Have You Registered Yet for the ICF Regional Midwest Conference?

If not, what’s holding you back from registering?  The next ICF Midwest Regional Conference is not until 2018!  So, if you miss this conference, you’ll have to wait two more years for this kind of line up of speakers and content.

We have a fantastic line up of engaging speakers featured at this year’s conference.  In addition to our keynote, Marshall Goldsmith, we will have Karen Keller.  She will be speaking about Coaching Leaders to Influence by Choice NOT by Chance.

Everyone is a leader – or at least has the potential to be. Future leaders are asking, “If I’m not influential, how can I make a difference?” The demand for leadership coaching by individuals and organizations is greater than ever before. Coaches need to understand influence and how it applies to their clients’ needs. This session provides coaches the opportunity to create influential leaders by introducing them to the Keller Influence Indicator® (KII™). This assessment tool measures a person’s Seven Influence Traits™: confidence, commitment, courage, passion, empowering, trustworthiness and likeability. Today’s leaders are eager to unlock the door to becoming as influential as they can be. Come prepared to create, coach and learn!

KellerKaren Keller, MCC, Ph.D., CEO of Karen Keller International, Inc., is author/creator of the Keller Influence Indicator® (KII®). She is a clinical psychologist and Master Certified Coach specializing in influence and human behavior. Dr. Keller develops programs, materials and resources relating to the Art of Influence.

2016 Steering CommitteeThe 2016 Steering Committee is already hard at work planning next year’s Midwest Regional Conference in Indianapolis!  We couldn’t wait to get started, and had our first official meeting in Kansas City.  Our bi-weekly conference calls started in July.

I want to introduce our amazing team for 2016:  Barbara Bougher, Host City Chair (ICF-Indianapolis), Amber Maynard, Marketing Chair (ICF-Indianapolis), John Moore, Program Chair (ICF-Heartland), Heather Bradley, Registration Chair (ICF-Michigan), Anne Papinchak, Special Events Chair (ICF-Pittsburgh), Karla Walker, Sponsor Chair (ICF-Wisconsin), Joyce Wietrecki, Volunteer Chair (ICF-Chicago), Susan Slocum, MRAC Treasurer (ICF-Chicago) and yours truly, Julia Mattern, Conference  Chair (ICF-Indianapolis).  Once the city for the 2017 conference is chosen, we will also be joined by a representative from that chapter, who will serve as Chair-Elect.

If you want to join our team and be part of planning this unique coaching conference, it’s not too late!  We are still looking for people to join our Marketing, Special Events and Sponsor Teams, as well as people to volunteer on-site at next year’s conference (help with registration, stamp passports, introduce speakers, etc.).  Volunteering for the conference is a great opportunity to build your leadership and teamwork skills, contribute something valuable to the coaching profession, and build relationships with coaches from across the region.  And it’s fun!
