Join us Aug 3 for Coaching Social and Emotional Intelligence when our guest speaker, Dawn Cook, PCC, will facilitate a discussion around what Social and Emotional Intelligence (SEI) is and how it impacts the workplace. We will also look at what clients are doing to develop SEI, the challenges of coaching SEI, and the tools you need to successfully coach SEI. Additionally, Dawn will share the single most effective technique for garnering the attention and buy in of even the most skeptical coachee. If you spend any time coaching SEI in your practice, you will want to be a part of this presentation!

Message from our President
How does one measure the pride people feel for their professional organization? I see it when our community gathers together each month for learning, networking, and support. I feel and experience it in the spirit of commitment, volunteerism, and collaboration that exists amongst our talented board, and committees, and members who work tirelessly to create and implement the ICF Houston Chapter experience.
There are other important signs of ICF Houston pride: each year more and more individuals explore and join our growing community of professional coaches. Each year sponsors express growing confidence in our organization through their generous financial contributions that help support our innovative programs and exciting new initiatives.
Since 2002 ICF Houston has built a reputation as a community of purposeful professional coaches committed to making a difference - professionally and personally - through their talents, leadership, and service.
The ability to affect true change begins with a belief in the power of the individual and a vision of what can be. That is the essence of what our ICF Houston Chapter is all about. Our clients realize their full potential in partnership with our inspiring community of professional coaches as they explore their interests, develop their strengths as leaders and thinkers, and prepare for a lifetime of change and growth.
If you are among the generations of individuals who are personally and professionally committed to constant, and never-ending growth, and are committed to helping others achieving the same, let me extend a warm welcome to our community. For those who are just learning about our ICF Houston Chapter, I hope you will enjoy exploring our Web site. We look forward to introducing you to the great qualities and people you'll find in our ICF Houston Chapter.
