BBG @ ICF-CT: Life Lessons in Leadership Coaching

Your Leadership Journey: Life Lessons in Leadership Coaching

Todd Cherches; Carol Shear (ICF-CT president); Steve Cherches

We all know that our life experiences shape us as individuals. Yet, how often do we make the time and take the time to reflect back on those experiences to gain a better understanding of who we are and how we are as leaders...and as coaches?

In this fun, fast-paced, and highly-interactive workshop, we led the Connecticut chapter of the International Coach Federation (ICF) on a journey of exploration from the past to the present...and into the future.

Among the key themes covered in this 90-minute workshop:

* Exploring the metaphor of the Leadership Journey;

* Discovering who we are as leaders based on how the life stories from our past shape our present; 

* Envisioning how we can apply the journey metaphor and our own life lessons in a coaching context.

BBG Proudly Presents at ICF Connecticut


BigBlueGumball presented at the monthly chapter meeting of the International Coach Federation (ICF) in Connecticut on January 25th on the Power of Visual Thinking to explore how visual thinking and visual communication can be leveraged as a coaching tool. Sincere thanks to ICF-CT for hosting such a terrific event...and for welcoming us New Yorkers up to Norwalk!

Here's what they had to say...

For our January Workshop, we were fortunate to have Todd Cherches and Steve Cherches, founders of BigBlueGumball, LLC. These guys were on fire! And they used that fire to inspire and empower everyone in attendance!

They modeled the three learning styles (visual, auditory, kinesthetic) in every aspect of their dynamic presentation, "The Power of Visual Thinking: An Innovative Approach to More Effective Presenting & Coaching." Of course, the visuals were the main course - a visual feast; and the speakers impressed us with great slides and a fast-paced, humorous presentation. Their information was state-of-the-art and very inspiring.

Steve and Todd’s main message was "Educate, Engage, Excite," and that is what they did. Some of the comments among our members included phrases like "this was the best workshop in many years;" "In one hour I learned several things I was doing wrong and a dozen ways to correct them;" "I don’t think I ever realized how visuals really keep things clear and simple, but now I really see that a picture is worth 1000 words."
