Beds, Herts & Bucks Coaching Community (BHBCC)
We would like to thank all those that attended our September Coach Community get together. It was a delight and a privilege to hear the coaching demonstration by Karen Dean. To then reflect on and analyse the coaching through the lens of the ICF competencies proved once again the key role of contracting and forming the coaching agreement.
We also enjoyed the reading from Karen’s book “Coaching Stories - Flowing and Falling of Being a Coach” Dean, Humphrey.
For those ICF credentialed coaches we are delighted to say that the September session has been recognised as high-quality CPD by the ICF and they have awarded the session 1.5 Core Competence Units and 0.5 Resource Development Unit. We will be applying for CCEU’s for every session.
On October 14th we will be having our first face to face meeting, 7 pm-9 pm, kindly hosted by our friends at Potential Squared in Berkhamsted, 3 Churchgates, The Wilderness, Berkhamsted, HP4 2UB - there are 5 parking spaces at the office or plenty of local parking out of office hours.
This meeting will be an opportunity to connect, share stories and experience some quality feedback through live coaching triads.
Please book prior to 4th October so we can plan for numbers and keep our hosts informed of those expected. We have had a lot of interest in the October meeting and we will be providing a light buffet.
Thank you to all of you who have joined us so far and we look forward to further building our (mostly) virtual community.
This group is open to any trained coaches, who are members of the ICF or equalivant coaching body.
The aims of the group are to:
- Give opportunities for peer coaching and feedback on ICF Competencies
- Support the coaching profession by providing quality peer support and professional supervision.
- Provide mentor coaching
- Provide accessible development and supervision for those focusing on their CPD and wanting to gain some CCEUs
- Share new knowledge through inviting speakers or learnings from our own personal studies
- Create a space for collaborative work on live issues through action learning
We meet alternately on the 2nd Monday or Tuesday of each month from 19.00-21.00, virtually via Zoom (see schedule below). We also meet face to face three times a year as we have been offered the use of some lovely offices in the centre of Berkhamstead.
Schedule / Focus; Each month Fiona & Lesley will set a focus for the work that follows
Month 1: Triad work with feedback against the ICF competencies. Everyone gets the chance to coach and be coached.
Month 2: Group Supervision led by Fiona & Lesley
Month 3: Action Learning: individuals will have an opportunity to present and work on broader coaching conundrums
Month 4: Speaker
We will adhere to the ICF Code of Ethics & ICF Core Competencies or equalivent for coaches from other codes of practice.
Confidentiality is essential: Chatham house rules apply. Our learning is ours to own, nothing else leaves the room.
We will practice, compassion, humility and kindness, with of course support and challenge.
We want to have fun whilst furthering our profession
