In the lovely and lively country of Trinidad and Tobago, ICA recently sponsored a series of workshops in January and March where more than 50 local human resource professionals, managers and coaches joined our warm and dynamic learning community.
Led by ICA training director Merci Miglino, MCC and ICA grad Anthony Hadeed, PCC, participants engaged in experiencing first-hand the rich training content of ICAs core curriculum.
The unique face-to-face workshops were presented in two levels. In Level 1, held in January, we covered the Coaching Fundamentals, and in March’s Level 2, our theme “Hit the road running as an effective Coach with practical tools” had participants coaching each other for even more sustainable learning.
Covering the fundamentals of being a coach, participants explored the difference between coaching and other forms of “helping” such as consulting and mentoring as well as gaining a better understanding of the essential skills and attributes required to be a coach. A good part of the Level 2 training featured ‘real life’ coaching demos by Merci and Anthony with feedback on the application of the competencies and techniques covered in Level 1.
Among those in attendance were several ICA grads – (there were 2 grads I believe that came to level one – I would have to double check or have someone double check against the list of participants) – who attended to freshen their coaching skills and connect with the growing professional coaching network in Trinidad and shared their personal experience of being a part of ICA’s global, virtual community.
Energized and enthused, several participants choose to continue their love and pursuit of coaching by enrolling in our Vocational and Certified Coaching Programs so we welcome new students:
