2019 Education Groups

Check out our education groups! These groups offer great opportunities to receive support for your development as a professional coach, deepen your mastery of coaching, connect with your colleagues, and explore new territory. And most of them offer CCE’s! For 2019, there are eight education groups to choose from, including five new options. All of the groups are included in your ICF-CO activity fee - no matter how many you join!


Most of the groups are designed to be ongoing, so participants will build on their development and their connection to the group over the course of the year. Attendance at all sessions is strongly encouraged in order to get the most out of the experience.


Some groups will meet in person & others on Zoom (or a combo of virtual and in-person). The virtual programs are a great way for coaches located outside of the Greater Denver Metro area to connect with the wider ICF-CO community and take advantage of our education programs from anywhere in Colorado and beyond! We will once again be offering a Continuous Coaching Development Group in Colorado Springs, and we are adding another in Northern Colorado. 

Cost: If you've paid your ICF-CO Activity Fee, there's no charge! 
Otherwise, you're welcome to join as many groups as you like for $99 total per year.

Group size is limited and is each group is designed as a continuing cohort for the year. Grab your spot(s) quickly!

This group is a social and supportive group to its participants and has been meeting for many years. Everyone attending has time reserved for sharing. The subject of the sharing is up to the participant and may be either personal or professional. The other members of the group are committed to listening and sometimes may ask questions or comment on what the person sharing has talked about. Everything that is talked about is confidential. Anyone who has been coaching for five years or more may enjoy being part of this group. The benefits increase as a person makes coming to the group a habit and forms deeper friendships with the other members of the group.
