Newsletter – May 2024

Dear ICF HK members, 

As coaches, we thrive on supporting clients’ personal transformations and providing space for them to reach their “aha”-moments that light up their world! While these experiences are what motivate us, we also want to have support systems that make our coaching practices more impactful and more sustainable. That is why ICF HK exists. We are here to be the supportive community of like-minded coaches who can share our collective knowledge, help each other along our coaching journeys, and form a volunteer organization that empowers us to be the best coaches we can be. Welcome to ICF HK, and we look forward to serving you, our fellow ICF HK Members!

ICF HK was created in 2010 and currently serve over 570 members who reside mostly in Hong Kong or mainland China. To better support your development, we will host monthly events: on May 2nd, we had a Coach Supervision session to improve your coaching competency. After all, even the best grand piano will need fine-tuning from time to time! In addition, we’ll have a Mandarin CCE hour on May 14th to further our continued education in a local language. We also plan to invite current coaching practitioners to share their coaching tools with the wider community on May 22nd.
