strategy, or building strong social or support networks.
