This month we will have a special even in honor of International Coaching Week to thank you as a coach. This month's program will feature Tim Ressmeyer, PH.D., PCC giving a large scale Happy Hour Coaching® demo along with facilitating an open discussion on innovative ways to apply coaching skills. Everything from content, pricing, marketing, etc. of innovative methods are fair game.

Plus, this special chapter meeting will include a cash bar, hour d'oeuvres, door prizes and a special announcement, all with a view of Chicago from the 66th floor of Willis Tower.

Group coaching can expand beyond the traditional comparison with workshops and training! Tim Ressmeyer has created the Happy Hour Coach® to help make coaching more accessible to those who haven't experienced coaching, and to bring a unique offering into both public and corporate settings. The goal is to create an environment where substantive coaching and learning takes place, yet it is informal and “in the spirit of a happy hour.” Cocktails and appetizers are typically part of the experience, but it can be held in any setting! Tim has created over 25 different content modules for Happy Hour Coach® and delivered sessions in bars, restaurants, conference centers, and at corporate offices in Illinois, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, and even Las Vegas. In this special session for the ICF, Tim will lead participants through a scaled back version of an HHC event where participants will craft their own Personal Impact Statement. The remainder of the session will be a facilitated conversation where participants can discuss, share, and innovate additional ways to apply their coaching skills in new and creative ways. Everything from content, pricing, marketing, etc. of innovative methods are fair game for discussion!
